Washed with a wash and wax, dried Wash Wax All and then applied Rejex to 1/2 of front cap, cab and bottom half of the rear. Hopefully, I will finish tomorrow.

Can you tell me the dimensions? Looks great and the wife and I love this idea. I assume it fits between the couch and bed when up? Thanks in advance

Hi immecor. There is two separate issues.

1st, in dealing with the black hole, I decided to make a removable ledge board. The ledge board prevents pillows, small animals and grand children from falling down behind the bed into the black hole. The 1st time we used our camper we lost 2 or 3 pillows down the black hole. Still can't find the dog, but I toss food down there from time to time. (Just joking)

I'm a little bit taller and need all the mattress I can get. So I decided to use the space between the mattress and the wall to my advantage.

I fashioned 2 boards 4" or 5" x 3/4 x 29" long, adding paired 2" angle brackets to slip over the vertical edge of the bed "box". The fit and placement of the angle brackets is critical so they will clear the existing bed box brackets.

You could make one board 58" long with 3 sets of ange brackets, but I find that 2 29" boards with a total of 2 bracket sets each board are easier to handle and store when you put the bed up.

This creates an enclosed space to put the bolster. The bolster adds length to the bed as it fills the hole.

I had my auto upholstery guy make up a 6"x6"x60" bolster. It was a little pricey but it looks good. (A sickness that I have). You could do just as well with a 5" or 6" piece of foam 58"to 60" long and cover it with a sheet or large bath towel to save $.

The boards took about 4 hours an 6 beers to think out, and an hour to fit and build.Click image for larger version

So one day I looked at my 2010 Flagstaff 8526RLWS and noticed I had run out of things to modify.

So, I just closed on a 2019 Flagstaff 8529FLS and can start all over again!




This is the ACTUAL camper I bought from Total Value RV in Elkhart.
I am picking it up right before the rally.

Did you trade it in or keep it.
I hope you saved all the goodies you added. Poles, stab jacks, etc.

I'm sure you cou li d find a job in ND, we have more jobs than unemployed people. Lots and lots of oil fields jobs, I'm sure there is something you are qualified for.

Got an offer Thursday, another promised for Monday, and another in theory soon. 17% pay cut, but 40mi closer to home (between home and kids' school). Not perfect, but more than unemployment.

I know a welder that moved to ND. Oil scares me. We (previous company) did work for Baker Hughes, and they were wildly up and down....

Very nice Herk. I'm impressed with the four slides. Excellent choice and TVRV is a good dealer. We bought ours from them last year? See you at the Rally.

Traded it.

I am told I was born at night; but not last night!

All my OC goodies are going on the new one or given to friends at Goshen.

Spent 3 solid days removing most of the mods and easily removed upgrades.

Not looking forward to "pimping" my two air conditioners and buying another Soft Start for the back AC. Just need to remember the reprogramming steps for the one I took off the Coleman.

Did nothing this weekend! Really enjoyed the R&R, ridding in the golf cart watching moon rise and sun set. Beautiful moon this weekend.
