Day 271

My long awaited camper trailer…that is getting a coat of green paint and removed from the trailer to be put in the back of the truck. It is a much better trailer than truck camper… ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 243

Coming back from Seattle where I dropped the Dailylife Wife for her flight to Ireland I spied my first Amazon Prime truck on the downhill slope into /\/\onTana! from Idaho. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 162

A Father’s Day collection of Dad! Nothing new, but good photos. {!-{> ~Curtis in /\/\onTana…and history! {!-{>

Day 137

A new addition at the Barrow Family Garage & Parking Emporium: a 2008 Ford F150 XLT with the 6 1/2 foot bed! It has a 5.4 liter V-8 that gets the same mileage as the smaller engines but ups the towing capacity over our Pilot by more than 50%. There are a few dings and […]

Day 54

My motorcycle camp trailer in Winter Storage. Before the last 14″. And before the next 6″. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 252

I finally got to work on the Camper again!  I added some framing to the roof section that was sagging.   It stopped the sag! Here is a close up.  The 1×2 was as a spacer so the 2×2 would fit into the lid better when it is closed. But I didn’t like the way […]

Day 246

More Motorcycle camper! The sleeper from the end. A detail of the end. Looking the other way. The view from within. The overall look.  As you can see there is a small problem: the roof sags.  I will need to put in another 2×2 support lengthwise and across each end.  The ends will make it […]

Day 245

More Motorcycle camper! So it is starting to take shape.  The roof swings out and then you raise the ends to support it.   Now you can see how it looks, for those who didn’t understand my exquisitely hand drawn 3D plans! From the back end. From the front. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 244

More Motorcycle camper! One minor little problem I hadn’t foreseen.  That sheet of plywood inside the lid unfolds to form the roof.  Or it would if it was about 3 inches narrower… So, take the lid off and cut it to fit. The top/lid without the roof section. Then all back together and it will […]

Day 243

More Motorcycle camper! Something to remember when building a camper trailer:  Put the jacks/stabilizers on FIRST. Otherwise you end up doing strange things to get them on. Kind of an interesting photo though.  You don’t want to see this angle while riding, however. The trailer top, vertical. Bike and trailer. Jacks jacked. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! […]
