Also, there are many stair options out there; I have looked at a couple for our Roo as the bottom stair is just a bit much for my knees. I have noticed that the design of RV stairs is such that our Pomeranian cannot seem to judge it right; he used to just bound up to the inside but at age 12 just sits there and waits for me to lift him ~ cataracts, etc.

Enjoy your trip, will look forward to seeing the final product
Thank you...but I'm going with the "crazy"! It's been much more work than I expected...but is coming along nicely. Yes I need to come up with a better solution for an awning. I'm having trouble with the idea that just under 1/10th of the money put into the trailer would be for an awning (not including labor!) My yellow lab will need to be lifted in as she could never make it up the steps, especially after I had the axels moved to below the leaf springs. Heck at 50 I'm noticing what that extra 4" lift is like. Thanks for the well wishes. Hopefully this fall and winter I'll finish up and post final thoughts and suggestions for anyone considering this route.

Take it easy,
