Spring 2011

Here is a picture from this morning of Ladybug on her pad waiting for the next opportunity to go camping. The sun is shining, the grass is growing, the plum tree is in blossom. Wonderful!

Ladybug at home spring 2011

Re: Spring 2011

This is the best I can do for now since Escape is still building it. Will be picking my 17B up the end of April & I'll have some more photos!

They are similar to these:

They fit nicely under the stabilizer jacks. I think we bought ours in the Walmart RV boutique.

Re: Spring 2011

I have similar pads.

You just have to remember to remove them before taking photos of the trailer. Those bright yellow, or orange pads stand out like a setting sun, but in all the wrong places.

I thought of painting mine dirt brown, but then I know I would leave them behind.

Glenn:

Have a heart! Our wheel chocks are bright green, our jack pads are bright yellow and we have bright orange levelling
blocks. The plum blossoms are pink. The grass is green. The sky is blue. Some campers wear blue jeans. Baglo

After sending this I mentioned the yellow pads to my wife. She agreed with you! She had insisted that I remove the bright red container we use for grey water, but I thought the pads were just fine. Live and learn! I guess colour sense does not come naturally to everyone...

Re: Spring 2011

We could just carry a few yards of burlap with us. I've used camp chopping blocks or firewood to disguise my orange leveling blocks in the past. Or you could just shovel dirt on top.

Some people are just into lots of colours?
Hippies, come to mind.
Your trailer and tree look good together:-)
I am borring as I just use a 2X4, under the stabilizers.
