Getting the old race box trailer ready for family camping

I haven't used the race trailer since my wife & I went camping before kids... My girls have been enjoying it ever since as a play house for many years.
It won't take much to get it ready. It's a 6' x 12'  single axle so hopefully the LX can pull it up the hills. The only negative is no windows, other than that it ready to be put back in service.
I ordered up some bunk bed cots so we can all fit on there.

Hollister Hills, CA family day trip...

The family made the 2 hour jurney to the Hollister Hills SVRA here in California. It was our first family road trip adventure besides the many trips to the local sandy creek bottom just 2 minutes from the house.
I have done a lot of wheelin back in my younger days & know if the rig you're in is not set up it can be a very misrable trip. Of course I have been doing my best to get the LX all dialed in & comfy.
Well, I can humbly say it was a successful day trip & the family had a blast. They are asking when the next trip will be.
We didn't take many pics, but I did a video walk through of the McCrayZ man made course, it was absolutely insane, you just have to see it.
I'm working on the vid.

We now have cup holders...

There is no cup holders in a 80 series vehicle. Absolutely none. My LX450 is one of them, well until today, as you will see below I went with these cool 3D printed holders. After a lengthy web search there really no other options for the LX. With a LX450 a speaker is where the cubby hole is on a 80 series is.
No more leaking water bottles rolling around in the back seat. This was a good purchase for the family.

Interior LED lighting for the LX

The stock interior lighting is not the brightest. I came across these LED lights while doing another search & was amazed how bright they where. The price was also very low cost. I've seen others that where to bright, these are just right. They where very easy to install & have sticky tape on the back, in fact it was a perfect fit so I didn’t need to peel the backing off.  Pfran is the name, they came in a kit so I didn't have to worry about getting the wrong one's.

My tight little ride just got a bit brighter...

Pfran LED backup lamps for the LX
I can see now when backing up.
The stock reverse light are not very bright, in fact they are terrible. To see I had to apply the brakes. I came across these LEDs on the web so I snagged them. They are Pfran 7 watt. I installed only one for the pictures,
there is a definite difference.
