Mods to 2015 Roo 19 so far

Some are simple add-ons and a couple are more involved.

Entry 'blank' wall - Didn't want to screw into this wall after reading that the vent stack is somewhere inside - so 3M command hooks it is! Hook for coats/swatshirts with one of those hangers that lets you hang 5 hangers in the space of 1, IKEA pocketed hanger with flashlights/etc, and hanging shoe pockets, which didn't work out and has since been removed.

Wire shelving between upper dinette cabinets and upper kitchen cabinets (3M hooks on cabinet sides, resting in cargo area without being held on. Longer shelf has 3M hook above window also)

DH built a fencepost 'stinky slinky locker' with the gutter slide out tray

Towels in a hanging 'shoe organizer' (I use this at home in DD's bathroom too)

Suction baskets on the dinette window for pens/pencils, odds n ends. We actually used the white one (more sturdy) for our beverage cans while we were playing cards. That way the drinks didn't tip over when the table got bumped/wobbled, etc...

I posted in another thread about the cubby we made above the fridge, and DH also made one above the corner cabinet by the door but I didn't take pics.

More to come I'm sure!

Red springy bracelet (from a key chain) around the TV antenna crank. Hangs on the key hook when antenna is up. When packing for travel, seeing red bracelet with keys reminds us to put the antenna down. When antenna is down and safe for travel, bracelet goes around it. Key hook basket is at the end of the upper cabinets at the door end.

Cargo area above front bunk - 3M strip for DH's glasses at night

Kept hitting our heads on the pointy corner of the entertainment cabinet next to dinette. Foam corner bumper reused from when DD was little and new 3M tape. Also, clear 'magazine file' for books/notepads behind dinette cushion. Yes, 3M tape again...

Moved back the partions under the bathroom sink to give more space (no before pic - oops!)

thx for posting
I have done some of those but not all to my 183. Did not think of possible open space above fridge...

I added wire shelves in the small pantry. I used wire shelves, so I could look through the top one to the lower level without having to bend all the way down on my knees.

Great mods, lots of good ideas. So can someone tell me why the fencepost addition for the stinky slinky? What's wrong with using the bumper?

Jones: Here are some mods I did to my Roo 19, if you care to shamelessly steal:

1. Plexiglass window in gas bottle cover, since you can't open the top and look down inside with the bunk down.
2. Corner shower shield
3. Plexiglass on shower side of bathroom cabinet
4. Shelf in corner cabinet (pic of someone elses, I don't have a pic of mine)
5. (no pic) also replaced the crappy analog Suburban t-stat with a Honeywell 211RTH.

I was worried if mounted my fence post under the bumper it would get crushed.
