DW and I will begin full timing next summer.
I've been lucky with my back, but not my legs. Too many crazy days in the desert....it's a long story. My right ear is shot due to almost 20 years of riding a Wide Glide with V&H pipes. Anywho, DW bought me a bungee cord kit that came with all sorts of brackets. I install one of them from side to side to stop tings from moving around too much. It was a quick fix, but not a permanent one.
I will eventually do something about it because it's painful crawling inside that basement. What it needs is a tray similar to what's available on the 15's. Man, if I had access to the materials that FR has, I could actually make these RVs a lot more functional. Instead of having the tray populate the entire basement, it just needs to be in the middle hump part. I would make it the size of the middle part and as wide as possible. It will then slide out up to the door or flush with the side wall. By making it that way, you still have room on the sides for stuff that can be reached from both doors.
I need to find some heavy duty sliders that could hold some weight and then make the tray out of wood.
