Closet Remodel

After the loft build I tackled the closet. It was the typical RV closet with one long closet rod and no shelves. While ok if you're full timing and need all of your clothes we rarely stay more than a week and storage is always at a premium we decided to remodel our closet for storage. I also added pantry space on the closet doors to try to use wasted space. It turned out great and was only about an hours worth of work.

You might consider interlocking wood flooring with area rugs. The flooring is much more durable , particularly under the slide.

Vinyl flooring is popular (plank look) but, a little trickier than wood to lay.

Your rig looks nice, congratulations.

I used heavy duty closet rods for the cross pieces and plywood with 2x2 wood pieces on either side of the closet rods to hold them in place. I used 3/16 cable and eyelet lag screws for the ones in the front to suspend the front closet rod. My wife and daughter are very happy and it should make camping more enjoyable.
Very innovative and practical. The result looks very comfortable.

Insulated another section of roof, got more ceiling panel installed, finished the last of the bed frame, and built the frames for the partition wall between the cabover and the rest of the camper.

Also finally got my posts a little further up to date.

I got tired of stressing about how long my 6-10 year old tires are going to last so went and had 6 new Firestone Transforce HT tires put on. No price for peace of mind...

My temperature gauge was erratic.I bought a new sensor at Oreilys $15.Old one came out easy new one went in just as easy. Drained the antifreeze.Some thread sealant on the last few threads and so far so good.

My wife and I layed down plywood for our bed and bench. Paneled the sides of the bench and wired in a couple outlets. We got most of our trim pieces together and made a few cuts before we ran out of light. I think we might get to spend our first night in her tomorrow night!



Crazy to think this is how she looked just a couple weeks ago!

Had a lot of things happen since it warmed up here in MI and didn't get around to washing the rig until today. Wow was she dirty!

Got on the roof, scrubbed and scrubbed to get rid of the sap that had dripped there from one CG and the dirt from another that made dark spots all over. Washed it all off and it looks white and shiny again.

Washed the rest of it and it just shines. I deoxidized it last year and put on 4 to 5 cots of Zep floor wax and it still looks great! No sooner got done and it rained. Not upset, we have been in a drought and we badly need it. I would wash it again if we got more rain.

Also added a HD adapter to the bat wing antenna. Will go out later and test it out to see if it adds any other channels.

Glad to have that job done for the summer. Going camping next weekend and now that the dust is rained down a bit maybe it will stay clean for a while.

Today was a real fun one. We built a cat observation deck!
I felt bad that our cats have been restricted to such a small space. I figure this should help a bit. They seem to love it! There's been at least one cat out on it since we put it in.

Gremson,

What a great idea! Yes, your cats will love that. I think they will be out there most of the night when you travel.

I saw a MH one time where they took one of their basement compartments and made a ramp down to it from under their table. They took the compartment door and had another cage type door added just inside to allow them to keep the compartment door up and open and not let the cats escape.

They also put the kitty box down there for easier cleaning and smell reduction. Did not hear the cats scratching in the night either. The cats kept going down there and watching like cats like to do so they added some carpet for them to lay on that can be removed for cleaning. Cats loved it, fresh air, a watching hidey hole, and privacy for business.

Where they built the hole under the table they put a door on it. When moving things in and out of the MH they could close the cats down there so they could not escape. Kept them safe.

Love what you did, kitties appreciate it.
