Great mod ideas. If I can fit the toolbox, that is a must. How did you set-up the screen door latch? I actually thought of removing the handle all together and going back to magnets like my parents TT had.

Sorry for the long delay in answering. No internet or phone where we were!! Actually, we bought the latch in Camping World for under $6.00. Easy directions, drill one hole.

Nice work Rick. like that wiring job. I did the door latch as well. One of my favorite mods is the bar for the screen door. A popular mod on the forums is putting Lexan in the screen door. You can keep the door open and have the AC or heat on. Our trailer is dark with the door closed so this was something I was working on today.

Thanks, The lexan mod sounds good. On our Last camper we had (SunnyBrook) I used a clear Mylar type film for the door very light weight and I was able to velcro it on the door, easy on and easy off. When removed, it was rolled up and stored away, taking up little space.
