Any thought about including a set of backup lights. Would fit great between the upper and lower tail lights.

Bap, funny how things work out, go looking for something and come home with something else (or more). HH, right now we don't need curtains, NO WINDOWS, LOL, seriously we haven't even thought of them. All in good time. Gordon, I just happened on those lights, they fit perfectly on the sides, I'll post a pic where they are going and you'll see what I mean. I have to build a bumper after I get the ramp done and I think thats where the back ups are going, I believe in "real" backup lights so you can actually see to back up. plus I need a place to put the license plate and their lights. Raining again this AM but supposed to clear up. Gordon hows your warrenty work going? really hope your out of there.

Still here, today should be done. Had a leveler leak and the system needed to be bled. Tech was not happy so called the Lippert rep. They are replacing all 4 jacks even as we speak. They say about 1.5 hours per jack. Hope to be on the road this afternoon or tomorrow latest.

Our stacker has tail lights very similar to yours. Two on each side with a backup in the middle. The amount of light they give is quite acceptable. Being up a bit it covers a good amount of area.

I have seen those stackers,very nice. sorry to hear your still in the shop. My mounting area is very narrow 1.5", as I wanted as wide a door as I could, being this was an early trailer it's not as wide as they are now.

Bap and Harley,

Post a pic of the TT Bap and Harley, have you thought about doing a box frame around windows and putting the curtain material on that instead, or some fake leather material in black or orange? It keeps the light around the window from leaking through because it is solid and you can do one side black and the other orange or any way you want. staple the material to the wood and install. Then shades at window.

23 pages, WOW, Lynne

Lynne, I never thought that this thread would go this far, lots of nice people here and very informative to boot! Eleanor has thought of putting (those things that I can't think of their name right now things) on the windows, we have seen them in other rv's that we have looked at. Gordon here is a pic of the mounting area (or lack there of). I like the idea of having a light both up high and down low so all the vehicles behind me can see what I'm doing, not just the car right behind.

Harley1994,
I agree with you on the high and low lights. Those lights look fantastic, and they should do you a very good job. A couple of suggestions to go along, check the DOT regulations, as they apply to all vehicles that are 8' wide. Also on the side clearance lights, put one on either side, above, right in front or right behind the axles where you can see them in your mirrors. That way you can tell where the trailer wheels are when you are towing in the dark. Another suggestion is to have turn signals on the sides, so the people around you know when you are trying to change lanes.
Frank

Frank, thanks! I've followed trailers that had those lights high and low and it gets your attention, plus at night or fog you can't have enough lights. I just happened into a farm store here locally and they had one, it looked like it would work so I bought it, then I went on line and found them on Ebay and bought three more, (for half the price). I will be buying the clearance lights from the same Co. LEDs also. I got the frame painted now wait to install......I dislike waiting for paint to dry!!

Harley, are you doing something on the rear door to strengthen it up for using as a ramp for the bikes? There's no support bars in the center of the ramp door to handle any weight.
I'm not seeing your genius with the painted framework, which I'm taking as being the rear door/ramp.

What your seeing is the frame that bolts into the TH's rear section. when that is in, the ramp (not made yet) will slide into the frame section, and of course be bolted to the frame and the ramp thru the hinge assembly. I wanted everything to be removable for any unforseen repairs that might need to done (backing into/getting run into, that type of thing) .
