I have to come up with some kind of mod to my pin box flag mount also to be able to use it in conjunction with the Tailgater.

On second thought, I make just trash the Tailgater mount and come up with another one that will let me use both at the same time. I like the automatic dusk to dawn light on the flag.

[GULP] After seeing yours OC, I am sorta embarassed how mine looks

Just a 5'3" flag holder mounted on the pin box...

Sheepishly moving your dusk-to-dawn light to the Bucket list as well

National RV came up with and patented that design just before it went under in the industry crash. The company that bought the remaining assets from the bankruptcy supposedly did it primarily to get that design, but I don't think it's been used all that much.

Sure was a pretty 5er on the inside. Bedroom was spacious. Looks like a major headache if anything would go wrong with either slide.

Well, discovered we had a first time event in 39 yrs of towing yesterday coming home. The passenger side rubber plug came out of the bumper and deposited itself and TOWTA's laundry board somewhere between Mocksville, NC and home. SO, off to Lowes this morning and got a 6' 1x4 pc of clear poplar to make a new one to her latest design. Old one was 84" long with 1-1/8" x 2" figure 8 slots on 6" centers. NOW, she wants one only 72" long with 1-1/4" holes on 3" centers. As usual, she got what she wanted. The new one is made, sanded, stained and sitting in the sun drying. I bet the new rubber plugs never leave the bumper as I will pop rivet a stainless steel hinge to one side of them and rivet the hinge to the bumper and pin them closed.

So THAT's what you've been up to! Just told Fritz I hadn't seen you post anything since yesterday. Told him I was worried you or Ms. Frankie had gotten sick or somethin'. Shoulda known you were out in the shop makin' somethin' for your 5er again.
And YEP, Weezer DOES have those two satellite mounts (the ladder one having been dubbed the "LH thingamajig" by OC) thanks to my BFF! And here's a {{{{{HUG}}}}} and another thank you!
