    Stained and sealed all of the "Genuine Imitation Woodgrain Paneling" on a cold and damp day. So why not accelerate the drying time with an ancient Coleman time bomb! LMAO! On a lighter note...it's super toasty in here! 20180328_173704-1.jpg

    So happy to see another back entrance pup. We recently purchased a neglected 1974 Jayco Flipper with back opening. Currently in the midst of an interior rehab and bought new canvas. Somewhere in its past, the bed wings had been replaced and we’ve been trying to figure out what they were originally.

    How do your bed wings close up? Are they on hinges or slides like the newer ones?

    They just fold up. Like the Cox ad says...it's one, two, three, easy.

    Nice work.... Being a OFF-ROAD guy I would want to replace those small wheels right off the bat haha...

    My 4200 lb trailer has 15-inch OFF_ROAD wheels under it... I can get some serious mud on my tires...

    Have a Texas Coors LONG NECK on me...

    As we former Texans would say... "YOU BET" !!!

    I really love my 12-foot box OFF-ROAD CAMPER along with it 4X5 foot front deck but here of late I am starting to like the smaller size two wheel off-road TERRA TYPE Trailers. Everything is is done outside where possible and one sleeps in a TENT SETUP above the small trailer...

    Wood looks something like this

    The rear outside kitchen access looks like this...

    Then i would pull this with off-road JEEP setup sometimes...

    Or my 4WD Truck if I needed more camping supplies...

    Well... I was going to wait until it is finished but here it is in the rough and the ONLY photo I could find on the net of it with canvas. Bear Creek canvas did a great job of retrofit

    had one of these, I flattened the top, we would take it out in the boat and sit the coffee pot on the flat top and have good, hot and fresh coffee and even cooked sausage for sandwiches.
