Excellent job. You've done exactly what I intend to do with the carpet on the wheel wells and a false floor. Looks very pro. What I really like about having extra storage spaces is that you can separate items more instead of having them close together in fewer spaces.

Maybe some folks still doing build sheets might ask to put the propane line out of the way so they can do this mod without moving lines.

Thanks everyone for your kind words I am happy with the way this project turned out. But have to say this project has turned out to be one huge time-consuming beast. I would have never dreamed that I would have as much time in this project as I do. Oh ,Well now it's time to start working on the other wheel well area under the kitchen sink. At least I have a head start on the this new project because of Ron work with moveing the kitchen sink pluming. I do really appreciate everyone's posting of their projects I sure helps.

Ron your right about that if ETI could move the propane lines just couple of inches that would have saved me many of hours of work.

My wife gave me a hint the other day that she thought that I'd done enough opening up for a while. I showed her your "finished" photos and she seems to have warmed up to the idea of opening up the under the fridge space also

Of course, now that you've figured out how to do the mod it'll probably only take me half the time

I love the great quality work and super finished appearance of this mod. Great job. However, I could see that for myself I would have very little need for the extra space this frees up. Maybe we travel lighter than others, but when four of us leave in the 19' for three weeks away, we have more space in the existing storage areas than we can fill, and don't really need any more. Will keep this mod in mind, however, for the future if our needs do change.

I, too, have empty space even in the little 15A so wouldn't need additional storage. But this is the most professional "remodel" I have seen. It reminds me of my grandmother who taught me that when sewing, the garment should look as good on the inside as the outside. Words to live by when taking on any project...
