Showoff!!

Number 1, nobody has any compartment that is really THAT neat!

Number 2, nobody has a compartment with that much free empty space.

Number 3, I carry alot of stuff that I frequently wonder "why am I lugging this extra weight around"?

Number 4, PeterH-79MH carries a NAPA store.

Gee, thanks

I hardly see my husband as it is. Now he is going to be up all night tonight straightening bins and lining them with plastic matting.

Hmmmph...

Having been accustomed to a Class C with almost no storage and having weight constraints we carry the minimal--some storage compartments are empty.

I carry a hydraulic jack, plastic leveling blocks, plastic chocks, patio mat, extra sewer hoses, fresh water hoses, a + wheel wrench and "her" tools in pink case of course.

John,

Please come organize my garage for me!

My Bambi only has one outside bin in which I carry firewood, Coleman Lantern, Toolbox, Levelers, Axe, Toilet Chemical, Hose, Stabilizer Jacks Crank, Coleman Stove, Small Barbecue, Rope, Duct Tape, Gloves. The storage area is under most of the corner bed in my Bambi, so has pretty good amount of room, but is a challenge for a guy my size to get way back into, lucky my wife is a small lady for the tough ones!

Hi John

Hey there! I'm fine. You haven't heard from me because of my husband. He made me go back to work so I can help pay for his addiction.

Something about Fan-Tastic fans, gas cooktops, furnaces, carpeting, wood flooring, and an $8,000 paint job. And of course that's just for starters...

So I'm no longer a lady of leisure.

Talking I must defend myself...........

I am fine with the Argosy, yes it needs paint, but have you any idea how long it takes to paint one of these suckers with the little brush they put in the paint at the parts store?

So I want to pay someone else to do it........is that wrong?

John, you have given me a brand new goal (not like I don't have enough of them already) To get my bins clean, POR -15 them and get them matted to allow for proper evaporation of water that might just leak in .

Where did you get the mat?

Don't be an enabler...

DON'T ANSWER HIM!!!

Yes, we do have 2 computers. We are sitting about 4 feet away from each other.

He doesn't NEED matting. He really doesn't. You'd just be feeding his addiction.

mat

brett

the mat is surplus from work. it comes in about 12" squares and can be cut to size.

i believe sears has it for lining tool boxes. it is nice because it allows air under items to dry the bin out, as you pointed out.

what? edie won't paint?

Yes, and she does a great job on her nails using a small brush, but the surface area she is used to is an order of magnitude different when it comes to the Argosy

NO, of course not. We use Yahoo! Instant Messenger. And sometimes Fred Hinds joins us.

(Brett hasn't set up separate email on his laptop, yet!)

My bin

I have just one outside storage which is about 2/3 of the double bed in size. I carry:
grass patio mat
small BBQ grill in a bag
match-light charcoal
2 folding chairs
1 small folding table
25' curly water hose with regulator
old shower curtain for getting under if it is muddy

The only bad thing about the storage is the small opening. The long folding chair bags must be maneuvered in very carefully. This severely limits how much will fit in there.

Everything else goes under the lockable bed cover in the truck or under the back seat of the truck. The truck back seat is well organized with:
paper towel roll
hand cleaner
throwaway plastic gloves
towing mirrors when not actually towing
fitted 150+ piece toolkit
12v compressor
tire gage
inverter when not in use
electrical kit with tape, splices, crimping tool

The truck bed has two plastic baskets that hold chocks, blocks, hoses, 4-way lug wrench, and power cables. For long trips, I bungee an additional toolbox to one of the bed tiedowns with some larger tools and a variety of small parts such as screws, bolts, and nuts.

Bins

Hi John,
In the curbside bin I carry the stabilizer crank, plastic leveling blocks, one tire locking chock (need to buy one more), heavy chain for locking 40 lb. alum. tanks together but never do, and one 5 ft. piece of copper pipe for repair to water line (came with trailer). The roadside bin contains four 2X6X12" pieces of lumber for quick leveling blocks, one 25 ft. grey hose for flushing tanks and one 25 ft. 5/8" water hose with regulator on the end. I have a FlushKing inside the trailer that I have not used yet along with an adapter and a 45 degree clear sewer connection. First time I use these, they will probably go into the roadside bin and the 25 ft. water hose will be moved to the curbside bin so there isn't a chance of contamination. Plastic bins under the single twin curbside bed are empty, the long bin over the bed had one ultralight spinning reel/rod and one reel/rod for bass fishing, stripe, stuff like that. Other plastic bins across the bed are full of sheets, hunting socks, thermal underwear, etc. That's about it other than the kitchen which has two plastic drawers full of electrical wire/parts, water and gas plumbing fixtures/parts and last one drawer full of rivets and a rivet gun mixed in with several bottles of deer scent.
