I started out by reversing the mounting plate on the hinged support arm. By doing this it allows the arm to pivot all the way down. I then through bolted it to the rear bumper using square steel tubing, that I picked up from the scrap pile, as a spacer . The thick wall tubing provided a 1-1/4" spacer so the carrier clears the rear door hinges. It only took about an hour and a half to make the mounting plus painting time.

It only takes a few seconds to low it before lowering the door. Not a big enough inconvenience to bother me and the price was right.
Would you happen to have a brand or model name for this tire mount?

Sorry for the delay in replying to your request, but we had been out of state. The tire carrier I purchased is made by Stromberg Carlson. Here is a link to a possible source, http://www.etrailer.com/Trailer-Carg...lson/TR-2.html

I purchased mine at a local RV dealership for about the same price as it would have been with shipping. I also did not like the idea of mounting the spare tire to the cargo door. so this seemed to me to be the best alternative.

I was just reading though the last few pages of post and ran across one that mentions the shower walls. I too worry that they may not hold up after long term usage and have began looking for alternative replacements. During a recent RV show I saw that some of the high-end RV's have actual white plastic shower enclosures. I did some research and found that Lyons Industries makes them for camper/RV use. They come several sizes. I plan to do some measurement on my tub unit when I get our 19RR out of storage to see if what they offer fits.

Glide: I made a ramp extension from scrap aluminum I found at a recycler in town. It is 4' x 4' assembled. I think it called diamond tread and expensive if buying new. I think I have about $50 in it. I bolted 1' wide by 4' long pieces of this stuff together, hinged from the back of the ramp. I lift it the edge of the old ramp about 11" to lessen the angle at the top of the ramp. I use small aluminum jack stands for this now, but first made them out of wood for next to nothing. Since taking these pictures, I covered the backside (it shows when folded up and camping) with paneling exactly like the kind and color FR puts on the inside walls (vinyl over luan plywood, kind of gold in color), Clint

Oneeye, half a brain here. Those tables are way too heavy. One slipped out of my hand while setting it up and nearly broke my toe (how would I know it NEARLY broke it??), cause I nearly cut it up to burn. It hurt. I like the size of the original. I only use one even though my 21RR came with two of the monsters. I thought of buying one of the cheap plastic folding tables from Wally World at the same height (30" ???), but thought of making one, similar to the way those cheap hollow home style doors are made and stealing the formica off a table, so it matches. Sounds like a lot of work, but like I said above half of a brain will cause you to try things you should just leave alone.

Angry

Hey has any body ordered any parts from the factory recently? I recently made contact with Jamie Tetzloff at the factory for pricing and was redirected to a fella named Nick Gray. It appears Jamie was transferred

I am working on an extension to the fold down couch so that on the occasion when anadditional full size bed would be handy we would have it. My plan is to attach a section of 3/4 plywood to the front edge of the existing couch with a piano hinge and then support it with X shaped braces also made from 3/4 plywood. I would liked to have topped it with a cushion matching the one that came with the couch in the trailer, but kinda got the run around from Nick when I inquired about pricing and availability. I was basiclly referred to the dealer I bought the trailer from. Because of my close proximity to the factory I thought could just go there and pick it up. Sure put a kink in my plans

Jamie is gone? That is a bummer. She was great to deal with. Hopefully the new guys is as good. Is it the same phone number for him?

I appears Jamie has moved up the ladder to the warranty department in the Wolf Pack/Vengeance Division. I sent an email to her that she forwarded to the new guy Nick Gray. I found him to be less than helpful. It might be just the part (a cushion) I was after, but I didn't get a warm fuzzy feeling. Here is his contact info:
