Re: RC: Steel Featherlites


I ordered an 18' g/n stock with a 4' dressing room (6' wide because I
remember a lot of twisty mountain roads to trailheads).  The dressing room
opens on the driver's side.  On curbside, there is an exit door w/ a 4'
wide, 5' tall ramp so I can haul horses in the front and hay or whatever in
the rear compartment.  There is a full door and 5' tall ramp at the rear.
It won't be ready until 11/15 so with my luck I will be "boarding" it at the
dealer until we get a thaw so I can get it over the 7% grade into my valley.
Anyway, I took a lot of advice from other Ridecampers--for example, I'm
getting a 24" door between the dressing room and the front horse area so I
can use that space while we're camping.  I'm also planning to look into
getting the interior "rhino" lined and getting the dressing room insulated
at a body shop.  That's the dream.  The reality---to be continued.
