Are you going to run the brake electric wiring under/outside belly pan?

I'm running the brake wires up into/under the kitchen cabinets, and then into the walls. If there is ever a problem, I'll just cut those wires off and leave them in the walls, and re-run new wires under the trailer.

Hired a pro to get my dents out before I put the shell back on. Still just waiting on inca plastics to send my wheel wells.... And they are taking their sweet sweet time

Those aluminum banana wraps are a challenging part to make. Compound curves. I'm not too sure where to start if I had to form one on an English wheel. But there are metal workers who can. Amazing.

Tap, tap, tap carefully and I'll bet they turn out pretty good.

I wonder what year the banana wraps went to a molded plastic part? The plastic ones don't dent, they just break. And they are less cost.

Look at that California sunshine! Here: snow, wind and 0 degrees. My dog won't even go out in it. New England, much worse. Winters are not fun.

Your wheelhouse came finally. Were they molded? I don't think I've ever seen one like that. Interesting.

Buy a keg and get the guys to carefully place the shell back on.

Just made this piece out of aluminum instead of steel to prevent another corrosive reaction like the one you are seeing up above on the skin

Great work. Those wheel wells look pretty nice. Q How much clearance do you have there above the fat tires? For my still to take life project I'm thinking 6" is the minimum above the rubber with the Timbrens.

I am making boxes to extend the clearance of the wheel wells to 5.5 inches above the tires. From the looks of it, those timbrens will only travel about 3 inches. Inca didn't have anything for a single axle that would be tall enough so this is the best I could come up with.

Good solution

That's a neat idea. When I asked timbren about travel distance they suggested allowing 3" over the full load dimension so you are probably right on the money. I decided I was over analyzing my well needs and just put them in for duplication albeit out of a heavier gauge sheet

I'm still loving the deep dish chrome rims :-)

I started a new thread which only got one response, so figured I'd ask my good buddies over here:

For those of you that stay at RV parks, where would you recommend placing my cable tv input and power input on the trailer? Thanks!

Cable TV? What's that? I have found fewer and fewer RV parks have cable TV available anymore. Folks bring there own antenna. Satellites!

Hook ups are generally available on the street side, usually toward the rear of the trailer. Water and sewer connections are mostly located toward the rear street side.

That's where I located my "utilities" connection points on my Trade Wind project. I carry roughly 20 feet of cord, hose, and sewer hose so I can reach hook ups that don't follow the typical convention.
