I have only camped out once with this tent. I tried a dry run yesterday at trying to assemble it by-my-self. Without instructions and a helper it was useless. I downloaded the instructions last night, and thought if I had a pole to hold the center up while I clipped the fiberglass rods in it may work. So today I tried it again. an 8' piece of conduit padded on the ends worked a treat. I also took the time on this nice day to adjust both lift springs on the tight side. This helps Hulk II to support both the deck and blade. BOH will have the carrier loaded up. The lift assist spring takes some of the pressure off the lift lever. Next weekend I'll do a test fit on the trailer. I know both Craftsman's will fit, not sure I can get the JD on there too. Taking a break now, I'll be breaking this camp shortly

That is what my wife said. May have to see how the logistics work out. I know they have off loading areas. I would need to drop the two Craftsman's, then drive to the unloading dock. Drop the trailer, unload the JD, hook the trailer back up. load the JD on the trailer, drive back to where I dropped the Craftsman's. Plan B is to take the JD and Roper (and maybe the Penncraft) next year.

I found that on my dad's ranger we have to leave the tailgate down but if it strapped good it not going where.

Can't leave the tailgate down when towing a trailer. Bad things happen.

Yep, been there. Hence the bead breaker. We had a good day yesterday. Go-carts, Train rides, and Put-Put. Then another test run with the Tent. This time with a camp fire. Hotdogs and Smores. Tested my power contraption for watching movies. Last night I watch the NASCAR Truck race on the internet. He was wore out.....me too.
