The cargo bar (2-in-1 Support/Cargo Bar)

I was wondering how this system was working for you? How many did you purchased 2 or 3?
Since the posting is considered old it wouldn't let me put in a reply post.

Who are you asking about the cargo bar? If its me, I bought just the one and I don't use it any more because it won't lock securely at a given length. Instead I use a pair of 5' long pieces of conduit, sized so that one of them slips inside the other. I drilled a hole through both pieces to slip a pin through to set the width needed. The conduit ends have PVC end caps attached, with 1/4" bolts sticking out the ends, which fit into holes I've drilled in the metal edging of the A-walls. The unit is both a curtain rod for a room divider if wanted, and a bit of extra support to keep the sidewalls from pushing in in a storm (although I'd hope not to have the camper open in a storm bad enough to need it).

One of the sidewall holes. I found some nylon inserts for the holes at the hardware store, so the wear on the holes themselves is avoided.

If you were addressing someone else, my apologies for sticking my oar in when it wasn't asked for.
