Tom, the small sized Miracle Mat fits perfect in the entry & it is flat (so you'd be able to open the inside-the-door entry storage cabinet) & has that microfiber technology to capture dirt off the feet and holds liquids. I put my wet shoes on it when I come in out of rain. (The demo at Costco sold me) haha I saw these for sale at BBB when I was there the other day.

Great to hear you are oit enjoying the new trailer. Hope the adjustment from your Coleman hasnt been too painful!

Is that the same as the mat in this link

The 20X30 regular size is $59. Ouch. It must be a great mat for that price compared to ~$5 at HD.

Thats the mat, but I only paid 25- at Costco. Yes - they are awesome carpets!

Try www.pizazzdirect.com - theyre only 25- there...but still more than 5-. Watch the video on the site - that was the same type of demo I saw at Costco in person. The guy even let ME step in the dirty mud water and walk on the carpet. It was awesome! haha

I'll see if my bud with a Costco membership can take me shopping.

Just tell your friend to get you a gift card and you could use it anytime in Costco without your friend. I use to be a member but don't go often enough, this way I save the membership fee.

I think this is a seasonal item - have only seen it at Costco in April, last year and this year. You might call them to see if your area Costco carries them in stock...otherwise maybe just order from Pizazz or try Bed Bath & Beyond.

Yeah Ko, we shop Costco regularly & always get an annual check back for more than the membership fee paid...but I buy dog food, sport drinks and frequently used disposables (batteries, tp, garden dirt/amendments, etc) cant beat the cost of vitamins an other OTC stuff.

I just loaded up everything except my cooler. Boy is that easy. She opens up so easily and there is more room than I dreamed possible. I have two tent campers traveling with me who will have plenty of stuff, so I wanted to leave room in the truck for them. The space on top of the dinette and seats is great. I love having external hatches to the interior compartments.

I was worried about packing too much, but there is more room than I can find stuff to put there, right now. I still need to put some jugs of ice in the fridge so we'll see what more I can find tonight.

One more thing. I cannot find a single 12V outlet in the trailer. Is that typical or am I just special? There is not one near the converter or around the microwave cabinet. It looks like I have to get busy on my electrical mods next week.

Yeah,
No 12v outlet from the factory. An easy mod if you decide you need it. If you dry camp a lot I can see the need. I've been thinking of it but have only dry camped twice now so it hasn't been high on my list.

Thanks. I'll probably put one with the cable/antenna jack just below the microwave. My old trailer had a combo outlet. The main thing is to have a place to plug in a 12V fan at night. I can do that and put a kill switch on the radio at the same time to stop the parasitic draw when dry camping.
