2013 318BHS - things I've done so far

Since we picked it up a couple of months ago, we have:
  • Added outside bright round porch light to the left of the front door 3 ft or so, with inside switch just inside door, but other 2 light switches - see switch on key holder picture below.
  • Added small light (switch on light) on back side of trailer, just front of the dinette location.
  • added outside baggage doors with access to the under-dinette storage. Awesome - pic below -
  • matching TP holder, hand-towel hooks, towel bars on the bathroom door (Home Depot Pegasus) - pic below
  • coat hooks on the sliding bedroom doors, over the foot of the bed (Command Strip hooks, screwed into place).
  • key holder just under the light switches by the front door - pic below
  • Sliding pantry shelves - Pantry Modification
  • moved dinette table 3" further from wall (2-post dinette) for tummy room and made the distance between the post collars on the floor match the distance on the bottom of the tabletop - pic below
  • added a light in the pass-through storage on the 'far' side.
  • bought, cut and installed carpet in the front passthrough that matches the rest of the trailer.
  • used some of that carpet to make 'toppers' for the top of the little platforms next to the bed, so the dogs don't just slide across it.
A few pics

How did you mount the towel holders on the door? I really like that mod!
