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! […]

Day 235

There is a good reason I don’t like to edit photos after 10pm.  Apparently I shouldn’t build stuff after dinner, either. We finished up about 11:30pm after working most of the day it got to 102F in Kalispell.  We broke for dinner at Famous Dave’s..and came back and put the bed board base section on […]

Day 234

More trailer building! The master cutter at work!  We kept coming up with stuff that fit and was straight or an actual 90 degrees.  That worried us a lot. The cargo portion nearing completion. Somewhat dubious looks…{!-{P Fitting the tent/sleeping compartment on top of the cargo section. And no, it isn’t a coffin. ~Curtis in […]

Day 233

The beginnings of trailer construction.  The planning has only been 31 years in the making… The basic under carriage. Checking on the frame fit. It is easier to paint before construction on some parts. Starting to attach the pieces! And as a reward for our hard work, I made a pineapple upside-down cake!  In a […]

Day 231

The real purpose of my trip to Kalispell, besides the Dailylife Grandpop’s 93 Birthday, was to build a camper trailer to pull behind my 1995 Goldwing.  My old trailer sacrificed a lot of parts for this! ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 185

Happy Independence Day! It does represent a Freedom to me!  Made in the USofA!  Ohio, to be precise… ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>
