The wife did not want cabinet doors on the interior shelves so we opted with just a shelf edge to hold items in.

Then the last thing to put on was the license plate. Added the LED lights and used the bottom bolts to hold on the plate.

The Maiden Voyage was a 300 mile round trip to meet up with some other Tear Drop owners staying in Hells Canyon. It was their Fall Crawl event. Had a great time though it was too short.

Ran the trailer up to 80mph on the freeway no sway, no vibrations, no explosions, no flyaways!. I really just could not tell it was there. Except when I looked in the rear view mirror and thought my trunk was open. Which was funny because my Jeep does not have a trunk.... :lol:

Looks great! I like how you did the folding cooking table suspension cables.
