17 Wolf Pup made wife friendly

Here is the start of my wife's make over and my "Honey Do..."

Things we want:

1. Mattress on bottom and top beds
* found out that Original Mattress Factory will custom build any of their line of beds for an additional $50. I can send them the measurements or bring by the toy hauler and they will send out a couple guys to the parking lot to do it all for no additional charge.
* I also would to add hinges and hydraulic lift to bed frame to access water tank and pump. I have two fresh water tanks.

2. Recover sofa and pillow with Micro-Suede
* fabric is on order

3. New Curtains
* fabric is on order

4. Add Shelves, towel racks, paper towel holder, under the counter coffee maker and grinder, ...and most any other ideas I can get from you!

5. Add the spare wheel carrier from eTrailer

6. Spare propane tank

Remember, we want many, many pictures so that others can give you full credit for the ideas while they steal 'em.

Yes, lots of before and after! I'd especially like to see the seats, are you going to make covers? Mine are especially ugly...

Fabric.... still not here! Snow and ice again! I want a nice day to bring it home and get to work! I'm going to order spare tire hanger from etrailor this week and maybe the Polychute septic hose.

More would have been done this week, but I found some water damage in my house when I moved the fridge.
Installed spare tire mount. It needed some modification as I tok a little different route than the one post in the 19rr thread on here.
Also, managed to take the TH over to be fitted for custom mattress. I will pick that up on Tues..

I picked up the spare today and found I need to add some washers. I also greased (Bel Ray axle/bearing)the safety pin and rails that touch when you swing it open and closed.
I then sprayed silicone grease on the leveling jacks.

Dry camped in NC for two nights. The drive was a little scary through the tornado warnings and severe winds and rain. The drive home was very nice and easy.
The generator ran the 30 amp cord with no problems. I had the tv, water heater, water pump, and fridge all going at the same time. I only used the heater and fan for a few minutes in the morning....as I left a couple of windows open over night.
The toilet is a little high for me and had to put small cooler under my feet....that was funny!
I ran the generator all night and still had plenty of gas in the morning!
