Oh trust me OC, I have tried every angle on this one! She is a severe optimist and believes nothing will ever go wrong. I am a realist and know that sh*! happens. So to her it will never happen, even though she never wants to close the awning EVER!

One day I am hoping to be the proud owner. Even though I am not currently I am a promoter. I have even gotten people to join the forums just to look at your invention. Not sure if any have bought but I try.

Just remember, it's easier to get forgiveness than permission.

disc breaks or toppers for slides...but I do like the idea of replacing the outside shower with a tap piped to the mini refrig with a mini-barrel in it.

So I go with "Happy wife is a happy life" and keep dreaming of having them one day.
Be careful, those 2 don't play well together!

if I could find a camper under 24 feet with a sofa, a slide and a standard queen or King, i would trade my current camper in tomorrow... If it had an outside kitchen, i might throw in the furry kids too

So that one thing would be a full length bed.

Perhaps you should wait until it starts raining and blowing, then have her go out and put things away in the rain!
