Great picture and thanks for the info. We've only camped one night in PA on our way up to New England and I'm not familiar with hardly anything PA related. We camped at Lackawanna State Park (there's a cute video from there on our YouTube channel .... the Ranger Trainee was so very cute and friendly)

DW is Darling Wife. DH is husband. I am not sure how those abbreviations came to be so prevalent on all of the RV forums, but there it is. I have also seen BIL (brother in law), SIL, MIL, and so forth. DD as Darling Daughter, etc.

Kiwi, here's an example of how to embed a pic in your post...just make sure the picture isn't HUGE or it will run totally off a person's screen and cause them to not be able to see the entire picture at once.

The IMG codes must be at the beginning of the online location of the picture file and at the end (NOTICE the "/" on the ending code). In between the two img codes, place the location (from Facebook, or twitter, or Tumblr - any online hosting site) of your pic.

You can either click on the Img box highlighted by the top arrow, and then click on the Close Tags below that, OR you can just type the codes in yourself.

[/img]

Hope this helps a little.

Michelle, that is a very helpful screen shot -- well done! If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a picture about how to post a picture should be worth a million words, right?

Good job, Kurt! Great shot!

I am in love with the box on your tongue...did you have that custom made? Gosh, I really like it a lot.

Michelle, that's not a tongue box -- that's a spare bedroom for a small child! Very cool.

...a small child, or better yet - a pesky little dog!

Seriously, is that something you'd buy to put in the bed of a pickup truck?

Lol..yes, that's what I thought when caravan arrived! they (there's a small one on the back too) were custom made by previous owner - are very well made & surprisingly light yet robust, too.. we'll certainly have enough gear to fill those with our Family! have taken back box off tho atm, to sort out mounting a 4x mtn bike "north shore" rack system..in the planning.

Well, dang, now I really want one for the back! (I don't have a lot of available tongue weight left on my little truck...)

Where would one have something like that made?

Visit any well stocked farm & home store and you will find something much like that.

However, should you require a 'custom size', any qualified welding shop that welds aluminum can construct one to your specifications ~ perhaps using diamond plate aluminum sheeting or ?

The other issue is making sure that the back of the trailer and its frame can support the extra weight of the box -- my little Fun Finder has no back bumper, and there is no way (for example) to attach a rear bike rack.

Also, loading a box like that in addition to the weight of the box materials itself will greatly reduce tongue weight since it sits so far to rear of the axle. Reduced tongue weight can be a real issue as we've recently read about in the Tow Vehicle threads

And back on topic .... Pictures of Fun Finders finding fun

Just got to the Branson KOA where we're attending a "Work Kamper's Boot Kamp" where we'll get a crash course on KOA's software system and procedures to work in KOAs. We'll also be attending a Job Fair and meeting owners who are looking for help to run their campgrounds in various seasons. We've already accepted a position to spend 4.5 months this spring and summer up at Lake Tahoe KOA and we're looking for a warm place to spend next winter

In any case, here we are ......

Hi guys, just a wee pic to show how ours was fitted..as I said before - our caravan was sold to us with these boxes, instead of the gas bottle covers on front. re; rear box-it has a square tubing that fits well inside the chassie frame tubing, then bolted in place, (see red arrows) so we will probably use this to mount a bike rack instead. so far, has towed well as is.

Hi All,

Hitched up the new 2014 215WSK at the dealer on Thursday and brought the 100 miles home.
