Used a stick of 3/8" threaded rod that was laying around here for the hold-downs

Dunno how I lost track of this thread, but I did! Just read through to get back up to speed and naturally I'm here with a little day-late-dollar-short words of wisdom...

I'm thinkin' that the sway problems you had in your earlier trip were likely caused by low tongue weight- nothin' on the tongue combined with brand new foam mattress in the back spells too much weight behind the axles to me. I see you're adding some weight back to the tongue, which should help, but do take care with what you put on the back bumper lest you find yourself running too light a tongue again.

Thanks for the tips! I think on this particular voyage I'll only have our old Huffy beach cruisers out back. What with the battery, propane, and fridge ahead of the axle I may be looking for some tail weight. No worries, tbere's always a carload of backpacks, totes, satchels, duffels...Plenty of easily shifted ballast :-)

I think the front panels are meant to be user installed, to match their decor. All of mine have some wood paneling on the door.

Just clowning around. I couldn't see shelling out for a storebought panel when I have multiple scrap options laying about. This one is just a piece of trailer 'skin'. Custom graphics (sharpie) applied to peel-off protective plastic membrane.

I'll let the interior desecrator choose the funky 70's color.

Tell her from me that this spot just screams "shag rug". What could be more '70's than that?

Plus the "added insulation for the fridge" factor should appeal to your practical soul...

Got the door re-hung with new hinges last night. Most of the holes in the jamb side were iffy, and a couple in the door too. Click image for larger version

I filled the holes with epoxy and let it cure for a few days, then redrilled and used new stainless screws. The fit is much better but not perfect. There's a good half inch of body sag across the opening.

Also, i need some Bargman guidance. The latch seems to work OK, but the inside lock handle looks to be missingClick image for larger version

Can anyone show me what's missing from the lock? I extracted a broken screw from the back of the lock cylinder but don't know what the missing piece or pieces looked like. For clarification, with the lock assembled to the door, there's just a hole where the locking knob should be. Taken apart, what you see is what I got.

I'm also missing the key, should be a 251.

Glen, I have a brand new spare Bargman L300. This weekend I will try to post pictures of it.

What do you mean by a 1/2" of body sag. Any way to get pictures?

If by "body sag" you refer to the fact that the left edge belly band doesn't match up with the one on the door:

You've just discovered the World Famous Signature Mark of the Trillium mold!

Every generation/descendant carries that mark, though it's more conspicuous on some than others.
