Let's hear it from the ladies

I don't see many women posting information on the forum. Some of the technical stuff gets boring. Any women out there with thoughts of RVing from a woman's perspective? Decorating and mod ideas? Cooking and recipes? Anything else?

My wife isn't on this forum, so I will respond in her place.
She picked out our trailer. It was her list of "must-haves" that drove our selection. Penny is a quilter and fabric artist and hated almost all of the stock interiors. The first thing she did was go about making quilts, throws, placemats, wall hangings to brighten up the interior.
Here are some examples:

I also had to do some mods to make the bathroom more "woman friendly."
Make up lighting:

Sink cover to facilitate hair curling operations:

Shoe storage:

I think the bath mods were the most important. The 2604WS's lack of counter space and adequate lighting were her only complaints about the trailer.
Hope this is what you had in mind for suggestions,

My must-haves include a couch and a dinette that can seat four adults comfortably, a not-cramped bathroom* and good closet space. Jim is happy to have these things, but might compromise if he were on his own. We hold a Scottish clan booth at a few Celtic festivals in Arizona, and sometimes we invite people over for dinner or drinks - hence my insistence on a couch and a roomy/easy access dinette. I plan on some mods, but as we can't get the Mini Lite 2304 KS we want until the end of the 2015 camping season, I can't make too many specific plans yet. ;-)

*The PUP we have now puts the shower head at the side of the toilet, so you have to sit there and bend over to wash your hair. Better than the outside shower, but ....

Just like things organized. easier for setting up and breaking camp. haven't had a chance to take our roo out yet since weather here in Ohio is brutal right now. been taking days above freezing and getting it loaded. We had a pup and are transitioning from it to the 183. I did have Bruce add plate rail above the bathroom cabinet so we can sit things there without them falling off, always have to add a pop up tissue holder.. added wire stacking shelves so I have room for smaller spices etc in cabinet above kitchen sink and was able to put one in dish cabinet, in order to not carry everything in this camper I have started a tote for each grandchild with their sleeping bag hiking boots, back packs etc, then if only one goes we grab the tote and set it in the camper. can't wait to get camping will try to have pictures as summer goes on. Hoping this cold weather is out of here in March! I do want to add the drawer to the night stand as soon as my carpenter neighbor heals from knee surgery.
