After having issues posting photos here in the past im testing to see if this works

Our New AF990 was just no complete untill we mounted the deck.
This deck is 17 years old. And has been mounted on a Lance 881 and a Lance 992.. and with a few modifications fits great on the new camper..

I will post more later if this works.

Wow! That's really outstanding!
More! More! (Attachment point detail pics, how it looks folded up, etc!) [emoticon]

I like the idea of having a deck. Good place to let you get your shoes wiped off before entering or a halfway spot for when getting the dogs in/out.

*** Just noticed more pics are coming! Thanks!

AISURFFISH - congrats on the new camper! Awesome how you've moved the new deck from camper to camper to camper. It looks really nice. I wish I had the equipment to weld aluminum out on the road - I only carry a small FC90.

Kind of hijacking this thread here, but Bert the Welder, this is an old revision of our deck, with photos I already have uploaded. Pertinent notes below the photos.

.. the cables hanging off are dog tie-outs and Christmas lights, not part of the deck.

[image]

.. I removed the board running across, and added gussets to the frame corners...

[image]

.. Torklift Stow'N'Go steps - we have five now, instead of four.

I really like having the deck flush with the bumper and the accordion steps up to it. And at 3x6', it's narrow enough not to obstruct the lights or license plate, block the sewer hose access either down or folded, and can be laid down even with the Jeep attached for flat towing, for access to the camper.

That's awesome JS. That's the first "Take along Tailgate" I've seen! Very neat.

I eventually wired up the backup camera, cutting off the factory connectors and replacing them with BNC, and using a patch cable when the truck camper is on. Now we can keep an eye on the Jeep.

LOL!! That's even more awesome. I'd have never thought of that!.
