Pushing that smoker up the ramp must be fun !
I guess you will be looking into a winch.

I'll be picking up my Wolf Pack 25pack12 at the end of this week to use as our new BBQ rig too!! We also do KCBS, but up here in the Western NY area. Our battle box cooker weighs about 350 lbs, I look forward to not having to lift it on and off my landscape trailer this season. And the thought of using my own crapper instead of the porta pottys at the comps has me real excited. lol

Yep! I bought that smoker at a contest and had no plans to buy it at the time. Took 4 of us with a running start to get it in the old toyhauler.

Picked up a winch the next day.

I'm out side right now trying to figure out how to run 8ga wire from the battery to the garage in the 29HFS to power the winch.

You will love it. We went from sleeping in chairs and the back of the truck to a small toyhauler. BIG difference.

What is your team name? We are "Uncle Bud's BBQ".

Finished hanging the TV. It's a 32" Vizio that we used in the old camper. It was on a stand so I picked up a mount from Walmart. SANUS VuePoint F107d $50. Had to go to Home Depot and get 1 1/2" lag screws because the ones that come with the mount are too long.

The TV will sit 4" offset from the mount when pushed back to the wall which worked out great to expose the 110v outlet on the left.



Here is the back.


Here is a view sitting at the dinette closest to the bed.

I saw the pop up on some of your Facebook photos. Big improvement!

Good luck at the comp.

We are competing this weekend in GA but saw one over in MS the following weekend 6 hrs away. I asked the wife if she wanted to compete back to back and she said 'yes' so we are breaking in the 29HFS fast!!!!

Awesome, good luck to you in your comps!

My wife hasn't been part of our BBQ team, she shows up to hang out, but not interested in the whole cooking process. It will be interesting this year because she'll be stuck with us at a couple comps as her, myself and our daughter will be doing some camping right after the comps. I'm hoping some of the competitive nature will rub off on her and get her more interested. We always suck at the ancillary dessert categories. We need a woman's touch!!! lol
