Awesome pictures, looks like you had a great time!

Are those the dark green graphics on your trailer?

Thanks, did have a great time! Yes, that's the forest green on the graphics.

And here is my first "modification" to the trailer. Got up the nerve to drill a couple of holes. Towel bar from Ikea.

Oops, those photos were not sideways on my computer... I fixed them for you Nindy, Donna D.

Cool towel bar and lovely interior!

(Sometimes the pics just go sideways...who knows why?)

I am loving the fabric I chose. Also love the gaucho bunk. We left it set up the whole trip. During the day, we stored suitcases and extra stuff underneath. At night, that stuff went to the top bunk and the pups in their crates fit underneath. I had a lot of stuff being gone three weeks. Now that I'm home I've rearranged everything in the trailer and have plenty of space freed up for clothes for future trips.

Thank you all!

Slickheadhunter - my dogs are Jack Russell/Blue Heeler mix. Very high energy, but smart and sweet. Had to keep them occupied by visiting a lot of off-leash dog parks and a lot of walks. They would say the trip involved too much crate time. They have to be in crates in the Jeep or they would be all over my lap the whole time!

"They have to be in crates in the Jeep or they would be all over."

I can relate to this! It took some time but I finally managed to train mine to stay out of my lap. One is 70lbs and the other 50lbs, I guess they just don't understand why they can't be there.

I found that I can take the cargo net on my RAV4 and zap-strap it to the head rests to create a barrier between the cargo and passenger area. Arthritic beagle stays where she belongs.
