More progress, slowly but surely! I replaced all the Tek screws holding the trailer skin on with capped rivets (was worried about them shaking loose off road). Also, welded in supports for the diesel tank (heater) and for the Harbor Freight Apache box that will house the water heater, got both mounted. I need to get the propane tank mounted and exterior lights figured out then I can finally start building the inside 20181227_152257.jpegf936a7cc-05de-4dd6-ae24-83cfcbdca512_1.179dbc570caa05aca13e7ee1a6011b4e.jpeg

I'm still here! My son is a month away from being born, needless to say I have had a lot of other stuff to do Diesel heater is in, front wall mocked up, started insulation. First project to complete is the roof, then the walls, then the front wall will go in. I also added aluminum strut channel to the outside of the trailer, for roof rack mounting in the future.
