Congrats on your new camper isnt it exciting now you can plan all sorts of trips and things to put in it and Camp Driveway is always a very good place to camp first time out. Post pic of it when you get it home and if i am not mistaken Friday will be the 5th

Have fun with the new rig. Hey have ya checked out Silver City, Idaho? If not it's a great place to explore! One of our favorites.

Oops, yep Friday the 5th, have not been to Silver City... Yet, I hear it's pretty cool, will have to make it there this year maybe, and the kids are excited, but it's hard to see past my own excitement. I wil post some pics soon.

Finally have some pics to post, in the driveway, but none the less, mods I've done to date: Welded framework to install a receiver hitch, I'm sure it's not rated for towing which I never plan to do, but for sure will hold the Thule 5 bike rack and bikes, and the beer bottle opener for those yummy micro brews without a twist cap.

My biggest draw to this trailer over the others is the large storage closet on the back.

Of course, my 4 y/o demanded having the bunk beds, when looking for trailers, he would take a quick look and if there were no bunk beds, he would head for the door and say "Nope, Not this one Daddy"

Nice setup. Wish I had the rear storage on my 2009 27RBEC. That looks very conveinant.

Would like to put a receiver hitch on mine but "welding" to the frame would be a concern. Would that not void my warranty?

I'm not too worried about warranty issues, this is attached to the last foot of the trailer, most warranty issues involving the frame would involve rust out, which after reading several posts on this site, rust is common and rarely involves warranty claims, most often everyone takes a can of rustoleum and touches up rust spots on a regular basis. There is a rear crossover framework, and the rear bumper to where I tacked the angle iron, and then to the two main frame tubes. Pretty simple and non-invasive to the trailer. I only installed the receiver to attach the bike rack, so I have not tapped into any wiring or anything else.

And yes, the storage compartment is very convenient, easily accessible and holds all the outdoor camping gear one could want to take along.
