Thanks much. I'm not bashful about copying. Just looked around my scrap pile and found some wire shelving just like you used for your storage add. Coming attraction for me. Well done. It's little things like you are doing that makes a rig "your rig" and fun to operate.

Dog Kennel

I am about to purchase a Legacy 340BH (take delivery next Friday). My plan is to remove the bottom bunk and make that space into a large wire dog kennel. I am just wondering if anyone has ever done anything like this and maybe give me some tips and pointers.

I have a 11 year old border collie that needs to be crated when we are not around.

Another mod we want to do is put a dishwasher under the stove top, has anyone done this? Any tips?

Don't think removing the bottom bunk would be all that difficult.

As for the dishwasher under the cooktop those are your two biggest drawers in the kitchen and if there is one thing we find difficult with the 340bh is the lack of a pantry. Actually it is more of an issue for my wife. Is there a way to incorporate the dishwasher into the bottom bunk space with the kennel?

Enjoy the new coach, we love ours!

I loved your idea on creating the storage next to the DEF tank. I had some of that wire shelf material in my scrap pile, now my DEF compartment has storage as well. Thanks for the idea.

We have a 2014 legacy KP and I love the flap on the back. Can you post a pic of how you mounted the flap onto the RV? We have a tow bar and connection we have to be able to reach! Thank you for your help!

the flap doesn't interfere with the hitch at all. we tow as well and it isn't even close to the receiver. If you look under the hitch mount itself where it bolts to coach, there are two steel tabs that stick out horizontally and this is where your rings and chain hang from.

I added some shelving above the propane tank the other day. I am storing my sewer hoses and sewer hose holder in this location along with all the elbow adapters and donuts etc.... Sure did open up a bit of space in the bay next to it. The tub you see is 26''L x 8 3/4 H x 17 3/4 deep.

the space is huge and can fit quite a bit in there. I used a 32' long 18''deep shelf and there is roughly 15'' to the ceiling.

Doesn't interfere with tank are any of the lines or service points.

couple pics for you

psw, did you just lay that wire shelf on top of the propane tank or is attached to brackets you mounted on the inside walls of the bin?

I didn't cut around the pipe. There are a few inches between pipe and flap.

There really isn't any heat issues either, the pipe surprisingly doesn't seem to get all that hot.
