Also, I need a flat place to lay watercolor papers to dry. I am thinking that there might be a way to attach something to the front of the shelf that is over the rock guard window in the front of the trailer so that I could hook on (when I need it) a lightweight wire shelf that would extend out over the table. The watercolor paper is attached to a foam backing, and I don't do large sheets when we travel so the wire shelf would only need to be about a foot wide. Any suggestions on how I could do this, and would the trailer shelf be strong enough to make it work?
Hi Trav . I would make all my walls reenforced . 2 walls in bed and both walls in bath .at the least ,the dinette, bath wall and bed frig's wall. As for shelf over dinette , on the other side add piece of ply on other side of shelf about 1/4 in or 3/8 in thick . When you attach to the front of that shelf , your screws will go into the piece of wood you put behind and give what you are attaching support . The screws you use you don't want to be long that they go through to other side of your support wood . If you feel screws will ,you can use wider wood blocks like 3/4 in thick . Hope this makes sence . Also always make sure Escape doesn't have any wiring running where you are screwing through . If you are having your trailer built ask them to reenforce that front piece for you , explaining what you need . Pat
