Good ole Amazon, again !!

As you can see, we used 3 of the 4 baskets provided..so the toilet seat would have room and for a body to be comfortable.
Ron had to cut the top, tension rod off a bit, but that was easy.

If you need anymore information feel free to ask !

The one thing I miss in our Four Winds is a night stand. I have all sorts of odd and ends I put there in our travel trailer.

I wonder if one of these in the corner of the bed would work? Or would I bang my head on it? Right now I just stick stick stuff down in the corner next to the mattress. If I want something, its a blind grabble search under the matteress in the dark.

Does it look like one could trim one of the rod halves is they need less than five feet?

Do you know if the rods (pipes) can be trimmed to make it less that 5 feet?

I think just about all motorhomes have some degree of questionable design proportions and inherent deficiencies:

Big square boxes 11-12 feet high, 7.5 to 8.5 feet width, short wheel base, long wheel base, square front ends...all built on truck chassis...going down the highway at 65 to 80 mph

Good point Kev. I just want to see if I can get a bit more control on the extension and compression with the 106-40-1 Sumo Springs.

I will be getting them today. I will do a comparison.

I had a shop that specializes in truck suspensions install my rear Sumo Springs
that I purchased on Amazon. I was so impressed with them that I ordered the front ones. I received them today and may install them myself, it doesn't look to difficult. I am not a mechanic but I can walk and chew gum. The hardest part will be jacking up the front of the RV.

I really like your dinette and where did you buy and did you install yourself? This is a great replacement though have seen recliners but the dinette makes more sense and especially storage. I look forward to your reply.
Thank you,
Linda Kershner

I had Crappy World install them when I bought the coach. We are dinette people. I made custom drawers - these are very useful. I made them very deep to maximize the space.

It is not a hard job...just a lot of thinking and planning. If you decide to move in the dinette direction, I suggest you call Thor and price out the materials. Compare price to a custom job from a master finish carpenter and upholsterer.

Keep Tinkering

Ken...I bet it would work...we chose this design, which are squared off boxes, to keep it closer to the wall...and you can place them on the pole wherever it works for you...and if you only need 2, rather than 4...it is your choice !

MaxxAir Vent Covers

A couple weeks ago we bought the MaxxAir Vent Covers, regular style, (not the EZ) at CW..they were on sale at a terrific price ! An item on our wish list.
This weekend Ron installed them ... perfect !! Plenty of room for vent lid to raise .. looking forward to using them this weekend !

Backup camera visor

Every time it rained my backup camera would be clouded up by little droplets of water making it tough to see anything through it. I solved this by making a visor out of a 2 inch PVC coupler and trimmed to fit. Worked great, no more water droplets and clear view. I thought I would share if anyone was interested. As one poster says " tinker on "

Penguin, Great idea. How did you attach it to the camera?

2" inside or outside measurement?

Hi Doc. If you look close you will see I had to notch the top of the coupler to fit around the camera mount on both sides. This allowed the coupler to sit flush against the body. If you go slowly and trim in small increments you can achieve a snug fit and some good glue holds it in place. I use a product called GOOP. It dries clear and is flexible. Hope this helps.
