The small rectangular pieces are for IV bags. The aluminum brackets with bars that pull forward and then drop down are very similar to the ceiling mounts I have for a third stretcher. Grab bar. Square aluminum... has me stumped.

pop us a picture of the items swung down (that come down). Might hint at us what they are for

Those hangers in that last pic could actually come in pretty handy for an extra bed (Cot) in a pinch!

I've considered moving it to make it wider for a more comfortable bunk width. The primary sleeping area comes first though. :D

Thanks everyone

I am weighing my options and will be taking some stuff down and seeing whats there. The square tubes are for the outside tent, previous owner velcro strapped them to the grab handle and I forgot to take them down or say that sorry

The long lights are not my favorite, would rather have the round LED types but need to get in there and see whats what

Main issue is need to add a fan somewhere for ventilation, and off center is fine with me

Other issue is switching to LED to save power and will see what bulb options are available for swapouts or if light fixtures need to be changed as well?

And need to run back up and security camera cables, speaker wires etc while its open as well

And I am not as handyman as most of you so should be fun LOL

Thanks for everyone for sharing your input and experience

I'm guessing those existing lights are Flourescents? If so, Yeah, I'll bet you have to replace the fixtures...

Could be wall or door (side or back) fan as well.

LED is the bomb... buttt... lets be honest for as small amount of light we require, the Fluorescents are pretty good at energy sipping if you got them and may not be worth switching out unless your rearranging lights anyway. Regular incandescent... well that's worth switching.

And need to run back up and security camera cables, speaker wires etc while its open as well
This is getting easier and easier. All these can be done with Bluetooth. NO WIRES.

Find out from manufacture of your body if you can get a second rail like the one in your pic. Mount both on the roof and TADA...... stainless steel roof rack.
