Here goes, sorry the drawing is kind of a mess, the one I used was on a paper plate that I scribbled out during happy hour on our last outing! Was a little tricky getting the clearance figured out for the sink.

One missing item from the parts list is the plastic drawer slides for the outer edges of the facia. Damned if I can find them on a website but they are common little items always near the drawer slides at either Lowes or Home Depot. Need those so there is no wood to wood contact if the drawer moves side to side.

The single undermount roller slide works well with not much more friction than the good side mount slides the other drawers have.

The drawer can be constructed without slotting the sides so the bottom fits in but I decided to go the more time consuming route and slot the sides, made for a cleaner finish.

Hope this helps.

Looking a 5ers and DPs and the Legacy 340KP is on the short list.

Any comments on livability for full timing and/or cold weather?

Thanks, enjoying your mods.
Sorry I just noticed your post.
That cabinet is located on the upper right side of the coach forward. Is right behind a retractable bed over the drivers seats. Most all motorhomes come with the entertainment center just a pile of "stuff" in a cabinet and it must be finished post manufacture since everyone wants something different. Since I am an avid DIY guy, I just shared what I came up with, all assembled with velcro for easy service.

For the record we love our Legacy, drives like a dream, gets 11 mpg, we are happy campers. We have had several 5th wheels over the years, just getting older and decided to change. Our longest trip in this new rig is 3 weeks, will be leaving for the east coast mid August for a couple months. No reason to think we won't be comfortable. The guys at the factory have been great to work out any issues getting the normal bugs out. I would buy another one based on what we have seen.

Great. Thanks for the reply. We're going to look at a 340BH tomorrow. Not interested
in the BH but the floor plan is basically the same as far as the living dimensions go. Just need DWs seal of approval and a 340KP will be in our future.

Perfect strategy. DW should like the pantry, and under seat storage. Washer dryer is very convenient and works great.

That is our one and only complaint with the BH floor plan. We wish it had a tall pantry style cabinet in kitchen.

I think Forest river could do this if they wanted to or thought of it.

PSW757, did you install the awning cover yourself? If you did, how difficult was it?

I didn't install it. When we bought coach I told dealer I wanted it before we took delivery along with my sat dish.

Like you I couldn't believe it didn't come with one. I think they are worth it , especially if it saves your awning from an errant branch!

Looks better too imo.

Third picture is the shade pro vista shade. awning is about two feet from being all the way extended due to where it is parked in my driveway at the moment but you get the idea. The fabric hands from channel on roller and rolls up with awning. you can use it like that or the larger 6ft other secion zips to this and gets staked or bungeed to the ground. Creates a much larger shaded patio and helps keep coach cooler. material is similar to magna shade but thinner and lighter. unzips very quickly if needed for a storm/heavy winds.

fourth picture are the black mounts on ladder for my flag pole buddy fiberglass telescoping ladder. extends to fly two flags 18-20ft above coach.

any questions let me know
First Carefree awning cover I have ever seen. I am very interested as well and will be researching a bit.
