When folks get shelves in the closets, are they removable or permanent?

escape said they could make us a mattress cover out of the same material as the cushon covers. It it zippered so you can take it off and wash it. we like to put the sleeping covers or bags away. we thought the bed area would look cleaner and everything would go together.

bob, the shelves in our trailer are not removable but you can have them made that way if you want. we thought we wound only be hanging a few things in there so we went with strengthening the wall by the bath so as to hang hooks for coats and other items.

It is in the upper left hand corner, right next to the factory installed standard 120v outlet.

jim, i did notice an advantage with the u shaped dinette. you can sit on the back wall with no problem. with the other setup, if you turn sideways, looking toward the front of the trailer your back hits a part of the window sticking out of the wall. i guess we will have to come up with some type of pad if we want to sit like that.

How about a pillow?

Something else to consider, lights inside cabinets and under the bed. I had ETI install 2x12v lights under the bed by each hatch opening, BUT, they can not attach the lights due to some regulation. So they ran the wires, capped them and put the lights loose inside the unit. Very easy to hook up, if it ever stops snowing. Perhaps something similar could be done in the overheads with a switch? I installed battery led strip lights inside mine Planned modifications to BlackJack….

thanks jim, i asked reace about your idea and like you said he wouldn't do it but he didnt offer the option of just running the wires. i'll ask him again. i guess we will have to use some type of pillow on the dinette wall to cushion the window. Over about six months i wrote down ideas from alot of different people on the blog. Some of the changes are now standard but some i was interested in he would not do again. For example, thicker cushions (would not set up flat against the walls), large outdoor matt, 30# tanks, reinforce outside walls (not needed), reinforce bath door (hinges not strong enough). Do you know if you have the sprayed on insulation or even without it, do you have to clean out weep holes every so often? It seems like they could get plugged with road dirt.

Yes, I have the foam underneath, it covers almost the entire bottom front to back. There are several weepholes around the perimeter, I check them yearly and have found no clogging. I have to look at the frame, I've wondered if there should not be similar weep
holes to allow any moisture to escape.
