Cup holder solution.

2018 Thor 37rb class A. I finally figured out a solution to the lousy cup holders in my RV. It is a product called squeak Swigzy. it is a cup holder with an adjustable base. It fits into your cup holders in the basics pans to lock it securely in place. I just got mine through the mail and tried it it works great.Click image for larger version

There s a post on this forum, somewhere, explaining that a 3"to 4" abs pipe adapter works perfectly.

Abs does and pvc doesn't, or vice versa.

Maybe someone can find the thread/post.

Any cup holder is better than mine...not a single one up front. The wife has to hold my cocktails when I drive.

Sure! First wife in the passenger seat, the other two wives on the couch behind her.


I say “pics, or it didn’t happen”.

I used the white pvc 3" caps and then removed the stock holders, using a dremmel with ~1/4" sanding drum to cut the bottom out (use the small outside bottom of the cup holder as a guide for the sanding drum). This leaves a net opening that will fit the pvc cap snug. I then used black abs pipe glue to bond the cap to the holder and paint the white cap inside with satin black.
The result is a holder that cups or bottles fit perfectly and you can't tell it's not stock (except that it works!)
The 3" black abs caps are too thick so the OD is larger than you can open the stock cup holder base to fit, nor will it fit in the factory opening.

My drink holder needs to be a bit tighter because every time I slam on the brakes I spill my beer

3" DWV couplers fit perfectly, and you can notch them to accommodate a handle if needed.

A pony keg squeezes nicely between the seat and table. Just drink from the tap. No cup holder needed.

I take a koozie cut it in half and slide it into the bottom of my travel cup or bottle water, fits into the cup holder fine for me. And it stays upright. I am a koozie fanatic.
