Nice work you didn't happen to drive a Freightliner at one time reminds me of the dash from the one I used to drive.

You should make a standard template where individuals just cut there own holes and sell the blanks. I would definitely be interested in purchasing one.

@T-Rex, I took my inspiration from various place, DP, Trucks, cars... As I'm not very tall, 5' 7", my driver seat is pretty much adjusted very close to the steering and I couldn't see my GPS screen. Very frustrating so from the get go I knew I was going to change the configuration.

So I put a list of things I wanted to include, dedicated monitor for cameras, ScanGauge II, clock, usb chargers and started designing my new cockpit.

When my MH dealer saw the installed console, they took a bunch of pictures and sent them to Forest River. I doubt they will ever put this is production but all I can say, it's vert functional.

Thanks for your note, it would be difficult to make a standard template as there is a lot of work the needed to be done behind the scene to make it look like that. I have used 3/4 inch plywood to make this console and I have to shave the inside in many places to not make the edges too thick. And the front part need to have all wholes cut before starting to assemble it. So the design must be done before assembling.

I've bought all of the parts to make a jig in my shop instead of doing the work inside the MH.

If anyone interested, I have no more use of these parts. I tough about trying to make a few of these but the time needed to make it look like that, perfect match with all my wood inside the MH took me a lot of time.

Unless someone see it first in person and agree that is exactly how they want it, I wouldn't do one to risk not satisfying the end user.

Great job! A lot of detail and patience. Very smart to purchase a factory console. Make sure you patent it. Lol.
