I can't seem to make image and video links work here on PUX, so I am going to have to link you to my post about my pop-up mods on another forum.

http://edcforums.com/index.php?topic=19922.0

Any questions, I'll be happy to try and answer as soon as possible.

Thanks for looking,
Dan

As a fellow cobalt owner, my hat is off too you.  Awesome mods and easy to follow and documented!!  One of my best mods was putting the porta potty inside the cabinet on the right as you enter.  Got the idea from popup portal.  Gets wife's vote for best mod to be used in the middle of the night.  best wishes and thanks, Bill, Snoqualmie WA

I have one of those clip on oscillating fans and love it but when I tried to clip it to the shepherds pole it vibrates the whole roof so loud I have to take it off. On my old Colman PU I would just clip it to the door straps on the ceiling and let it hang but I'm still to find a good spot for it on the Starcraft.

Thanks for the kind words.I've thought about a porta potty, but we store our gray water tank in that cabinet.  Also, we usualy camp at places that have bathroom facilities.Thankfuly the fans aren't too loud.  If you are curious, you can hear them in the video link that I made.Thanks again,Dan

The fans themselves aren't loud but for some reason they put out just the right vibration to make the roof hum when hooked to the shepherds poles in our Starcraft.

We love your storage mod using the tension rods & white closet shelving. DH built one in just under an hour and it works great!  We were happy to have the tension rods with us on our recent camping trip to northern Ontario...250 miles from the Soo, our popup wouldn't pop up, so we used tension rods to hold up the corners of the camper till we left and could get it fixed properly!
