Lol thanks. I do want it latched for sure. I need a couple lockable storage areas, this one would be the sacrificial locked area. They spend the energy to break the plywood open and hopefully make it to the full metal box.

Cool idea for a side ladder! Might want to make a crossbar across that window screen, keep acidential feet from poking a hole in it

It'll be on a swing out mount to be about 5-6" off the side when deplyed...but yes we'll put some decorative mesh up.

Got my 1100 lumen led light mounted to light the camp area. Lost power to my roof top wires though. Got some testing to do tomorrow to get power through those wires.
