Gaucho is gone. New floor and recliners are now being used as I type.

2 x 100 watt panels. Should be plenty for our meager power usage. Also did a 350w inverter.

New tabletops

We picked up our new tabletops last week and, with a few minor details to finish, I've just about got them installed.

We met a young craftsman and his fiancť at our local pancake festival and asked if he could make tops for our 68 Overlander. He works in all beautiful hardwoods with a rustic look. His name is Adam Billstone of Warren, PA.

With the kitchen counter done, I was able to complete the gas system hook ups and testing. The trailer is now officially camp-worthy (although we've already spent 5 nights in it, adjusting plans and adding ideas.)

I'll figure out how to start a thread with a few more photos of the tabletops.

skydog, thanks. Just trying to get a handle on what works for just the basics.

No sure I need the inverter. Just the basic... refer (on propane) ,music for sure...a few lights prudently managed & maybe HWH (on propane)... I can boil water for coffee. 200W sound like a round number. Next mod is is2 6v GC batts swapping out the 12V interstate 24's.

thx

A Honda 2000i Companion generator so I can run the AC here in northern Minnesota. It's been hitting 90 degrees. Only $999 at L&M supply. With less sales tax here I save $125 over buying at home.

Our propane-fired Honda EU2000i companion arrived last Monday, and yesterday we broke it in where we are dry camping for the weekend. Works great!

Nice! We just use fridge, occasional heat at night and the HWH. Swapped all the light bulbs for LEDs for about $20 so almost no draw there. I should be able to stay out as long as I want now. We did the inverter just to charge devices and wanted to have it for the off chance we want to put on a DVD for the kids.

Next mod for me is a 3" lift.

At my age, it sounds like something I could use.

The suspension is modified with 3" steel frame members interposed that elevate the trailer frame that much higher.

Going from the stock 14" ST tires on our 2015 23D to 15" SenDel wheels with 15" Michelin LTX (P) 235/75R15 XL tires (there is a newer model tire out as of June 2016) elevated the trailer about 1.1" to the same elevation of our original 2013 25FB with the same model Michelin tires. That allowed our 2007 Mercedes ML320 CDI diesel that towed the 25FB with the Hensley Arrow hitch to use all the same settings on the 23 with that same hitch.
