4. upper bunk support.  This was mandated after my LARGNESS cracked the bunk rail.  reinforced the rail with angle metal support under veneer and added this to support the rail.

6. Lift Kit for Dexter axle from local dealer.  $140 Ouch  and a pain to install thanks to bolts provided in kit. Had to use an impact for full threads on the bolts.  But, they will never come off.

9. Window in door.  From Amazon (vintage technologies) $154.   fairly easy install.  Jig saw, masking tape.  Careful on measurements and placement. i make a 3 5/8" jig and used that to get consistent side and top spacing and used the inner frame as the template by mounting it with two screws to the inner door and then marking with a sharpie.
