I refined your idea a bit and designed the hinge and figured out mount spacing. Pretty happy with it. Then I thought about interior space it takes up in a valuable position especially when slid back to clear the side entry door. In the way of ramps or lifts or whatever else.

Went back to my under-frame storage idea and I think it is seeming pretty solid and pretty easy to set up. It fails my initial test of one step setup with folding down the legs but I think it’s easier than a 90* fold up. After sketching for an hour I think I should cancel a few pieces of the amazon order I just placed.

should have worked harder on design and tried to get steel today. see what I can get done without fresh materials, I guess. I think I'm going to be short on a few other items that are still on the way anyway.

Need some stainless hardware and the cabside platform will be hung. Didn’t drill the cab yet but all else is done.

It’ll cover up a nice sport for Last Minute graphics on the cabside that won’t show on the road. And be really ugly otherwise. Meh. Need to figure out how it gets retained up. Top edge is too tall to reach but ignoring that, I’m thinking TJ hood latches May work well for all these things.

Folding steps will be here tomorrow or Thursday. Going to be able to pin those on in several places.

Made measurements so I can put real numbers on my sketch and make a steel order.

Oh. Hits the power lines when on the near side of the driveway. Ok on the far side in front of the trailer. Where the welder won’t quite reach.

Ordered a bunch of little stainless hardware today. Will be here Friday. No one-stop in-stock for all I needed after checking Fastenal and Lowes so I'll wait for shipping instead of wasting time running around. #modernlife

see if I can get a fold up shelf off the door built tonight along with mowing and maybe washing cars and bleeding clutch and plugging trans. Things I shoulda done Sunday instead of wasting a day...

Ready for flooring on the door ramp from the cab. All designed, hinges cut. Ready for fasteners to arrive. Need to make up a support cable and a bracket for it.

I think I want to use that diamond plate aluminum from the kitchen hauler if it’s still available. 20-22” span 38” wide should be good I think I think.

Collapsible stairs arrive tomorrow, fasteners Friday. Still need latches to secure things for transport.

I don’t have a weekend, but could still wrap up with time to spare for rolling w _IF_ I can figure out legs for the big deck. I have 2 load locks for interim legs on the front part, so at least I’ll have the front part done.


So much claptrap. Hope it seems good when it’s done.

that's the one I'm thinking of.

I need to get on an earlier schedule. I'm bad.
