Re: Next tent project
Grandpa used a pick up backend part of frame, welded a tounge with hitch. Since he and his buddies went up in the Colorado mts for elk they needed ground clearance. Where the gas tank was he mounted fresh water tank, framed a metal floor and short sides. Built in side compartments for propane and generator. Some sort of small diameter pipe frame for tent . Tent was sewn by Granma out of old military canvas,heavy stuff. Looked like a minuture wall tent. Flip up bed platforms, small sink ,stove and heater up front all built in. Compartments all over. I think the cover for travel was a piece of laced on canvas. This was in the early 70's. If I can find a pic I'll post it
