Don: the eagle thing is one of those stick-on levels to help you level the trailer when you set up at a campsite. There is one on the front too, they were there when we bought the trailer. The level part is kind of fogged and hard to see. I think camping world has them. Mine need to be replaced. You can copy any of my ideas that you want, we just need to see if we can post more pictures of some of our modifications, we're sort of computer illiterate here.

Thinking about this for the floor. Easy to clean and seams really durable. Affordable too!

Hey Benjamin, we have a Michigan gathering planned next fall in Algonac, Mi. We had 26 (maybe more?) various FG campers attend this last September, and had such a good time, we're doing it again in September 2013. I'm another Michianian, and also have a UHaul.

I was looking at similar flooring. It's special order only in my area so I'd be interested in your thoughts if you go with it. Not being able to hold it and see a sample showing the seams makes me hesitant.

It is about a 1/4 inch thick and is very tough feeling. It is not the foam flooring people put in home gyms. It measures 2x2 and is about 3 bucks a piece. I am not sure of how well it cleans up but time will tell. It comes in all colors but I am sold on orange because it matches the outside so nice and should match my new cushions which are off being reworked and covered. I am gonna put my order in tomorrow so I will post pics

I use a Coleman tent fan and it brings in the fresh air just fine and was much cheaper. I was also in search of the center seam trim and found some today at a local marina. The guy sold me the 30 ft he had for 10 bucks. Woohoo I was excited. If anyone wants to show me how to post pics I will put some up. She is a work in progress. I will post pics as I go. I have some plans that I have not seen yet. The app is great I figured out how to post pics!
Welcome to the Form Benjamin.

Whoo hoo, Mary and Bob...so happy to finally see a picture of your UHaul...I am in Sacramento, Ca for ten days helping my sister and brother-law clean up their recently purchased 85 UHaul. Greg thinks I should become a used camper salesman. So far, have convinced my sister and good friend in Mn to each buy a Uhaul...if I keep this up, we can really have a big rally sometime...had a grand time at the Cherokee Rally meeting two other Uhaulers. Loved it when a UHaul came rolling into the Rally pulled by a Mini Cooper! A grand sight!! Anxious to meet you someday. Safe travels and congrats Mary on figuring out posting pics. Jane, rPaddy2 Fellow UHauler

Mr. Bob,
Your doing better than me! Thanks for the neat idea of the level. (I like thinking of it as the 'Phoenix Rising' as it typlifies many of our UHAULS!) I could not find it at camping world but bought a two pack at eBay!

I have been eyeballing the leveling. Now, maybe things will not roll off
my counter or table top !

Mrs. Jane,
Was great meeting you and Mr. Greg along with George and his wife!!!
Thanks for the comment about the 'grand sight'. That trip I put 2611 miles on the Mini and averaged 23.5 mpg which included the Blue Ridge Parkway and
up to Clingmans Dome in the Smoky Mountain Natl. Park. Loved every minute of it but suspect the area is full of snow now because of Sandy. We hit it just right! Sure hope to see you all, including your two new recruits, next year!

Yes, but I think you have to drive through Canada.
