I have received some new images of the construction of the Vistabule trailer..we are getting close. However from looking at the photos I received, there is still a ways to go in the next two weeks. Carol and I are heading out at the end of next week to pick up the trailer in St. Paul., Minnesota at the factory. As you may imagine we are getting excited and making all sorts of last minute plans and purchases. More on that in a later post...once we see what works and what doesn't.
In the photo above you can see that the galley cabinet and the headboard cabinet have been installed on the trailer. I had honestly believed that it would look more like a trailer this close to the delivery date, but have been told not to worry. many different elements are being worked on and at this stage changes will take place fairly rapidly.
In the photo above you can see the layout of the headboard. The large opening in the middle, between the doors, is where the air conditioner goes, with the propane fired furnace beneath the air conditioner and aft of the battery. The hole in the floor just behind that clamp is access to the battery. The large opening above the air conditioner opening is the passthrough to the galley from the main compartment. This opening also provides visability straight through the trailer so you can see behind with the rear view mirror in the car.
Above you can see the electrical harness - this is a job that would make me sweat. . . I always seem to have to call my older brother about things electrical and even then I can mess it up. This does look like a nice neat harness though, reminds me of my Grand Banks trawler. I had some extras added in the electrical area - special accommodations.
The galley area at the rear of the trailer will have a sink, a two burner stove and a 12 volt refrigerator. You can see the passthrough area above the counter which will also have screens and privacy doors but will be kept open for travel.
So this is what I have so far, and am looking forward to more shots as the assembly continues and will be sharing them here with you. Thanks for dropping by.
