Lazy Long Weekend Project

About five years ago, we got a cute little R-Pod 173T.  It’s a trailer with a pop-out tent to extend the internal living area by about 36 sq. ft.

Very cute and just the right size to be towed by our Santa Fe.

A couple of years ago, my very patient wife suggested we remove the sofa to make more room inside. (not my photo — found on the tubes)

Brilliant! Awesome to have more space.

But what to do with the couch (sofa)?

She suggested we (I) figure out a way to use it in our Garage-Jang.

Garage / training room.

Of course, I over analyzed it. Here’s my project sketches to prove it.

Fast forward to 3 years later. Yes, it’s done.

And perhaps I over-engineered it a bit. (seriously. 2×6??)

I don’t care. It’s done. It’s solid, and it’s actually comfortable.

Long Weekend Win!
