Other thoughts... I wish there was a drawer under the Microwave, right now its just wasted space. Also it would be nice it there was a drawer under the bed too. It does have storage space but it's not easily accessible.
I noticed that your unit had a light and a sink mod based on your pictures.
You may want to try Lee's screen door modification.
(Note: I am trying to debug a similar "Magic Mesh" modification on my A128s. It works. My wife and I cut it to fit, etc.. At this time I am having problems with Velcro sticking to the aluminum door frame. The heat causes it to quit sticking. As soon as this is fixed I may post pictures.)
The microwave cabinet looks pretty large. However, the wheel well seems to restrict a great deal of the space. I think that is why FR decided to not put a drawer there. We keep "MUST" items in it. First Aid Kit. Extra flash lights etc. It's still, for the most part, wasted, but now it seems important.
On the A128 models, it would be nice to have access doors on the sides of the back dinette to allow us to get items in and out without rearranging the seats to get to the items without doing the seat cushion "shuffle".
I totally agree. The refrigerator is a pain! While it works great and is a huge asset, it always seems like my wife or I are on our knees trying to find the ??? or !!! in it.
As stated by a previous message. The unit has a number of plus's and minus's. The minus's make you think "What can I do to get around this?". This seems to be a fun part of the experience for me.
