Need help with console Ideas.

The console in our Coachmen Mirada leaves a lot to be desired. So I would like to build something more functional but not to big and heavy as it sits on the engine cover/doghouse. Has anyone made anything? If so, could you post pictures as to give me ideas to reflect on?

I too have the same console on my 2012 Mirada 32DS. It borders on worthless. I too would be interested in ideas to replace or enhance the console.

One thought I did have was to place an identical pc over it so that it would hold a Coffey cup or soda can and not fall over. Could paint to match and would look factory original.

Google portable car center consoles (images) for ideas.
Not sure how much room you have:

If you also google images for "custom center consoles", you'll see lots of ideas. Mostly for hot rods and such, but you'll get the idea. You need to decide what you want in the console. Cup holders, a covered compartment, a place to charge phones, etc. You can also check with a local hot rod custom shop or stereo shop for more ideas.

Well I have to say you at least got something even if it's not desirable. On the 2014 Georgetown 351 there is absolutely nothing. Thanks for the tip on
