That's funny. I had just seen one in a campground one and thought it was a cool idea. When the question was asked about the bike rack I googled it and that was the first pic that popped up and screen shot it.

Thank you all for your input and suggestions. We picked up our camper this weekend and it is wonderful. Now we just need camping weather! The family is ready to GO!

Built a pin box bike rack as well. Would hold 4 bikes in very little space

Since I am new to the forum and have been searching through hundreds of threads and posts I am still looking for some information and thought I might find some help....

1. Is there a thread or post with some of the forum lingo, camping lingo and abbreviations? ie...my DW? Is that my "Dear Wife"? TOAD, FROG...etc?

2. Looking for generator options for our 50amp 5er that will accomodate both A/C's running and tv on.

I didn't want to create new threads if ones already exist

Thanks!

Anyone out there with the 356QB Hemisphere or 356QB Heritage Glenn have issue with converting the U-shaped dinette into a bed, mainly in regards to the cushions. I have yet to figure out a placement scheme that does not end up with a decent size gap / hole that you would feel while laying down. My previous dinette cushions created a tight, edge to edge fitting top surface. Any other experiences like this or have I just not found the right combination?

TV - additions...

I fabricated rear mudflaps to catch road debris and made them mountable to my rear receiver hitch.

I fabricated my own front hitch and bought a Swagman over the receiver bike rack. Works great. Blocks a bit of radiator airflow.

Still have not successfully placed the dinette cushions and made them fit when its a bed.

Love the camper!

a question for you 356qb owners, if removing the BBQ rack on the back bumper, could I put a bike rack on it instead? wouldn't block the back door then, i think anyways.
