Modifications to Eggscape

Modifications to Eggscape

I have been able to do a few modifications to our new 19 since we picked it up at the end of April. However it will take some time before I am able to sit down and write each one up. Here are a few pictures of what has been done so far. Anyone that will be at the Rally in a few days is welcome to stop by and take a sneak peak. We will be displaying one of two signs that will indicate if we are available to show what has been done or not.
The seating area has a 5 inch lift with shoe/full storage below, magazine rack in the back, table that slides front to back for access and mode of use, microwave door relocated to seat end and a seat back along the wall. Small removable sliding seat still to be made. There is a 12 volt night fan that fits in the window above the bed, flush mount SS microwave, and so far 2 marine hatches installed outside. The under bed bins provide a total of 8 cubic feet of slide out storage and can be made by anyone, with or without door fronts attached.
Hope to see everyone at the Rally...weather forecast is for sunny and hot.

Ed and Marilyn

Very nice Mods

All very nice mods. Your new trailer looks great.

Is the wall hanging storage attached with command strips? Did you order it online?

Nice. Quick question. Do the bins just slide across the floor?

Quick answer...they could for the average user with hinged doors however mine slide on old aluminum track lighting rail that I buy from Restore for $1 per eight foot length. Just pull out the stuff inside. The bins have a factory ridge in the bottom that they slide on.

Like your updated Gen 2 version of the night fan. Better suited to the Gen 2 window that doesn't have a direct in path for air. We've been using them for years on our boat. Most folks seem to like larger fans blasting away but we've found, even in the sweltering tropics, that the gentle breeze goes a long way in making the heat tolerable for sleeping. Our hanging night fan also rocks gently back and forth making an oscillating breeze.

I'm glad yet another person has gone for the slide out bins under the bed. I've been showing them to my wife for ages but she'd rather have her individual containers and kneel down to pull them out. But this time, when I showed her yours, she said "maybe". There's hope yet.

I love all your mods, especially the under bed bins. I am not going to the rally this year. Would you please provide the name and the source of getting the bins. What is the track size of the aluminum track lighting rails? I would like to go to HD or Lowes to look for them. Thank you for sharing.

LOL...The sweltering tropics! Is that any place below Colorado after June 1?! Getting that way here in central TX.....way too early!

There are some real crap bins out there for near the same price as the good strong and straight ones. The whole design relies heavily on the crate being straight. Here in Canada I found Home Depot to have the best.
The rails could simply be strips of wood or don’t use them at all. If you do slide them on the floor you might want to remove the metal edge as it does scrap the bins as they slide over.
