Finally picked my drooling jaw up off the floor. That is one heck of a rig! I can't believe the detail. Very well done, sir. I can't wait to see the rest of the process!

Man that is a mighty fine looking rig you built. Great craftsmanship. Your not going to get that kind of quality with a tag that says "Made in China"

Very nice rig, Looks like it will have everything you need including the kitchen sink, In pic #4 i assume the round tube covering the hitch is an anti-theft device? Can't wait to see the finished product!

Great follow through! That looks like a huge project. Good to see some old fashioned measure layout and cut. We are looking at a skill that is going away in this country.

well Mr. k.a.m. , it appears that you may have heard this before, but i can't help it. that is one sweet looking rig you have fabricated. i admire your anti theft device also. any word on how she pulled? how about what she ended up weighing? and of course last but not least, whatcha gonna name her?

Thank You n2dabluebbq, :D the cooker pulls pretty good for her size at around 60 to 65 which is plenty fast for me. As of right now the cooker weighs 5260 lbs. I am figuring a final weight of around 6000 lbs after my roof panels, sink and water tanks.
As for a name right now it is open for suggestions. :D

C.J. my son-in-law came over today and we got the roof on the cooker in between various thunder storms. I am happy with the finished product. :D
