I agree with Jon. I put them on my '06 Tacoma and am very happy with the result. Also, they're plug-n-play -- install them and you're done.

MacKerricher State Park in Ft. Bragg on Hwy 1. Great place, busy on weekends, get your rezzies now. Campsites in the 80s-90s on the beach side are the best. And only 6 mi. from Mendocino.

Easy fix

I picked up a pack of baby bumpers at Babies R Us after a couple of similar head whacks. Easy install, visually unobtrusive.

I did a trip in 2013 which ended at the factory and had the front box retrofitted. Took a day and cost $850 then. I've been so happy ever since that I did it.

I've been in contact with Airxcel. The cover, like the rest of the unit, only has a 2 year warranty. I'm sticking with my plan A, gel superglue and paint.

I travel with a Baby Martin in a hard case. It stays on the bed of our 19 during the day and goes into the truck's cab at night. I haven't found any better way to deal with it.
