Bunk support storage
« on: January 10, 2017, 09:46:25 AM »
As well built as the tent campers are, i have often wondered if anyone has ever had the underslung pvc pipe storage loosen on them, and what they did about it?

mine did - but still has screws holding to the frame, thats attached on the straps - the internal screws in the pipe has broke.

i stopped using it.

now I have a new plan...

Im not sure if its a good idea, I m going to try to find it in person and check it out - so far it may be what I need to store the poles, and have a better bumper :)

Yes! It absolutely can loosen! We used a few very heavy duty zip ties (bought at Harbor Freight) around the tube to the frame. That way if the screws loosen you won't loose your support poles!  :)
