Grandma if you do not order the table in your new coach to be, the table can be made later.
The name of Corian style is stamped on the under side surface of Corian and you can look under counter for its name, any counter place that makes them can match to your original counters.
You can follow instructions to find your type counter in this link.
I made this combination after we had purchased this coach in 03.

A storage rack I added to the basement area to hold longer items like my fold up ladder, sun screens, extension poles and the like. A length of inexpensive 6" diameter plastic pipe cut in half for the trays, plumbers tape used to suspend them between 1x2 wood strips, and the wood strips attached to the interior of the storage bay. Keeps things a bit more organized and uncluttered for the time being.

Newmar QUICK TIPS & EASY MODS # 3 -- PLUS OLD COACH's

This modification was to add an additional monitor to the rear camera. I wanted to maintain the rear camera view rather than a left or right camera view when passing another vehicle and activating the turn signal to pull back in the lane. In the systems and/or modifications I could find, there was no way to override the systems switching to a side view when the turn signal is activated. So... After a couple false starts and incorrect assumptions, I was able to accomplish this by adding a monitor (which is viewable from both the pilot and co-pilot's seat). My base system is a Voyager three camera system. I got a lot of help and advise from Tim Lazaroe, RV Cams, Inc., Baton Rouge, LA. 877-378-2267 (a Voyager systems distributor). I purchased an inexpensive monitor and a Voyager video splitter cable. I still had to run an independent power source to the alternate monitor (for some reason I could never figure out) as it powered down when a turn signal was activated, yet will stay powered up and displaying the rear camera when the turn signals are off. Oh well... I got a switch from Newmar and used one of the blank spaces in the dash for the secondary monitor power on/off switch.Click image for larger version

Exterior Cat Cage - For Any MoHo

This is a simple fold up cat cage attachment I came up with for our last MoHo, but could be adapted to many (albeit, not the newer style windows). The cage can be any fold up wire cage that can purchased from most pet stores. Just cut the wires mesh out where your window opening will be. The hooks (called 'Boat Hooks') are stainless steel and were mounted via stainless screws to the aluminum window frame, and thus required no drilling into the MoHo exterior surface. Large suction cups on bungee-cord-like cords were used to keep the cage off the side of the MoHo and keep it from scratching the surface. These may also be purchased at boat supply places (as well as other places probably). I've helped several people with pets build these in various sizes over the years.

Wow, I could have used that years ago with my toddlers (some people may have not liked it though). Great job and very innovative.
