We took the trailer back to the dealer and they fixed everything on it.It looks great so I couldn't be happier.The carpet I got was at lowes and it was .50 cents a square foot so I think it cost me like 23 dollars to carpet both the front storage area and rear.I had noticed on my brothers he didn't do anything and his storage area is all marked up from stuff sliding around when towing.

Any creative ideas for the cupboards? Stacking wire baskets? The lack of drawers is a challenge, although the magnetic strip for knives is a great solution. If you just put a silverware tray down, it's wasted space unless you stack.

I got a bunch of these little guys at Home Depot for $1 each. Six of them fit under the sink in two stacks of three with room for a coffee pot and toaster.

I've put several more of them in the overhead above the dinette area. Keeps things nice and organized and maximizes space.

The cupboards should have come with shelves. Because the doors are smaller than the cabinets it's pretty much impossible to add standard full-width shelves. I build some self supporting shelves (think of an upside down U) to help add storage space.

" The lack of drawers is a challenge" Yes, it is. That's why I and several other members built a drawer where Coachmen should have put one.

I wrote up some instructions on how I went about building mine.
