Hey Greg, thanks for checking in on the loafer over here.
The trailer has been hooked up to the jeep for almost a year without being disconnected once. It has seen the Gulf of Mexico to Panhandle and even some of west Texas. Time has been spent trying to figure out a solid direction to the build. That's why a lot of time has been spent over on ExPo.
My wife has serious reservations with the idea of sleeping in a RTT. Even the thought of a overnight at a buddy's lake lot gets big thumbs down from her. She just can't get past the tent idea. Personally,I feel she does not feel secure enough.
So...I introduced her to the world of teardrop trailers. Figured a door with a lock would be just the ticket.
She fell in love.
So here we are.....
I'm not going to spend the coin on something my wife will not accompany me in and I surely will not be selling my shiney toy!
This is where I felt like Tom Hanks in the movie cast away as he was standing in that 4 way. Thinking to myself, which direction?
As of today:
I'm going to button up some small details with the M416 for now and call it good. For sure it will get better interior bed lighting,figure a way to make the stock lights more visible (brighter),house battery w/charger and switch's. Still need a way to haul extra fuel for the jeep too. And.....
More will happen with the M416 once my son gets a little older. That's when the RTT idea will be revisited.
A few more projects around the house need to be finished. The girls add-on rooms are near finished. The chicken coop check list only has a few more things to cross off. Then it will be time to start the build on a teardrop. This way it's a win no matter the road I choose to take...or the trailer.
