December Trailer Build

The long awaited RV Entry Door delivery


It is now 5:33pm on 12/23 and the door just left KEASBEY, NJ .   That is about 90 miles away so I take it that I am not getting the door today.   In fact because this is a holiday weekend and FedEx ground is closed tomorrow I will not get the door until next Tuesday %$#@!*&^#$@!.

Graphic Sample.jpg (140672 bytes) Here I am trying to get an idea of different graphics that can be applied to the trailer.  This is a PhotoShop rendering of what a commercial pinstripe decal would look like applied to the trailer side.

12/28/05-  FedEx finally shows up with the door.  Came home from work to find this at my door (yes a door at my door)
