I have the sofa instead of a dinette so I know these cup holders to go on each side of the sofa

Nice! Did you make those or order them from somewhere? How did you fasten them to the wall?

I saw something similar but made them myself out of 3/4" thick (southern) cherry. Fastening... The top and bottom pieces are separated by a 3/4" X 3/4# pine strip painted flat black; countersunk holes through it (4) and screwed to wall with #6 x 1/18 inch drywall screws. If it loosens I can add double-sided tape. I could make a couple more for a phenomenal fee :-)

I still think you must have some Amish blood in you from back somewhere.... Those are nice. Wife already purchased (and I installed) a set of flip-down holders, in the same spot. She prefers the flat black look to most everything, but I like the wood. I guess you all know who wins that battle...

Yeppers, I know how those battles works... I am slow, but I finally got it Mine were made before she had a chance to veto the idea, plus she likes them. I have seen the flip down type, they are handy. I'm going to make dividers in a couple of the "monster" (as FR puts it) pantry drawers, for silverware and whatever, her idea. I also thought about a box or two in the garage with flip-up lids to hold stuff neatly and would give us extra seating, if ever needed. Probably screwed to the floor. I'm so ready to head to North GA as soon as it warms up and do some riding.

Well today I went and pulled a bunch of spare bedding and blankets out of mine. It's stored at the dealer at the moment as I brought it in for some warranty work to be done during the winter.

I do however have a question, for those with a similar TV location setup as me how have you mounted it and what size did you install?? I believe the factory option is a 33" but wondering if anyone with a 30HFS5 has installed their own.

Thanks

Just noticed the PM thing as I was clicking on the thread, thanks for the heads up. I cleared out some space...��

As for the TV: yes, the DW immediately thought that the 32" or whatever TV that came with the XLR was way too small, so we scrapped it entirely in the order and had them credit us that cost. Then I measured the space, and the DW ordered the largest TV that could fit in there (I want to say it was 45" or something.) The key is finding the thin, lightweight TVs (LED) and going with one of those. They have them at BestBuy, but I think it was a better price on Amazon. There's a stud in the center of that wall, I think it's wood, that we had the dealer mount the folding TV bracket to. Then we mounted those "TV straps" at the corners to keep it securely in place while we're moving. I mounted the Dish receiver in its mounting bracket on the wall on the left of the TV (so when the TV bracket folds in close to the wall for travel, there's still enough room behind it for the receiver.)

I'd take some pics, but there's almost 2' of snow between me and the camper at the moment. I will be snow blowing a path out there at some point. Next time I'm out, I'll snap some pics.

EDIT: link to the TV:

No worries about no pic, my trailer is parked for the winter as well. If you can next time your at it though would appreciate it.

Glad I asked and didn't go buy a tv first.
