Yeah, like bikendan said, popupportal has lots of discussion about them. Some love them some done. I found mine on eBay for a decent deal and it makes leveling a snap. Most places I camp are pretty level, but need some leveling. And it works as a wheel chock.

On another note, you might fine tooth comb your trailer. I found a few spots around my storage bin that had some air pockets in the caulking that water would have gotten in during rain or while driving in rain so I caulked those spots. I also got underneath and caulked around any open spots I found around spots they drilled. I am sure I didn't need to, but plan on keeping this camper for a long time so want to keep chance of water getting in any where.

I use one on 228BH which is a 12 foot with the motorbike rack up front, with no problems. These are especially nice for a single person since you don't have to worry about lining up on the blocks by yourself when backing up.

We use ithe BAL leveler with our 14 foot box high wall camper and love it. We have camped on some unlevel spots too. I sometimes have an issue with getting the BAL around the tire, but a quick lift with a jack works to lift the tire slightly and the bal goes right around it.

Anyone know of a good add-a-room for these campers?

The only one that I am aware of is the one that Rockwood sells that zips onto the awning. At least that is what our dealer told us. We were interesting in it until he told us the cost. I think it was going to be like $500 from Rockwood. I haven't tried to look online since then.

I will have to look on ebay. We thought on would be nice to have. It was some ridiculous amount or something like that. The dealer said they have never sold one. All of the Rockwood accessories were expensive. They are probably the same brand as the one you bought too.

You can add on a Cabana awning to your trailer. Look up bannerbreeze on eBay. He has the best prices. You will have to add a rail to the side.
Here's a link to the topic on PopupPortal
Cabana thread

One thing I did to our pop up and to our travel trailer is to add deep slide out drawers to the storage under the dinette seats. I didn't like having to stand on my head or lift up the seat cushions to get stuff out of the storage area.
