We just got our 84 Uhaul and noticed that the door seal on the ice box does not seal properly on the latch side.

There is a "bump" on the inside facing that appears to be to accomodate the latch. This bump holds the seal off from contacting the rest of the facing.

The seal seems to be stock and we are wondering what the deal is. Could it be designed that way?????

Also I would like some advice on attaching an awning to the Uhaul. All the surfaces are curved, how do you fit the awning to that? Wouldn't the awning mount have to be straight?

We use a First Up (or Easy UP - whatever Walmart sells). We prop it against our UHaul, leaving the UHaul side screening tied out of the way. For us, it works better than an awning. It stops the bugs and gives us more living space. We bought sides from Hutshop and let those down when it is windy or raining. We rarely camp without setting it up, just because of the additional space for reading, exercising, or partying with fiberglass friends. Makes a great place to share a few wines.


PS: On the icebox, I cannot help much as we use an electric refrigerator (whose door comes loose when we drive). However, a previous owner added a child's lock to hold it closed when we drive. We added a child's bar kind of lock too to keep it closed. The hubby adds bungy cord. (It holds it closed riding, but as soon as I take the cord off, the door falls off, so he has to put the door back on.
