We have a 2003 Southwind 32V and want to use the laptop for GPS while traveling. The MH has the slideout work station in front of the passenger's seat. How should we secure the laptop so it doesn't become an un-guided missile?

Hello Monty & Maggie,

I have a 2005 Bounder and I just put a milk crate on the dog house, put a piece of that rubber non-slip shelf liner on it and put the laptop on it. I do secure the laptop with a short bungee cord around the keyboard. In a recent trip from Ohio to New Mexico, it didn't move a millimeter.

You could put a piece of the shelf liner on the workstation and use the bungee cord to prevent it from moving.

Bluewind,
what you need is a Jotto Desk. I have one in my 2004 Southwind to mount my laptop for GPS.

Being as you have a Workhorse chassis you can make a stand for about $20 that works great. For more info and pictures follow the link in my signature

Here is the completed table.

Try some heavy duty velcro on each corner. It fastens very tightly and should do the trick.

Our thanks to all. Many interesting ideas that we will have to explore. Has anyone tried using the existing slide out station provided by Fleetwood?

PS: Monty & Maggie say hello.
