quick mod .

When my dw and I bought our camper last year she happened to see another with wood stair treads .
So in talking about it on here with members I ran into trudinator whom's dh does wood work and after discussing what needed to be done we forged ahead to make a couple for my dw .
Well after several months of being to cold to put them in I finally made time with this boring winter .
Thank you trudinator and her dh .

Looks good and will probably hold up better than that thin carpet they install at the factory.

That of course is what we were thinking ! That carpet just doesn't hold up to traffic!

Step Treads

Thanks for your post, we have decided to do the same thing in our new Crusader Unit...we only have one strp so that should be a breeze, we are however putting the step lights in for night time, we saw this in a Sanibel unit at our Dealerships showroom...bought the lights and switch yesterday..

This sounds like an interesting mod -- does anyone have a photo showing the 10 amp fuse in place?

They look great Turbo! Thanks for letting us help you out. We've been spending a lot of time in our workshop since launching our small business. But we'll still have plenty of time for camping when the weather finally warms up. Hope you have a great season of camping! Trudinator
