When(we think it was) a bobcat clawed his way up onto my spare tire one night when camped in Globe, AZ last year he ripped up my tire cover pretty good. Never got around to replacing the cover, maybe because I kind of liked the look of that bare tire. That was until yesterday, when I remembered them baby moons I held onto after selling the Scamp. They won’t work on an Escape wheel, so how to attach one? We shall see if it stays put next road trip.

Can't find a pic of it right now but saw someone had made a round fire grate that would fit over their spare tire for storage and travel. Stylish and functional.

It has long been clear to me the street side rear corner of the bed has big problems. During late into the night necessaries, not only does he who must sleep there have to climb over she who does not (a task never taken lightly,) but when the lights go out, the corner person also has no storage place for reading glasses, books, schooners, remotes, etc., to rest.

Half the problem is now solved.

Toughest part was finding a way to employ my traditional approach ... make it reversible, do no harm to the trailer. The shelf thing is held in place with two screws, one up into the cabinet, and one through a drilled hole in the bottom window frame corner spool bracket. The wood is cedar left over from some other abandoned project. The painted backing is 1/8” hardboard.

Myron you have outdone yourself again ! You are so right about a problem with the outside corner needing something for who ever gets to sleep there . I made a little cubby and attached under cabinet at feet . But you went to the tenth degree ! Very nice ! Pat

Could paint one of these brown with Krylon Fusion spray paint... bottom is 10x7, 3 inches high. Made of vacuum formed ABS plastic, tape or screw mount.

I know Charlie but I wanted wood . I do like what you made for my slide though . Here are a few pics of latest changes . I also removed the little shelf Escape made and made a a larger one . I do have the formica material but I like the wood . I ordered those Z clips and want to make a extension in front of the sink for more counter . Don't tell Myron but may steal his mod. Shh ! Pat

The one thing about mine I didn't account for is the slight pitch of the back wall means the two 3" deep shelves are pitched down. Might be a problem for any liquids not in a can. I might decide to steal from you, Pat, and add a third shelf at the top end that extends across the corner over to the reading light.
