mikeg205,

Deja vu!

The trailer for my 205 looks just like yours. As we speak, it's being sandblasted and painted, then home for new bunks and wiring.

And coincidentally, I bought mine in your home state of Illinois 7 years ago

Gave up on GatorBak for now since I thought it would look odd to have an exposed painted 2x4 under a covered one. They donít do 4x4s.

So Iím following everything I found on other carpet threadsódonít cover the bottom wood entirely, electric staple gun, stainless steel staples, etc.

But this has turned out quite interesting with my odd stacked and angled 2x4 bunks for this wrongly-matched trailer. Maybe I should have just done 4x4s!? Combo of odd angled cuts, extra bolt holes, warped pressure treated wood after I thought Iíd been pretty selective...not as easy as it looked, just stapling carpet on bunk boards. But itís coming along, worlds better than what it was, I think. Learning not to try to copy the old boards and bolt holes, just start with them on the trailer.

Finishing front bunks and roller, then getting more lights and wiring while starting on fenders. Have to figure out a way to get the fender bolts with broken heads out.

Happy Thanksgiving to all! Name:  IMG_1939.jpg

Someone before you went to great lengths to modify that trailer.

As you put in the new wiring, make sure you have a clean bare metal surface for the ground wires at each light.

Looks good so far.

Patience.

Ahhh yes I was a fool and forgot to tape off a spot for them. Should have just painted around the old ones.

Bunks are doneówhat a feeling. Hope not to have to experience it again though for awhile!

Now to drill out the rusted-solid bolts with broken heads under the fenders... Name:  IMG_2129.jpg

from the beginning to the end of about 4 months.I did everything in my free time, 2-4 hours 2-3 times a week.. June-September. This is a normal attitude to things. If you want to do well, do it yourself! Thank you for your support!
