Thank you so very much to Donna D for fixing our picture display issue!! Everything should be displaying correctly now.

Thank you to others for the nice comments!

Also, for reference, I thought I would include some of our custom choices during the build process:
  • Outside graphics color: silver
  • Countertops are Mineral Spa with cream colored trim
  • Seat cushions are from Sailrite: Nauga Soft Feather (It's a soft vinyl and cleans up really well. I poured ketchup, soy sauce, and chocolate sauce on all our fabric samples, and everything easily wiped off this Nauga Soft line.)
  • Flooring is Shaw City Park Boardwalk

What a great idea to put the fabric through the tests before purchase. With kids, you don't want to worry constantly about the cushions. It's camping!

WOW!!!

We have a much older 17B but I like some the things you have done---I wish we had the ledge in the bathroom and our screen door is a bi fold so the wall where your pegboard is--is taken up by it...

I carry probably too much stuff in mine--but we are only two people!!

We have a travasak (same idea as your bedding) I sewed a pillowslip on the bottom edge to tuck in under the cushions so one of us can't pull all the covers all askew. It stays in place nicely..

Wow, a lot of nice mods. You sure have personalized your 17B.
I have a few easier ones to add and some questions about some of yours.
Additions:
Because I only travel with kids occasionally I wanted the option of removing the upper bunk and making the front area more usable. To that end I ground off the ends of the hinge pins and replaced them with quick links. Now I can leave the upper bunk pieces at home and use the full lower bunk as my bed. Now the lower bunk is full size and a very comfortable single bed. And when needed, re-installing the upper bunk is an easy 5 minute task. I mentioned this to Reace and he seemed to like it.

I made a couple of standard additions to the screen door: a grab bar and a grill. I think they should come standard with the doors, but they are easy to add. The bar makes opening and closing the door much more convenient and the grill really protects the screen, especially with young kids and dogs. The pic also shows a collapsible broom held in place by a 3M Command Broom Grabber off to the left.

Clearly my mods are a lot simpler, but I think useful.
My main question is how did you go about attaching the backsplash tiles to the soft vinyl wall behind the stove? I think a re-design there by ETI would be welcome and I have already worried about that space close to the stove over time.
I like your bathroom mods. I had already added the tension bars in the med cabinet and over the shelf, and think I'll try the suction cup additions as well.
I've also added tension bars in some of the cabinets as well, and of course in the fridge.
Thanks for all the ideas and for sharing.

Walt
