Over the last month I have admittedly been a bit preoccupied with a big project: Roaming with Rocky. This is our documentation of driving our T@B from the northernmost point in Alaska, all the way through Mexico. While this project has been consuming the lion’s share of my energy, fear not! I will not let the Mandy Lea Photo Blog suffer!
I have been shooting a lot of photographs, taking tons of video, and collecting content to share about my photography. But first – here’s one more about trailers!
Two of my most popular videos have been those featuring YOU and YOUR amazing ideas for trailers. First with “23 Quick Ideas for your T@G or T@B” and then followed up with “26 More Quick Ideas for your T@B Trailer“, I now bring you my 3rd quick tip masterpiece featuring none other than the beautiful YOU.
Here are those tips again, along with some useful links:
#1: Larger tongue Box Make sure to measure your specific space (and account for opening the lid!). The box we settled on is the Lund 60″ Toolbox. #2: Dual 6V AGM Batteries Running Dual 6V AGM Batteries will provide more amperage than the standard 12V. #3: Dual Propane Tanks If you boondock a lot or run your heater often, a 2nd propane tank is a great addition. Secure it with a Propane Cylinder Rack, and use a Y-Splitter. #4: Extra Fresh Water Tank They don’t sell a specific mod for this, so you’ll have to research it a bit. Contact nüCamp service with specific questions. #5: Hook & Eye Latch A simple solution to an annoying problem! This is the type I bought. #6: Cargo Net Hooks I used rubber coated ceiling hooks and drilled into the aluminum frame (not through it) to make sure they would not pull out of the ceiling. #7: Custom Colors Contact nüCamp or your local dealer to learn more about custom orders. #8: Custom Awnings This awning was made by Doty Hill Designs – check them out! #9: Bluetooth Generator Featured in this video is the Ryobi Bluetooth 2300W Generator. #10: Additional Toolbox If you don’t want to replace the original LP cover, there are many trailer frame toolboxes that will fit in addition. Be sure to measure! #11: Tongue Box Lock We all keep valuable things in our Toolbox, Add a lock! #12: Light Cover Cut this 3M adhesive red transparency tape to cover your light so it doesn’t blind you! #13: Additional Coax Cable If you’ve got the handyman bug, use a Coax wall plate and wire a new outlet! #14: Water Splitter An easy add on! Buy a Y-Splitter for your water, and add a handy spigot if you like. #15: Folding Bike Featured in this video is a EuroMini 8 speed bike. #16: Bike Rack Check out my full bike rack blog for links and a video about this setup! #17: Bathroom Heat Panel Contact nüCamp or your local dealer to order this part. #18: Photo Frame Don’t be afraid to decorate and make your home, home. #19: Custom Vent Cover I can’t link you this custom mod, but get creative and do something similar! #20: Refrigerator Insulation Use a roll of Reflectix Insulation to optimize your refrigerator performance. #21: Stick-on Wallpaper Adhesive wallpaper can really customize your interior! #22: Alternate T@G Cabinet Setup #23: Custom wood Utility Cart #24: Custom wood tray/stove cover #25: Custom wood coffee trays #26: Hidden fridge shelf #27: Kitchen Cabinet Shelves #28: Outdoor Shower There are many brands of pop-up tents and hanging showers to choose from. #29: Stick-on Tiles #30: Themed Pillows & Rug #31: Quick Connect for Gas #32: Stick-on LED Lights Make sure to get the waterproof LED light strip if you’re putting them outside!
