What plans do you have for your trailers this year?

I'm going to look at replacing the outdoor speakers this spring. Also thinking of buying a full size grill...I'm sure I can think of a few others...

Until I make some money all my mod fun is on hold, although I do have my mind on some awning lights that will not break the bank. Cold weather is holding up start of crab season!

Well lets see, not much improvements needed so far. Heck she's not even 1yr old. Just a thorough rough cleaning and inspection, good ext washing and then lots of camping. Oh, I will hang our new flat screen and got to find better coffee pot! We are chomping at the bit to go camping!!!

Plans are to do some camping, then camp some more, then retire in about 9 months, and then really start to camp. But for the immediate future, our wish list includes a surge protector, set of Horst waste tank sensors, set of Plug-it-Right stabs, and a new set of quad entry steps to replace the current 3-stepper (DW has some knee problems that a 4-stepper would help). Don't know how far along that list we will get, but we can dream, can't we ?

Our plan is to purchase containers to fit all the storage areas.
Probably purchase the LED awning lights.
Put new tires on
Load it out and go West

We just want to use it as much as possible and travel to new places this summer.

First goal is to get her out of storage (the snow just won’t go away fast enough). Camp a lot, hopefully we can average at least two trips a month. Unfortunately I have a bad work schedule this summer. I have plans to make custom wood crates for the storage holds, to organize my junk. Modify the stereo cabinet, to incorporate a USB charging station.

I'm expecting the new Eagle sometime in mid-April. I have some quick first mod's I do to every trailer, the first is the Maxxair smoke colored vent covers for the 3 openings. JAYCO is building a few mod's in for me: slide toppers, high speed vent fan in the standard outlet for the rear bunkroom, and all lino (no carpet).

I have also bought a brushed nickel arch spout bathroom faucet and the Oxygenics shower head.

First big upgrade will be a built in Dirt Devil vacuum for the unit. After that who knows

Well, I've got to install the power jack and I'm in the process of fabricating a slide out for the front storage area. Yeah, it's a '13 but there are always things to do to make it "yours". Oh, and a door for the bathroom area.

I've got a few mods to do as soon as I get the camper out. First is a tool box on the tongue for the 6 volt batts. I picked up a tongue box at Harbor Freight, looks like it will fit well. I'm also replacing the stereo/DVD player (120 VAC) with a Jensen AWM970 12 volt unit I picked up on Ebay.
