I had to kind of laugh over the comment in the video of putting lights in the cabinets. Yes, I know folks will do that and like it. However, not sure how that would work in our trailer as the cabinets are wadded pretty full with books, clothes (in ebags), kitchen stuff and what-not.


I do like the idea of putting something in the doors to let air flow through. I usually flip open the doors when I'm parked somewhere for more than a day. Haven't mentioned this to Dirk, although I did show him the post on the furnace vents inserted in the dinette cabinets and he liked that idea. Wonder if you can do furnace vents in the doors as well?

I like this as much as glass. If you do a search, there is lots of vented grille designed for this use. We have used it on cabinets before. You would remove the plywood panel, and silicone the grille in place.

Same here.
I’m wondering what would be involved in removing the glass insert and replacing it with an attractive metal grid of some sort. I’ve seen some nice ones used to protect the bottom of screen doors.

As simple as a well placed hammer blow, do you suppose?

I was thinking of inserting vents underneath so when your turn on the cabinet interior light, it will shine down at night for some indirect lighting.

How does one remove the plywood panel, aren't they installed when gluing up the frame?

Plexiglas replacement

Probably.
I would think the plexiglas is set into a groove, with the side frame apart at first, then the frame brought together for final gluing and possible corner fasteners. Alternately, the plexiglas is set into an assembled outer frame, then an inner liner frame is glued or fastened over the top of the plexiglas. Other ways are possible too, but it seems like the wooden bits would use “glue,” and the bond would need to be broken—which requires a little finesse, and with the possibility of breaking something; if you’re clutzy like me.

What is the point of a window you can't see through and that lets in no light?

I'm guessing that it has a light inside that turns on when you open the cupboard so you can see the contents and that the light goes out when you close it?
Or, does the light go on when you close the cupboard?

We were at ETI this morning having something fixed, and got to take a look at the new interior. It looks quite nice!

Is it a display unit or someone’s order?
I ask that because hole under bench by the door and the large fridge.

It was the display model in the showroom.

After looking at these closeup pictures, We’ve moved from 100% on board to skeptical.

The kitchen counter, as others have said, looks unfinished without the backsplash. Wonder how well spaghetti sauce or other cooking splatters, will wipe off the almost white surface? On a previous RV with a similar situation, I bought some plexiglass and secured it to the wall around the range with little tabs of double sided tape. Much easier to clean.

The contrast between the real maple doors and the fake maple panels is stark. I’ll join the skeptics and say the colors will never really be a great match.

Giving a second round of thought to oak vs maple.

Thanks...interesting

I wonder if the shoe hole under the seat by the door is now standard and if you want a door over it would be extra.

I can see them putting in the big fridge as it is more impressive than the microwave option.

I didn't take a close look at the build sheet, so I'm not sure what options it had. I assumed the "shoe hole door" just hadn't been installed yet.

OR, it could have been purposely left that way for the showroom model so individuals could view the storage available without lifting up cushions, etc.

I'm sticking with the oak myself, I had ordered a special oak floor look so mixing woods would be too busy.

Too many sharp instruments in the kitchen. Without a hard-sided backsplash I'm afraid I would manage to somehow poke a hole in the vinyl wall.

The frosted glass is very attractive, like the idea of vent circulation -- thought about a nice metal grate for my cabinet door but couldn't find a design I liked. Then I found this in the shades department. Yes, ridiculously expensive but this was a returned custom fit at Home Depot, $10.

myron, that's a lovely solution. will you attach it with a frame, or??

Re the end door, i'd ordered that in my 17a double dinette, and the final pics before quality control showed it as an opening. An email confirmed that it just hadn't been added yet.

Re backsplash, I used the extra formica i received to cut two pieces; one is behind the stove/sink from the kitchen window to the corner, and another from the corner to the edge of the wardrobe. I used an edging sprayed to match the vinyl lining, and some velcro to hold the tops snug against the wall. I love it, and i never worry about splashes. There's a photo here: http://www.escapeforum.org/forums/f8...tml#post250852

edited to add credit for the idea to PatandLinda in southern calif.

Since the new stove has a glass top backsplash I'm not too concerned with the back wall and I plan on trying to weasel an extra piece of formica to make a small backsplash, particularly behind the sink. Maybe I'll cut my sink cover in half and make 2 half moons??
