2703 wardrobe door mod

Our Rockwood 2013 2703ws has four doors on the wardrobe. The two on the right are kind of hard to use as far as room between the bed and doors. I installed a 30 inch piano hinge on both sets of doors and now they are bifold instead of single. Much easier to open with plenty of room to move. Both sets open to the right now and there is plenty of room.

I'll try to get some tomorrow. Very is to do. Leave the doors closed and start four screws on the backside. Open the doors and finish the rest of them.

I did the piano hinge mod on the right side of the wardrobe. Much better.

The left side doesn't really need it but I guess I'll get another hinge and do the other side too. It just seems like it's half done.

Now put a shelf about 6" off the bottom and you have a place to store shoes; Also use 4 plastic drawers in the cabinet for underware etc.

Nice I may consider doing that as well. On the right side we have a set of plastic shelves for folded clothes so we only use the left for hanging clothes.

Yeah, we've been using the plastic drawers too. We load them in the house and take them out to the trailer, then bring them in with any clean clothes when we return.
