It is kinda cumbersome to have to roll back the rear carpet to park
the toys.... plus I hated to cut holes in the new carpet to access the
tie downs.

I decided to cut the carpet at the back of the wheel well boxes and
use an aluminum carpet trim on the forward carpet edge. For another $10
I had the local upholstery shop bind the edge of the now rear removable
piece of carpet. Just roll it up and it fits just nice in the upper ceiling
shelf.

you know, that really has always been a pain taking that carpet in and out.
you have made yourself a nice 'garage' area.

sometimes we go with 3 or 4 bikes though, and then we would encroach upon the 'living room' area with the forward two bikes

speaking of dirty bikes, i just today started fiddling with the high pressure bike wash that is right near the outside shower. (i guess presumably it is good to put the high pressure wash outside ) I took the pressure hose out of its unlockable cabinet and tossed it into the inside of the trailer.
there is just something about having camped at Glamis for so long, that to me makes the thought of using a high pressure water hose to clean my bike, while I am dying of thirst and seeing mirages of hula dancers waving at me, as kinda wasteful. But I am intrigued and will check it out more one of these days. maybe i can put out my fire everynite with it.

Son of gun..... you made me get my butt out
of my comfortable chair and check it out. In my

it. Hummm.... another project

That looks fine for bikes and quads.

I just flip mine over in thirds and leave it laying down the center, then when I unload the car I just flip it back out and good to go.
