Wow... got the roof braces in mine.

I had a bunch (~65 linear feet) of 2x2 square aluminum tubing, 1/8 thick. Light and strong. Used it and it works GREAT. I was short 7 feet, so went to get some more.

'Bout had a heart attack buying the last 7 foot piece...

$10 per linear foot. $70 for the piece. And thats a 'cash-no slip' price. :shock:

Glad I already have a bunch of wire stashed away. :? Have not seen prices on that lately...... Glad I am a pack rat sometimes.

Really brightens it up!

Had you tried 'painting' the wheel skirt the same color as the fender?

MS Paint almost matched the color.. :lol:

the skirts are stainless steel and i kinda like them shiny ... but you never know ... and it's just paint!

we are thinking of having my wife paint a mandala on the back of the camper ...

and BTW we reserved a spot for roots revival so no primitive camping for the first time! (although we do plan to visit our special primitive site we have camped in everytime)!

Ah....shiny stuff... gotta keep it. Couldnt tell from the pic, looked dark grey.

A mandala would be cool on the back!

i've been painting (in between all the dang thunderstorms) got the main color and the orange trim done ... i'm painting the door purple today ... then i have to touch up all the trim and put the stainless steel fender skirts back on.

then it's on to the inside!

That actually does look pretty good.

Bob: Did you see the woman who did something similar? She was camped near us last Fall... with her "Shabin". Not a "She-Shed"... it was her "She-Cabin" - shortened to: Shabin.

Oh, and: I vote for the Mandala, too. :D More unique = more bettah.

Oh man... that does look good.


Cool look with the wheel showing. baby moon hubcaps would set it off nice. :D

I bet the stainless skirts will look cool on there too. Mo' sparkle.

I better get to work on mine. got the ceiling braces in and cured. Got a little ways to go on the door... :?
