There are some great examples here. Really gets my imagination moving.

Also some great sign-offs; Ex: If you don't know where you're going, any road . . . and Get busy livin' or Get busy dieing.

Anyone ever collect them all for a one stop quoatable quotes page? I know, but I'm going to abuse my newbie status as long as you folks allow.

Our floorplan came with a computer desk on the rear wall adjacent to the entertainment center (RE = rear entertainment unit). It works just fine with my Dell laptop.

Spur, your post will be bad news for my husband to be! That is one sweet setup, and your Contessa floorplan is almost the same as our Marquis floorplan, that desk would be Perfect in our coach. So, uh oh, gonna have to look into that!

Currently, I usually have the laptop on the dining table, printer on the shelf by the dining table, unless I bring it to the co-pilot seat on my lap to amuse Tony with fun facts or Trivia!

I'm sure Beaver would add the desk to your Marquis with no problem. That Marquis is one beautiful coach.

We ordered our coach with no sofas in the living area. Instead we purchased two "euro" loungers and had storage built to match the existing cabinetry. This cabinetry provides pullout tray's that will hold keyboards or laptops, in addition to a file drawer, shelves and wine storage. Also holds a desktop tower and a printer. Pictures can be seen at our website under the "What are we doing now?" link.

bsavage......I'm sure there are cabinet makers out there that do good work. The only one we dealt with was Davis Cabinetry in Junction City, OR. They are very good and reasonable. Did some work on one of our previous coaches.

I see you're from AZ. We'll be back out in the AZ area by Nov. Can't wait. I'm not too keen on the East coast humidity. By OCT. we'll be in NM for the balloon festival and then working our way to AZ and SoCal for the winter. We do a Beaver Rally in Quartzsite in Jan. Come on out.

Monaco Mama,

I've been wondering the very same thing. There's not a lot of room in the SFT, unless you remove the curb-side sofa, but Suz just loves the J-lounge we have in there.

I saw this laptop table at camping world. I was wondering if there might not be some way to use it either with the driver's seat turned around, or in the bedroom in front of the washer/dryer cabinet along side the shelves next to the window.

If you end up with any good ideas, please let me know what you came up with.

Robin,
'07 Diplomat SFT

PS... If you don't have a washer/dryer installed, you could have a cabinet maker build a nice desk/computer station in that space.

We travel in a 25' Sunline TT and use two computers. One is a laptop that will sti anywhere we need it. The lap top uses a Broadband Card to keep us connected.

The main desktop is housed in a cabinet we custom made in the living room. Here is what the cabing looks like and the main tower is on the right. We use a wireless keyboard and mouse and the 32" plasma is the monitor.

Hi Spur... we may stop by Quartzsite next year, although we'd probably be just "passing through". If we do, I'll let you know!

Every miles a memory... that is also a gorgeous cabinet! Really nice!

Robin_M ... no washer dryer in the rig ...but I would prefer to have it up front... I sometimes will stay up later than Sacs...plus I do keep the Pins crate right there in that corner ...
I am thinking we might lose the smaller sofa on the passenger side. (Sacs actually prefers that sofa because he has a corner he can lean on ...so I would have to find something that would work for him also...

Hi MM,

We had them take out that smaller sofa and switch in a J-lounge. It's a deep brown in kind of a plushy soft leather-like fabric - almost a sweade. That belongs to Suzanne. She just LOVES to sit in that J-nook with her feet up when watching TV or reading.

So that option's out for me.
