Smile Hello from a long time camper

I have been camping since I was a teenager. I purchased my Jayco 17Z Ex-Port in January 2010. Before that I had a very nice pop up for 11 years, and before that I had a basic pop up for 3 years. I have tent camped, back packed, and camped on horseback over the years. Now the only time I "rough it" is when i camp with our Boy Scout troop. I am always looking at ways to improve my camper. I have modded this trailer by adding an outside shower, front stabilizing jacks, a DSI water heater, a Fantastic Fan, a shower surround, many hooks, hangers, and shelves, inside access to the front storage area, a rear tube for a longer sewer hose, a front tube for outside things like roasting sticks, pie irons, jack crank handle, a power tongue jack, and more.
