When I checked in to Haggard's RV Park a few days ago I couldn't believe how lucky I was. Because not only is it a nice place to stay, but when I was telling the owners, Nancy and Matt Fetty, that I was here to pick up my new Yamaha WR450, and explained that I needed to have a motorcycle rack built and welded to the back of my Arctic Fox fifth wheel. I asked them if they knew of a welding shop in the area that could do that. And Matt said said I sure do, mine!
I couldn't believe my luck! Matt took me into the RV storage area and showed me an old motorcycle rack that he had laying there and said he could weld some receivers to the frame of my Arctic Fox and put this rack right in them.
He took some measurements of the Arctic Fox frame and is getting some material to cross brace and strengthen the frame at the back of the trailer. And some time this week I'm going to pull the Arctic Fox to Pueblo where his shop is and have the job done.
Once the welding is all finished the old rack will need to be cleaned and painted. Matt is checking on a place in town that can sandblast and powder coat it, and if that's not too expensive I'll have that done, but if it cost too much it will just be me, sandpaper, and a rattle can.
