Toy hauler build

Recommended Posts

Made some good progress lately, I think I put in 80 hours this week between work and the shack. Rubber roof is on all siding is done except for the ramp door, windows and door in.  Taking off the plastic on the siding is like Christmas!

Anyone used flat sheet aluminum on the bottom of their house instead of diamond plate? just wonder if it would look bad.

The debate on what lasts the longest on the bottom outside has come up in a ton of posts.  General consensus has been diamond plate.  Still waiting to see how diamond plate with por on it holds up.  I think its really your call but if you go flat aluminum are you talking unpainted?  I would imagine painted will scuff off pretty quick?  If talking flat unpainted aluminum I guess its a personal preference but I would think Diamond plate would give more protection regardless of the look.

I was thinking raw 5052 sheet its a little stronger and more corrosion resistant than the 3003 diamond plate, + less $

Been plugging away, but it seems at times a never ending project! Starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel. Hope to have it on the ice in 2 weeks. Better late than never!

Working on the pine right now. Man MVP (major visual progress) I would have had my main lighting finished but Amazon sent me the wrong color lights so delay in the progress.

Sorry, I'm a little late to the party on this one.  We left a couple sheets of unpainted sheet aluminum sit outside over summer.  Not for any real reason, they just got set down on the pallet, and we never moved them inside.  When I went to install them on the ceiling, they were extremely corroded, and no amount of chemicals or sanding would get the corrosion off.  I ended up having to buy new sheets.  Even though the diamond plate requires a bit of upkeep, I think the flat aluminum would look 10x's worse after a couple years.

Oh well too late to turn back now. I'll just paint it if it gets too bad. Do you know what series the aluminum was you had?

You're foam guy did a good job! You don't have a ton of clean up it doesn't look like.

I had a friend of a friend spray it and I cleaned all the studs and such. It was a ton of work but we got it done in about 4 hours. Now I know why spray foam guys charge so much :lol:

I'm 99% sure it was 5052.  I'll check my receipts tonight and let you know if it was something different.  I think part of the issue was the paper they used in between the sheets, which certainly didn't help.

 

We cleaned spray foam ONCE.  Never again!  Amazing how much neater the guys spray when they are the ones doing the clean up :)

You might try POR 15 right from the start on it to keep it nice before it corrodes and pits. It's very tough stuff.

His looks pretty flat and looks like the guy stayed within the studs, mine was a real mess. It does look a little thin in a spot . Mine was probably a mess because I made the guy redo it, it was very thin in some places. You only get 1 chance at it.

I was able to get away for a night and to a shake down test of the shack. So far I'm very pleased other than I have to figure out my electric jacks to work with a wireless remote control. Running each jack individually is a pain in the rear + not lowering down all at the same time could cause issues I would think if I left the tongue hooked up to the truck.  None the less we had a good night with a couple fish nothing to write home about until the next morning. My friends had left to the other side of the lake for some morning tip-up action, so I decided to poke around and do some wiring before packing up and heading home. Then I just happened to do a bobber check and one was down, Didn't even hear the rattle wheel go! None the less I set the hook and at first thought I had missed it because there wasn't much resistance. Started pulling and then got a little tug (was thinking it was a small walleye) then a nice little run and it gave up shortly. Pulled up some more and saw this huge meat head looking at me! At that point i was worried I was going to loose it, but was able to land it! I've caught bigger walleyes in open water and in canada but this is my biggest eye I've caught in MN & on the ice :) Needless to say a great first outing in the shack! I think I need to invest in a selfie stick!

Tale of the tape said 27 3/4 I wish I would have had my scale because I think she was pushing 9 lbs on the calibrated elbow ;)

I sent her back down the hole for someone else to enjoy someday!

I know this is an old thread, but could you post a little more insight as to making the ramp door? I'm going through this now on my toy hauler build and am wondering what kind of gap to run for an R.O. to allow a good seal. What is H-Trim? Thanks in advance.

    • I'm OK with the replay if it's used for a challenge.  The automatic review is pretty lame though.   And I agree with Dave about the playcall.  If he would have thrown to an open receiver nobody would have said it was an awful call.  Cousins effed that up.
    • I have an terrova with Ipilot, (not link),   I lay the trolling motor in the bottom of the boat which is stored in covered storage.  It has been fine for several years.   Gets darn cold up around Cook.   No problem.  On the other hand I bring my depth finders and transducer home and store above freezing due to bad experiences with Lowrance transducers in previous years and ambiguity in documents about my elite 7s I have two  
    • ^^^^^^^^   1. zimmerman and stefanski should be fired, cousins benched. (or released)   2. the review by the "experts" in NY has destroyed any legitimacy this sport may have had.   Should note cousins contract. speilman got played. (he should go too)    
    • Ive never really been a fan of replay.  I think we've all seen cases where the refs still screwed it up after replay so we're trading one bad call for another.  Its interesting to hear the rules guy they have commenting on the broadcasts.  They always give their opinions on how they see the play and whether it should be overturned or not.  Yesterday there were 2 reviews that they disagreed with how the officials called the play after review which shows how its all still subjective.    You can look at every single play during a game and probably find something to call on both teams if you look hard enough which I think is a case of what happened during Diggs touchdown that was called back.  Cook either ran into the defender or intentionally tried to block him.  I'm not sure its 100% clear either way and isn't the benchmark supposed to be "clear and indisputable"?  Unfortunately now that replay is a thing pandora is out of its box and I don't think it can ever be put back in.  
    • 1. I think the play call was fine, Cousins just F'ed it up. Play action on first down after you have been running up and down the field on a team is pretty standard but throwing into triple coverage on a play like that is not.   2. Anyone who has ever advocated for instant replay review in sports is now getting what they deserve in my opinion. I could have told you that there would be a natural progression that would lead to this point and beyond. I say get rid of replay review in it's entirety and live and die by what referees call on the field. I was told at the beginning stages of replay that the reason was "so we get the calls right". If that is really the reason, you should be happy they got it right. 
    • Only 2 comments on the game.    1. What a lousy throw by Cousins in the endzone and what a lousy play call.  They were running the ball right down the Packers throats, why would you not keep running it.  2. I think I hate the new PI replay.  To take a touchdown off the board because they noticed someone maybe sorta blocking when they reviewed the scoring play is kind of a joke.  The PI wasn't called on the field and no one challenged it.  When you're reviewing the scoring play it seems like you should only be reviewing if the player got the ball across the line without losing control.  Pretty soon they'll be reviewing every lineman to make sure they weren't holding on the play as well and that none of them moved a thousandth of a second before the snap.  If that happens I hope they also review every defensive player to make sure they didn't move early, hold, or engage a receiver after 5 yards.  It really feels like we've gone too far with this replay thing and they're using it as a answer to everything when sometime you're just exchanging one bad call for another.    I think thats all I've got besides the fact that I haven't been real impressed with the NFC north so far.  The Packers and Vikings look average to decent but hardly superbowl contenders.  The Bears squeaked out a win but they are looking like they don't have much to work with at QB.  And the Lions as usual aren't worth talking about.  
    • The roof is finally on and I got some of the wiring started.  The tin came in over the weekend so I was able to pick that up last night.  I will start to put that up this week if the weather permits.
    • This is where:   Big Dave2 HSO Legacy Member Don't know much about football, huh?   😁   Doesn't matter if we have a good QB. We're a running team! 🙄
    • I hope they draft a good QB next year. That was a shiatty play call on first and goal to begin with. Pack aren't that impressive, neither are the Vikes.
