I switched to cups that fit. I found a Yeti that fits perfectly for coffee and some nameless but very nice tall one for water.

We use the 30 oz SS mugs. Four year ago someone discovered the 3 inch PVC, schedule 20, pipe connectors fit tightly in the cup holders and extend up to the handle on the mugs. 3" PVC, schedule 40 pipe connectors are to large in diameter to fit. Several people where not able to find the schedule 20 connectors and use the 3 " schedule 40 threaded pipe adapters instead. The schedule 20 couplers painted black with vinyl paint make the cup holders look like what should have come on the coach.

We just grab a 20 ounce bottle from the Fridge, and have at it!
No need for anything in the way up front.

If you got the right liquor, you should never have to put the cup down

My biggest problem is my right cup holder is too low to access safely while driving, and the my left cup holder while in a good location is also a safety hazard because I am right handed.

So what I have done as fix/mod is too quit drinking while driving

Wonder if I could find a model that would hold two miniature kegs; or better yet; run a tap line to one of the kegs that would fit in the fridge?

Run the keg into your ice-maker... then run a line to your helmet with a tap on it!

These coffee cups fit perfect in the cup holders. Got them in 2017 so. It sure if they are available any longer.
