Had Bruce Deaton paint all four slide out end caps to match body on our Phaeton.
Installed an AFFF fire suppression system in engine bay and generator compartment.
Swing out/tilt TV mount for outside TV.
Changed out original single hung PS window for a one piece none opening window.
Changed the dash guage layout so the LBCU can be seen while driving.
Added steering stabilizer to help incase of blow out.

Here are a few of the more interesting ones I've done (so far).

First, I built and installed three 44" deep x 32" wide storage trays on 500lb drawer glides.

Second one was plumbing enhancements. Added an accumulator to smooth out water flow. Changed out the crappy, stiff water hose and spray head for a flexible connection hose and put a multi spray head on it. It works 1000% better than the original. Didn't want to store the fresh water hose in the wet bay, so I made a hanger out of a shelf bracket and a piece of 4" PVC in the electrical bay.

Third, I installed a 0.5 micron 3M Filtrete filtration system next to the sink, which is supposed to filter out 99.99% of cysts, sediment, sand, soil, silt, rust, etc.

Fourth one is LED lighting controlled by RF controllers with three zones so far. Haven't decided what to do with the fourth zone yet.

Stay tuned, there may be more to come later.

In preparation for full timing we did this..

We hated the fabric cornices and lambrequins that came with the coach. And don't even mention the pleated shades! They were hideous and ugly. We removed them ourselves and made our own cornices and installed them with new MCD duo shades throughout the whole coach.
We never did like the opposing sofas so we had both of them removed. On the drivers side, we purchased 2 Lazy Boy Recliners and had them installed.
On the passenger side, we had that sofa removed and had a custom built entertainment center with a 40 inch Samsung installed on a motorized lift. We have a Sonos sound bar at the bottom of the TV that gives us our stereo sound.
We had the TV removed over the dash and had insulation added in the area before the cabinet was built and installed.
There is more that was done at this time and will post photo's later.
We are now full timing and living in the Bus. We love our mods and made it ours. We just could not justify buying a newer/different motorhome and still having to do some mods to it as there just wasn't anything out there at the time that we would consider.

Proud new owner

We have moved up in the world. We have just purchased our first class A. We purchased a 2013 Tiffin 32' Allegro Breeze. We are so excited. I suggested to my husband that we should probably look into buying a cover to protect the RV from the elements. Any suggestions?
Happy in Idaho

Lt. Dan, I'll bake you some pepperoni rolls if you could put those LEDs on my coach! Shiny!

Has anyone installed a bed over the cab of a 2007 Allegro? We are considering buying a 37' 2007 Allegro but need a bed over the cab.

Built a cabinet to raise the center consul Tiffin cup holders. This is in a 2015 32CA, but others have done similar.

Pop up power strip

I installed this pop up power strip in the kitchen table counter on a 2006 AB 40 QDP. It has 120v plus USB outlets. The outlet under the table was so hard to plug anything into it. You had to stick your head under the table just to see the orientation of the plug. Now all I have to do is pop up the power strip for the laptop or Ipad power. Works great. When I am done or ready for travel I just put it down into the cabinet.

Here is the Amazon product.
