Our mini mods: Dave added a little leather tab to keep the panel door closed. He also added a sliding shelf under the sink for pots and pans. Plus, I made a room darkening shade for the door.

Kathie: Can you expand on the door shade? Is it all cloth? How does it attach. It looks very clean.

My wife would really like such a door shade.

Those pull out racks are great, aren't they? I put one in our 19 as soon as we got it.

for a door shade--I put a couple stick up hooks on either side and hang my jacket over it during the night then the hooks are there to hang stuff on in the daytime

The shelf is a Lynk Roll Out Cabinet drawer 11x21:
http://www.amazon.com/Lynk-Professio.../dp/B000SP02RS
We got ours at a local discount store but I see Amazon carries them.

For the shade I used a car window sunscreen. We made a cardboard pattern. I cut that out of the sunscreen and the fabric. I used spray glue to attach the fabric to the sunscreen then sewed the binding back on. I did not want to use velcro so we held the finished shade up to the window and I put pins through where the screws were, then Dave glued on the magnets (removing the pins of course).
We love it.
Kathie
PS The shade fits in a nightstand drawer when not in use.

Here's the back:

I plan to look at this for the cupboard under the stove top on my 17B, but, there is a lip at the bottom of the cupboard. Has anybody adapted for such a situation? Looks like I would lose quite a bit of space just trying to clear the lip.
And, if there wasn't the lip, what prevents the drawer from rolling out on it's own during travel?

Hi Glenn . If the lip isn't too much , just add wood strip under slide to level to the opening . To stop the roll out you can figure something simple . I don't have roll out yet so I need to see it first then I will know what to add . Pat
