We have a single slide behind the driver's seat with the couch on it. Really adds some space.

Will do. Unfortunately I pulled all my slides in today to make room on my driveway for guest parking at the house this weekend. If I don't get to the pics tomorrow I'll post them later this weekend. Those noodles saved me from many headaches when trying to retrieve things from storage compartments under the slide rooms.

I know it's not a Thor, but a couple of trips with the prior rig were fun due to weather.

First pic is a July 4, 2013 trip to New River Junction in Blacksburg VA. Notice anything strange from the pic. Hint, it took a F250 4x4, 2 logging chains and a tow strap to get me out of the campsite. The coach sunk in the mud 6 inches (up to the rims) overnight. I learned my lesson with this trip, never arrive at a camp sight after dark in heavy rain.

The next pic was the second to last trip before getting the Thor. This was October 2014 in Fancy Gap, VA. We stopped for four days on our way to Nashville for a week and then a 4 day FMCA rally in Crossville, TN. In Fancy Gap it was cold enough that the campground turned off the water 2 nights in a row to prevent freezing. The reason for the stop was the wife wanted to visit an Alpaca farm. The lesson learned from this trip was don't winterize the coach, take it out camping.

Rv'ing is not a mode of transportation, it is a way of life.

We have pictures like that from a "fall color" trip to Petoskey, MI, unfortunately the predominant color we saw was white.

As requested:

The first pic is a noodle cut into three pieces of equal length. I cut a slit the entire length of each piece and on two at the midway point if cut a 45 degree angle to allow bending the noodle 90 degrees.

The center noodle can be positioned where needed to protect one's head when accessing storage compartments.

The corner noodles protect folks from running into the unprotected corner of a slide.

I have the same system for the two slides on the other side of the coach.

I have closed the slide with the noodles in place and since the compress they do not hinder slide operation.

My wife told me she saw noodles equipped with LED lights and my response was get me three. That would help me eliminate a lighting issue that is caused by the outside light being mounted on the slide and not illuminating the stairs after dark.

I really wish that noodle had been on my slide!!

About six months ago I reached into my BIG rear storage bin under the bedroom slide, and very quickly stood up an banged the back of my head right on the edge so hard that I really did see "stars", "sparks" and blood!

I was knocked to my behind onto the solid concrete pad, and there was nobody around to witness my painfull faux pas. But he "funny" thing is that I could swear that I did see stars floating around my head, just like in the old Warner Brother's cartoons that I watched as a kid!

Once the bleeding stopped, I had a knot the size of a golf ball for about two days. I couldn't rest my head back for over six weeks, (just try visiting a planetarium show with a knot on the back of your dome)!

Gotta love creatively located pool noodles!

Dave,

Thanks for the look at the Noodle. Looks like the rest of that old pool noodle has a job from here on out.

that was us when we had the popup camper. Not only did we have to work an hour to set the pup up, we had all that other stuff to set up, and putz with..... and we did it even for one or two nights.

Now I'm reluctant to pull out a rug for under the awning..... or pull out DW's tacky lights for a 3 night trip....... a lot of times now I don't want to put out the awning and that's only the press of a button, because I'm afraid it will encourage her....

I'll pull the chairs out if the weather is nice, but I'm very reluctant with anything else....

Only drawback is they just make me want to hit the road!
