We have the 2008 ST27RB and I'd love to read about any and all mods you have made.

My son works in a sign shop and installed some "C" shaped lightweight metal to the underside of my garage (under the bed) so that we can slide an outdoor table in. This way it doesn't end up with all the other stuff on top of it. With the table in the garage we can't open the bed storage, but we don't usually open that anyway unless we are camping.

My son also fabricated and attached some nifty holders to my A frame to hold our stab bars when we are camping. I thought I had a picture of them to post but I don't. I'll try to get a photo soon if anyone wants one. The holders are awesome and we lock them together when we are camping, that way no one can walk off with one of our bars, and now they aren't sitting in the dirt while we camp.

I want to put shelves on one side of our bedroom closet, has anyone done that?

Here are photos showing the mod we did for storing our WD bars while camping and when it is in storage. My son did the work, but basically its a metal tube a little bigger than the curved end of the WD bar, welded to a metal plate that will fit on the A frame. My son drilled holes in the plate, then marked the A frame, drilled the holes, attached with bolts and then painted it.

When we are camping we secure the bars with a long lock through the chains on the end of the WD bars.

This is a close up of the aluminum bracket my son made for me that is attached in the garage of our trailer. We use a 4' x 2' table outside and it used to be stored with a bunch of stuff on top of it which made it hard to pull it out quickly when we are setting up camp because we have to pull a bunch of stuff off of it. Now we just slide it out when we get to the campground. Since our table is 4' long, the table prevents us from opening our bed to access the storage underneath it when the table is stored, but not when the table is set up. I'm including two photos:

This is a photo of our A frame with the WD bars attached to the front in the holders I posted about earlier.

This is a pull out shelf I got at Lowe's and installed it under the sink cabinet. I would have liked to install another, but the sink plumbing is in the way.

These are two Rubbermaid slide and stack baskets I installed in our pantry. They also fit perfectly!
