Here are the shelves that I put in a wardrobe in the back of my trailer.

And my adjustable aluminum door stop. Broke the old plastic one and got bored at work one night. Whipped this up on the lathe.

These aren't mods to the HTT, but are some projects I made for our last trip to Fort Wilderness at Disney World (we still had the Cub then).

This is a street lamp made from a Christmas tree stand, 3" PVC pipe, some couplers and acrylic globes glued together to look like a Mickey head. I also have a plain round globe that we use most of the time.

These are Mickey head awning lights that I made too. The heads are acrylic globes and the ears are plastic baseballs. We use these most of the time that we camp, but occasionally swap them out for some windsock-type lights that we have also.

Here are pics of my battery box mod. I used a $35 tool/storage box from Lowes designed for the back of an SUV. It's bolted to the same plate as the original box. I had to move the propane tank mounting back a couple of inches to get it in behind the tongue jack.

When these interstate batts wear out, I'll replace them with the 6 volt variety.

I added the switch in case I need to disconnect the batts. The extra space in the box is used to store the wood for jack stand pads, tie-down bungies, the tongue jack foot, gloves, rope, etc.

Edit for SPELL CHECK [emoticon]

I moved the fire extinguisher to this location as it was mounted off the side of the oven box next to the door. It was getting hit when coming or going and we wanted to mount a pocket storage for shoes there.

Shoe caddy next to the door. Fire extinguisher was mounted here.

Here is a level made in the 1930s that belonged to my Dad. This tool is part of my earliest memories. He always used it during all his building projects around our house while I was growing up. He was instrumental with helping us get this trailer before he passed away in '05, so, I thought it would be a nice tribute to have a place in the camper to carry it. I sometimes use it when setting up if the site is not very level. It is a beautiful piece.

Thanks BP. I think about him when I look at that level. I wish I was as good at the woodworking and other things he did. He was amazing with wood.

Here is another pic. Maybe not exactly a mod, but, they replaced the cheap caps that came on the wheels.
The Yin-Yang stickers were my daughter's idea. Love it. [image][image]
