Changing cloth...

I feel like an idiot asking it, but... Folks, WHERE do you change the cloth? Like I have a stock trailer no dressing room, so if we going to show this year I can't think of the place to change it (in truck is impossible because I'm way too tall ).

We have to ship in daily to shows, so I usually wear my show clothing under something else so they don't get dirty. I have changed once in the vehicle on the way there - haha, not an easy feat! And unless you want to change in a porta-potty (eww!), I have no other suggestions than maybe getting one of those portable change-rooms with a curtain (or a make-shift on e would work too)...oh yeah, and make sure you have someone to stand 'on guard' for you! Lol Good luck! :)

Kitten, they make panels for stock trailers, so you can cover up the sides.

I don't have a stock, but I've changed in my trailer more than once. Peed in it too, when the porta johns were just too nasty.

Bahahahahaha! Thank you, ladies! Yes, those portable toilets don't look extremely attractive for changing the white cloth. I'll google around for the panels. I have no problem changing it in trailer, just with open sides it'll be too exciting for the public I'm afraid. And unfortunately it's usually so hot here starting May that I'll bake while driving in 2 layers of clothing (although I may try that one too).

Tuck a blanket over the sides so they arent see thru? Or use a tarp threaded on some rope?
