A half sheet of 3/4 inch thick plywood and a piece of 1 and 1/4 aluminun angle. We are going camping with a 15 month old and my basement model Pace Arrow has a deep stepwell. Made a cover to go over the stepwell

Early Christmas

Like an earlier post, I replaced my KingDome with a Winegard Trav'ler dish. Much faster acquisition, stronger signal. I just have to remember to put it down before disconnecting the power (or I have to run the generator), which I didn't even think about with the dome.

We also bought a pair of ottomans from Winnebago that match our color scheme.

Sorry, kids, the Christmas budget is exhausted!

The insurance company bought me a new windshield.

I Will take a closer look. They might be very effective at keeping sand and dirt outside when near beaches or trees. Thanks

They do look interesting but they show nothing other than sand that will go thru the material and they do say only dry sand. I seem to have more crap from trees than I do sand. If you spend the bulk of your time at beaches, they may be perfect!

I find the standard poly weave mats that are available the easiest to use. Nothing gets trapped, water and sand work through it and it's easily broomed clean. I actually carry a small battery powered leaf blower with me and it keeps my 9x18 mat clean, blows off my canopies and also helps with starting the campfire!

We also carry a battery powered leaf blower for exactly the same reasons.

The best kindling I have found so far for the campfire start is a 100,000 BTU tiger torch.
In tests it has started two or three roaring forest fires and a couple of garages.
Great value.

Everything beyond tiger torch I just made up so please don't get yer knickers in a knot.
