Today I picked the camper up with the lift truck and took it out side to put it on the trailer.

Posted Image


The camper is set down on blocks of wood so I can pull the forks out from under it.

Posted Image


Using a pry bar, I lift it up and remove the the blocks of wood.

Posted Image


With it sitting down on the bed, I start to pull it around with a come-along to face forward on the trailer.

Getting it turned around.

Posted Image


Almost there.

The camper is in place and bolted down to the trailer.
This gives us a nice place to spend a couple of nights at the shows so we don't have to drive back home each night or get a motel room.
The trailer bed still has 15-1/2 foot of deck space for loading ( plus the space on the beaver tail ).

Looks great on there, Ray! Have to try it out some night just to make sure everything will be okay once your are away from home. That was a great idea and thanks for all the detailed info and pics. On to the next project!
