Yet More Mods

The mods roll on. Today, Malcolm installed a couple of things that we had purchased at Camping World yesterday. First, step covers:

In the background, you can see one of the jacks we bought to see if the middle of the frame could be supported and reduce bounce in the middle of the trailer. Seems to do OK. The step covers really make the steps a lot nicer. Plus, when Malcolm is wearing his flip-flops, he won’t scrape the tops of his toes on the sharp undersides of the metal steps now.

Just aft of the steps and jack are the new X-chocks (one for each side) between the tires.

Those should help keep the rig from wanting to roll on unlevel ground and help to stabilize it just that much more. Not sure if we needed two of them, but felt it would be best anyway.

Finally, more changes inside to swap out the dark bronze hardware. Not cabinet hardware this trip, but door handles on the bathroom and bedroom doors. We found that standard home locksets work just fine on the thinner trailer doors.

Here is a before picture:

And the after picture:

Besides looking fancier, the handles are actually quite a bit sturdier feeling, as well. Just a couple more items to help make our trailer our own.
