Nice video thanks for putting that together, looking good. The axel flip, was that a DIY or bought kit? Cant use one on my TT but thinking of rasing my utility trailer which is a spring under axel configuration. thanks.

Thanks for the video. I have a 184BH and I have not dont much yet. I plan on strange ing the back bumper and adding a bicycle rack. I bought a Champion 2000 watt inverter generator (very quiet) for $399. I plan on making a ladder for the top bunk this year. I don't know how long the door knob will last with my 5 year old using it as a step. I did a lot of modifications to my previous camper, but I just have not started on this one yet.

I love your axel flip. Did you do that yourself? Can you help get me stated on a parts list for that? Why did you change the tires? Did you not trust the new OEM ones?

Great mods and upgrades...especially the Pepsi bottle opener...may have to explain what it is to the younger generation.

For the axle flip you need http://www.easternmarine.com/dexter-...kit-k71-384-00 . This will give you about 4 1/2 more inches of clearance.
I changed the rims and tires http://www.easternmarine.com/goodyea...inted-rim-lr-c because of stories of blow outs with the stock tires and i wanted all the ground clearance i could get also.........Once i did the axle flip and upgraded tires i had to buy a extra step. http://www.amazon.com/Camco-43675-Fo...ywords=rv+step This works perfect. I hope this helped.

My dad used to work for Pepsi cola in the 60s and he give my a lot of old pepsi cola items. I thought this would be cool to put in our camper.

I bought the kit from Trailer Parts Superstore on the internet. It installed with no problems and no welding required.
