Brian,

Speak to me oh wise one about this mat!

(We have a folding mat for the same thing but always interested in what others use!)

Cheers,

Bob

We also added Bal X-Chocks and the stability is greatly improved.

The small awnings are fine with us, the one on the slide is the BBQ outdoor kitchen area and front one is living space. i have owned trailers ith larger awnings and the smaller ones do handle the wind better.

Best of luck getting everything organized! I redo the garage often!

Glad to hear about the smaller awnings working out well for you. We live in Nebraska and it seems like it's never calm around here. My salesperson tried to talk me out of the slide toppers for this very reason. I ordered them anyways.

Outdoor mat - adding that to the list, too.

Let her try the original equipment before you hook up the Oxygenics. She'll become a believer.

x2 on the flow thru mat. They do keep alot of the dirt out and they dry quickly when they get wet, they are also easy to clean. Good move on the slide toppers. When we had ours out last weekend the wind blew good all weekend knocking down the little flower thingys off the tree next to us the toppers kept our slides clean and they handled the wind well. The camper next to us was up on his roof sweeping off the slides before retracting them.

Tell your DW that this is only the beginning...if she resists, well, just tell her that a "New" RV is like a "New" House - got all the walls floors and so fort but ya still have to FURNISH it :roflb lack:

Slide topper should be included with every rig. I camp on Lake Huron, Lake Erie and Georgian Bay. All very windy places. Never an issue slide toppers. We do out the awnings in when it gets windy. Misses the last ever production run of OC awning poles.

That's great to hear B and B! Thanks for giving me reassurance on making the correct decision concerning the slide toppers.

Should have the attaching kits in a couple of weeks. Have to go to Arkansas for a funeral. Long time dear friend passed on today.

Glad you like yours, we love ours. Wish the 2014 we have had the cupboard doors for the island on the outside versus stove side. Hard to get to, but still storage! Our shower door stuck on the lower opening corner making it hard to open and close and was tearing the sweep. Had the dealer adjust it and now it is working great!
