Added heavy stuff after the 2006 weigh-in:
  1. 2nd 2" x 2" frame sistered below the original frame.
  2. swing-out double step
  3. 2nd set of cushions to make the King size bed foam 8" thick (was 4" thick)
  4. roof air conditioner with "heat strip"
  5. Closet shelves
  6. Drawers between Fridge & Entry Door
