I just threw some salt over my shoulder for good luck. Ended up smashing a mirror with the salt shaker.

Thanks... Iedas needed

Thanks to all of the M&M Lites for posting greetings. Here are a few thoughts I have that MAY start some discussion...

Nancy and I are just about as new as possible to M Lites. We are waiting for our first Lite to be delivered. Needless to say we are excited, maybe I am more excited than Nancy, and value any information we can hear about your M Lite experiences.

A little about you...
A little about us... Nancy still is working and looking to retire at the end of June. I am a retired "shop" teacher. After 35 years of teaching, SHOP morphed into Technology Education. We live in West Chester PA just west of Phila. We are waiting on a 2015 Mini Lite 2503S and tow with a Chevy 3500 Van. We are planning on traveling with our new M Lite and are looking at the north east for this summer. Nancy wants to hike up Mt Washington NH. It looks like there are a lot of nice campgrounds in that area.
We have been boaters for many years so land cruising will be interesting to say the least.

Topic questions:
In your M Lite travel...
Do you travel with bikes? Where do you store them? Do you use a rack?
Have you made any modifications to your M Lite?
IF you have a slide does it function alright?
If you camp at one place where are you located?
If you use your M Lite to travel where is your favorite spot... so far?

Nancy has "interior" questions...
What sheets do you use? Camping world short queens?
Here is one, where do you put your trash can?
Have you added any towel racks?
Any tricks for storing things in cabinets during travel?

Well there are a few thoughts to start things off... What is on your mind?

Skip and Nancy Best

Bests, I'm too slow of a typist to answer all questions but I'll take a stab at some of them.

--bikes: I bought a "Bike Bunk" from Camping World and store the bikes over the propane tanks on the front yoke. You cannot mount a bike rack on the weak back bumper. You can search this issue in this forum. There has been a lot of discussion on the weakness of the bumpers. I had to have the cross bar on the Bike Bunk cut to take out about 4" and then welded back together to keep the cross bar close to the front of the Mini Lite so I could get 2 bikes on and not run into the back of the tow vehicle.

--sheets: I use regular queen sheets and just tuck the excess under the mattress. Cheaper that way.

--trash can: I have a plastic trash container with a top that I store along the side of the bed. I put velcro on the bottom and on the floor to hold it in place and it doesn't fall over.

--mattress: many have found the mattress uncomfortable all by it self. We purchased and use a Perfect Harmony Mattress Topper from Camping World for a much more comfortable mattress.

--carry extra fuses. Know where the fuse for the slide out is-outside under the front of the camper behind the battery (at least in my 2012 unit).

--slide works fine. just treat the seals once in awhile.

--towel racks: I put towel racks on the inside bathroom door and a towel shelf (Target) over the toilet. You have a much larger bathroom so you have more space than I do.

--mods: Winegard Wingman attachment to the TV antenna
Winegard Sensar signal meter
grab bar across screen door

This forum and YouTube are the 2 best places to find answers to your questions. We do most of our camping in state parks.

Congratulations on your new TT.
