Re: Planned modifications for my 19'

The mods look good, Jim...

They do remind me of a question I've been wondering about, though. Where do people store their jackets? I guess if you come in from the rain they can hang in the bathroom (though that's awkward if somebody needs to use it). There doesn't seem to be a good place to store a couple of jackets that won't be in the way.

Re: Planned modifications for my 19'

Like many others, we have put some 3M "Command" hooks in convenient locations to hang things like jackets and hats.

Re: Planned modifications for my 19'

I put up 2 hooks, inside and outside the bathroom door and a third one at the dinette corner. You have that entire bathroom wall that faces the door available and others have mounted several coat hooks there.I guess you could also fold up the coats and put them in the closet on a shelf.

Re: Planned modifications for my 19'

Thinking about the wet jacket issue... What is the surface veneer used on the wood work? Is it a real wood veneer, or a plastic veneer that just looks like wood? I'd hesitate to hang a wet jacket against a real wood veneer, no matter what finish was put on top of it. If it is real wood, that really means that inside the bathroom is the only option I can see.

I'd guess those command hooks would have no problem sticking to whatever makes up the walls inside the bathroom...

Re: Planned modifications for my 19'

all the wood finishes on cabinets and wall surfaces appear to have protective coating and water just beads up and falls to floor with no absorption into the wood. I could see an issue with trailers that have carpet or other cloth fabrics finishes on the walls but not with the Escapes.

Re: Planned modifications for my 19'

There is a closet next to the bathroom for dry jackets. I'd put wet ones in the bathroom.
Some people change the closet to shelves but we use the hanging rod for jackets and shirts and put other items on the floor of the closet. We did not want shelves (and still don't) but others love their shelves. I don't know if it is a wood veneer on most surfaces but I believe the cabinet doors are oak. I have wiped down much of the veneer and have also wiped down a door or two with no problem, nothing soaking wet.

We have a plastic hook rack that hangs on the bathroom door with the hooks hanging outside the bathroom. We also use suction cup plastic hooks on the exterior of the trailer under the awning to hang jackets, towels, swimsuits, hats, etc. It works particularly well for things that are bulky that we don't want sticking out into the interior walkway & things that are wet/damp. We also put a couple on the other side to hang a couple of towels near the exterior shower.

Re: Planned modifications for my 19'

Installed a teak floor in the bath/shower area, seems more hygienic and suitable than rugs as dirt/debris can easily be swept off and disappear between the slats.

Re: Planned modifications for my 19'

Jim,

I've been watching your posts and know you to be somewhat of a perfectionist...what about that narrow gap between the 5th and 6th boards from the left??...

Re: Planned modifications for my 19'

that was a mistake, something you will not do when you do yours!! It is where the two separate pieces join, also note the different wood stain, from 2 different batches. Cloes enuf for gov't work was what we used to say
When do you get your 19' Steve?
