Welding on frame done. Foam on outboard side is in, and what's left is to weld bottom original frame on and to attach outside paneling. Caulk too.
I've only got one day off before we go camping next weekend, and the outside will be waterproof. Since bear creek won't have our new tent for 8 weeks, even after they have the original (we'll at least look done on outside. )

View from inside. Will insert foam in rectangular sections, bringing total thickness to 2" , same as big aluminum sections. Lay the fiberglass panel over it and be done.


Sometime before the 2 or 3 months before I get my new tent, I'll open the door and be able to work just like it was on my work bench

Bear creek quoted $375, and 8 wks. I also have to send my old one in as a template.

Yes, aluminum is all we use that machine for. It got pretty hot after welding the rug cutting alum circles on 50 awning poles. But that was about 30 minutes of constant welding with only about 5-10 sec interruptions between poles.

Installed my new tent that was reverse engineered by Bear Creek Canvas.
To say I'm happy with the quality of their work would be an understatement. They made a BEAUTIFUL replacement, and it actually improved on the original because they modified it by adding the rubber beading to both sides in addition to the original a cross the top. This beading slides into aluminum channel, and by adding this to the sides, improved the factory style by eliminating the need to cut and glue the tent to the trailer pics to follow
