first rule of planning mods; do not share with your better half until its finished. Same rule apply at home!! Sometimes I wish I couldn't even hang a picture right; know what I mean? As far as the lack of counter space in the hyperlites; you can tell a man designed the trailer with no eye to for the kitchen. The 30HDS is better.

I had similar ideas, but wanted my table. I bought a pre made laminate at Lowes and cut it down to make a pull out counter, stove cover with cutting board, and fold down counter. I used fold up beverage holders with arms to keep spills down at the couch.



Not a perfect match, but no one has noticed yet. The cup holders fold up when not in use so they don't get in the way at all. Bought 'em on Amazon.




I went with soft close drawer slides on the pull out counter. It hasn't come open at all during travel and it stays open when parked. We added closing it to our pack and leave checklist because if it's out, you really wouldn't want to close the slide!




Draw pull, 4' pre laminated counter, eve support, drawer slide, and hinge came from lowes. Also in the first pic you might notice I swapped out the faucet for a nice residential pull out, also from lowes. The cutting board over the cooktop is from blood bath and beyond.

Thanks for idea to split the sink cover. That will happen tonight!

the fold up counter looks great just like PH's did you get the folding bracket at lowes also ? i need to get on this mod as counter space is non existence in the 29.
i wish i could do it at the end of the counter past the sink but the controls for lights awning etc are there . i really don't use the door there only when bike is loaded when on the road . otherwise it's always the garage entry door . when the bike is out the garage serves as a office and mud room

Actually, looking back at my lowes app, I think I bought the leaf support at the local do it best hardware store. But it's the same as the OP used. I only used one because I used a much shorter counter. It was rated to support 40lbs as I recall.

I thought about installing over the switches at entry but it also blocks bedroom access. And I use that entry door too.
