Is that the area with the wild horses...or am I way off...I think we looked at vacationing there last year, if I remember correctly. Nice pictures!

Tied down without the de-flappers the awning material will be absorbing all the wind gust's energy which could cause the awning material to detach from the trailer.
That's one thing I miss about the manual awnings. I have had mine tied down with de-flappers installed in some decent wind conditions and never experienced any problems.

Of course if it's too windy or if a sudden wind gust does come up, I do roll up the power awning.
Yep, that is what I am going to do...Bought a First-Up Canopy for $80 at Walmart that I will tie down.If I lose it not a huge financial hit. I always like a table outside and a place to store my chairs in stormy conditions....Or even someplace to sit. I bought the sides that go with the Canopy as well.

Great pics! Looks like you had lots of fun.

I do tie my electric awning down to secure it and haven't had any issues yet...

I built the "reciever" portion myself and bolted it to the frame. No holes drilled or welding to the TT frame.

The rack itself is a Hollywood Racks Sport Rider 4.

Here is another closer pic of it.

Thank you. I wanted a rack, but knew it could not go on the back of the trailer due to bouncing etc... I also did not want to drill or weld on the frame, voiding my warranty. Lastly, I did not want a front receiver hitch on the truck making me any longer than I already am.

I came up with my idea above. It is a bit overkill, (my friends call it the motorcycle rack) but the bikes don't move, they stay put. No bouncing at all, and I can watch them in the mirror. They also miss the tailgate on the truck by plenty.

I am humbled that you would want that on the facebook page. It was just made from necessity..
