General Q & A / 2016 tbs single axle roof?
July 16, 2023, 10:07:43 AM
Could a 2016 TBS have the aluminum roof and floor even though it changed to single axle? The manufactured date is 12/2015 so I am hoping it might still be aluminum roof and floor?

Hi All.
Well I am halfway thru my latest project. I am converting my dometic awning from 10' to 8' on my 2014 14db.
Why you ask? because I never liked the fact that I can't open my bedroom window unless the awning is deployed. I think it was a bad design decision and effects several models from what I can see.
  So far I have disassembled the unit off the trailer and removed the fabric from the roller tube, removed the torsion assemblies and marked the alignment holes/slots on the tube prior to cutting
I then marked and cut the roller tube exactly 2 feet shorter( from 114.5 inches down to 90.5 inches) and redrilled the 3 rivet holes to align with the torsion assembly end cap as well as drilled a 3/8 dia hole/slot to match the previous tube end. I still have to order a replacement fabric piece (around $150) and reinstall the fabric onto the tube and reinsert the torsion assemblies which is only about an hours worth of work. Thought about cutting the existing fabric down by 2 feet and reusing but it had been out in the Texas sun for 4 years and was taking a beating from the uv rays and the underside had enough staining to not be worthwhile. I will update this thread with more pictures once the job is complete.
CampLite Travel Trailers / kitchen window
June 13, 2018, 01:00:43 PM
OK so the wife and I are new to Camplite. Purchased a used 2014 14db at the end of May.
On the way home from picking it up we did the newbie mistake of not latching the small window over the kitchen sink.  Needless to say it is now beside the highway somewhere in Arkansas.
Started searching for a dometic replacement window online and had real hard time finding a replacement.
Did not go to the local dealer and most were from europe at over $300 and a long lead time.
During my search I found a company called Tern Overland in Arizona. They carry a european window that actually looked better to me than the original, Theirs is also dual pane acrylic but has two pivot arms instead of one. It also has a nicer (t me screen and privacy shade. The screen is black aluminum mesh and seems more robust than the dometic.
The price for this window in the 300 mm high by 500 mm wide was $229 plus shipping. I removed the dometic seal and shade and the cutout for the window was almost exact to the new one(+ 1/8 inch) so I ordered it and it fit perfectly with no modification required to the cutout area. Even had  approx. a 1/8 inch adjustment to center  the new window and lineup the screws. It has a nice built in gasket and an inner frame that clamps the entire window to the opening with abut 11 screws for a very solid feel. I have enclosed some photos.The window has a slight (8%) tint and the frame is black aluminum rather than the dometic grey. It is also smaller on the exterior . I left the Dometic silver top piece attached as an added" rain gutter". If the aesthetics bother you then you may still want to hunt down the original, I like the look of the new one just fine as it matches the black anodized door and other trim on the exterior. I am not affiliated with Tern at all so don't let the post card in the photos influence you. Just wanted to post an alternative to the dometic that seems a lot easier to get and in my opinion is built better and arrived in 4 days.

CampLite Travel Trailers / wall cabinet attachment
June 12, 2018, 12:13:37 PM
HI all,

Just bought a used 2014 14db.
I have one side of the cabinet above the jacknife sofa where the cabinet is pulling away slightly from the wall.  I believe there is aluminum framing somewhere near there but can't figure out a great way to locate it. Anybody run into this and have any suggestions?
