We just bought land in Canyon that backs up to part of Palo Duro Canyon. The park is one of my favorite places to go out and hike and enjoy (although Caprock Canyon SP isn't far behind that).

I didnt' know about the RV museum, next time I'm in the area, I'll have to go check it out. They are the lone AS dealer in the area. But I've not seen an AS on their lot when we've passed by on the highway.

Size check...

I've progressed to the point of being ready to construct the table tops. To check size, I've set in place in the trailer a part of the sliding mechanism, leg, and the table top pattern that I'll be using as my router template. This gives me the last look before making sawdust.

As shown, the table top is 29" wide and 20" deep. The folding part of the top will be the same width (duh!), and the depth will be 19"... this results in an opened-out table size of 29" X 39" ... approximately the same size as the original factory table.

So, as it appears in the attached photo will be how the table will be in its "afternoon tea" position. Linda loves it... a lot.

I have four laminate samples on the way from Wilsonart, they are all dark and [mostly] brownish (like the original laminate). I hope to finish this little project before we head for Colorado later this summer.

This is going to be awesome for your set up. You sir have out done yourself on this one.
I am getting ready to do the pull out counter top addition you did. I order slides today and picked up the spring steel from Home Depot yesterday.
I may enlist your help with the laminated plywood piece.

Good evening, Tin...

Nope, this is going to be another 'one off' project, but thank you so much for your kind compliments.

Awning rail photos

Hey guys as many of you may know I have ordered the street side and rear awning from Zip Dee for my 23D trailer. This is a task ask if any of you guys that have the streets are in curbside awning installed on your trailer. There's a little confusion as the instructions for the streetside awning show the rail mounted with the rivets in the up position, above the C channel and the rail for the rear awning mounted the opposit way with a rivets in the down position below the C channel on the rail. If this is correct I am certainly cool with it, but would someone please take a picture of the street side awning rail and the rear awning rail so that I can confirm one way or the other.

Awning rails

I don't have room in the shed to pull the awnings all the way out but got a couple pics with streetside partially out. Both my rear window and streetside awning rails are installed the same way, with flat part of rail pointing down.

Last picture is the rear awning

Above and beyond

Rich,
Again I want you to know how much I appreciate your over the top detail in the photos you provided. Thank you for taking the time to collect and compile this information. It is going to make my awning install project a breeze.
Thanks again,
Ronnie

Ronnie, no worries. I know when I am working something, if I have the right photo it goes easier.

I did the Dexter lift yesterday. I am liking it. It was doable but hard. I'll post up later this week.

Looking forward to your report! My big worries are getting at all the bolts, and making sure axles stay aligned. Really want to do this since my '14 has 14 inch wheels.

Alignment was no problem. It's a snug fit, flush against the side hanger steel. You add the lift part, it's snug against the same steel hanger. Then you just bolt the axel right to it in a flush line. Hard to explain but intuitive when you are doing it. Not a lot of play in the axel.

I'll try and write some tonight.

I am thinking about a lift kit. Looking forward to you post.
My awnings will ship the 13th. So I hope to pick them up at the freight hub on Friday and install over the weekend
