Computer desk picture

I am looking for a picture of the optional computer desk WRV installed in our coaches, or any upgrades you have done. Thank you in advance.

We had this one made by a company in Spokane as part of our interior renovation.
The TV is on a lift and drops into the cabinet. The All in One computer goes onto a sliding drawer in the middle door.
The RH Door has a sliding drawer that holds our printer. On the LH side is a File Drawer and shelf with a screened door the holds the Sat Reciever.
The far right is a Corian slide out for the keyboard. We have two Lazyboys across from the desk that replaced the original hide a bed.

We had our interior remodel done last month at Amazing Creations in Junction City, OR, including replacing the carpeting with vinyl flooring, removing the PS couch, and installing a custom 2-workstation computer/sewing desk, plus extended kitchen drawers, etc. The desk has 2 laptop pull-out trays with flip-down covers, drawers in the center, and a flip-up extension. The box on rollers is a storage container for my wife's sewing machines, and it rolls out to double as a coffee table, or can be moved against the wall between the desk and dining table. There is a channel at the back of the desk for power strips and wiring to keep it organized and out of sight. We use 2 of our 4 dining chairs at the desk when in camp. It is made with ash to match our original woodwork, and we are very pleased with its look and functionality. The first picture shows the installed desk. The second photo shows one of the extended laptop trays.

I believe the PO purchased our coach with the computer desk option. It was basically a rectangular cabinet with 3 - drawers and a angled top where you could pull out a keyboard. My account wife was on contract for some time after retiring. The desk didn't really work out very well for her & I never used it. Probably the biggest reason was that we use laptop computers so the keyboard pull out was useless. We'd also have to shift chairs around every time she wanted to use the desk. The Euro recliner chair became a nuisance.

The cabinet was high enough that you could place a chair under the angled edge of the cabinet. However, this makes sitting in the passenger chair rather awkward for conveniently sitting drinks on top with the chair turned inward for social purposes.

We had our coach remodeled in Florida. The desk was shortened and the angle / keyboard pull out removed. It now contains a file drawer and a small upper drawer. The PO had install cabinets along the curb side including around the kitchen table. There's plenty of storage!

We also use a side cabinet next to the desk cabinet to house an HP D1500 printer that fits nicely with trays collapsed. It stays powered from within the desk cabinet. We feed the USB cable up through the back of the desk cabinet for easy use. My wife now uses the kitchen table as a "desk". She's happy so obviously I'm happy.

If you want any pictures let me know.
