What do you do while you wait a year?

What do most of you do while you wait a year for your trailer to be built?

Work on the build sheet. It seems endless at times.
Decide on a tow vehicle. Watch lots of Youtube videos reviewing tow vehicles.
Buy stuff for the trailer and store it in boxes in the basement.
Visit this forum almost every day to find answers and guidance on what to include in the build sheet, which tow vehicle to buy and what stuff to buy for the trailer.

You could buy a used trailer, to use temporarily. It will probably make you appreciate your new one even more when you get it.

These trailers are so popular, I can't find a used one to buy!

If you want custom upholstery and/or Formica, don't delay! Those two things took me longer to find and make a decision than everything else.

Get your tow vehicle lined up or purchased.....do some modifications to it to make it better for towing.

Do the build sheet, redo the build sheet and then change it again.
