Off this morning to go down and drill some holes in the rear ramp and hopefully hang a spare tire.
We'll be doing a bed project here soon as well, extending the length of the bed frame by 8" so the "regular" sized queen mattress fits on it better. As part of that project, will be adding the under bed storage too.

If I get to it today, I might tackle that sewer hose project - just depends on how much beer is in the fridge.
Happy camping today everyone. Will try and remember to take the dang camera with me.

Finished some more mods yesterday. I added the cabinet door to make the storage are under the bed accessable without lifting the bed. Turned out nice. I don't know why they don't do it this way from the factory.

I added a fold down end table on the side of the couch. This should be pretty handy.

I made some mud flaps out of diamond plate aluminum. Jury is out how much they will help.

My next project is to make a spare tire carrier under the trailer. I have a plan we'll see how it works. Also going to add one more cabinet door below the wardrobe for the bedroom. I see a ton of wasted space there.

That is some very fine work rskwyo. I plan to duplicate the under-bed storage and folding shelf. Believe it or not my 2013 model has the storage at the bottom of the bedroom wardrobe. There is also a small storage area under the frig. I hope to get photos on the site tomorrow. Today is a day devoted to the grand babies. Still considering the spare tire storage options. I too am thinking about some type of under unit storage. If not that perhaps a tongue mount of some kind.

Thanks! I saw some pictures of a 2013 model that had the door under the wardrobe. I looked at mine and it will be easy to move a heat duct in that location to accomodate it. Mine has a very small storage area below the fridge.

Did the spare tire to the back door mod this weekend as well as insulated and sheeted the cubby. Here's how everything turned out.


Went to a place here called Metal by the Foot, scrounged around in their scrap bin for some flat aluminum stock 1/8" thick for all of $2.20 and made the plates for the front and back.




Here's the outside of the back. If you do this mod I will tell you the door is frightfully easy to drill through. Expanded styrene is about all thats in there...wow. Almost scary easy so don't be freaked out by how fast your bit goes through the door...REALLY!

Here's the finished product.



Also insulated the cubby with some 5/8" styrofoam and then applied sheeting to the interior. The sheeting can be had at Lowe's or Home Depot back in the Kitchen Dept. Its the stuff they put on the end of the cabinets and a 6 ft x 32" sheet runs $20.



I thought I had pics of my little fender well platform - guess that'll be a next weekend thing when we head out for our second trip of the year.

WARNING: I like my Harleys. But this trailer...this 19rr...I'm tellin ya - I'm reeally geekin out over this thing...I mean almost scarily so! Sonofabitch...I'm kinda scarin myself!

After completing the sheeting, I took that "wall" between the H20 heater and the rest of the cubby and went to work. The end result is a solidly fortified barrier between the lawn chairs and "stuff" and the H20 heater. A spare 2x2 and some L brackets, and Forest River's "wall", re-purposed as a real barrier...somehow I feel a little more comfortable now.


Here ya go - next week, will be extending the bed platofrm and cutting a hole for an under bed storage area. Gawd - I feel like I'm on Tool Time!
Beer time everyone!

I have accomplished the first of the many modifications and upgrades on my 19rr. I started with correcting the angled contraption in the cabinet over the sink and then replaced the flimsy bracing on the drawers. Iam very happy with my camper but it is amazing how they do everything so cheaply during the build. I added a photo of the overhead cabinet that is over the bed in our 19rr. This is something new for the 2013 model year. It seems like it will workout for us, but I need to find some cabinet hardware that will hold the doors up/open.

Next project is the under bed storage access. Time to call the factory.

I did the diamond plate mud flaps for a little extra protection to the dump assy. I don't drive many gravel roads so hopefully it will make a little difference. I ordered overhead door struts from CW, just haven't installed them yet.
