Both well used. Now up to 170 nights camping and 40,000 miles on the TT since purchase.

It is not great, i haven't banged mine on it yet, but i have been lucky enough to have sites sloping away from where i park the trailer. I am sure once i get one that slopes towards i will be in for a world of frustration as i am 6'0 and on level ground there is about 1-2" of clearance.

Digital Thermostat

In preparation for our final outing of the year, I installed a LuxPro 2 Wire Digital Thermostat from plumbersstock.com.

Hi, I did a similar mod to the bed/kitchen table/couch. We did this so we can sleep with the sides/bunks closed especially in cold and inclement weather.

My 16xrb has 4 stabilizer jacks. I love all of your mods.

Nothing too terribly exciting, but I "installed" a plug cover and a coiled cable for the emergency trailer brake.

Great work.

Good thing we're not neighbors......we'd never be able to leave our driveways for camping due to our ongoing mod wars
