Where would you mount a fire extinguisher, and why? The door is in the rear, then the stove/sink, then the bed/dinette in the front.

I know i would mount it close to the door.If your outside and a fire starts you can get to it with out going into trailer,if fire extinguisher is inside at the back you may not be able to get to it.If you are inside trailer you may want to get out first then fight fire.At least i would.

I would also mount it by the door, as that also seems to be the most likely proximity of a fire to start anyway, as the cooking facilitres are right there. An extiguisher will do you little good if you can't get to it!

First time my family experienced a stove fire, my wife had some baking soda 'handy' to sprinkle on a flame -- Problem was, it was on the other side of the fire I ran out and got a fire extinguisher from the boat and later installed one right by the back door; I want to be standing outside or on my way out when I get the fire-fighting tools so I have choices!

Why not install one in both places? Better safe than sorry.
