Got our 1997 Bounder (30) in December. Finally got the cover off it last weekend (and now its snowing again...GRR). Mainly oil change so far, but found our antenna to be bad so ordered a replacement from wingaurd. New shocks came in today along with a new steering damper. Lots of planned upgrades once we get the main items working

We've changed a ton of things in the 4+ years we've had our Beaver. Residential fridge, new convection/micro, pure sine wave inverter, new window treatments, "Tiffany style" sconces, LED lighting, TVs, audio system, etc, etc

What I find amusing are the number of people who feel obligated to remove the cabinet hardware and bathroom fixtures because "brass isn't in these days." Some folks don't realize that all that sort of stuff goes in and out of favor on a pretty regular basis. As recently as ~17 years ago we paid a lot extra in a new home to get all brass trim in the master bath. The brass in our MH looks great with its walnut cabinetry made out of solid wood. I'll put my "old fashioned" cabinetry up against the particle board junk installed in so many new MHs. At least my cabinets don't fall off the walls when we go over bumps, nor do the kitchen drawers break because we've put too much into them. I can live with them being out of fashion; I have enough self confidence not to care.

I understand what you're saying, but the neither the wife nor I either one ever did like the polished brass look. We've always done antique brass in the past, but more recently we both have come to like the brushed or satin nickel look. Its just part of decorating.

Jerry on the bedroom TV here's what I did. The counter top is granite and I screwed a piece of 3/16" aluminum plate to the wall studs and mounted a flat screen wall mount to the plate. A 28" TV fits perfectly in that spot.


Craig, Thanks for the info. That's a great looking installation. My layout is quite different. TV is in a cabinet directly over the window. I think I finally made a decision on what I'm going to do. I just ordered a flip up ceiling mount that I will mount to a brace I'll install inside the cabinet area. Then I will put a DVD player on the shelf below the TV and possibly a ZVOX 220 sound bar under the TV as well. Its a relatively small area, so the best I can do is a 22" TV. Its plenty large for the bedroom.
