Modifications that I saw at the '08 Rally

Well, now I'm in a pickle. I was shown so many wonderful, neat, useful modifications that I am ready to impliment, and.................... I seem to have forgotten many of them.

I should have taken pictures.

I will eventually attempt to cut holes in my entertainment center to put the drawers behind the stereo to get use of that huge wasted space.

Going to add a second shelf in cabinet under stove (I have no oven)

Oh Well, off to Lowes I go &

Awww, Miss Kitty, I am trying to talk Drew into adding a muffler to our next coach!

I looked out the window of the Que and couldn't believe you had a muffler on your RV!!!! (Remember I was blonde for almost 30 years )

Well, as most know, I bought my coach to keep it as original as possible...BUT!

Getting up at 5:30ish is just plain torture! So, I'm allowing one mod to happen . I don't want to replace the blinds. Though they are terrible, the plan is to find some fabric that will velcro up inside the valance (on the inside of the blind) to block out the light. By the end of the weekend, 6236 looked like a Forest River product with all the towels and blankets hanging from the valances! Hopefully we'll be successful with finding a fabric to match. I'll report back whenever it gets done, but we do have a year.

Pam, you mentioned about awning clamps. What kind were you talking about? I had my custom made ones that I just finished for last weekend, but I don't think I ever mentioned them to anyone, and I don't recall anyone seeing them. If you are interested in them, I'd be glad to get some pics. I was given the idea from a friend who got it from a full time workamper and they've been proven to handle some pretty harsh wind.

Hey Jon,

You might want to consider "spring tension" curtain rods in place of the velcro. I have found that the self-adhesive velcro does have a tendency to "slip/slide" when exposed to very warm temps. I have spring tension rods in the 2499 under my valances and they stay in place and have traveled a LOT of miles as you know. They would not alter the "ORIGINAL" window treatments.

Take a pillow or cushion with you when your fabric shopping, it will make matching/corresponding the fabrics easier. Also compare the match inside the store and near the door/window as it will vary.

Good Luck

Kitty

Jon,

Why not consider replacing the blinds with Day/Night shades? They were an OE option and I have to say that I like them a lot. The only place I get light in the bedroom in the morning is the door glass and the roof vent. I'm definitely getting a cover for the vent!

We ordered the awning deflappers from CampingWorld, (Awning DeFlapper MAX (26873) 1 @ $17.99) but would still love to see pics of yours Jon. Steve always likes to make something rather than buy it!!! and who knows how long these will last.

For the bedroom door window I found a table runner that was exactly the width of the window, cut it to length and hemmed the top. Then used stick on velcro at the top to attach it to the door. Aaahhh...privacy and light probem solved for $6
