Here is the medicine cabinet I recently built for our trailer. Fortunately, I was able to salvage the frame from the mirror glued to the wall. Unfortunately, the mirror had to be broken in order to remove it.

You guys show real talent! Now how about figuring out how to put a bathroom sink somewhere. All the swift trailers have the same bathroom so a fix for one will be a fix for all. I've run out of ideas.

I had the same problem on a trip to Hershey. It rained all the way there and back from Canada. Noticed the cushions wet when we unpacked the trailer. It was a leak around the front window, water ran down the inside and onto the plywood under the seat cushions (both sides). Had the window re-sealed by dealer, it's been fine ever since.

Towing capacity

What do you guys think about a 2009 Honda Element 4 cyl pulling one of these? I've been looking at the 154bh and the 184bh... I've been researching for a long while, and I can't find any other brand or model that's the perfect combo of the right price with the right size and weight. My concern is that the Element, according to the manual, has a towing capacity of 1500. It just seems way too low...

Frodo423;

I'm sure that is quite correct....166hp, 2WD, short wheelbase =

A/C Question

I understand my 145 RB Swift SLX has a 5,000 btu A/C. In looking at the 2014 model I notice it comes with an 8,000 btu A/C. Does anyone know if the 8,000 btu unit will fit in the same place as my current 5,000 btu unit?

I love our 184BH. I have the same complaints as others, so far I have:
- Installed a bar to make the tear down and setup of the dinette easier. (Thanks to the person who posted it last year!).
- Replaced the raised bump on table legs with hinge pins so it is easier to collapse the dinette legs.
- Replaced the electrical outlet under the dinette with a new one and added second near the coach/bench.
- Replaced lights with LED
- Welded scissor jacks to front
- Added small ladder to bunks (from campingworld.com)

Next I will:
- Add drawers
- Add medicine cabinet in bathroom.
- Add a powered fan with covered vent to replace the vent in the middle of the trailer.
