I looked at concrete but it would be about double the cost because I do not want a concrete truck crushing me drive way. I also decided to use bags instead of a dump because I did not want rocks in another part of my yard. So, I basically used the $3 bags of medium grey stone from Home Depot. I framed it with 4x4s that I salvaged from a shed tear down last year.

That's a good price and it looks great. Can't wait to get mine started.

Spent the weekend getting the fiver washed and waxed for the first time since we bought it in July. Man do I love all those Windows but they sure aren't much fun to keep clean. We did discover we are gonna need to get a taller ladder. We had trouble reaching the top of the front cap and the top in the back. Oh well, it looks good for camping with my friends in a few weeks....

Real easy, I bought a park it 360 and I am on a corner lot so I can pull straight out through my yard when dry.

What did you do to your camper today?

Here's the blocks I made for the stabilizers. With a way to keep them together so the don't go everywhere while going down the road.





Here are the my style x chocks.



In this picture you can see the x chocks and 3 of the ramps




Made a place to hold the equalizer bars while not in use. Also doubles as a place to put the cheater bar that you use for the bars.




For my sewer hose (need to extend the holder 3 feet to fit my hose) I'm going to have to come up with something else because the 4in pipe I got at homedepot loosely fits over the pipe already there........ Think I might get like a 4-5 square plastic fence post and modify the door to attach it.
