Nice job! What did you use to secure the tiles and seal the wall?

Nice tile job! How did you deal with the metal window frame and round corners?

Nice job as well! Now what did you use for adhesive? Tile mastic or thin set? Can't imagine the strength needed to hold the tiles with all that movement. Let me know as I would like to try tiling mine.

I would think you would use a mastic and a flex grout.

Ya, who was the one who came up with the mirrors around the stove area. Obviously someone who never ate bacon!

So the first two pics are the leveler boxes I made. Made from stainless and welded together. I have a wide stance trailer and didn't want to deal with the Lego blocks. Also didn't want to have to put dirty wet nasty boards in the pass thru.

Second is my solution to my 18 month old trying to escape. It's on the screen door

Last is the bulkhead. I installed a wii console in the lower right cubby and fished the receiver up to the tv turn table. The tv and fireplace both rotate so they can be seen in the master. The wire runs from below tv up into the roof area and down the right side of the bulkhead. PIA but it was worth it. Now we can play wii from bed or stream movies since the pick up spins with tv.

Also installed a TP holder and towel rack in bathroom. Paper towel holder in kitchen and installed reverse lights on the back of trailer and at the fore and aft of the axles and at all 4 stabilizer pad locations. Also added more running lights down sides of trailer. One in the middle wasn't enough for me. Switched tail lights to led. And black reflective tape on the black rub rails down the sides and back of trailer

Future mods:
Reverse camera on rear of trailer. It will tie into the existing truck back up camera system.

It's a known fact that Interior Designers charge so much per hour that they can well afford to eat out all the time. They're making bacon & not cooking bacon. Duh!

Re: tile grouting. Use the no-mastic, no thin-set method now in vogue. It's available at any home-improvement store. It's basically a cut-to-fit super stickly fly paper. You press tile into adhesive & go straight to final grouting. No more 2-day job!

Solution: remove window trim, take suction cups off and tape screen to windshield gasket with duct tape. Hint, use painters tape to get it in position first, remove wrinkles and then secure with the duct tape. Project cost: fifty cents worth of duct tape and one hour
i see you use the same wiper protectors that we do, I love the pipe foams, inexpensive and not a big deal if they blow away

OK more pics and info on my tile job. Thanks for your patience. After removing the old mirror and double face tape, I scraped off any residue from the tape to make sure I had a smooth surface. I used a new product from Home Depot called "Tile Setting Matt". It really is just a large sheet of double faced tape which comes with instructions and easy to use. I removed one protective side of each matt and placed it on the wall. I then removed the other protective surface and placed my glass and ceramic tile on this side, applying pressure and making sure everything is in the right place on the first try. Once on the tile setting matt it is almost impossible to remove the tile. I removed the window frame and placed the tile around it to make sure once the frame is reinstalled it will sit atop of the tile and no edges are showing. Using this type of glass tile allows me to remove pieces as needed around corners and electric plugs. I used my diamond tile saw to form shapes as needed also. After all tile was in place, I then used premixed grout which can be applied immediately. I waited at least two days for it to setup before I used a spray on sealer. All my glass tile and ceramic trim molding was purchased at Home Depot. My total costs for this project was around $350. Shortly after this mod to our DSDP we made a roundtrip drive north of 3,000 miles and nothing moved or broke. Thinking of something similar now for the bathroom.
