Hi Pat! That counter extension is brilliant! Every time we make a meal we wish we had just a little more counter space. Are those mounting brackets from Rockler and are the sturdy enough to support much weight?

Hi Rich , yes the clips are from Rockler . As you know the cabinets are not very strong so you can see I added 3/4 solid oak piece to cabinet front . Watch ,where Escape has your wiring up on frame. I used cut off piece from table front ,which is a little heavy .I also added 1/4 solid pieces of oak on shelf bottom that go between cabinet oak piece and wood where clips are attached to shelf ,that adds support, . I was thinking of making piece out of solid pine , like my bed shelf , which would be lighter . But for now thinking this will work . Someday may make whole new sink top . You can see by door a couple years ago had cut that table down , I leave it up all the time and now is not in my way going in and out door . My water jug sits there . I think adding to front of sink gives me the counter for a little food prep , like making sandwiches etc. used to have to put on bed which I don't want to do . Like TV will remove shelf for travel . It is pretty strong and not in the way of isle or bath door . Hope this makes sense . Later could take a few more pics . Pat

I have the same bracket with regular walls and no oak or other material added for support. Have not had any issues with the bracket pulling away from the wall (we use a 19" TV). One thing we do not do is travel with the TV on the bracket, I have always been wary of the bouncing that the trailer undergoes while driving. We always take the TV down when travelling and strap it face down onto the bed.

Ice breaker ,for whatever reason TV bracket keep pulling out of wall . Since I put my piece of oak there for 2 years have not had a problem . Escape put the tv bracket on . The tv is a 22 in. and it never rides on bracket going down the road . Pat
