I started out writing my last post to give you a "brief" update on my trailer and the darned thing turned in to a short story. I want to wrap up this thread with a few more pictures and some more history before moving on to something more interesting. SR300 has given me an idea for a few new posts.
Going back across town today and try to finish up my repair job. Ordered new tires for the trailer last week and they hit town yesterday. The old tires were not bad, but I felt that, since I was starting out fresh, I would put new tread on her so that eliminates one potential road problem. I am working on the power converter as well today and hope to finish up these chores by tomorrow so I can take it to the storage yard. The shop where it is sitting is my brother's new trophy. It is a small workshop/yard in an old residential neighborhood near his house. He just bought this place last month and has been doing some of the same upgrades as I have been doing with my trailer. New paint, replaced lights, painted floor, air compressor, etc. My brother has several older cars and trailers he has collected over the years and has had them stored in various places around town. This new shop gives him one spot for all his toys and a place to work on the old cars (instead of his garage).

Unfortunately, I won't be able to road test our new trailer for a couple of weeks. I am off to Phoenix next week for another supplier trip and heading north to Minnesota the week after. Lots of things to do between now and the wedding in August. First road trip will probably be to one of our football games.
And speaking of wedding plans, those are starting to come together. Flowers have been orders, invitations sent, DJ booked, reserved a restaurant for the rehearsal dinner, booked a room for the happy couple, kids are registered. Only 6 weeks to go...
