    Ladder

    The ladder for these trailers is just a bit long. It is long enough that it doesn't fit on the bunks.

    I found a bunk ladder at RV Surplus and adapted it to the Cyclone ladder.
    Now I have two short ladders.

    Chair rail wallpaper border trim

    I got some extra border while in Elkhart. Didn't like the way the hallway and bedroom looked with the lack of trim.

    Added another pic tonight.

    I've looked at your pictures before and again today. The border is self stick and very easy to work with.

    I like the way it came out well enough that I will be getting more for the garage. The garage is already finished in the same wall and cabinet used in the coach, they are no longer "white washed".

    I see we think along the same lines .

    I am trying to get a price on window valances made up for the garage to continue the trim.
    They are not standard though. The size I need is what is in the bedroom, but the bedroom trim is different fabric.

    I plan on adding the side piece to my narrow side windows in the hallway too.

    I also noticed your comment on the new style steps in your album.
    I plan on adding the 4 step setup for ours, make it easier for my wife to get in and out. Tried picking them up when I was in Indiana, even drove out to Lippert - but it turned out to be more then "just picking them up.

    I looked - measured a 2010 Landmark (with that custom full body paint!).
    They look like they are back to the older style steps. The radius steps look much better.

    The step picture is a new as 07-24-09 Landmark

    The 4 steps are great, the Landmark we had did have the 4 steps it does make a huge difference in getting in and out. We will have the 4 steps on our next 5th wheel. GBY....

    Yes, and it is self stick, so easy to do.
    Didn't show pictures of it but I also wrapped it around to the bathroom.
    Also considering adding it to the garage now.
