As a new owner of a 2016 195RB I'm most fortunate to have found this thread. Thanks to all who contributed. Having reread the thread several times, I have two questions about items mentioned. 1.) The particulars on the gas struts used on the bed mod and, 2.) the swing arm tv mount above the frige. Those will be items on my short list of mods that I will appreciate info on. Thanks again for your mods on this great little trailer. Jeff

We upgraded our mattress with Sleep Country and glad we did. Beefing up the support with Shocks and wood strips as mentioned earlier in this thread is on my list this winter.

Great Idea!!

Sorry..... piece of junk Asus tablet would not let me finish. One thing i really wish you could do on the 195RB is reverse the entrance door. Makes no sense to have the door swing open to the area outside u use. Swing towards the back of the trailer instead. Secondly, the door rubs the awning if you have the electric awning set with any kind of angle

I'm wondering if the door opens like is does, just in-case it came open during traveling? That way it won't get slammed back and possible ripped off or damage the trailer.

I found the email copy of the order from Camping World last year for the bed lift kit I used. It was CW item # 66717 -> Standard Bedlift Kit - Hatchlift 120-080 - Furnishing Accessories - Camping World

I would like to add shelves to the pantry but not sure how to go about it. Anybody added them to theirs?
Second option would be to use some kind of drawer cabinet to insert in the current levels. We have lots of little stuff, food, cookware, etc. that is all piled up in a mess.
Any organizational ideas to make the space more usable would be appreciated.

We use the collapsible fabric storage bins found at Walmart in our pantry and cabinets they worked really well.

Wow, great ides for the trailers!
so far I've done this with our 174 BH Baja
1- Battery operated motion lights in all cabinets
2- 2" memory foam topper on the Queen bed
3- 32" TV mounted over bed instead of counter
4- Solar light on outside of Bathroom Skylight, works as nightlight in bathroom.
5- Cleat above water tank so 2 gallon gravity filter water bag can refill water tank if needed.
6- 4x6v batts for the 5x 100 watt solar panels to charge.
7-2000 watt/4k surge pure sign wave inverter (don't need a genny or xtra fuel)
8- trailer tray on tongue.
9- 6 gal water jug on rear bumper (also acts as ballast for tongue weight)
10- Rear bumper receiver for utility trailer (legal in Idaho to pull two trailers)
11- 4 camera 12v security system to monitor wildlife while boon-docking.
12- Midland Micromobile GMRS two way radio mounted under cabinet.
13- Indoor/outdoor carpet up front in cargo area.
14- hinged lid installed over fresh water tank (under mattress)for visual inspection when needed.
15- addition shelf added in overhead bin over bed.
16- Kick stand added for queen bed mattress when lifted for under bed storage access.
17 Towel hooks in bathroom added.
18 Battery operated solar motion lights on back & over windows on 3 sides, None on awning side. (great for night time set ups and security)

Awesome mods. Looks like a lot of added weight though.

it was at 1st, I modified it a little by adding the little utility trailer. Most of the tongue weight is burdened by the Durango, so the trailer axle is still pretty light... and keep in mind I have no generator to lug around with no fuel to tote. (at least anymore)

I have a 2017 195RB. I have replaced the two steps at the entry with a 3 step version made by the same manufacturer to make it easier for my wife to get in; I added 2 front stabilizers; memory foam bed topper; 27 series battery, WD hitch and power tongue jack were added when I purchased; I have just ordered HD foam to replace the foam in the dinette seats. The original seats are way too soft! We have travelled well over 10,000 miles in our first year of ownership with no real issues.

Trippin, nice mods. I’ve used some battery LED lights in the cargo area and wardrobes, but I like your motion-activated ones in the pantry. What brand/where’d you get ‘em? Thanks!

Do you have a link to the ones you installed? Seems like when I was looking at changing ours the 3 step brackets were going to be low to the ground, maybe I measured wrong. My wife has arthritis in her knees so the factory steps wouldn't do, I ended up buying some steps with a handrail.
