    Welcome from Wylie, Texas! Sweet remodel! I envy the creative campers being manufactured in Australia. Lots of useful, seemingly well built, models around down there, too bad it costs an arm and a leg to ship CONUS.

    Re: Hello from Australia

    First car I ever drove was a '66 Impala...

    Did you say there was a camper in there?

    How many times do we have to tell y'all you're building your trailers with the door on the wrong side :)

    Also I don't see any marker lights. Do you still have to reinstall them?
