On the wolf pup 16BHS, there is a tiny gap between the front bench back and the bed frame. So small I could not get a vacuum hose nozzle in there. I ended up wrapping duct tape to a yardstick to clean out the metal shavings and wood chips from construction ;(
I took a strip of memory foam I had cut off while making bunk pads and stuffed it in at the bed ame level to stop items from falling in there. Drop your keys in there, you would be screwed! Also, that yardstick is staying in the TT just in case.
I STRONGLY recommend that anyone who has not done so, get a big piece of cardboard and crawl around under your TT. Find where and how all the exposed lines go. I found a couple unpainted sections of my frame surface rusting (coated now with rust converter, to be spray bombed black soon) and a cut section of the underneath plastic at the toilet to black tank fitting. All other piping and electrical cut throughs were sealed with expanding foam. I stuffed in insulation and then sealed the plastic with minimal expanding foam. Don't like invites for hornet nesting.

I would recommend painting spots on your frame with Por15. Its a paint and forget. Spray bombs, unless rustolium, I wouldn't waste my time. My thoughts, others may differ!

I have done something to the TT or bought something for it everyday.
Being a submariner, I'm used to making the most out of small spaces.
From one black shoe to another, thank you for your service. Left Slippery Rock last Friday and making the journey back west.

Got in the Eva-Dry dehumidifier today.
Also some safety chain hangers from www.fastwaytrailer.com Chain Up. Got an extra for my SIL.
Ordered via Amazon a Camco screen door push bar & insulated vent cover.

What did you do to your camper today?

Started making my side bed steps for my F350. Wanted them to match what was already there. Bought a used set of running boards and cut them down to fit. Mounted the brackets. Next step is to fabricate a mounting point on the truck frame.

Was going to buy those for my chev 3500 hd. But just could not swing it after buying the truck this year. I did find a nice short ladder made by viking industries that hangs against the tire and folds up pretty small. Should make reaching the 5th wheel hitch and safety cable easier. I also added an in bed 7pin connection to keep the cord from rubbing the paint on the tailgate.

I have the tire step also. This should be more convenient.

I agree. I will probably add a bedstep eventually. Just couldn't this year. I love the look of your and how it matches. My rails are black powder coated. Tougher to find a match.

Unfortunatly there are no close place to camp near nyc. I live on long island, couple places out east to camp but then u have to park at train station and take long island railroad to city. Never drive into the city, too muxh traffic. You could camp just north of the city and see if metro north railroad is nearby.

Bottle Opener

I am looking for help, I have a 2019 Roo 233S. I want to put a bottle opener some where outside on the camper but with it being fiberglass and the bottom skirting below I am not sure it would go. I was thinking maybe right inside the door? Where else has someone put theirs?

I wouldn't attach it to fiberglass, to much give, find some wood just inside the door, or carry a church key

Put it on your chair or ice chest so you don't have to get up!

I put ours on the side of my re-built outside table that hangs on the rail of the flagstaff:
