I added a TV in the bed area.  The front area near the dinette is useless for a TV.  First it would have to be a very small TV and second it would make sliding in and out of the dinette near the fridge very difficult.  

I have also added under cabinet lighting pucks.  They are battery operated which allowed me to add them to the inside of the upper cabinets above the sink as well....it really helps since that area is very dark.  I purchased these at Coscto for $20 for a 5 pack and they work great.

I am planning on removing the counter in the kitchen area and replacing it with a new counter from Ikea, new single bowl round stainless sink, 2 burner ramble wood cook top that is only 12" wide and 20" deep giving me more counter space as well.  I'm thinking about adding some sort of lift up counter extension on the bed side to add more counter space.  

I would also like to add some sort of retractable shower door.  I really don't like that shower curtain and it doesn't work very well.  

Has anyone done anything like this or something similar?  Any suggestions are welcomed.

If they're the ones with the remote control, take the batteries out when they're in storage. Because they're always "listening" for the remote, the batteries drain even when they're off.

Thanks for the heads up on the lights, I did not take the batteries out, but will do so now

I was at the RV show in Cleveland last weekend. There was a rep there from riverside. I told him there were 2 items that should be addressed. 1 a battery shutoff. 2 access to the valves for going from water tank to city water. Having to unscrew a panel to get to the valves is rediculous.
I also got those Costco lights. But for my pickup truck cab and under the cap. They work great.
Velcro helps with the shower curtain. You can get sticky side velcro.

? Nothing needs to be done with valves to alternate between tank and city water. The valves behind the cover are for winterizing, so you can shut off the line to the tank and pump antifreeze from a jug.

Like I said, I have a 195.  Where do you put your garbage can inside the trailer?  Up until now we have just used a paper grocery bag and placed it on the wheel well next to the kitchen cabinets.  I don't like this set up much and want something different

Have you considered a poly cutting board from The Cutting Board Factory (the Workhorse Series). They can be customized for size and thickness, are not as heavy as regular countertops and can be modified easily for sinks,etc. You could easily get another smaller one to hinge on as an extension. We removed the stove entirely (don't like using gas in such a small place)as well as the rangehood-in its place we installed another cabinet under micro (had to take micro out to do so but it was worth it).We plan on putting a access door into back storage under bed, have bins for trash, laundry. We put closet shelving into metal surrounding window frames as we have a 155 and storage is tight.  20170120_210355.jpg 20170120_210427.jpg
