I believe your ''Oxygen Plus'' still has the sharpest look.

I will certainly drop by whenever I travel near Cornwall. I haven't investigated yet how to add a shower, would certainly choose a simple solution if it works by gravity. We do have a vent pipe though. No A/C in ours... Interestingly, a sticker behind the kitchen sink door says it is NOT recommended to install a A/C roof unit, which is too heavy for the structure. This is probably why yours is installed at floor level, under the seat in the front.

Since we've bought ours less than a month ago, we are into redoing all the upholstery, checking everything from A to Z:

Electricity (12V converter), fridge, plumbing, LPG hoses... We do have the original electric water heater but thinking to perhaps install a ''Marey'' (or similar) tankless propane water heater which must be installed into the shower because of external access needed for the vent. Also maybe add a solar panel on the roof to keep the battery in top shape...

We already installed new brakes and tires, the most important.

Today was the beauty salon job, a professional wax (fiberglass boat style) made in 3 steps... Quite an exhausting task...:-)

More to post soon!
More pics...

My hot water tank is propane fired and is located under the bed next to sink and the 12 volt water pump. A removable grill allows access from the outside. Insects from time to time make nests in the ignition system - a bit of a nuisance.

I have a DVD player hooked up to a small TV/monitor. I can hook up to my Raspberry Pi computer to the monitor if the campsite offers WIFI.

I have seen pictures of several Oxygens with AC units on top, but didn't know Bonair recommended against it. I thought about doing just that at one point.

Happy camping.

Hi, Carole.
An awning/screen room is something that my wife is keen on attaching to our 2002 Oxygen.
In your posting from last year about your awning, you shared a photo of yours on your Oxygen. You also spoke of additional photos showing how the awning was attached to your trailer. Would you share those photos again, as I cannot locate them on the thread?
Thank you.

What Are on Your Bumper of this Oxygen?

Hi, Antonius.
In your posting on the thread "Oxygen Awning", posting # 28, you shared four photos. One of them shows the back bumper with four "things" on each side of the license plate holder.
What are they?
Thank you.

Cheers.

Home made awning for Oxygen

My wife and I decided to make our own awning for our Oxygen trailer. The challenge for us was how do we attach it to our trailer without taking away from the look of the trailer. To accomplish this we decided there was no way around drilling holes in the roof. I purchased two marine pad eyes and attached them to the front and rear flat sections of the roof. I then purchased a couple of Velcro straps with grommets. The straps loop around the pad eyes and the grommets provide a place to attach a pole to the trailer. Then we purchased some Sunbrella marine fabric and got to work. To be honest, we've never taken on a sewing project like this, but hey, how hard could it be?

When the awning is not attached, the pad eyes are barely noticeable.

The awning takes about 5 to 10 minutes to set up. Version 1.0 had a sagging problem. Version 1.1 added a center support pole.

We will see soon how this performs while camping. Fingers crossed...

Pictures are better than words...

Very Nice Job Grimjed!

This is very nice, we like it!

My wife and I tought getting rid of the awful awning which was installed by the previous owner as it totally destroys the magnificent look of our Oxygen camper. See pic.

This is quite inspiring and simple, velcro and no holes!

We will follow your example.

Thanks for posting Grimjed!
