Good News!Good News! Update 7/24/10(More Pics)
#1
While I was doing my weekly shopping in Wally World today, Steve decided to stop by Zahm's and see if there was any news on my new trailer (For late comers--see "Delays,Delays" and "Trailer Shopping" to catch up on this story [Smile]). I was afraid that Bill Zahm might get upset since he's told us they would let us know when they hear anything. I'm sure glad Steve did now. Are you ready for this?

It will be delivered on Monday!!!!!!
7/12/2010.

This will give me plenty of time to carpet the camping area (the walk-in tack room) and get everything switched from the old WW to my new Corn Pro. I'll get pics up as soon as I can. Looks like I'll be going to the July DE Ride in style [Tongue][Wink]!!!

Looking forward to the pictures.

Good deal, RH!

Are you putting carpet down in the dressing/camping room?

Yep, that's the plan. I've carpeted the dressing/tack room of my last two trailers. Sure is nice standing on carpet than a bare wood floor. I already checked around and it'll run around $45 to $50. I thought about buying a 6 X 8 foot rug, but it runs just about the same price and won't cover the entire floor.

One little correction to my original announcement. Steve explained that it will be ready to pick up on Monday. It still might be Tuesday or Wednesday before I'll be able to bring it home. It just depends on how soon Zahm's can go pick it up [Smile]. But they do know I want it in time for the DE Ride and when I'll be leaving for that ride [Wink].

Zahm's called early this morning. My trailer is in. They were hoping we could pick it up today, but Steve had to go into town for a disability physical and switch funds so we can pay for the trailer. He's still not back yet, and I have no idea how long something like this might take. I made an appointment to pick the trailer up tomorrow morning when things won't be quite so hectic around here.

I did go and check it out. It's larger than I pictured in my mind but exactly how I wanted it. On the plus side; the extra large tack room's floor is covered with a firm rubber matting, which means I may not have to carpet it after all. The entire floor under the matting is wood for the length of the trailer. Now I'm thinking maybe a throw rug to stand on when getting out of bed to dress. Nothing definite yet. Just throwing some ideas around.

The trailer looks very plain on the outside since there's no pin-striping or any kind of art work, but that's okay. It's function I was most concerned about rather than looks. I could've had a flashier paint job, but decided to save a little money by not having it done.

I'll be getting a new ball for the hitch. This trailer takes the next size up from the conventional 2" ball I've had for all my other trailers, though the hitch is exactly the same type as my old WW.

And don't worry. I'll be taking plenty of pics tomorrow. It'll depend on time whether I'll get them posted then too. It might not be until Wednesday. So please try and be patient.

I'm really going to like this trailer [^][^][^]!
