Finished at Last

The trailer is finally finished. I added a Victorian style lock and the hanging lights. Also finished wiring up the trailer lights. Here is a tip for wiring the lights on Harbor Freight trailers. Because the trailer is bolted together an each piece is painted, there is no way to guarantee a good ground for the lights. I ran a separate ground wire for the lights and everything works correctly now. The next posts will be in a new blog all about our travels in the new caravan, Woo hoo ;)

Thanks for the complement. It took me over a year to build as I was not in a hurry. Think about changing Tim's plans to make the benches wider and higher so they can serve a a proper seat and bunk. My caravan can sleep 6 comefortably. Good luck and look forward to seeing your progress.
