Haven't said much but I've enjoyed following along.

Nice work. :thumbsup:

It is very clean looking. With the aluminum on it, the trailer should last you a long, long time. :thumbsup: :applause:

Just a cool picture. These were license plates that were sold as mementos for the 50th anniversary of the Alcan Highway.

Great job on your trailer. Well done. By the way, me and the misses will be up in Alaska the last week in June. No where near you though.

Thank you for the kind words. If you will be driving in Alaska, pick up a "Milepost" book. Full of info about driving/ camping travel to and within Alaska. Enjoy your trip. Bryan

I hear great things about the cruise. June is an ideal time in Alaska. You will experience the longest daylight hours of summer. Bryan

Installed the hatch struts finally. Another item checked off the final to-do list. I used 20" struts rated at 100 lbs. Distance from hinge pivot point to upper ball mount is 7.25". I used the hatch strut calculator on this website and it worked perfect. Wahoo! Bryan

Also installed the front rock guard today. It is .090" mill finish aluminum. Lots of gravel roads in Alaska, hopefully this sacrificial piece will keep it looking good longer.

Thank you for your kind praise. I think the diamond plate will look great. I am sure your teardrop will turn out super! Keep up the good work. Bryan
