WOW! Calling me out! I have always liked this forum for the down to earth help. A bit disappointing. But i understand pics help and i like pics too. Just a busy boy here and not ever posted pics. Trying to post pics tonight. I actually did what i said i did. You want to see in real life, pm me and bring good beer. i be happy to show ya. We have learned a lot from this group since 2003 when we went fulltime for 2 years at age 35, some 20 plus years ago. At that time it was called open roads forum but think evolved to RV.net. We learned so much from the helpful group here and so i try to help by sharing my stuff, asking for input and end results. The reply to check shelter logic alone was helpful to me for this one. I did not know of the company's that made these. I never made one before, but done a lot of building and fab work. SO here are pics if i can figure out how to.
Thanks everyone for the interest and feel free to critique.

Open this link. Drag and drop the photo. Copy and paste the link that it returns. (This link is thanks to the user named 1492.)

I apologize that it came off that way. It was meant in fun.

Plus we'd like to see what you did. I think a lot of us are eager to know how your project came out and a picture is worth a thousand words.

Thanks you Guys! I will try to upload pics using the link when I back to laptop and not on my phone. I on the road for a bit and limit my use. Old school and cheap so I can retire. Gonna be middle of next week before I can try. I think u will find my method interesting and creative.

Dang it! the link gets blocked by my virus software with message that it is "known dangerous site not highly recommended to proceed". Any other ideas to post a few pics?

See if your virus software lets you mark a website as "known safe." Or, disable the virus software for 10 minutes.

I, and many others, have been using that site for quite a few years. I just click on "continue to the site" and go on. There is nothing there that will hurt you or your computer.

base rail of 2x3x3/16 rectangle tube in place. A "U" viewed from above, welded sides to ends and torch cut holes to go over 1 inch threaded rod. Welded 17 posts of 1 1/2 diameter by 3 inch tall to base rail at locations where the vertical pipes would be. Pipes go over the the posts and are cross drilled with 5/16 bolts and have a drain hole in. base outside dimension is 12-6 wide and sides are 27 feet long. I initially was going to do 12 wide and am glad i increased to 12-6 wide so can open doors on truck. If had room one of the 14 wide commercially available would be nice. This is in a tight spot so i can still back in and access it.
