Homer gets new shoes... a tent... and the first run out.
Did I mention we bought a new house...
So Homer didn't get all the love he deserved, but I did get it pulled together enough for a nice trip to the North Shore.
New tires... 235/85-16 BFG AT on the factory wheels.
Lid painted camo tan, load bars and tent mounted. Cheap set of lights for now... Didn't get the LED retro-fit Gama Goats put together. Bobby came through in fine fashion. He said I would have the tent for a trip over the Fourth and he was true to his word.
Looks great. Can the lid still be opened with the tent opened? I like the thought of the set up but after just getting back from 4 nights camping Im in & out of the trailer multiple times a day. I keep everyhting inside it in totes & the coolers. As I use stuff & get finished I put it back in the trailer where it belongs.
Yes, the storage area can be accessed while the tent is opened. Like you, I try to keep an organized camp, and if it is in the trailer, I don't have to go looking anywhere else. In fact, it is easier now to get into the trailer with the tent opened up than when it is closed. With the trailer all set in road mode, it take significant effort to start the lid moving upward. More than 50# of effort. I am going to have to rethink the placement of the struts. They are too near horizontal when the lid is closed to give any assistance.
