Install more factory tie downs.

Just installed two more factory tie downs plus two extra's installed by La Mesa RV. They wanted $300.00 to install the last two. Flush mount factory 1200# tie downs. Scribed the circle with very small paint can, routed out with router, and used 5/16 self tapping bolts with large washer and nut to backup. Perfect match and lookes great. Totale cost $12.67. They charge $130.00 per hour. Est. 2hr. plus tax and parts.

I can now haul motorcycles or my Can Am Spyder RTS SE5.

Good for you! I had a service center install a black tank flush for me because I wanted to be lazy and they had the camper for other stuff anyway. $30 part, $125 for install. That hurt and taught me that I'm cheaper than I am lazy.
