Hello; New Bambi girl on the block. I have a question regarding the lug nuts. Any idea what size they are? I am interested in replacing them with the locking lug nut (bolts).

Also, what do most people use in securing their AS? I have researched coupler locks, wheel boots, receiver locks. Can someone recommend what works best with the Bambi trailer? Now that I have it, I don't want it ripped from under me.

Half inch. I bought something called a TrailerKeeper, which is like a boot. IT stinks. IT is very hard to attach; the wheel and lugs must be at an exact position (like 9:36), then you have to remove a lug, put their locking lug on, then remove all this before towing again. It practically will fit only on one side. Oh yes, and its expensive.

Sheets of different sizes, style,color, etc, I believe are now available thru the A/S online store. But then who uses sheets? Up north we just cut pine boughs. After a good nights sleep you feel kinda sticky, but you smell nice.

How about a mattress sack??

For all you handy dandy types I think you could probably take a full size sheet and fold it in half, sew it so you can slip it over the whole mattress and put a draw string on one end, preferably the foot end there you'd have it...something that the ends wouldn't be slipping out from under you all the time. A really simple idea thought maybe someone could use......

We have simliar issues w/ our argosy bed - rounded corners. Penneys house brand of high thread count sheets has elastic all the way around the head and foot. They stay put! We use a set of full size sheets even though the bed isn't quite.....
