Interior Modifications to the CR28RL

After we bought our new CR28RL 5th wheel, there were some things we were not very happy with. We were unable to sit at the dining room table comfortably because the chairs against the wall were damaging the blind and the wall. The seating was way too tight. The base of the table would hit your knees and the base of the post would not allow you to set the chairs straight. Solution: I removed the base and built a smaller one, moved the post to the end of the table, and fastened the table to the wall. I then removed the 2 chairs against the wall and built in a bench seat (my wife mad the cushions). Now we can sit comfortably at the table with no leg interference, and we have a lot more storage. And our wine cooler even fits under the table against the wall.

There is also very little drawer space in this unit. I removed one on the recliners (we don't need it) and built in a solid walnut desk. Now we have a work space and more drawers. I also built a drawer under the cabinet by the sink for silverware.
In the bathroom I added another medicine cabinet with a towel rack and shelving.
The unit feels more comfortable and homely now.
I posted some pics to show the changes.

Happy travels!

Mods look good. I especially like the desk!

Now you have to work at posting your pics right side up.

That was my first post with pics. They were right-side up when I viewed them before I attached them. I'm not how to fix that yet.

RudiH, a lot of folks have trouble with the pics coming out sideways or up side down. I personally can't help you with any ideas.
mark5w has posted with solutions for other folks, maybe he will jump in here and help out.

What I've done in the past was to pull up the picture on the "PHOTO" program. (Or any photo editing program.) Do the edits and save the picture under a different name. Then I went thru the upload process and had no problems. I used the "Manage attachments" in the "Go Advanced" tab.

Thanks Mark. I appreciate the explanation, and I hope it will help some of the others that have the same problem.

I have never experienced or had to deal with this issue. So consequently I couldn't help the folks who were.
RudiH sorry we hijacked your thread with this. Hopefully Mark's explanation will help.


Back to the mods you did. They all look great. It's apparent you posses some carpentry skills.

Thanks for the info on how to fix the pics. I will try that next time. Makes sense that it would work.

I like the mods especially the clean mats and properly placed sofa or seater. I also don't know how you should fix these pictures.
