Great look! Have you had your trailer in high heat yet? I was wondering if the Velcro tab adhesive will melt away on the window frames. I had that problem with a Scamp....the velcro would slide around as the adhesive softened in the heat...

Been in high heat but didn't have these shades yet. Time will tell. I will say that our outside shades made a big difference in the 111 degree heat. See the top of this thread.

I bet they did! Those are a great idea and serve more than one purpose. Your mods have been ipressive I have just ordered samples from FLOR and will think about doing our 5.0 floor with them...what a cool idea!
Thanks,
Fran
PS - Hope your reflectix panels stay up - let us know when you have experienced some hot weather!

Hurry up and patent the power cord bag! That's a really good idea with universal utility.

re: "Update on awnings... I use Awning Track..."

Great mod! When I get my 19 this is one of the first things I will do.
Thanks for a brilliant idea.

Then the fold down table at the end of the counter that hangs out over the bed,I found hard on the toes at night so I made a couple oak blocks with slots in and mounted brackets on the table bottom that slide into the slots so it can be removed at night time.

What kind of finish did you use to protect the cutting board ? I cringe when I visualize cutting marks on it. Much too nice for its intended use !
