Countertop Extension

We just purchased a 2010 31TS Wildcat. Can we order a countertop extension somewhere? We would have got the Eagle 313 RKS for the kitchen, but I wanted more family room. Now my wife is saying she needs more counter space. If anybody has done this, please tell me when they added it onto counter. Thanks

It should come with a countertop extension........

If you get the Corian, it won't match, but it should have an extension, ours does, but it is a 2008.

I am doubting that as it doesn't even mention it as an option on the 31TS, however, I hope your right

We didn't need a tv in our bedroom and our trailer didn't have a counter extension so we took the flip up tv shelf out of the bedroom and used it as a counter extension...works great and matches the kitchen counter top. If you have a tv flip up shelf in your bedroom and you don't want to sacrifice it, you could probably order one from forest river to use as a countertop extension to get a match.

my wife and i had the discussion about counter space vs living room space, there are alot of trailers with more counter space but we elected to go with the living space. The 31ts does not have an option for a extension and looking at the lay out there is not a good place to put one. We decided that once we get our new wildcat we will just find a folding table to set up when we need the space.

We did EXACTLY the same thing.
I also added an outlet under the extension and now the
extension is the coffee pot shelf.
I can fold it down if we want to open the couch into
a bed.

Counter extension

Good thoughts here. I also needed more counter space. Instead of moving the shelf for the bedroom TV I installed a rail (like the one that holds the BBQ on the outside) on the side of the counter above the outlet and simply use the shelf from outside. If I need it outside I simply remove it and take it out.

I have run into the same issue in our TT.
My question is; how did you mount the railing? Our end wall is so thin you can see light thru it...
Did you need to block it?
Thanks for any help.

We purchased the counter top extension when we ordered our Flagstaff 5th wheel. The first time we used it my wife turned the corner and banged into it. After dealing with the bruise, it now lives under the sofa.

We finally bought a folding table the same height as the dinette and it serves as table extension and extra counter space as needed.

Love our countertop extension. It goes up when we get to a campsite and comes down when we leave. Ours has a telescoping leg to the floor. The brackets it slides into above the drawers made it kind of wobbly, so my husband drilled some holes in the brackets and we use pins to hold it in place. Now it is very sturdy. Don't know how we would ever live without it. It's about 24" long, so it gives you a lot of room; okay, a lot of room for a TT!
