Here is a flyer that I got from Gary who owns a Metz. It has some great info on it. This is not for mine. I have the 15m. Mine is equipped with everything except for the gas light and canvas bunk. I plan on installing a gas light at some point over the dinette. I also plan on installing more 12v lights. I also need to get a new water tank. I have both the city water and hand pump on the sink.

I spent my last full day mainly cleaning up and drying things out. I did manage to take a 3 hour hike up Bromley where I was treated to great views of Equinox, Stratton and a 360 view of the green mountains. A storm came along and started to rain when I got to the bottom. That night a violent storm lit the black sky. I decided to head to my friends restaurant...and have a good meal.
It started out a dry walk. Down the West River from my campground is Ball Mt. Lake and Dam. The West River Trail passes over the dam. There a nine switchbacks on the one side. Hamilton Falls is the tallest water falls in VT. It was just beautiful...even though a thunderstorm erupted when I got there...and I was 2 miles from my car.
Despite it seeming like a rainforest, I had a great time. I was so happy to be in a tin can...unlike my soggy wet nylon neighbors. It wasn't all rain...here is a pic of the set up with the new awning. I need to install a third pole. I got a hanging tent for inside my canopy and it worked great. I used it as a dry space...and outdoor screen room.

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.

I got an antenna that is really a reproduction for an airstream. Well..the dorf must have thicker walls than and airstream. I think they are about 1.5 inches thick. So. I need to adapt the antenna to attach it to the trailer. I really like the antenna and think it will be a nice addition to the exterior. The stereo I have is great. I can put two more speaker on it. I want to get out door speakers I think.
