Getting ready for Camping Season

I am doing the towing break in and testing how the TH pulls my little camping trailer.

I built this trailer 2 years ago. It is just big enough to sleep in with a galley in the back.

Here is a link to all of my build pictures.

The trailer is only 12ft long total. The body is 9.5' long by 5' wide.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.

So far I have done 315 miles of the 500 mile towing break-in. It will take me 2 more trips to finish the break in.

My first camping trip is the Weekend of March 15th To Caprock Canyon State Park in West Texas. I need to finish the break in before then.

I also just received my new brake controller and need to mount it.

It is a 5" thick foam mattress. I then use blankets and such to adjust to the outside temps. It does have AC if the temps get too hot and I have shore power. Otherwise I just use the vent fan to circulate air.
