Tom, great ideas! luckily, i don't have to screen so many things out here, since bugs aren't a big problem.
what's the rear step for, didn't know it's a new option? can't be useful when the bunk is out.
there are a lot of 23SS owners on RV.net, that have a lot of mods done on theirs. one put a huge sliding storage tray under his. another one installed a side window, by the sofa in the slideout, like the 21SS has.
i can point out a few of them for you if you'd like to see their ideas.
