Nice work! It's funny how quickly we start seeing potential "improvements" in our campers. I really liked the back splash as it makes it look high end. BTW, are your pictures mirrored as in out 17FQ the stove is left of the sink?

Do a forum search for the more ideas like these. Drawers, shoe shelf, LED lighting, etc.

Amazon- Camco model 43554. It's actually for the 3 burner model but it covers the whole area perfectly and increases counter space. It's hinged so if you need to use one burner you can flip it up. They also have a 2burner cover that fits but only covers the stove top, not the counter behind the stove top.

Here are some little things I did. Well, except for wiring in the thermostat. That took some doing. But the magnet bar was like $3 at Harbor Freight, the TV from Walmart for $100, the mount from Amazon for $12, 15" wheels and tires $250 but I sold the original 13" wheels and tires on Craigslist for $200.

OK, it's time you stopped sneaking into our camper to take pics of improvements made. I mean REALLY we have done everyone of those to ours and other than brand name on the thermostat it looks the same well except the magnet.

Gotta say I do like the tile back splash gonna have to look into that.

LOL!

We did put a little fridge/freezer in there as well. It's not very big - 1.4 cubic feet but it can be set to be either a refrigerator or a freezer. Plug it into 110v and it puts the Dometic to shame.

I also ordered a bunch of these little mesh net storage pockets that I'm going to stick on the cabinets at the head of the bed. They are very inexpensive but look almost OEM when I put them in my Jeep.

So far the frig is working to SWMBO's liking which is good since the one we had in the R-Pod was junk. Thanks for the link to the mesh, that is something we had talked about finding.
