A few modifications to my 19

  • Needed a clothesline but did not want to drill holes.
  • Fold out step is too small for my big foot.
  • Hangers for towels and for trousers with no defacement.
  • A kitchen shelf for mugs and condiments, and hooks for spoons.

Looks great Myron. How did you attach the kitchen shelf, thinking might do the same?

looks like he attached the one end piece to the oh vent&dinette wall and the other end is resting on the window frame? nice and innovative...

Thanks. Coffee being very important to me, it was important to make this thing so the coffee cups would be up there snug and safe, while in transit. I first cut the shelf to size. On the right I screwed to it a small rectangle of thick, white vinyl from scrap I had on hand. Would have used aluminum sheet but then found the scrap. Drilled holes in it to match up with screw hidden by button. On left side of shelf I disassembled the window shade spool, cut a 2 inch length of square tube, drilled holes to match up, using the same screw/lock nut.

I found the right side wall was not a perfect right angle to the shelf so I decided to hide the gap with the verticle piece that goes up between the vent hood and the wall. That, I discovered, not only hid the gap but gave me reason to add that "flag" for the utensils hooks.

What I like is the entire thing is reversible with no visible damage

I see it now, take some magic marker and make it black, it will disappear before your eyes.

Very nice work. I quite like how you secure the coffee mugs. Hope you don't mind if I steal that idea .

Not road tested yet, but steal away. In a previous trailer life my mugs hung from hooks. It became apparent one bumpy road later this was a good way to smash mugs together.

When you keep bumping your head on the same thing it ends up being a bloody pain. I had that problem with the metal crank handle on a manual ceiling vent. When buying safe, odorless, non-staining Arctic Ban today I found the perfect solution for my cranky problem in the next aisle.

Nice Myron,I really like your idea for mugs,They always slide around in the cupboards and get chipped.Will have to see if I can adapt the idea into my 15A. A place for a few spice bottles as well as they always tip over and spill in the cupboards too.Winter projects a coming up.
