Holy moly, you've been busy! Great job; I especially like the engraved signs, did you make those yourself or have a shop do them? I also liked where you put your 12v voltmeter; very professional. I also put reading lights in, great placement on yours. Happy Camping!!

Thanks! I purchased the engraved labels from http://www.legend-plates.com/ and although they come with the tape pre-installed, I used a couple drops of super glue too. I'm actually typing this in my campsite at Ft. Flagler State Park, WA. :-)

Two of these intrigue me. I am planning to put an extra signal light somewhere midship on ours as well. (We have a 2011 28RKS). Curious about where you tied into your signal light circuit. Did you run from the front of the trailer at the main box, as everything along the frame is enclosed with the belly wrap on ours as I'm sure it is on yours. Also, your wide turn sign......did you pick it up at a truck shop?
Thx
Floyd

We own a 2016 28RKX MAXX. I have 1 more suggestion for a "mod" you may want to do. In our trailer, you can feel a lot to air movement, especially in cold weather, coming from the front cap area into the trailer through the open area below the hang up closets on both side of the bed. We asked about this and was told it's to "ventilate the front cap" ( who knows???). We did however, have mouse droppings in one of these openings and on that corner of our bed spread after a long storage period. Based on that situation, we decided to close these 2"X10" (approx) openings to the degree that small animals cannot enter the trailer. I bought some very light metal cross hatched material with openings too small for the critters to get through, cut it to size, put some black duct tape around the edges, and screwed it into the paneling inside the opening. We have had no critters since the mod and still allow the cap to be vented. If I say so myself, it looks pretty nice too if you peak into the opening.
Have fun with your great trailer, this is our 2nd MAXX as we had a 28RG for a year before we upsized. Nothing about this trailer we don't like and it's essentially been trouble free for the year we've owned it!!

Thanks! Any possibility of a picture of your mod?
