Now we're really cooking ....
Couple of new mods to our Basecamp: A microwave/convection oven (see photos) and solutions to minor issues (1. securing the cushions with the benches in the up position while traveling with a motorcycle on board and 2. closing the steps from inside the trailer).
Had to build a "bridge" between left/right counter for the front "feet" of the microwave. Didn't want anything permanent - solved (see pics)! We've been making excellent use of the oven, and it runs just fine with the Honda 2000 generator or shore power. Microwave sits on the floor while under tow. Now we're really cooking ... and the oven actually adds counter space.
Velcro + 65" of nylon cord solved the falling cushions. Stitching the Velcro to the cord was somewhat painful because of the glue on the Velcro!
A tie-down proved to be a neat, never-in-the-way solution to closing the steps from inside (the doors are closed with a tug on the straps already there). One hook of the tie-down goes on the pole hanger just below the rivet and the other on the notch on the stair. Adding the tie-down also eliminated the possibility of the steps vibrating loose and hitting the ground while under tow - I was saved from this on the last trip by nothing but luck; stopped for gas, opened a door, and the stairs dropped!
