Yes, there is a light on both sides of the garage. That is something Thor did right.

Lokisgirls,

Outstanding. Of all the mods I have done the recliners are the most....comfortable!

Here's to your conversion:http://www.thorforums.com/forums/att...1&d=1469663400.

OldChief,

The brand is Heritage. They were purchased thru Camping World from one of the monthly catalogs received in the mail. The following were the three parts:
- Heritage Right Arm Reclining Sofa, Beckham Tan, #334503.
- Heritage Left Arm Reclining Sofa, Beckham Tan, #334505.
- Heritage Center Console, Beckham Tan, #334510.

They were installed by CW of Statesville NC. Total cost of parts, shipping and labor $1369.30.

Not once have we missed the old couch!!!!

Doc

Now you can "L-O-U-N-G-E" in style. But be carefull...they will make you fall asleep if you stay there too long!!!

Did you have them re-install the two seatbelts?

Hey DocMike, As I am sure you have noticed, the new comfy sofa is a bit higher than the old sleeper sofa thus the table is now quite low. Do you know or have you looked into where you can get taller posts for the tables?

You might check marine dealers for table posts. Most pontoon boats use same posts for their tables. Also, Amazon.com.

Lokisgirls,

We have not used the big table to eat off since we did the upgrade. I have set the big table up to work off of once, but for the most part we use the little table in the first of the two floor mounts. I have been toying with making a mount that would fit into the two floor mounts but have a third mount in the center so as to use the small table between the two loungers. I'll post that if/when I do it.

Doc

Wall Hangers

We have an Axis 24.1, we're trying to find how to hang things on the wall without screws or nails. I tried 3M Command strips, 3M double side foam tape and Velcro. Nothing lasts every long, I'm not hanging heavy items. The wall covering has a slippery surface, and the shower walls aren't a smooth surface. What do other owners use to hang things on the wall?

We've successfully used 3M command strips. Have several setup in the bathroom as towel/garmet hooks, using the 3M soap holder in the shower, and several in the kitchen holding various items hot pads/keys/etc.

So far most of them have been up for a couple of seasons now.

I, too, had difficulty getting the Command Strips to adhere to the 'wall covering' in the bathroom .. they work well on the shower walls and inside the closet.
I had success next to the stove with a couple for pot holders, etc.

The texured wall covering is tricky. I finally got a couple to work...I placed them and did not use them for several days. However, I do not put any heavy items on them.

Good luck !

Kay

Looks very nice. How far can you recline the backs? Does the seat slide forward to allow the back to recline?

The way ours are mounted they reline fully, making falling asleep very easy!
