Roy,

Fantastic ideas, and your cost conscious approach is fitting with the small egg environment. Thanks for sharing with us. This is what drew me to the "Egg World", all the respondents add to the fun of camping and the usefulness of our trailers. Thanks again, Fx.

towel rack

I'm impressed with the towel setup; it makes good use of hard-to-use space in top of cabinet, it's location is handy and it shouldn't unroll while underway!:)

Pete and Rats

PS TP and paper towel unrolling tip; squeeze that darn Charmin until the cardboard tube is no longer round!

Is this a 16' SD model?

And besides the stuff attached using succion cups, how
would you otherwise attach stuff to fiberglass body?

attaching to fiberglass

:wave yes suction cups do come loose,use a cleaner before attaching,also velco tape is good.the first repair i made was to replace the plastic p trap under the shower with a rubber p trap,the first casita with a rubber p trap i think,at least casita didn't know they were available. I also use peices foam rubber to stuff between items,like the tv in the picture # 20 has foam to hold tv in place while rolling.:inbox isn,t this a great site:wave

Door window

At the Lake Casitas rally, I saw somebody (sorry, forgot who) who had replaced the frosted glass with "one way" reflective glass. It's not great for night time, when you would need to hang a shade, but during the day, you can't see in.

Honda generator mounting

Roy, what a unique way to mount the Honda generator! I want to duplicate what you have done.
How did you fasten the generator to the base?
I have taken my generator feet off and I cannot see how you mounted yours to the base.
Can you actually run the generator while traveling?

Great images!
Thanks for your time.
Dave U.

generator mount

Roys Honda generator mount is interesting, but I have my doubts as to whether it'll survive a road like (Arkansas) I-40, Louisana I-10 or a detour we had to take in Colorado, intact.

But then, you may know how I am about bike racks, just a fuddy-duddy. :)

Generator mount

It's a neat concept, but I wonder about what it sounds and feels like when it's running and you are in the trailer. My 2000 does a bit of vibrating on its little rubber feet and I wouldn't want to have to listen to and feel that while I was inside. How does it sound/feel, Roy?

honda mounting

:wave The only thing I don't like about the honda setup is storing the gas on board and how easy it is to overfill the gas tank,noise and viberation hasn't been a concern or has it been a problem. GO ahead and mount it and check it out.(cost 10.$)You may be pleasently surprised.:zz When you put longer 6mm bolts thru the rubber pads,use a jam nut to hold the rubber feet to the honda base(will keep bolts from viberating loose)you can drill small holes thru the bolts and pull a wire thru the 4 bolts to prevent bolts from coming loose also:cheers .Just be careful when threading the new longer 6mm bolts with jam nuts into the honda threads. honda 6mm nuts held in place with plastic clips.:banana

honda genertator mounting

:wave this shows where the 3/8 hanger nuts(extra long) are used to hold the lp tank bracket and how the hanger nut gives you a place to drop thru a 3/8 bolt to secure the honda mounting base and still get to lp valves.:hap2 <img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3e875684186d9base bolts.JPG/> base could be a little wider,notice the honda is allowed to rest on the base.that allows the generator rubber feet to absorb the viberation.:wine
