This horizontal 2x4 and I became best friends many many times during the build.

The wife scrawled "watch your head " on it with a sharpie as a bad joke.

During camping adventures the love occasionally continues.

( seems to depend on alcohol consumption)

I didn't bump my head until I started going in and out of the doors, then I did it a few times until I stopped leaning into it, and started sitting down into it. :thumbsup:

I've peeled off some head skin going through the door openings more than once.
Stepping in/out vs sitting and swinging the legs in/out will do that.
I install my cabin lights last since I keep banging my forehead on them while working on the interior. :D Danny

I am short so ducking is not normal for me. Hit the door about once a week. Started slowing down when exiting.

Now Mike---I kept putting the hatch on a ladder and he has turned to walk into it a couple of times. Rang his bell once. Boy that hurt.

I was all excited about getting something out of the trailer for one reason or another. I smacked my noggin' and ended up talking to Elvis for a couple of minutes. Like everyone else, I've learned that we take our time getting in and out of a teardrop.

I seriously doubt those four 'no' votes, by the way.

Working on it? I smack my head on my TD side doors on a regular basis just camping in it. Hurts like %$#@!!! I have to have a drink to ease the pain. :lol:

OK that's twice tonight I just read slowing down will help. Sounds like sound advice for getting in and out and for a lifestyle adjustment!
