Hurray to drag'nwagon for being the big winner. As a small side bar, does anyone know what tow vehicle Wally was towing with and what color it was?

Shari - don't mean to hijack your contest here but we could extend it if it's OK, let me know.

Yes, I shook my head at all the rivets!

So this is what happens when you are busy working on your trailer and not checking the forum... I feel like I missed out. All the answers are right about the panels, but the truth is Wally is covering the spot where his folding bike banged into the trailer. He was so ashamed by his action, that he stood there for four days straight covering the dent with his hand. A sign painter was brought in to letter the trailer with all the caravan locations he had attended, so that no one could see the dent. A new tradition of painting the front curbside corner was born because of Wally's accident. This is truly an important photo.

Well, I burned up the private message system - had to be a record for me. Thanks for the contest Shari. I'm not all the into the number of panel and model types, but I do like the muti panels.

In a PM from PeeWee, I received the following:

TeeHeeHee!

Actually, it's what I did on a very lazy Friday while at work dreaming of working on our trailer! I'm going out now...it's 'warmed up' to 45.
