Tell others about your modifications

Moved into the new cornerstone 45J (moved out of the Aspire) but i wanted to show some of the mods I had Lazydays complete before we moved in. They did a great job and you cannot tell the difference between factory and aftermarket. If you had some mods completed post them for others. Keep the ideas coming. The pictures you are looking at is a medicine cabinet custom made for the bathroom with an additional towel rack attached. Installed it on the wall between slide and fixed wall. Also had a remote controlled ceiling fan installed in bedroom. While talking to others with Entegra's at LD many owners are having mods done to fit their lifestyle. Post them

Great idea. Thanks for posting those photos. I had LD 's do some cabinetry work for me and they also did a great job.

The medicine cabinet is a fantastic idea and I have just the wall for one. Thanks for posting!

Love the ceiling fan! Is it quiet? Who would one speak to at LD to do this?

Wow, looks great! Good idea. Do you know if LD actually fabricated those doors (which look like a perfect match in design and finish) or did they just order them from Entegra (or Entegra's supplier)? It would be good to know if they are available to order for some projects we have in mind.

Edwin is in the woodworking shop at LD. Talk to him. The doors can be ordered at Entegra and they will ship them. The ceiling fan is a 12V and it is quiet.

I found this mod while i was at LD. Anthem with the girard awnings had a ladder installed at LD. Looks great and you would never know it was installed after the fact.

It's my understanding Entegra keeps all of the mounting holes for a ladder on the Anthem should an owner prefer to have a ladder installed, it easily completed without risk of damaging the coach. There is a previous thread that discusses this.

The consensus seemed to be a coach without a ladder 1) looked much nicer and 2) many agreed they didn't need to get on top a) frequently enough to warrant having the ladder physically installed or b) never get on top and just had someone else manage the repairs for them.

IMO I think it's great Entegra at least gives an owner the option.

I guess I don't see the "holes" meant for a ladder if you want one on my Anthem, so I take a relook; however, I've had at least three occasions when I would have like to have had access to the top:
1) once to check the awnings after entirely unexpected wind shift and gustiness before either I or the automatic could get the awning in,
2 and 3) I know the top is filthy from pine pollen from Florida early Spring and Texas dust/snow/sleet/rain storm. I can see it on the curve of the front cap, but just can't quite reach it with an extended wash cloth. So it looks terrible; perhaps it looks worse than having a ladder on the back.

Before any tell me how to deal with it, I just purchase one of the multi-use ladders that extends to 22 feet, or acts as a step ladder, but it is heavy, and ultimately, it will be a pain to stow. By the way, I looked at the telescoping ladders...I think extended to 16 feet to get on top is likely not to stable, given the width.

Not a complaint; I love the lines of my coach, but there are reasons for getting on top that are now tougher without a ladder.

My concern about the telescoping ladder is, what do you lean it on? Won't they scratch? I thought about carrying one just for cleaning but didn't because it would have to lean on the coach.

Holes are covered and painted so not to be an eye sore... But was told they in fact are there

Or any ladder. I'm thinking strap a section of carpet on the section of ladder with bungee cord in the area it will contact the coach. Haven't tried it out, but will do that before trying it.

I tie a beach towel to the top of an extension ladder to eliminate scratching. No issues getting up and over, in fact Id say given the size and angle of the ladder it was easier than my last RV.
