I’ve made some progress on the bedding; rather than tackle the upholstery myself (I even bought an antique Singer 301 for the job). I opted to sub it out and I’m glad I did!
I sourced some vintage fabric from Kimberly Z on Esty and ordered the foam pads and bolsters from Foam-n-More online and had Peter the upholster put it all together. I’m pretty sure my own attempt would have been less than satisfactory and surely no where near the level of craftsmanship I got from Peter.
I also took the trailer down off the jack stands for the first time and took her on her maiden voyage around the neighborhood, hooked up to our newly-acquired tow rig; a 1986 Chevy Suburban Silverado:
The combo handled great and we are heading down to Leo Carillo State Park next week for our first campout, even though we have a bit more to finish… Bon voyage!
