Thanks.

Just simple and functional.

I still need some artwork on the walls.
Pictures of my cars and my track pal's cars on track.

It looks pretty cool (wouldn't mind having that myself)!

Question (and I think this was brought up earlier):
When you have the car in the trailer what about side to side balance? You have the fridge and bed on one side of the center line and I assume that your microwave, fan, tv, etc will go in the cabinets which is more center line than side-to-side. Is this a concern or is there not enough weight to worry about? Or will the weight of tires and such on the other side offset the other weight? I've had to redistribute weight in trailers before (front-back and side-side) and now look for such things.

The bed is just a little more than one sheet of plywood and the refer is about 100#'s, if that.
Shouldn't be an issue.

The sound box knocked off 10dBA from 40 feet. ( from 60 to 50 dBA )

The little generator ran the refer and lights, fan and CD player, no problem.

It labored with the mircrowave, hot plate or griddle.
I have my eye on a 3500 watt unit for $400.

My brother in law just bought one yesterday.
I look forward to hearing it run with my sound meter nearby.

I installed a brake controller today.

Pretty cool.
The F-350 has fantastic brakes, but this will make a real difference.
Especially when going to Reno.

much safer in the mountains and in panic stop situations.... :o
California law requires brakes on a trailer that is over 2K#s I believe or maybe it is 3k#s....regardless your setup is way over either of those ;)

what controller did you get?
