Bought on Overstock a new mattress of thick memory foam (way comfortable now), 3 separate 6 pack holders fit under the bathroom sink for soaps, sunscreens & bugspray, a thermocell does a great job to keep us bug free under the awning.
This camper has way more storage space than I could ever imagine but putting shelves in that space next to the fridge sounds like a great idea (right now I just stack a couple plastic storage containers). Wish the 3 sets of speakers could be balanced a little better for outside sound. We have camped a long weekend every month since our purchase 2 years ago ....

Great ideas. May have to steal a couple of those.

I have this same trailer. I love it..Someone will break the screen door handle on the inside. crazy design. $19 ordered from FR. Easy to replace. Have one in your bucket. Bought one of these shoe racks for the bathroom door. Works great for shoes and anything else that will fit in the cubbie holes. Studio 3B™ Over-the-Door 20 Shoe Organizer - BedBathandBeyond.com. I know you said you will not use your shower. I don't either but from time to time I need to. I installed these to keep the water in the shower. They work great. Have to trim a little bit to fit and caulk well. Magic Large Splash Guard for Tubs and Showers-3003 - The Home Depot I put my toilet paper holder on the inside of the vanity door. Something like these on the sides of the cabinets next to the bed. Rubbermaid Unbreakable Wall Files Letter Size Pack Of 3 by Office Depot & OfficeMax On the bedside tables, I found baskets that fit on about half of that space and nailed trim pieces to hold them there for books or whatever so it won't slide all over in transit. I found some thicker material and lined the back side of the curtain so the trailer isn't a fish bowl at night. Condensation will happen when it is cold. The pillows that fit up in the fan/vents work great. If you put the front window cover down at night, that helps too. The closet by the door seems to get pretty wet in there...just in condensation conditions. Get a dry bag, or you can buy a real jack cover for a lot more, for your tongue jack. I found a perfect white dry bag at Walmart for less than ten bucks. Get some good tools for changing the tire. The ones that came with the trailer are a joke. The lugs on the tires are not the same size as the bolts on the spare. Hopefully this was just a mistake made on mine but I doubt it..on my side, there are 2 bolts that hold the shaft between the slide and the motor. On the slide end, they didn't use a long enough bolt and the stress was on the threads rather than the shaft part of the bolt. It snapped within the first year. Awkward to change but not hard. Requires 2 people. I now keep a handful of those bolts in my bucket. Have the little square headed screwdriver bits with you. I put a container in part of the drawer over the heater with pieces of PVC cut to put silverware in. The PVC stands up in the container. I took that 500 lb table out of the trailer and got a lighter, less bulky fold up table. TV tray works well in back of the couch too. Probably more but that's all I can think of right now. Love this little trailer. I bought a Tacoma to pull it too..Not enough truck for me. The Tundra does a much better job. The difference between DRIVING it and riding. Gas mileage is actually better in the Tundra.

Did you wire in the LED lights over the bed or battery? and how did you do the motion light over the switch panel? Do you have your generator mounted somewhere? Would love to read a more detail on the generator set up.

I traded in a 2008 Tundra crewmax limited on the 2015 tacoma. It had the 4.7. The tacoma actually pulls it better. The 5.7 is a whole different animal. I still have my 2000 tundra with 250K on it. I will tow it with this sometimes. Thanks for the mod ideas. We camp at st andrews and st joe park alot.

I spliced into the harness (12v) that feeds the light that's over the bed....The motion light that is over the switch panel operates on aaa battery's it puts out just the right amount of light and fits neatly under the edge of counter top....As of the generator I'm still working on that but have the transfer switch under the bath vanity. I supported the rear bumper with support brackets from MOUNT-n-LOCK and plan on using a cargo carrier mounted to a 2'' receiver tube to carry the generator on. I definitely will keep a close watch on the bumper and the welds. The motion light was purchased on E-Bay

Great ideas

These are great ideas. May borrow a couple of them. I have ordered some motion lighting for a couple of spots and especially over the control panel. Something the manufacturer should have thought about.

Thanks again for your help.
