We got new camper tires on Boxing Day when the treads on one of the camper's tires went on our way to FL.

Santa brought me a Sleep Number Mattress for the Fiver. But she didn't offer to install it or take out the OEM.
Love her anyway.

ID:	54057Everyone knows Santa is partial to fireplaces...I bought one of those cute little ceramic heaters with the flames, used leftover wainscotting and a board from my great great grandparent's barn for the mantle. It just fit under the refridgerator that put in the closet. Ho Ho Ho

I got a rock saw for my rock tumbler so when we go camping I can find rocks to make everyone really heavy jewelry for Christmas next year. That's if I don't put an eye out.

A riot, isn't it? I'll post some pics, not really a great photographer, but here goes...
The Fridge is a Sears Kenmore, just fit in the closet with a bit of the right side modified(cut). I removed the top bunk, and gained great sleeping space with daybed kind of setup.
The fireplace hearth is a 6x12 garnet stone tile I had left over from another project.

I love your gear loft. I need to do something like that, though there isn't a lot of spare head space in the Campster.

Thanks, the gear loft is just a piece of wire shelving. It is good when set up, but going down the road it all bounces out. I use it for blankets and things. I'd love one of the builot-in cupboards, but my budget is a might tight. Maybe next year Santa?

Interested in your 12v change over - LED would be great if possible

New old rim

Santa Sister Parsy and her husband, Tom, who also have a UHaul, sent us a rim for our spare tire...Cindy, we read your post about the flat you had on way to Florida so we were ultra excited with our present. Friday we are heading downtown Jekyll Island to meet up with Bob and Mary and feel lots safer with a spare tire!

Fingers crossed for your trip to Jekyll Island. Bob told me that he thinks that they jinx trips to see Mary and him. We had to cancel our visit when Kevin got food poisoning or the flu. We think food poisoning, since I never got anything.

If you're referring to my comment about converting them to 12 volt, here's how I did it. I ordered the RV lights from Amazon, and another set of lights called "golf cart lights, or maybe it was golf cart Christmas lights"', but anyway they were just a string of the little bulbs with a cigaret lighter plug on the end. This light string had more bulbs than the RV light set, so I shortened it. Then just pulled the little trailers off the original bulbs and put them onto the 12 volt string. Looking back I should have bought a couple sets of the RV lights to put on the 12 volt string. From Amazon I also bought a socket end (female end) lighter plug with clips, I take a car battery along as I have extras, clip the lighter socket on the battery and plug in the light string. One caution with those lights, I have mine hanging on the edge of a canopy, and water will get in them from rain. I never noticed, but one of our grandkids did, so I had to make a hole in the bottoms to drain out the water.

Thanks so much, I'll check out the 12v golf lights. Since I'm about to rewire my trailer maybe I'll install a exterior 12v recp.
