Mods that I like.

I like these three mods and will probably do all three off them next year or sooner depending on the weather.

A plug in the bed easier to get to.


A Camco Self Stor step brace

Under the front storage curtain


Camper rear bumper carrier mods.

I saw these two mods they are different.





I do like the generator one but that would have to be one quit generator to have it running there.

Bike carriers

Everyone has seen a bike carrier on the rear of a camp trailer.

 
But I have never seen one on the front like this.

Things you don't want to happen to you on your camping trip.

This one has happened to me luckily the hose I lost was old anyway.







And this one should be a reminder to us all, if you are going to add more weight to something you should add more bracing too.

A couple of future mods for the fifth wheel

I want more clearance under the trailer so this coming year I plan on adding 2-3" blocks under the leaf springs like these.






I also dont like the small levels on the trailer so I want to add a larger one on the king pin box.


Future suspension mod for the pickup

I have been thinking about beefing up the rear suspension on the pickup for towing and have settled on Timbren Heavy Duty suspension kit to add more stability & reduce sag. They are a simple bolt on and there is nothing to mess with after installing them, they are in absence just oversize bump stops to replace the originals.

They would look something like these installed.

Added one more stove to my camping gear

Today I decided to work on some of my Colman stoves in my collection and I added a 1950-53 model 413D to my usable camping gear I have less than $20 into it total and is bigger than the 425E stove that I have. My Sears model stove will need a new generator so it will wait.
