Added a deck on workcation

Moved a 10'x25' deck to the our campsite. Took me several beers / hours to decide how to go about this task.
Better part of the Tuesday breaking the deck into 3 sections.

Wednesday 5 of us pickup the sections (3 trips) and set them on a utility trailer and moved to our site. Backing the UT on to our site with the decks was a task.

Thursday reassembled the deck and changed out all the boards that I broke (4)

Looking back on this the hardest part was thinking and breaking the deck apart.

Got to enjoy it for 1 weekend and closed the site for the season.

Sorry forgot to take pics of the process. I was too busy cussing and working my butt off.
Thanks to a lot of great camper neighbors, any time one of us has a project we all jump in with our tool bags.

A very nice looking deck, most I see are old and falling apart in another word junk.

Nice set up. Wife and I have a Surveyor 2015 293 RLTS, we don't see many surveyor owners out there so I'm glad to hear others are as satisfied with them as we are. This is our second FR product and have been amazed at the service they provide as well as our Dealer, Burdette Camper Center.

Decks imply permanence. I love your deck, given the name on the side of your TT: "Touring Edition"

Are you out at high tide in Leland? That fence behind your trailer looks familiar?
