I really thank Alf for the drawer insert idea..

We did go down to Home Hardware in Osoyoos after I saw yours and love it--It's what I wanted and now gives me 2 layers in that drawer..

As for dish drainers--I have the small RV one found at Walmart--but usually just put the rack inside a metal tray (to catch the water) and lay it on the stove cover over to the sink...(one of us is messier than the other doing dishes!)

rbryan4, the sunbrella fabric in Cafe Egg is called Bravada Salsa. Very similar indeed...

We have been using those since we picked up the trailer in 2009. They sure do work great for double layer storage, as nothing is very deep that goes in those drawers.

My wife bought on just like that a month ago, and we have used it once. She is big on it, and it does work, but for me I would just as soon keep using a tea towel to put the washed dishes on. Has worked for us for a couple decades now.

I have to add my vote for the microfiber dish drying mat. Works fantastic and it's amazing how much moisture it can hold and how fast it dries. Packs up really nice too.

Frankly, I wouldn't care what anyone uses... if they're willing to do the dishes!

And if the fridge gets too cold, you can hang the microfiber mat over the fridge vent.

Felicity is taking shape - picked up the rear camera, stereo, and formica this week. ETI was ok with moving the antenna coax down underneath the cabinet next to the stereo; had that angled so a remote could control it from the bed or thru the entry doorway.
