What we did was bought a 28" flat screen with built in DVD. We took the quick release bracket from the front side of wall and replaced that bracket with a regular bracket. We then mounted the DVD TV on the bedroom side with the quick release bracket onto the stringer behind the wall. More then enough support. And boom!! Now kids can watch movies outside trailer also!!! Good luck!

We are picking up ours today. Where do you find sheets for those odd shaped bunks?

Tow vechicle

What do you pull your Surveyor 245 BHS with. I just want to make sure our truck can handle it. We have a 2004 Dodge ram 1500 quad with a 5.7 hemi
GVRW is 6650

We just use regular sheets and fold them under. It hasn't seemed to be a problem.

Our tow vehicle is in my signature. It does a fine job with the trailer. There's quite a bit to knowing if your truck is capable. What are the tow ratings, payload? I have a tow rating of 11,200, so this trailer is about 62% of my max. I wouldn't want to be much closer, but that's because I have a low tolerance for feeling like the truck is working. Post this question in another thread and you'll get better input.

I've been meaning to post photos of all of our latest mods...just haven't had the time. The recliner and end table now have a table cloth and lamp. It really feels just like home on a camping trip.

Next weekend, I'm going to be greasing all of my bearings. This trailer came with Dexter's EZ-lube axles. In my opinion, that's a big plus. From what I gather, Dexter is the preferred brand, and the EZ-lube looks easy enough. For those that don't know, they send grease through both bearings, not just the front (like Buddy Bearings do).

Tongue jack foot

Does anyone know the size of the tongue jack post for the 2015s?
I want to get an order in for camping world sale tonight and include one of those but don't know if we have a 2" or 2.25" post.
I seriously can't understand why it didn't come with one but whatever

I'm looking at the 247bhs which is basically the 245 just with the center island. My question is everyone calls this a 24 footer yet the specs are 29 in FR's site. Little deceiving.

Id love to see some of the mods.
