First trip of the 2011 season

Well, it was a long wet winter here, and it is still a wet and cool spring. We checked and double checked the weekend weather reports and went out for the weekend to a Provincial Campground we've never been to before (Nairn Falls) just north of Whistler. Sure glad we did it, couldn't have gone better.
Funny how I work in the Roo getting it ready, but when I finally open it up fully, it alway surprises me just how much room there is. I love the hybrid trailers.
The new heater mod worked out better than I hoped, the front bed now has heat directed right into the area. The whole trailer just seems to warm up faster now, and a lot less condensation too, even when it was raining and four of us, plus dogs, were inside having dinner.

You obviously live somewhere scenic.
I on the other hand do not, and must live vicariously through others; so, to semi-quote Tom Cruise, "Show me the pics!!!!"

Hi, sorry it took so long. Here are a couple of pics from that weekend. First is looking up the valley from the campsite, second is of the "rig". Sorry, no good pictures of the falls. The last two are of the front bunk heat mod. First is the heat outlet mounted on an 8" high pedestal so it will clear the matress and the back of the seat. Second is the new cover I made to go over the duct and the water lines between the seats. I cut slots in it to let the heat radiating off the duct out. The lines and wiring were insulated from the duct. Let me tell you, there were NO complaints of cold from the front, and more importantly, condensation....none. I do have to add this though. I don't think the propane furnace would have enough heat output to make this work well, especially since it cycles off and on, and is quite noisy when it runs. I use an Espar D4 Airtronic heater in my trailer instead which regulates it's speed and heat output and is very quiet.
