    The window is an "egress" window that means you can get out of it which is why I picked it. The door handle/hardware has been a challenge, I have bought 3 different setups so far. First was a regular tubular lockset with a handle versus a doorknob..no good. Second was a screen door setup which would work if it fit a 1"1/2 door. Third is a Teardrop trailer door latch that will work except they sent the wrong one (a RH not a LH) so...stay tuned for the final results...I hope it works.

    I'm interested in how you mounted the boots up there? They stayed there while on the road?

    I have to say this is one of my better ideas.... I put a bungee cord over them and they stay put! They also dry quicker and all the dirt falls out of the inside, works great!

    The devil is in the details...

    Gotta have a headboard but on a folding bed?

    I can't weld aluminum so rivets it is, (I can weld aluminum but don't have a TIG anymore and really rivets work great!)

    Sweet.

    Maybe you can put affix a little tray to headboard, something big enough for some aspirin and a kindle? Probably not needed, the counter is within reach...

    WHEEWWW....big relief.


    Even though I measured 100 times and mocked up with 2 bikes I haven't been able to check to see if 4 bikes would fit, and......they do!

    3 fit with ease but 4 works ok.

    Finally hooked it up and pulled it out of it's winter parking spot!

    Mary Poppins or Sister Mary Margaret, she don't like to get a wet bouffant at the track...(not that she has ever been to the track) but just in case.
