Insulation installed in front cap area behind shoe storage box. :-/ ( thank you sabre factory. NOT!!! ). Lubed axle bearings, serviced slide out gears, upgraded bunkhouse mattresses and installed a marine powered subwoofer to the under side of trailer cavity from floor to frame making it unseen and trouble free. :-)


Any camping will do. :-)

What'd you do for insulation up there? The closet is a huge source of heat for us in the summer.

Spray painted my Fence Post Sewer Storage mod, including the brackets, so that it's all ready for install tomorrow (weather permitting).

Received the "Trailer Aid Plus Tandem Tire Changing Ramp" (bought from Amazon)

Received the TST 507 TPMS system (with 8 flow-through sensors), and configured it. About to install truck sensors in a few minutes. (will install the 5er tire sensors tomorrow when installing the sewer hose storage mod)

Lubricated the new X-chocks, which were very tight to adjust out-of-the-box.

You may want to test the Trailer Aid before your next trip to make sure it will raise the unit high enough. I never tested mine and guess what when I needed it now it sits in the garage.

Did you get the original/regular one, or the "plus" one ?
I did read that the original one only lifted 4 inches, which was not enough for many TT's/5er's, but that the "plus" version lifts 5.5" which should be enough.

I will make sure to test it though. Thanks for the advice.

Mine is the plus. I intend too add something on the bottom or pick up some type of stackable blocks which should increase the height the inch or so I need.

Set up a door mirror from Big Lots for the inside bathroom door - it hangs from the top of the door and the hangers slide into place behind the mirror so there was little set up.

Paired it up with 2 sets of felt covered hooks that also go over the bathroom door from Dollar General for towels and stuff.

Those hooks hold in place a table runner with an interesting pattern on the other side of the door. Table runner is also from Big Lots.

Then, I set up several storage tubs for the pass through -Ziplock 15 gallon containers with inner seals whose dimensions are very nearly the size of the opening.
