How about a 2"x10" or 12" with a piece of 2"x4" screwed crossways onto the end of the ramp to make the inclined plane...from wood scraps (check a building site scrap pile). Then we put another suitable chock (either wood or metal) behind the opposing tire to prevent it rolling back ... has been working that way for us for the last 20 years! Total cost ... under $15 depending on whether you have the opposing "chock" built of wood or metal...might break $20 for today's prices for materials.

Paper Towel Dispenser / Holder

For us, it is ideal ...by Simply Human from Bed Bath & Beyond. We have looked for the last 5 years and, finally ...
Superb quality in keeping with the AS materials and interior design as well.

How about a shelf for DW side of the bed ...

Busy weekend for us and a happy wife - happy life / spouse unit!

Since AS did not install a mag rack when out new EB was built ...a project was born; aluminum edging (to prevent her items such as TV controller, cell phone, lip gloss from rolling off) on a fabricated rectangular plastic shelf with extra angle aluminum support hidden behind the factory magazine rack lower edge. It is through bolted into the closet to make a very nice rigid shelf...even room for her mug on the shelf.

Don't ask how long it took to fab and install ...but well worth the effort.
She knows how much I <3 her !!! This is as unique as she is.

Already do! Only problem I am having is the big box blocks my rearview camera...blocks my view of the tongue and ball mount. I'm hoping I can scab some wire onto the camera\sensers, so I can see how close I am. On that note, I did some damage to my garage door yesterday while backing close to it (too close) Hopefully I can reposition the camera and sensors. I would love to be able to see exactly where I am, drive under the ball and hit the remote to lower the tongue onto the ball. That would be cool.

Here is an other option for your morning coffee mug. It is a shelf that I purchased from IKEA, cut in half, and then bolted to the wall. Jim
