Some simple mods

Finally got around to two simple changes that have been in the garage for a bit.
We now have a beautiful sun to enhance "Seventy Degrees." It should bring a smile to those following us down the road.
Almost went with the teak shower floor pan, but when I heard it needed maintenance and a good bit of configuring to fit, I took a look at the dri-dek tiles at West Marine here. Loved them. No maintenance, easy to install in 10 minutes with a sharp pair of scissors, inexpensive, and a great solution for the shower floor. Thanks, Pat for the install tips and advice.....

Cover looks great! You will love the dri deck, last forever and makes clean up easy.

I have the same type of flooring in my bathroom and I really like it. Just make sure you remember to take out the drain screw before showering. Easy to forget when you can't see it easily.

Great addition on the tire cover. That's one of the things I'll be adding at some point. Yours definitely fits with the trailer name.

A floor in the bath will be a mod of mine very soon, as Momma don't like the cold floor in the middle of the night. Still thinking of using teak, the maintenance is minimal, and it is warmer. This stuff does look good, and would certainly be easier.

I too love the bright tire cover.

Like the mods Greg. Have you thought about just cutting out a small section around the drain? This looks like it could easily be done and allow for more handy access.

Hmmm, can always count on you to see solutions to things right in front of us. It is very easy to lift the mat corner to access the drain, but I like this idea. I'll live with it a trip or two and may do this.
