fold out bunk clamps

Post  jb_simerly on Mon Feb 20, 2012 11:32 pm

Any one with a HTT had to change these things out

if so how hard are they. Also seen where some campers had those cargo door latches on theirs

and was wandering if they would work on mine and would hold the door tight enough to keep water out they look like they would be more secure plus you would be able to put a lock on them if you want all four of mine broke last summer don't know if i tried to tighten them down to much or what but going to have to replace them

jb - we don't have an HTT anymore, but I thought we were doing something wrong, because we were getting water in there if we travelled in the rain. I was apparently tightening them TOO MUCH!! That caused the rubber gaskets to flatten, letting water get in.

I know some friends of ours have replaced theirs and use the little bar type now. They replaced them so they could completely lock theirs down - some teenagers were opening their HTT and using it for a party house when it was stored in their backyard. From the house, my friends couldn't see the camper, but the teens COULD!!

He didn't have any trouble changing them out - he said it only took him an hour or so to do it.

We have the those also and was looking into getting the arm bars. We have key locks in the top of each door that will hold the door inplace while tighting the handles. I have read it is not hard to replace them and fill in the holes if the new brackets don't line up. take photos while you replacing them and keep us updated on the progress.
