  My husband and I love our new Class B-plus 25-foot motorhome, but found the 6-quart trash can for the galley’s built-in countertop garbage chute did not meet our needs.

Chutes and a Ladder

May 23, 2016

  I own a 40-foot American Eagle motorhome with a storage area that goes all the way across underneath the coach. I bought a folding ladder from Camping World (item No. 20319) that folds down to about 4 inches square. I wanted to be able to put the ladder in the storage area and get it out again... Read more »
