One could easily think that seeing as how over a dozen hit movies have scenes filmed from there. As you drive up the road you can stop and read information about the history of the area and how and when the pinnacles were formed. Scenes from movies such as Planet of the Apes(the remake)...Star Trek...a couple of Disney movies and some others I can't recall were shot there. It's actually pretty cool driving away from that place knowing so much more about it seeing as how I knew nothing about when I first got there.

Re: Trona Pinnacles somewhat of a trip report

Nice warm light sure makes your photos pop - they are sweet!

Was wondering about the 3-step scissor steps you have - do they just detach some how and store in the SMB? Do you remember what mfd. they are?

Thanks

Re: Trona Pinnacles somewhat of a trip report

About the scissor steps...I did a search online and came across an rv store in town that had some. They were ordered for a customer from a company called C.R. Brophy Machine Works out of Clackamas, Or...I do believe they have other locations. The customer had changed his mind so I snagged them...totally happy with them and they are very sturdy. It came with a bracket that I mounted to the pinch weld below the door and the steps attach with a pin on each side of the bracket...just pull the pins out to remove the steps. If you notice I mounted the steps directly under the right side door. That way if I'm inside I just have to open one door to get in and out instead of opening both.

If you do a search on rv scissor steps you'll come up with just a whole lot of other companies that offer the same thing...just at different prices and maybe closer to where you live.

Hope this helps.

Eric

Re: Trona Pinnacles somewhat of a trip report

Sure would like to install the scissor steps, but don't see how it is possible to attach the bracket to the pinch weld that my nerf boards are attached to. The nerf boards came with the rig from SMB West - really no room there between the nerf boards and the bottom of the door.

Re: Trona Pinnacles somewhat of a trip report

stikine ,
Go to pages two and three of my gallery and look at the brackets that I designed for the Fiamma Awning . You could do the same for rock solid mount . I was going fabricate some for the Scissor Steps but decided not to because lack of storage .

Re: Trona Pinnacles somewhat of a trip report

Thanks Greggde - looked at your brackets - looks like with a fair amount of work a guy could weld something on, but by far those that have a bit of their pinch weld exposed have a fairly simple install at least as far as installing the bracket that comes with the scissor steps, that allows the steps to simply slip over the "J" hooks for very fast mounting/dismounting.
