I need to finish the floor tomorrow.
Run electrical and install the bed on Tuesday.
Test it on Wednesday!

I ran all the electrical today, after all.

My heavy duty 50' extension cord is coiled up in the lower cabinet.
It passes through the cabinet wall behind the refer and the GFCI protected junction box is fastened to the wall.
The plug end passes through the cabinet bottom and out the bottom of the trailer floor when I want to connect to a power pole or generator.

I have an 1850watt generator on loan with a possible option to buy from my wife's family. :)

It runs the refer, a fan, lights and even the microwave without issue...

I installed tie downs to secure the refer and also folding tables and an EZ-Up against the wall over near the door.

We want to camp this week!

Trekkor the trailer is really lookin' good. I had a enclosed trailer for several years so what I am about to say comes from first hand experience. Make sure you tie everything down. Trailers typically do not have shocks so they bounce a lot. Anything and everything you put on the shelves will end up on the floor. I guarantee it. Trust me I learned the hard way.

Installed the overhead light, folding bed structure, tailgate extension and painted out the floor after belt sanding it.

Good stuff.

I'll fold down the bed and get a picture.

It's 6.5'x5'.

Here's some shots.

I still want to paint the underside of the ramp extension and the bed support pedestals gray like the floor.
All the appliances stow in the cabinets during transport.
