Anyone have a mod for more counterspace 233s?

During our maiden voyage the only thing we realized we needed more of was counter top space. We new going in that it was lacking, but actually using all of it was a bit of a hastle. Has anyone with a 233s or similar TT done a mod to increase the counter top real estate? I'm looking into a few things but haven't put together anything solid. My wife suggested just getting a few tv trays/stands to use for things like the coffee maker or whatever but I don't find that acceptable for our new unit.

We bought a 4' long table that we put in front of the couch. This is our extra counter space & additional eating space when we have more of the family with us. When we need the floor space the table stands up on end against the right side of the fridge.

We also use a 4' long narrow table when needed. Mainly for extra eating room.
I don't like to cook inside so I place towels over the glass stove cover and use that as my extra counter space. What I find frustrating is no electrical outlet except down on the floor next to the stove. Makes it hard to plug a coffee pot in.

Counter space

Exactly why we choose the 23IKSS after looking at many Roo models. Was looking at the 21ss first, then the 233ss but soon realized that the counter space was minimal.

My opinion, not much you can do. Some folks have taken the little flip up night stand shelf near the middle bed, and mounted it in front of sink area. We still do our old pop up style, and enjoy setting up some stuff outside on a couple small tables. I even like to keep my coffee pot out there... I try to maintain the outdoorsy camping feeling as much as possible. Putting tables inside would cause problems for our family of 5.

We use something like this:

Amazon.com : Lifetime Personal Table with 30-by-20-Inch Molded Top, White : Folding Tables : Patio, Lawn & Garden

We keep it inside and shift it around as needed (either by the dinette, byt the counter...) where we need it. It's small enough that we can move it almost anywhere.

i do like the idea of the 4ft table though. But with the 2 girls and wanting to give them their own beds the 233S was our only option.

Go up. Add some kind of free standing shelving to the counters.

Is your stove top cover (Tin or Glass)? If sheet metal,remove and go the (Wood Cutting Board) Mod. Youroo!!
