Thanks all
Sadie didn't have a router used a skill saw. One day of measuring. Next day cut, assemble, mark and unassemble and store for travel.
Bike rack holds six bikes , not sure the width of the fat tire bikes so those may not fit may bring the saw and open one or two slots to accommodate fat tire bikes.
Bed frame is sturdy enough once the air mattress is applied it will be the right height off the ground.

Located my ratchet straps and chains. Lag bolts are a little rusty, but not too bad.

For the record, when those puppies are heating water a single EU2000 strains a bit. We always made sure both were running before we fired it up.

I don't use a generator on the yacht.
It has a rather elaborate electric system of its own, with multiple alternators and deep cycle batteries with a 2000 watt pure sine wave inverter. You never have to think much about power it's just always magically there.
The Land Yacht is bad ass.
