A tree falling on the pup or getting stuck in the forest during a tornado is my worst nightmare.
We always watch the weather(radar) and pack up and leave if really nasty cells are forecasted to come our way.
Looks good! I upgraded my axle and also raised it slightly and sometimes find my stabs to be too short. (Fully extended and too wobbly) Thought about adding crank down stabs but just carry off cuts of some 5/4 deck planking for spacers
Never add a rooftop to an ABS roof IMO, and I don’t like the idea of it through the aluminum clad roofs either. A) they are flat roofs unlike TT’s so pooling water cold be an issue, b) the bouncing on the highway could lead to issues.
