I love it! I think that moving out of the "whole awning= stripes" is a great idea. I've been trying to talk my sister( 2vets) into something "out of the box", even knowing I'll be making it for her (equals less time for my Reno"), her husband is dragging his feet LOL. Nice work!

What are the EYES for?

We have two metal eyes (circular eyelets) on either side of the trailer where the awning rail is. What are those for? I am guessing so you can tie something down or on the trailer. Are they to help tie down the awnings?

Can you post a picture! I'm guessing that they are more like guides that help the awning rope advance in the track....

Pfaff 130

Sandy, my awning has a zippered bag attached to the bolt rope. The awning fits into the bag when rolled up, zips closed, and is ready to go down the road. I think without it, you'd only have to get through 2 layers of fabric and the bolt rope attach. I think a lighter weight machine could do it. Leather needle would help since it cuts as it goes through.

I had no idea that the machine you are talking about was that old. Kind of reminds me of my featherweight. I used my Bernina to sew this all up even through the plastic flanged awning rope and it had no problem. I used a heavy needle and it worked well but I took it slow and steady.

I've always assumed that they were to clip the awning bag to the trailer to prevent movement while going down the road and/or to take some of the strain off the cloth in the wind by having some eyes on the fabric which could be tied/clipped to the rings on the trailer

I am sure they have been on there a long time and they look vintage to me. I am guessing it has something to do with the awning but not sure just how they would work. Maybe someone has an idea.

I threw in a picture of the curtained cabinet that we finished on Easy. The possibility of a door on that small of a cabinet that opened into your legs was not appealing so we went with simple. Got to remember not to put my fine china in there though .

Few more items from Easy

We still have a list of things to do to Easy before her maiden voyage out in a few weeks. D Day for us is just 4 days away and we will need every minute of it to get more done on the Safari. After the Safari is gone, we will tackle the rest of the Pacer and get it DONE!!

The first picture is looking out of the Pacer and you can see what good rain does in ND. The next picture is the crooked handle brace that is on the backside of the door. Very crooked and DH says that is what gives it character. I say someone got too much of something while they were installing it and one side is an inch lower than the other side.

Picture of quilt using scrap upholstery fabric and quilting fabric to make a small quilt for Easy along with a pillow using a very bright color for contrast. I keep making different pillows to figure out what I want and so now I might have to open up my own pillow boutique.

Fourth one shows the eyelet on the rear of the Pacer and the fifth one is half of the line up of Airstreams we have on our lot. Plus an old pickup my husband can't bear to part with.

Not the same loops I have on mine. Mine are immediately over each end in the awning track, and are a D ring attached on the forward and rear bulkheads.

Shelves look good though.

Thanks for the response and the compliment. DH does nice work. This one is almost done.

This little trailer has so many odd little items attached to it that it just doesn't quit. Finished a couple of items for the exterior of Easy today. Pictures to follow.
