    More progress today. Front welded into place. Cut the main deck and got that tacked into place. Wasn't the greatest of cuts but not bad with my grinder.

    Long day of welding ahead for tomorrow and now to build the main box. Feel like a major hurdle was overcome finally.

    Just got back from camping last night and excited to work on the trailer again. Did a lot of thinking of how to improve my kitchen layout when it pulls out and overall general use especially with a wife and kid. The best part was my wife actually enjoyed camping and wants to keep going and the kid had a blast.

    Prior to leaving I installed the mopar 7 pin trailer harness because we borrowed a small camper from my aunt. got the harness from the dealer for 120. Took about an hour to install it. No computer flash needed.

    Hoping to post some progress pics this weekend.

    So more rain delays, trip to Sesame Place and a walking pneumonia diagnosis, but got in two days of work and finally finished securing the deck down to the frame, got the tubes cut for the box and started welding down the box bottom. Weather forecast looks good for a few days so I am hoping I can get a lot more done.

    Very robust! Made to bounce off of things. I like where you're going with this.

    Assuming you have serious medical background based on user name, so you probably know this, weld fumes and grinding dust can knock some people on their rears( I'm one of them) a good respirator with clean filters really helps. IIRC it's cadmium and chromium from the welding.

    Build looks great, keep it up
