Looks Great. I would, however, prefer a pillow and not a fan under my head at night .

That's where the fan rides when we travel.

It's very homey now. We're saving all the original stuff in case we sell it some day.

I like what you've done with your unit. I'm going to steal some of your ideas for our 2010 19RD.



I really like the cabinets above the main bed. Unfortunately the 2010 only has a shelf up there.

I guess to keep the price down they had to eliminate some of the niceties. ( like 3 burner stove, now 2, fewer interior lights. ) I've made a few changes already. I never understood why they put a big medicine cabinet over the sink where anyone over 4 feet tall would whack their head while trying to brush their teeth. I moved it over toward the left wall and installed a mirror in its place.

I also added a three drawer plastic cabinet in that dead spot next to the sink. It comes up almost to the electric outlet.

Still looking for more ideas.

Stick with your shelf. Those cabinets above the bed are very hard to reach. You have to crawl over the bed to get to them.

We have the 3 burners but don't use the stovetop to cook. When we can't cook outside we make something fast in the microwave. Our have too many lights but they're the cheap ones. I was spoiled with the double lights in the Sunline. The had switches so you could shut one side of the fixture off.

We had no dead spot next to the sink. There's a handy cabinet there for washcloths, towels, TP etc. Our Medicine cab is above the sink but too flat to bonk our heads on when brushing our teeth. Boy, they must have really started to cut corners when your unit was built.
