Latest mod: Wife's idea: put a corner shower rack in the bathroom:

It's held in with a tension rod so I'm not sure how well it will travel--but we won't be using it to store stuff while moving. Mostly for shampoo and the like while parked.

Good use of wasted space. If you drilled down from the top and secured it, it wouldn't go anyplace or maybe this is a job for Ed's magic B-52 tape.

My rig is in the shop for finishing touches of lastest mod...raising the area (40" x 82") where the recliners are going in. I took the dinette out and while sitting there on a temp chair I could see that the view was too low so I am raising the floor in that area even with the cockpit and putting in storage under it.

Also having the macerator put in.

We picked that rack up at Bed Bath & Beyond. I think its this one:
Oversized 3-Tier Pole Shower Caddy - BedBathandBeyond.com

Brought the camper home for a bit today (nice & sunny out...and 40 degrees LOL). Finally replaced the Harris coach battery with something else (what ever deep-cycle that O'Reilly's Auto Parts had.) At least it holds a charge now! LOL

DW had same idea to put in the RV shower... worked fine...
Today she tried to put the same setup into our master bath shower at home. I now have a hole in the drywall ceiling to patch. Oops.

I'll get a pic of the shelf I added to the RV bathroom for storage while camping.

Smile door bumper

door stop this has probably been done but thought i would post it anyway instead of using some foam piece you have to take off and on . cheap fix you can get a two pack for around four bucks in case it gets blown off but it sticks good they are door knob wall bumpers. .

I think I am missing something...or not...Is the placement in the upper corner so the door does not bang into the framework for the awning when it is extended?

thanks

Would love to see a few pics when that one is done. We have been thinking about replacing our couch with 2 recliners but never thought about raising them.

No problem - plan to do a series of photos of mods once I'm finished. Putting in a temp chair and seeing what you would see at that eye level clued me in. Plus a little storage for the cockpit table and shoes under it.

Yeah, I was working on a few mods over the weekend. Raised the passenger console with two cup holders for DW. Happy wife ...happy life.

I was actually trying to examine the space underneath the driver and passenger seat thinking about one or two slide out drawers. It seemed like a good place for more storage.

Would really like to see pictures of your project.
