Mtn Bike/other Mods to a 27HFS

Made a few mods before the family and i took a trip to Disney a few weeks ago.

Most notably, the hanging of the Mtn Bikes, havent seen that yet.

Also, since the 27 has the side garage door in a kind of dumb spot, i removed that sides bench seat. this way the left bench can be used for seating during the day and a bed at night for my 4 yr old. i layed some carpet out for the Disney trip. also removed the bathroom door to the living area as it made for easier access between the 2 and more room cause of it.

Awesome mods. I'm still toying with the hose storage below the camper. Where did you find the hinged "doors" on the end of the pic pipe? Is that 6" pic?

Ahaaa....I found them....here...http://www.ustubedoors.com/tube-door-kits.html

Don't know cost, but that is a nice storage tube setup.

I bought the kit off amazon..heres the one i ordered:

Robot Check

As far as the pipe, i bought that while visiting the inlaws in St Louis and went to Menards. mine didnt have the bell on the end though, just to let you know. although, i had to cut almost 2 ft off anyway.

Next step is to figure out how i want to ultimately do my Motocross setups...right now ive just been using a 2x4 with the strap hooks going thru the 2x4 and attaching to the loops in the floor already

I am in the process of doing that exact thing for my bikes. I was going to use a fork mount though. What did you screw to? I have a 29hfs and the saddle will stick into the door, but I'm not super worried. I need more room to get a WR250 in.

there is the wall supports. pretty sure they are alum. u can feel them behind the wall since the wall itself will kinda deflect. but i also used the knock test as well. i was tempted to screw into the tv backer, but i wanted it to be higher to hold the bikes high. not to mention it was easier to put the plastic cover over the bar to, since it was above the door jam. id recommend screwing the bike brackets into the rail itself with the top screw hole...otherwise they will fall off while in motion on the road..ask me how i know :/

i still have plenty of room to squeeze my Mx bikes in there...then again i guess it depends on how u have yours in your hauler? either way you should have an extra foot of garage space compared to me with the 29

First off I have tooooo many toys. Then again I am living in here. I need my toys. Currently, Triumph Street Triple, Fat Bob, 2 mtn bikes, CX bike and road bike. Then there are other toys too. This is my first week living in it and so I am moving and shaping it how I want/need it.

you can never have toooo many toys! just not have enough room is all =) if your living in yours im surprised you didnt buy a bigger hauler? Dont forget to update me on how it goes with the arrangement, and remember it didnt happen without pics!

we had 2 street bikes, but sold them in the plans to buy me a new one, but then 1.5 children later and her in nursing school kinda delayed all that...that and i am kinda holding out for a gsxr750 with traction control and tid bits...not to mention hopefully a slightly better looking front end...if that doesnt happen by the time the wife starts working as a nurse then i will most likely find myself with a new zx10 or the new gsxr1000.

so for now, we just have our mtn bikes and what we (I) primarily are doing now is mx.

I agree, never really too many toys.
It is big enough for me, as I am solo. I have been in it 2 weeks. Sure I would love a 5th wheel with a couple of bump outs. Then I don't think I would need a house again. I send you some pics of the garage. I did the same thing as you, but a little different.
