Help

I am looking for someone to R&R my Zip Dee awning Material that I have and maybe install a wood floor in my 28 ft Squarestream trailer that is at the Castle Airport, Atwater CA.
Since I live in it when I am working there I can not take it to a dealer and have not found a dealer that will come out to do the work.
If any one knows of someone in the area that would come out I sure would like to hear from them.
I do have free Boondocking next to me and the Castle Air Museum has a full service RV park on the airport.

Still no one to do the job.Look's like I will have to wait till I can take the trailer back to AZ.
Guess this is why they pay me BIG $$ to come from AZ to work in CA.

Well we are back in Atwater Ca the black tank of CA. When we got back found that our refrigerator had died after only 26 years.
Now the problem is the only replacement ones are 2" taller and do not know if a new one will fit.BUT no one that sells them will come out to measure to see if it will fit.. Why do so many folk here that have so called serves do not want the work.?
I was born and raised here and when I turned 18 I left because it was a damn poor state to live in all they want to do is raise high taxes and pass new laws then and now , 64 year latter it has got worse.
Time to give up helping friend and go back to a real State AZ where folk will work when you want to hire them.
Can any one tell me why they live here.

Flew my Cessna in and out of that airport last month. Huge runway, almost 12,000 feet. I had almost climbed 1,000 feet before reaching the end of the runway. It must have been home to some large air Force bombers in it's say. Now it's largely unused.

You may need to take your trailer to a service center for repairs instead. Then rent a motel room near the airport while at work. Maybe some other full timers will chime in on how to get major repairs done. Toscano RV Airstream in Los Banos may be a good option.

Yep sure is quiet here we are the biggest think on the airport with the C-130's. EXCEPT when CA burns then the fire tanker base can get lot of aircraft.
It was a B-52 base when it closed about 1996.
If I have to go to all the work to take the trailer to the dealer I might as well go home to AZ

They do NOT do model RM2801 any more.
BUT maybe hope, a man came out today and looked at it and will see what he can do to fix or replace it. It is close fit for new one since they are 2" taller. He will let me know next week.
