Trailer Accessories

ch1No camper is complete without an accompanying collection of accessories. Some are practical and necessary, while others might be comforts. I picked up some of each.

Chocks for the wheels are on the necessary side – particularly with the large offroad tires. The Neon now rolls over things pretty easily, so if it gets away it’s going to mean trouble.

I picked up four Ironton antislip wheel chocks. These are bright yellow, and have antislip rubber treads that grip asphalt or concrete effectively. While these chocks are somewhat smaller (7.1″ L x 3.15″ W x 4″ H) than the chocks I’ve used before, they appear stronger due to the reinforced molded ridges and thicker materials.

Driven over once too many times. The thinner construction of the chock led to some deformation.

Unlike my old chocks, I don’t think they will be damaged when I inadvertently drive over them. The smaller size also means they store in a smaller space.

These chocks, given their smaller size, are also perfect to carry with recovery gear to chock the Jeep when winching another vehicle. Available from Northern Tool for a few bucks apiece.

For comfort, I moved a couple bunk lights from the big popup to the Neon. The neon has the 12vdc 1/4″ jack on the interior light fixtures like those in the rest of the Fleetwood line.

One light is a Bargman bunk light and the other is a combination light and two speed fan. Either can be clipped to the overhead bunk support bracket to provide lighting or some air movement.

The lights can be found in RV or camper supply stores, or online.

Bargman Bunk Light. These plug into the Neon’s interior lighting and provide convenient lighting.
