2012 Top Mod Contest Part 2

2009 Chevy Silverado 3500 dually
2010 Arctic Fox 1140


“How many times have we misplaced our TV/Satellite/DVD remote controls?  I made this simple remote control holder and placed it on the wall between the cabover and the galley.  Now no matter where I am in the camper, I can get the remote that I need.  Its depth accommodates all three remotes, yet is still tight enough to the wall so that it does not to interfere with the slide-out operation.” – Kerry Stark


Bob Meigs
2011 Dodge Ram 1500
2012 Four Wheel Camper Raven


“Here’s a simple mod I made for my Four Wheel Camper Raven.  I noticed that my sink was draining really slow in my new Raven so I made a vented pipe to remove the vapor lock while it’s draining into the water bag.  All of the parts were less than ten dollars.  It’s just some PVC pipe, a Tee fitting, a male threaded fitting and a female threaded fitting (all PVC).  You can see from the photo I have an open section above the tee that allows air to enter that vent.  Now my sink drains really fast.  I store the pipe in my camper while traveling.” – Bob Meigs


Jake and Sylvie Mathis, Texas
1994 Dodge Ram 2500
2004 Northern Light 9Q Classic


“We didn’t have shelves in our camper when we bought it, so we had to be creative and made some modifications.  Visiting one of our local home improvement stores, we purchased closet system shelves using an open frame rack.” – Jake and Sylvie Mathis


Dennis Thorell, New Hampshire
2010 Chevy 3500 Dually
2009 Northern Lite 10’2″ CD Special Edition


“I own a Northern Lite 10’2″ CD and put spring loaded hinges on the pajama lockers as you recommended.  It’s a must do modification.  I can now use one hand instead of two to gain access to the lockers and the lid doesn’t fall on my hand.  Campers aren’t always parked level.  What if a young child, think little fingers, was in the bedroom area with the locker hatch up and the hatch lid fell down?” – Dennis Thorell


Art and Mabel Davidson, New York
2007 Chevrolet 3500 Dually
2003 Bigfoot 30c10.11SL


“I use centering blocks for easier loading of the camper and it keeps the camper from shifting while traveling.  I made the blocks from some scrap wood and covered them with carpet.” – Art and Mabel Davidson


Paul and Marceil Gathany, Ohio
2009 Chevy Silverado 1500
2008 Sun Lite 865-SE
