Great privacy curtain and sliding door mods. Your sliding door is done so nice it looks like it came from the factory that way. When I can get to it, I'm going to follow your lead. Will make our sliding door a little wider. Access to our spare tire would be so easy for tire pressure checks/filling and getting to our camp chairs & stuff. We would seldom remove the spare but if needed can always lift the bed.

Our best mods have been a 4 inch firm memory foam mattress, dual propane tanks, a TV mount and a catalytic converter mounted on the cabinet panel left of the refrigerator.

Thanks again for sharing all your pics!

Rtidwell, like the stereo addition. Are those cabinet panels strong enough to hold the stereo and speakers, or did you put something behind them to strengthen?

I didn't put anything behind the speakers except for some foam baffles. The speakers seem to be very stable.

For when it's parked.

Camp4two- is there a way to move the subject guide that you made to the top of the discussion?

Thank you for doing that. It's very useful.

Has anyone found a good way to put access doors on the sides of the dinette bunks?

Where does everyone put your level when setting up?

I added externally mounted levels to the frame. I put one on the frame just below the front of the trailer on the driver's side so that I can step out and see it and then know if I need to drive up on some leveling blocks or not and then I put another on the side frame between the door of the trailer and the front so that I can turn and see when level as I am cranking the tongue jack. I tested a number of places to get my trailer level before adding the external level. I tested several places on the kitchen counter and several places on the floor. None showed the same, but all were pretty close. I also checked several places on the frame under the trailer. Again, it was difficult to find something that made me know the trailer was truly level as everywhere gave just a little different reading. I just picked something and went with it.

The reason I added the levels to the frame was that I did not like the stick on kind as they seemed to move around some. Also, I just did not want four more screw holes in the side of the trailer to have to reseal every so often. I just used some small self taping screws.

I usually just use a 4" level on the floor in front of the door. It just doesn't "look" or "feel" level like that, though.
