bath mat

Some scraps left over from the carpet job make a nice bath mat- they are glued to a piece of 1/8" neoprene.

battery monitor

This is a prototype battery monitor (no affiliation)that a developer sent me for a road test- it reads voltage, per cent charge, and keeps track of low cycles. An LED will blink when the battery hits 55% capacity letting you know that it's ready for a charge. If the voltage drops below 50%, (low cycle) the LED remains on and the cycle entered into memory. It pulls only 28mA so I cut the plug off and hardwired it straight to the hot side of the battery. Now I can disconect the battery when hooked to shore power (always at home), run off the converter and let the battery rest. When I need a charge just close the disconnect and the converter will fill up the tank.

table clips

no more wobbly table. Casita sent me the clips used on the TV shelf. Seems to me that these should have been there to start with!

dinette table

Another recycle job. The large table left over from the bedboard project was trimmed down to make a 3 inch oversized small dinette table. The extra length makes quite a difference.

cup holders

There was room for some big cup holders from a surplus yard.

Impressive Phil! Everything looks so nice and is so functional in your trailer. I really like the battery level indicator, too.

Scamp 5th wheel

Thanks Nancy- it's fun to come up with cheap ideas for raw materials on hand. Now there is a considerable piece of big table left over plus the original 2x2 small dinette table. They might be cut to make a permanent counter for the galley (to replace the folder shown) and maybe a slide out coffee table from under the bed.

I sure am looking forward to the rally and seeing a Scamp 5th wheel up close......leery of the old two-foot-itis syndrome though:o

Aha! The hole for access to the electrical plug in the folding counter top appears to be off center!

See, see? That's why I leave my trailers stock ... factory fresh. I mean, I know all of you admire and are jealous of all Phil's wonderful modifications ... but an off-center electrical plug access hole?

Besides, doing all those modifications seem like work ... at least to me. ;)

(And Phil, you know I'm joking. You set the high-water mark for modifications!)

(If you get twofootitus, just figure out a way to modify your existing rig, adding two feet off the front or back. I have faith in you!)

Prediction

Phil will be the first to add a two foot slide-out to his small, molded fiberglass travel trailer.

Seriously, with all of the amazing work some of our members accomplish, this idea is not far-fetched...

In fact, Janifer might beat Phil to it!

My latest idea

Hey, I might even put a trunk on mine! It'd look like the rear engine comparment for the old VW bus.

Seriously: I took the spare tire off the back and I leave the back dinette made up like a bed all the time, so I am thinking about installing a rear access door and have a closed in space under the bed. Although the door would be permanent, the 'trunk' could be removed if I ever wanted to use the four person dinette.

VW rear hatch

rear hatches

Cool!

On second thought, I think I need a miniature rear hatch.
