We spent our winter getting a facelift on our toybox. Wife drew the design and picked the color scheme. Next the tractor !

Jack, these are all I have now (from Mar. 2014) Have upgraded from the 47'' TV to a 70'' (our sitting area is about 25ft away), and getting most of the final trim work done.

Sorry so late in replies to questions (Track keeps me busy)

 

Jack, we've had this trailer since summer 08. We are definitely going to build another trailer we are just trying to decide to go either UP or OUT or BOTH. I would love to hear your ideas. If you would like I will PM you my #.

 

Ronbo, those door covers you speak of were actually foldout patios 21'x8' and 17'x8'. They were very heavy and required a winch system to use making them not as user friendly as we liked ,so, we have designed a lightweight multi-panel system that will be able to be lowered and raised manually a section at a time without major effort.

 

The Few, There are several different ways to negotiate a paint job, The painter I used is very fair priced. I personally negotiated a deal where he quoted me all labor and I agreed to pay for materials directly. There are several levels of pricing in materials (single stage, metallic single stage, cheap paint, high end ,on and on and on) I personally opted to spend more on the materials to ensure good color and long life. I used base coat/clear Dupont minimum of 3 or more coats of each color and the clear. I also went with the best UV protectant clear coat for long color life. All that said, I still haven't added it all up but figure I'm probably only in the $12ish to $14,000. range all inclusive. when totally completed we will price this trailer around $97,500.

 

Anne and I would like to thank everyone for their positive comments.
