Keep me posted. The fun part is innovating ideas to maximize your space in there. There's a few guys on this forum who have done some really neat stuff. A guy named threebutchers has a 154 with tons of mods and links to how and what he did. Plus many others with good ideas on how to make it your own!

Also have a new 184BH

Congrats on the new trailer! Our family of four just got a new 184BH Baja in the middle of May and we've been on four weekend trips so far. We just love the trailer.

As noted above, Threebutchers has posted some great modifications. I followed his step by step instructions for improving the table/bed usability by installing a support dowel (to hold up the table while fiddling with the legs) and hitch pins to lock the table in an upright position. It works great; it is now so much easier to convert the dinette. I added one feature to that mod: I got a small rubber mallet from the dollar bin at the hardware store to use to open and close the support bracket under the table to avoid pinched fingers. We store the little mallet by pushing its handle into one of those broom-handle metal bracket thingies that are usually used to store brooms upright. I installed the bracket under the dinette seat right behind where your legs go when you sit down in the dinette. Out of the way but readily available. A little thing but makes it just a little bit easier to put the table up and down.

I also installed a one half of a Swagman RV bumper bike rack next to the spare tire to hold a portable waste tank when we take it along on trips where we may need to empty our tanks before we break camp. Before, we hauled the portable tank in the bathtub. I secure the portable tank to the bracket with a ratchet strap. The strap holds the tank tight in a vertical position and it doesn't even lean against the RV.

After four trips, we just love the trailer. We are a family of four: Mom, Dad, and five-year-old and six-year-old boys. The trailer works very well for us. Of course, there's not a lot of room for us to move around inside, but the way we use it, it works fine. The bunks are great for the boys because we can put them to bed and get them out of the way and then my wife and I have room to move around to get ready ourselves.

One feature we really like is the very large dinette. There is plenty of room for the four of us to sit there and play games, eat, etc. if it's rainy outside. To us, this is one of the best features of the trailer. Many dinettes, even in much larger trailers or RVs, are quite a bit smaller.

Towing with my 1997 Toyota 4Runner has been no problem.

Overall, a great value. Have fun!

Am I missing something, yesterday you started this thread about a new Jayco you are looking at

https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=20677

And just 48 hrs earlier you are dropping negative comments on another's members thread.

What gives.
