Kitchen Remodel

I finished up my Kitchen remodel while my wife was away because I wanted to surprise her. I replaced the counter top with a wood butcher block style I found at Lowes. While I had the old one off, I repainted the upper and lower cabinets a light gray and used a stick on type backsplash to go over the wall board in that area. I made a counter top extension that flips up when we're done with it to make room in the bedroom. Yes , the camper is that small. I also used the cutout parts of the counter top top make a folding stove top cover and sink cover. we really needed more countertop/ prep area.While I was at it I ended up painting the cook top and range hood because they didn't match. Time will tell if the high temp paint will hold up. It looks good now anyways. I had removed the upper bunk over the dinette previously and made a shelf to hold some storage crates I bought online. WE have no plans to use the bunk and we were stuffing duffel bags in that cabinet for clothes storage. These crates make it so much easier to get what you need.

Thanks, John. I'm pretty happy with it. Now I'm going to buy another piece of the butcher block and make a new Dinette table and repaint that area. A little bit at a time.

My T1700 had the same bunk setup I removed the center panel flip up the front one with the hatches in it and fastened it to the ceiling gave me a good bit of storage and mounted a radio in the center.

Yes, that's what I did to the rear bunk over the bed. We use it for stuff we don't need to access everyday like heavier jackets and extra blankets. We were using the front bunk to store duffel bags with our everyday clothing in it. It was a pain, trying to get those out and rummage thru them everyday, So I thought I would try the open setup with the boxes. 2 trips with them so far and nothing has fallen out, and I'm liking the ease of access.

Thumbs up

These are some good ideas, thanks for the inspiration. I'm in the midst of remodeling my primary Solaris and obtaining a gutted-ready-for-remodel secondary Classic, so I will be coming back to this!

Also, saw your other thread started about refinishing/resurfacing the cooking stove. Did you use John's link or come up with another solution?

I actually just sanded , cleaned and painted it with high temp paint. It looks really good, but time will tell how it holds up.

Wow! This looks very nice. I love your ingenuity!

stove hood

Has anyone installed a vented hood in their Sunline? Are the wall studs spaced for a vented system? I own a 2006 T-2753 Classic
Thanks Jack

When I bought the camper it needed some refreshing so in the middle of a Maine winter I cranked up the heat and had at it. Fortunately my wood shop was close to the garage. Having no earthly use for an oven I now needed a larger counter so that is where the fun started. If a picture is worth a thousand words here is two thousand.

Looks nice, but I'm Italian, I have to, no love to cook and it just gets too hot. Our other camper that fell victim to a crazed Camero driver had a vented hood and we were able to bake without it being unbearably hot.....

I can boil water pretty well for morning coffee so most of my "cooking" is outside and simple and it gave me a nice spot for TV/computer monitor.
