TropiCal Storage idea

We have an '04 TropiCal. I replaced the rear TV with an LCD unit, and the new TV pretty much works like a cabinet door. I've gained a nice bit of storage area, but the shape isn't the greatest for easy access - it is basically a rectangle, but with one corner cut off at a 45 degree angle (where the TV now hangs).

I went into the home kitchen to find a can of soup and got the inspiration to mount a lazy susan inside the former TV cave. The washing machine cabinet directly underneath is also the same shape, so the idea should work in both.

I have tons of other priorities and won't get to this little project until next year, but I thought I would share (and maybe someone else will blaze the trail for me in the meantime).

I am not sure about the lazy susan, but it's your project so have at it!
I built a door that lifts vertically and mounted a 19 inch Vizio in it.
I added a shelf and keep cowboy hats in it!
Our W/D is opposite the bathroom sink.
We have shelves under the tv.

Hmm. Would probably be quicker and cheaper for me to buy a cowboy hat or two.
