Anyone else with a 19 with standard front dinette have problems with enough elbow room to put their shoes on easily?
We have the 19 and sitting at dinette is what we do or since we need to carry a cooler sit on that . I think we like the 21 but it won't fit in our driveway but I think we like the 5 TA better because it has the nice queen bed too . But we are happy we can cook , sleep , have our own bath . What else is there ? We are inside nice and warm and Love our Little Canadian Bambi . Life is Good ! Pat

modifications

Jim, thanks to you, Nancy said "see it can be done" I now have a new tool, actually two since I was in that area and a hole in the wall of my trailer. Now I need the contact cement, carpet remnant and edging for the hole. Maybe I won't mention any more of your good ideas.
Jack

Finished hooking up the electrical, the outside step light is a bright LED light which illuminates the entire step area. I also installed a small nighttime "red" led light at an downward angle to illuminate the interior step and door lip area. Finally a switch that controls them both, accessible from outside, on the bed corner piece,

I cut 2 pieces of 1x4 to fit, measure each piece as each one is different. They store nicely under the kitchen lower cabinets on their sides with cups or what ever in between.

Thanks Jim. Quick mod before we head to West Virginia Greenbriar Trail! Enjoy Osoyoos. I am envious!

I got around to installing a medicine cabinet in the bathroom, a spice rack in the kitchen, an accessory shelf in the dinette and a couple of coffee mug racks in the kitchen.
