Oh yeah, I forgot about the cable ones. They look really nice as well

I used the BAL Hide-a-spare. Was easy to install and works great. I used 4 self tapping Teks screws per side and an impact driver.

I hear you on the tow vehicle ratings as well. Just because you can pull it, doesn't mean that you should. Perhaps the best solution to sway is a fifth wheel set up, but we just aren't there yet, and we still like the canvas.

The box was very needed for 'outdoor' stuff that was greasy or smelly. It was a great addition!

I just know that mine pulls extremely controllably with my changes, and it works for me. In fact it is far more stable than the big pop up ever was. YMMV

...let me know if you want more info on my mods or more pics.
For as little as I use mine (almost never), my 261 is just perfect. Maybe even overkill. It can sway a bit but not too bad, especially if you keep speed down a little. If we start camping or traveling a lot more, I'm likely to get a Class A. But yeah, I love the 261 for what we use it for.

Only other mod I can think of. On the 2016 models and upgraded on others, I guess, there is an outdoor grill/kitchen on side of the unit near the rear. It slides under the bottom bunk (from the outside, obviously). I think it would be nice to just put a door on it so I can access that storage from outside. Know who sells an access door for these things?

That sounds simple enough. I'll order one.

Spare Mounting

Check out the Hide a spare - it gets the tire out of the way without using the bumper.
