Hello, I have a 84 13' ct uhaul camper. I am missing all of the liners. I was wondering if anyone has lined the areas with anything and if so with what and how. Also Has anyone mounted a tv anywhere in the camper? The walls are thin not sure they would hold any ideas would be helpful. Thanks Steph

For now, I just use plastic bins in the storage compartments. Works fine.

As far as mounting the TV, If you pick a wall that you can get to the other side of, such as the upper cabinet or the closet, you can reinforce the mount from the back.

While we have a 16' UHaul, I thought that I might add here that we use a 19" TV on a mount that we take off during travel. We used to use a small undermount TV, but we often like to watch DVD's in the evenings and just could not see the small TV well enough.

We have noticed that our 84 CT has a lot more storage space without the liners. Not as pretty inside the lockers, but a whole lot more useful.

I went ahead and lined the cabinets and closet with reflex looks much nicer. The tv problem...I thought I would just set it on the covered sink but a glare if in bed. Turns out the tv is light enough to hang on the bed wall with two suction cup hangers. It stayed securly for the two hour trial and had to pull suction cups still stuck to the wall off.

Hi: I have a similar problem, no liners. please- What is "reflex"? It may make my unit alittle more pleasant.

I believe she was referring to Reflectix Inc. | The World’s Largest Manufacturer of Reflective Insulation and Radiant Barrier Products

Here is where I mounted my 22 in tv/dvd in my ct-13. You can see on the inside I used two metal brackets to reinforce the back, they were just some scrap bracket pieces from something I found in the garage.

Some simple mods to my CT-13 - Pic heavy

And Mike, here's what that Reflectix looks like as a liner.

I built an entertainment center for the TV, DVD & satellite box. The dinette is a permanent bed so I mounted it in the streetside rear corner. Attaching it to the window frames with "L" brackets. I also used some aluminum stock as a brace from the lower cabinet up under the shelf.

I put reflectix up on the vertical components (including the wall/ceiling of the kitchen cabinets over the stove and my closet). You can put shelf liners on the bottom of the cabinets, or carpeting, or even wood shelving will give you a smooth clean surface. I thought I wanted liners until I actually saw them installed in a trailer. You lose a LOT of storage space with them.

hi Steph,

We mounted our TV and DVD player on the underside of the cupboard over the kitchen counter. On the Boler, I used a piece of shelf bracket anchored from the centre metal post to a window frame to support the bottom so it did not jiggle around while driving. No holes in the trailer wall. The position was excellent and gave a good view from both the front and rear bunks. On our new trailer, we have installed the same arrangement in the same location, which also works great. Pictures are on this thread in the 4th post: http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f56/reno-s-gone-wild-exterior-access-doors-42298.html

Later,
Rick G
