We had a matching "top hinge" door made for ours. I then finished off the inside, added 2 shoe racks, and now it houses our powered printer, and 2 laptops with cases. Matches the scheme of the 2 adjacent smaller cabinet doors.

I agree with some of the other posts. With space at a premium on most RVs, additional storage would be my choice.

Maybe a fish aquarium, but would take a steady hand at the wheel! I'm sorry

You could always put in a small wine rack. The downward slope might even work by keeping the corks moist. I would make it so the bottles had to be reversed out to avoid that awkward falling bottle thing.

A small safe might fit nicely in the space if you don't already have one. You would still need cupboard doors but it would have the advantage of being somewhere unexpected.

MSHappycampers was the inspiration for us to do ours. A loveseat now sits in front of the TV cabinet. We also have recliners across from the TV. And a dark piece of plexiglass is inserted in the center cabinet.

Thanks everyone for all your ideas. For now I think we will use it for storage and just put a nice looking front on it. Maybe mount a clock or weather gauges or a dry erase board to list all the items needing fixing, haha.

Here is what I did to cover the opening. It is a low cost, maybe under $50, picture frame with smoked plexiglass.
