That is precisely the plan. The camper top was highly functional for schlepping stuff out to Carlisle this year and keeping it dry, but it's already been removed and stowed in the attic above the garage. I'm in no hurry to bring it out for an encore performance - we could always have an "open hearse" if needed next year. :lol:

At night.
That's just a little bump . . .

Could be worse - could be in your garage and you have to look at it every damn day! :lol:

But with any luck, it should look a little bit less like a "work in progress" by the time Carlisle 2009 comes around.

Yeah, looks like that poor Sierra has been caught in a, um, "compromising position."
