The middle dark wood is some kind off hard almost iron wood( not sure of what it is called) but no problem cutting on it.And I used olive oil to seal it.

Just finished a shower vent modification. There have been several ideas posted previously and I thought I would take a try. The mod consists of a small block of wood and a hinge mounted above the door with a "rare earth" magnet set inside the block. A metal plate is mounted to the door. To vent the shower area and keep the door in place the block is rotated down and the door closed. The magnet will hold the door even in travel. To close the door, rotate the block up and out of the way. Pictures below.

Hi Tim, could you please give me some info about your dinette table? Looks like it can be fully removed to open the area or use outside? Looks like it has some type of system for easy raising/lowering? Is it long enough to completely fill the gap when making the bed? Thanks! j

The hanging coat closet was not working for us any more so I removed the closet rod and installed some shelves. The shelves are composed of two separate boxes. The smaller one is on the bottom because of the wheel well intrusion. The larger one has ladder sides for the shelves. The only attachment point to the trailer is under the counter with L brackets. I just used cheap furring strips from Lowes and some left over 1/4 inch plywood. The larger open area at the bottom is for the laundry bag which we now no longer have to keep in the car.

Thanks. Well, the top shelf is sitting on the next one down. I spaced them evenly when I made the frames but didn't account for the cabinet drop down and so the space to put stuff on the shelf was small ( design flaw)

It will work until after Osoyoos then I may redo the top box. Room on the right side is for the sewer pipe and part of our table top.

New Table

Decided we needed a little more room on the table, so the latest mod was to remake the table top and back shelf that holds the Travasak. We kept the same folding legs but installed a smaller back shelf and a larger table top (no third piece to put in place at night.) My first experiences with Formica and contact cement and routing a slot for the plastic edging. Happy with this first experience. More room to get into the seats now also.
