I like your fabricated crossmember. With a welder you can make anything. Most of my crossmembers were so rusted I couldn't use them for patterns. You doing shell on or off...it looks like you've got your belly off and working from the bottom.

Camping in Michigan over Christmas????? You know the point of the wheels is so you can take them with you Florida during the winter.

This might be a silly question but what tool did you use to cut out the rear member? Also were you planning on replacing any of the rotted 2x4s?
