Question 2 years ago

How heavy are these? I'm looking at making a small, lightweight camper so my wimpy Rav4 can tow it. I need to build something under 1200 lbs.

These are really beautiful! We are thinking of making something similar, do you have any issues with placement at the site? That was one thing we have been concerned with. I also couldn't read the files, or at least don't know what I'm looking at!

Yes, Point of sale... this year, TRF and FLARF and maybe NYRF next year...

We bought rubber pond liner to glue to the rooftop - it won't leak!

Also, some of the pictures look purple -- it is actually dark cherry/fuchsia, not purple. The lights are LEDs and we'll probably remove them for the drive...

I've been "getting ready" to build a little wagon for years. Actually got one end finished once before evil forces made me "get rid" of it. Thanks for the inspiration....my wagon is back on!!
