We did the same thing.



Before we removed one, my wife (who does the inside work) used to stack and lash down both of the chairs; the chairs aren't heavy.

There is room to slide the second chair in front of the door so you don't have to stack them. It does block the door but you can enter from the bedroom and still reach the panel.

We put the two chairs side by side in front of the door…fit perfectly. We use the bedroom door when slides not open…

Mostly pleased with the 2604ws…suggest you add an outlet in the bedroom..we had one added on the side of the "nightstand" (under the narrow closet…)

Also suggest create a breeze fan for all vents...

We are currently removing the "wallpaper" border….
(actually contact paper…yuck!) Brightens up the place. Where it was on the wall was very poor proportionally ….Looks much better, will post pics when all the glue removed…my suggestion is to order with out the border.

Good luck and safe travels

Interested in the border removal. We ordered the Flagstaff 26 RLWS but my wife hates the border. WE didn't know you could order it without. Would like to hear how easily it comes off and see pictures.

I never thought to ask about leaving the border off….

So, I started to remove it….was very disappointed to discover it is contact paper and not wall paper…(even more reason to remove it)

Heat it with a hair dryer and it will pull of relatively easily …. you may need to cut with razor knife at trim….removing is the easy part.

There will be adhesive residue…GooBeGone seemed to work the best…requires multiple applications…just keep wiping and rubbing, use small rags...I also used a plastic putty knife to scrape the excess adhesive as the GooBeGone softened it….

When the glue was all removed I cleaned the area with Dawn dish liquid.

It is so worth the effort….!

I will take some pics then figure out how to send them

Just curious when your camper was built. My wife was hoping to remove the border as soon as it arrives from the factory. She thought maybe if it's not on very long it will be easier to remove.

The unit arrived in July 2014….it is a 2015…

This is our first outing so just getting used to where things belong and such…
AND getting rid of the border….the fact that it is contact paper makes it even more important to make it go way asap…

really brightens things up and makes it easier to decorate and make it your own!

Let me know how it goes!

Cargo Weight

While on this model, does anyone know what the true cargo capacity is? Web and print says around 1500# but I have been reading that yellow sticker on units are now showing less than 800#. Also has anyone weighed yours loaded to see how much weight you are carrying in cargo?
Thanks
