Letís see your mods

I'm always enjoy seeing what mods people have done to make their lives easier, here's mine

1) One of my favorites was getting rid of the bag awning and replacing it with the carefree manual retractable awning.

2) permanently mounted folding shelves

I've got the same camper, and I've got problems with the awning. Tell me about this one you put on. Mine has a busted zipper, which I know can be fixed, but I wouldn't mind upgrading if I could.

Looking at that picture, it sure looks like you'd be putting a lot of pressure on the roof if there is no legs to support it.

It has legs which slide into the ends, just like a bag awning. I agree i would never consider leaving out without the legs supporting it. It's a freedom wall mount for carefree of Colorado. IT's a pricey bugger, but gone are the days of having to worry about stowing it when you go out for the day. the metal case keeps it out of the elements when closed too.

I loved my Fleetwood E2 Pop Up Camper and used it for 8 years before getting a small Motorhome. I installed a viair 150 psi compressor in the tongue, three batteries and a 2K Inverter in a metal toolbox on the front cargo area. A Flatscreen TV with Direct-TV Satellite Dish, three 80W Solar Panels and 30A controller, a custom shelf over the sink that removed for stowage in 30 seconds. A variable speed ceiling fan with remote, Satellite Radio and a removable cargo rack at the back for firewood etc. Also lots of trouble when people asked my Girlfriend if she was Casey (See Signs)

I really didn't mind the Dometic that came with it, except the zipper is so light and cheap it had issues from the beginning, and now it's unusable.

Is that a HW296? If so I have the same pup. How did you mount the awning? And what shelves are you referring to?

The only mod I have done this year in my ntm HW. I'ts mods like this one that make me pretty proud of myself, took me all of 19 minutes & I gained a whopping 6 x 8 inches of extra storage and we all know that's a premium in a pop-up

That awning is baller!!! No freaking way I'd pay $1600 for an awning. Nice and very convenient nonetheless
