I was going to swap my white-painted rims for aluminum, but my buddy pointed out to me that you still have to maintain them or they won't be clean and shiny.
Darn.

I can't stand those cones on the floor if the table is removed but then you must have them to be able to use it if needed. Also never know in some rare case if the bed would have to be made up, so have to keep the table in the trailer.
No, I put the table in the truck back seat, just in case. Agreed that the 19' table is a little unwieldy and the 2 stooge tables are adequate, but if we are inside for a while the table goes back. As far as the cones, I thought of a wooden box than can be placed over them and provide a foot rest, if need be, still on my "roundtoit" list.

Thanks. I was thinking of the foot rest, too, as we have one that size. I also would think that your present setup could actually be used as a bed without replacing the table.

With batteries in under the bench, the table could probably even go in the front box, if necessary to carry.

There are fold-up TV tables that are a possibility. Trying to think of how to not carry that table and what alternatives might exist.

Maintenance on my wheels consists of a spray with Eagle1 A2Z, and rinsing off. Whew! I'm exhausted!

OK, this is what I'm turning in on the 1st of December. Please Lord, don't let there be any more changes.

Sorry about the formatting, it's two photos converted from ETI's pdf file.

You still have 2 weeks, plenty of time for changes.

The only thing I screwed up was the Horst tank probes, forgot about it till after the build started.

Good tip on the probes Padlin.

There is one other item not on the build sheet because ETI hasn't let us know if they'll install it yet. We'll let the forum know either way.
