My buddy Chris came by today and helped me get finished with all of the side sheet metal on this thing. I really appreciated him helping me.
I still have to cut one panel to go over the rear door,and mount another panel on the rear,but that won't take me long to do that. Tomorrow,I'll get the roof panels cut/bent,and also get the corner and window trim cut/bent.
Then I'll go buy the wall insulation panels,and the OSB plywood for the interior walls. I should be able to get this thing finished this week!

I'm still working on it. I have too many things going on,and not enough time to do all of them.
I will try to finish the interior walls tomorrow,and put the roof panels on. I thought I was going to get this done a couple weeks ago,but things came up.

I'm in no hurry to finish this thing,as long as I have it done by November. I hunt out of ground blinds/tree blinds during archery season.
The wild hogs have tore up both of my feeders at the ranch,and I have to weld up some new legs for both of them. I've never had pigs flip over a feeder,and they have done it twice to these two feeders.They are staked down,and also have ratchet tie-downs holding them down. Damn pigs!

the blind is looking good. the camo panels look great.

i still think you need to bring it in September so we can test it out, to make sure it'll work out for you in November!

TxHillbilly. . . .

From where I am sitting, I am starting to worry about the center of gravity. With such a narrow wheel base, I a'feared.

I'm not. I drive 18 wheelers for a living,and in my 30+ years of hauling trailers with a very high center of gravity especially hauling liquids that constantly move inside the tankers,I have never come remotely close to turning one over.

There's nothing to be concerned about,this trailer will pull just fine down the road. You just need to know how to drive safely,and I do!
