Been meaning to post these for a long time. The padded stepladder made life a lot nicer! The King took some foam pipe insulation that he slid around the steps and secured with zip ties. Sweeeeet!



Next, we cut the carpet from wall to wall right behind the wheel wells and had the raw edges bound at a local carpet dealer. It's a lot easier to roll up now and we can have just the front carpet down if toys are in the back or roll both sections up if we need to use the entire tie-down space. We lash down the rolled carpet sections under the bay windows.

I remember these! , Sandy! I especially like the carpet one- I think they outta do THAT one at the factory- such a pain to roll up the entire slab of it when you don't need to- and you can't get to the tiedowns if you don't.

Hey...thanks for sharing...c'mon around more often, ya hear?

Sean

Sandy,

I like the rug mod! Rolling that carpet is a major pain...
But do you find that the carpet slides around in th back half when its down?

Never slides at all. I think the roughness of the floor keeps it in place, if not simply the weight of it. Then again, we don't have any little kids thrashing around the rig either.

And Sean...I'll try to pop my head in here a little more often!

I'm thinking mine would slide around a lot as I have lino rather that the textured wood floor. Darn... looks like a great idea!

If anyone with lino does this mod... lemme know how it turns out!

You could always lay down a square of that rubbery mesh stuff that they sell to keep rugs from sliding. Just roll it up with the rug. It's pretty thin. Just a thought.
