No problem coming your way to get this installed. Saves you the purchase of a travelling workshop! Which could be reflected in the installation costs

Shop rates are not cheap here in Calgary, you know.

Jim, I would be happy to leave the Skylark at your place for a few days to have you do some mods for me. I bet we could find a hotel or a condo in Banff or Canmoor and spend a few days doing fun things while you are working.

That sounds way more suitable than the portable shop idea.

With this one you really honour your signature
Maybe Jim is willing to rent out his fifth wheel for a few days

Jim would have to rent out his truck to pull the 5th wheel. Probably won't fit the Highlander :-)

That said, if Jim is going to retire in the next few days we could hit him up for lots of stuff that I could probably do myself or with a bit of effort, but certainly not as well as Jim:
  • Build a nice drawer for under the bed
    [*Put a new countertop on so that we could have the marine stove like Robert. (see the thread isn't totally off topic).
  • Add an indoor electric switch for my dual powered hot water heater.
  • make the table so that it folds in half like this one.
    {*}put in a custom floor?
  • * add a 4-way dicor slide to the table

I am sure we could find other ways to keep him busy, especially after we see the stuff he does to the 5.0 TA...

I'm still waiting for pictures of the retrofit he did of his daughter's trailer...

Don't recall the width (either 11" or 12") or the depth (21" or 22"). Kind of a pain to install the rails in such a tight space but we like them.

But not the truck .

Nice list, but nowhere near as long Ste list for my 5.0.
