Fireplace looks nice!! I'm also jealous that you have a perfect spot for coat hooks and shoes underneath. Our Class A really has no such space. Shoes get piled up (family of 4) in the driver's space near the accelerator and brake pedals, and coats... well...they just get tossed wherever. That drives me nuts!

Finished the remodel of the living room slide, removed the booth dinette and installed a credenza and freestanding dining table with chairs last summer.
Today was removing the jack knife uncomfortable couch and replacing with a Catnapper Wallaway Loveseat Recliner.The Catnapper is much more affordable than the RV furniture we looked at. Was a tight fit getting it through the 24" wide entry door on our 2005 Holiday Rambler Admiral. Looking forward to relaxing in this after a good day of hiking/photography adventures.

Beats baby sitting your wash at the local laundry mat, which of course will always be in the best of neighborhoods. We also found that many campground laundry facilities were not the best equipment, or the best maintained.

We love our W/D. Even though it takes a while, we don't have to worry about taking enough cloths.

Mounted a 12ft LED strip light under the passenger side of the 5er. Got it from Batteries+Bulbs for about $60. Was 16ft but can be cut at 6in intervals. Came with a remote. Had to use some mounting clips (for screens or mirrors) since the mastic did not hold very well. It has a lot of different colors and flashes. Looks very nice at night. Think I may have to mount strips on each side of the truck. Some folks have told me this may not be legal in all states?

I know of an upgrade we would like to figure out. A ramp for the dogs. We have one but it's almost impossible to use when you have to go down the stairs and they have to use the ramp. Need to find a sturdy ramp to hold dogs and person at the same time yet easily foldable for storage. Or find one goes along the side of the steps. We have to figure something out. We have 3 dogs. Little dogs but bending over gets old real quick.

Watch haw you climb stairs and notice feet usually only touch edges.

You can add small blocks in center where feet do not go.

For outside area just make a ramp or additional steps to reach the entry next to normal ones and the critters will figure it out.

Use a 6' piece of 2x6. Hinge it in the middle on the underside. Cover the top with non-slip rubber mat with grips going across the board.
This should allow for passage on the side to get up into the RV, give the doggies some grip and fold up for easy storage.

Shouldn't cost more than about $20 max.
