right under the slide out!

Hey folks! before I do it I prefer to ask you a question!


When I slide out my bed (this is my trailer SC-255RS), there is a big room under the bed. I would like to put a tarp all around so like that I would be able to put the bicycle there so the rain won't get it wet at 100% and the next sunny day the kids will be able to use there bike.

What do you think about that idea?

Sounds fine. When we take my son and his young children and he brings along a stroller for them, we cover the stroller and put it under the slide out when it is not being used. This protect it somewhat from the rain.

I forgot to say that once the slide out will be opened, I'll attach the tarp to the slide out.

Some velcro on the "skirt" and on the slide and you are all set with a quick storage area.

Due to the wind I decided to use a rop and hook for the groud. It does a nice job

This is exactly where we park the bikes on our 235RKS. The slide alone keeps off the majority of the rain so that's enough for us. I bought a 3 bike rack that goes in the storage area to hold the bikes during transit and it goes under the slide once we're set-up. I lock the 3 bikes together when we're away.

Also, there's plenty of room between the bikes and the slide so no issues with opening/closing with the bikes in place.
