A few more projects


Well, I finished the awning. I will take photos next week when she is all set up at her site in VT. I spent the weekend getting her ready for a 9-night adventure in VT. Now that I have used the dorf a few times, I am realizing what works and what doesn't. I don't need a hanging closet, that's for sure. So I just put up two shelves in the closet. I will probably modify them or add more. I just wanted a start to better organize the space. I also got a hanging tent for inside my dining canopy. I wanted wind walls for rainy days. Well the full tent that hangs inside the canopy cost the same. I will take photos of it next week. I had never seen such a tent. I would like more screen area, but I think it will be good.

Thanks for the blog! I am the new owner of a '59 Metzendorf "Miss Pearl". She was up for sale in Oregon last month. A couple questions for ya... where do you store your batteries in your trailer? What are your thoughts about the polishability of the exterior. My whole exterior is silver and a bit oxidized but still has a shine. I am just not sure I am up to the whole task myself. Thanks!

Congrats! My battery is located in the front compartment under the dinette seat next to the door. I think I would have rather it been stored in the rear. I use a solar panel to recharge the battery, but have yet to install a way to have it plug into the outside. I just have the cord go out the door and put the panel on top of the trailer.

You surely can shine her up. Vintage Trailer Supply, (www.vintagetrailersupply.com) has polishing items and info on how to polish aluminum. They are pretty when they shine! Good luck
