Thanks for all the help (so far!)

I purchased my first FGRV in July; a 17' burro.

I am in the process of putting some "saddlebags" on the back & a bike rack on the tongue -- both ideas from members of FGRV! Another member sold me his awning AND supervised me in the installation of the awning rail!! What a wonderful resource this group has been to me!!

Thanks to you all & especially to John for teaching me how to rivet & use butyl tape!!
You're a wonderful teacher, John -- thanks so much!!

These are the saddlebags I purchased online for the rear of the burro; I plan to put my water hose, electrical cord, wheel chocks, etc in them for easy access. Nothing too heavy, tho! Wish they were a bit bigger, but the price was low...!
(I'll post photos of them on the back of the burro when the project is complete.)

Looking forward to seeing the Saddle Bags on.
The upper arms of your awning look to be sitting a bit low on the trailer. I thought they should be placed a lot closer to the rail.
Have a look at the various installations in this thread:

I will see how the awning works & look at possibly moving the arm attachment connectors UP a bit......,
