    I used a PVC laundry frame cut with my dremel to fit the storage bin, also cut with the dremel. 12 gauge wire to shape the top of the bed slides. Muslin for the canvas, mesh for the door, and 3 rolls of duct tape. The screens I cut from the laundry bags, glue and duct tape. Tow is PVC, propane tank a cut down water bottle and wheels from old toy. Took 6 hours. When it was all done he asked if there was any fabric left because he said he needed an awning.

    He did win first place at the Halloween camping event, which was soooooo much fun. I made it so I could pull off the whole canvas part, but he wouldn't let me if anyone was near us. And his last idea is that his candy holder be inside the pup, so he has it on the bed. Suspenders hold up the box although he did hold it at the handles when walking.

    He is my camping boy, he loves walking around the campgrounds looking at all the rigs and what tows them. He loves the dualies, and he would love a fifth wheel, but mom isn't ever selling her jeep, and a pup is enough to tow, let alone backup.
