Pics, built but still raw

Okay, here’s the camper as of last week. It’s pretty much built but still unpainted, still uncaulked, still un-weatherproofed.

In the bottom picture you can see my 13 year old border collie, Keegan, sitting in the driver’s seat, ready to go.

    Just a suggestion and I don’t know if you can BUT I would put the hinges on the inside of your door and have it open in. Someone with a screw driver can get right in the way it is. Of course they can get in with a crow bar but why make it easy, 🙂

    PS I think you did a really good job. Looks snug.

  3. Hinges on the inside was the original plan but no one at the hardware store knew how to do it or where to get the supplies. I think I could have done it with regular hinges if i’d had the correct tools and time.
    When you’ve got a week, you do what you can. : )

  4. At a home center, you can get two padlock hasps (you won’t need locks; just the hasps) and put them on each side of the door — both the opening side and the hinge side. Drop a big spike through each one at night, and anyone trying to get in will take enough time and make enough noise that you can conveniently bop them over the head when/if they finally get through.

    In the morning, pull the spikes and greet the sunward dawn!

    Great idea Jack! I don’t understand the hinge part tho. Why can’t you just put them on the other side and have the door go in instead of out?
