Congrats on the new trailer! We have a 2006 Sport 165! We love it and go out about 7-8 times per year.

We have done a few light mods:

1. upgraded cushions with memory foam and new upholstery
2. changed mini blinds to custom curtains
3. medicine cabinet upgraded with elastic bands to keep contents in place
4. added memory foam topper to the bed
5. solar panel upgrade
6. top bunk is used as storage

We are thinking about converting the bathtub to storage as well since we don't use the shower that much.

We are also thinking about adding a 2nd battery, but I'm not quite sure how yet. Has anyone added a 2nd 12v or dual 6v batteries to a Sport 165?

Has anyone thought about painting the exterior? I'd like to cover up that ugly jayco bird with a cool paint job

I just bought the Winegard Pathway X2 with a dish receiver VIP211Z. I hooked it up yesterday and called Dish and added it to my account and it works great. The Winegard 6002R which includes the Dish receiver sells for about $550 here in the Houston area. All you have to do is connect the antenna and set it out and turn on the receiver and it will automatically find the satellite with power supplied through the coax cable that comes with the set up. I would recomend it.
