Here are some quick Photos I took today. Getting ready to go to Yellowstone Next week. The ladders strap to the ramp door on the inside with ratchet straps. The carpet goes behind the bikes. When setup we remove the center E track back to the bed. The outside E tracks are out of the walk area. When the bikes are out there is some shelving added to the close hanging rack. Also put 2 inch memory foam on the beds in the garage and 3 inch on front mattress. Makes hugh difference in the comfort as the mattresses aren't real comfortable. They are foam, but sure don't remember very well, especially on large folks like me.
Don't know if you can see any of them but I bored 4 holes I think 1 1/4" at the floor level below the windows. Two on each side. I put chrome electrical plugs in the holes. My thinking is if you get a leak you may be able to discover it before the windows fall out on the ground and get it fixed and dried up before it is too late. That fiberglass insulation will soak up water and stay wet until the wood rots out. Pain in rear to fix and can be expensive. My experience with corrugated siding is the seal around the windows will leak and before you even know it you got a really big problem. The Fiberglass sidewalls usually have styrofoam laminated to the inside and outside wall and some have aluminum framing which is pretty forgiving on leaks and many times less likely to happen. I speak from experience on all this.

Nice, I was thinking of something against the wall to hold my chairs. Awesome job. So do you like the memory foam?

I like the memory foam. We also put a mattress topper on top of the foam and makes it even better. The 3" is better than the 2". Young folks don't tend to notice it. Us more seniors do.
The rails are all Oak as is the tv mount board. Plan to stain to match the cabinets when not using the Camper for a while to let the smell out.
I wouldn't go any deeper in the walls than 1" with the screws as they aren't real thick. If you can find studs you are better to use them. May help to get a stud finder. they aren't always where you think they are.

I haven't had this problem, but I'm willing to help where I can. Have you tried calling Happijac (801) 544-2585 ?
