My steam bent oak bows was received yesterday, and I will also make the stakes after the excellent description of Gary Johnson at the T3-C page. The stakes are only precut for testing.
Here are some pics.

Nice looking bows Roger. I plan to make bows for mine, but not put the stake sides on, just the bows fitting into the pockets. My end result should look something like your first pictures. Thanks, it gives me a better picture in my mind. (I'm not going to steam bend them, I plan to make up a lamination instead)

I made my own out of conduit - just for functionality.  They really work good and are light and easy to take out.  My tarp is also custom made.
I am having problems uploading photos now (after I have uploaded a number of them)
So I will try webshots.
Click on the photo to see.

The steam bent bows I got, was from a gentleman in New York. I was lucky my wife was in New York last week so we could make the arrangement to pickup the bows and she could take them with her back to Sweden.

That´s what I call an understanding and lovely wife!Hug
 
For you interested in these bows he have three sets left.
Contact Norm Dauerer   DauererN@aol.com  he is a very nice guy to deal with!

Randy,
 
I prepaid the bows three months ago, but if I remember right the set incl. hardware was around $250.00-270.00. Contact Norm direct to get the correct price, he is a very nice guy.

That's a good price, steam bending is very difficult to get right. I did some about 15 years ago (then swore I would never do it againLOL) Finally threw the steam box out 5 years ago. That's why I reverted to lamination.

Next is the Chuck Wagon Canvas top.
Anyone with an original, who could provide some measurements and closeup pictures?

Roger - wow - looks good.
I wonder how good your canvas cover will stay on going down the road?
What did you end up doing for a coupler?  It looks new.

Dave and Gale,
 
Thank you for your kind comments.
 
Dave,
 
The new coupler and the taillight panel is only there to get it registrated for road use.
As soon this is done, I will put the original Fulton coupler and the Arrow taillight back on.

Roger,
I seem to recall that one of the top makers had a listing for that cover, if I can find it again, I'll let you know.

Gale,
 
Thank you for your thoughts about the canvas. I think New Life make it, after several email requests during the last 8 months without any reply, I called them some weeks ago and the guy told me they charge  $450.00 (if I heard right, quite expensive compared to their CJ2A top) for the chuck wagon top. With freight to Sweden 3,5% tax for car parts and 25% Swedish VAT on the total, it would be quite expensiveCry.
Maybe I will try to talk Jpet in to this when he is ready with the CJ2A topBig smile
Then he must have lot of spare timeLOL.

I figured I'd have to make one myself since I don't plan on using the sideboards, just the bows, so it would be a "non standard" cover. The plan is to make a prototype out of some other material, then either make it out of canvas, or, send the pattern to New Life and have them make it if I can't get my machine to sew canvas (or I'm too intimidated to tryLOL) Plans are kind of fluid right now with me, I'm trying to get the trailer painted and assembled so I can move it, the 2A, and all the other junk in the back into storage so I can get started on the new shop this summer. I think that's going to occupy the majority of the good weather this year. (but I'll have a warm place to work on things next winter.Big smile).
Edit: Just had a thought, do you get charged VAT if someone sends you a "gift"? PM me with the answer.
