After market items

Does anyone know of a company that makes after market items for the aframes? It would be nice to be able to buy cabinets, shelves ect. and not have to make it yourself or modify things.

There is nothing that I know of and I feel your pain.

Within the camper world, A Frames are such a small and low-end market with so much variation I doubt there is anything that can be just bought and installed. Anything must be modded or custom built but some things can work with very little modding involved.

I have many ideas for cabinetry and small mods but am short on the skills and tools needed to carry them out and unwilling to invest for one off jobs.

The problem with purchasing cabinets is they'd have to fit thru the 21 inch doorway. You'd have to build inside the trailer. IKEA has many small furniture items that would fit in an A-Frame but I wouldn't want to deal with the tear out. Mods are kind of a fun challenge in the small trailer. Lol

What changes are you wanting to do to yours, Mgtann?

Not necessarily. I did it a different way with our T21QBHW. I set up the A-frame, then put the curbside wall back down, and had the larger "stuff" passed in to me to set in the dinette area. Then I put the curbside wall back up. It beats trying to fit stuff through a small door. Just be careful to protect the curbside wall from scratches...

Wayne, Would enjoy seeing what you've done inside your A-Frame!
