Laundry Door Added to Front Dinette

We rarely have the front dinette set up in our 17 foot Escape, the bunk beds are almost always left in the sleeping position. The only time we put the bunk beds away and set up the front dinette is when folks stop by to see if the floor plan would work for them.

The bedding on the lower bunk makes it difficult to get into the front storage areas so we put things we rarely use like a shovel and vacuum in the left storage area but the right front storage area is usually empty. To make better use of this space I modified the right front seat by putting in a small triangular door. This small door provides enough room to put most dirty clothes into the storage areas; we’ll still need to lift the seat to put in some adult clothes. I was thinking of putting in a bigger door but was concerned about reducing the strength of the seat area.

Please see this link to for details.
