I usually start keeping track of available sites a week or so before I can make my reservation. Then start crossing them off on a daily basis. The night before, I start looking at the site pictures to narrow down my choice of sites to just a few. At 7:00:00 I hit the reserve button for the site I want. Sometimes you get lucky, sometimes you don't. I haven't been able to get a site at Kilbear for 3 years now.
Sleeping bags for us.
Singles for the kids with a sheet underneath to keep their toys contained, and a queen size sleeping bag for us.
When it's warm, I just use the 1 leg/1 arm air conditioner.
Now with the hard side, the kids still use their sleeping bags in the bunks, but we have converted to sheets and comforters since the comforter was included in the décor.
Great idea for a hybrid! :B I created a similar solution back when we owned a popup but because the underside of the bed platform was unfinished I just ran a length of nylon rope back and forth across the underside of the rear bed, creatjng 20' or more of dry hanging space for wet towels, bathingsuits, etc. The advantage was I could leave the rope in place when I pushed the bed in, no need to remove or store anything later.

That was several trailers ago and we've since moved on to a travel trailer that allows us to use this bumper mounted clothes rack which like yours is far more convenient than stringing rope between trees and keeps our laundry largely out of sight. ;)

That bumper mounted clothes line looks pretty neat. Did you make it? or is it an actual assembly you can purchase?
Since RV'ers got away from 12 volt TV's and generally use regular TV's and inverters some manufactures stopped putting 12 volt plugs into trailers. My toy hauler didn't come with any. Its an easy install where you can usually hook into an existing 12 volt light or switch wiring. I put one in the main living area using the wiring running to some under cabinet lights and another in the bedroom where I pulled power from the light switch. In both cases the trailer wiring is 10ga so its big enough to powder a 12 volt plug and a couple led lights. Depending on what you want to charge you might want to install a single or double USB plug instead of the standard 12 volt socket. I put a 12 volt socket in the living area but all it ever has plugged in is a USB adapter so when I did the bedroom I just put a double USB plug in. Have a couple of each might be a good idea.
yea it appears i dont have 1. great advice on the USB plugs, I will likely do something like that near the dinette, maybe a 12v on the outside. just seems weird there is no way to plug anything in when on battery power, i guess its mod time
the main reason i ask is i have a 12v tire inflator which ive had for my jeep, it has a 10ft cord. 10 feet not enough to reach the TT tires if I needed to add some air. So i suppose i should at least add a 12v outlet outside. Unless someone has a different suggestion?
I'm thinking od doing the same thing. My previous trailer had a 12V at the outside radio, my new one doesn't.
We are the proud owner of a new Freedom Express with wide spread axles. My old hybrid had normal axle spacing and I used Bal X-Chocks. Don't think they will fit the new trailer though. I know BAL has wider version of x-chocks that extend further but do they work just as well? Maybe I'll just go back the wedges. What do you guys use for chocking?
