Salem cruise lite 195bh mods

Hi all, the hubby and I just got our first TT and I want to add a medicine cabinet to the bathroom.

I'm sure someone out there has done this to the 195bh, any ideas or suggestions? My husband doesn't want to drill a lot of holes, but how else can you safely mount it so it doesn't crash down while driving?

I have been looking to do the same to my 195BH. It has 2"X2" studs that are 16" apart. I have added a TV to the wall seems solid. Heres a link to someone else adding a cabinet to their 195BH.

Added Medicine Cabinet

Great thank you for that link. That looks simple enough. Now just to find the right cabinet.

Hi, the medicine cabinet we chose came from the local building supply store. Its mostly plastic construction made it lite weight. The backboards were painted by my talented wife and match the factory pattern perfectly. I can provide more details on the painting if required.

Your wife did an excellent job matching the colors and pattern. Can you send her to do mine? I'm not that talented.

I think matching the colors will be the hardest part for me, looks like she sponge painted the pattern, correct? Did she just pick random colors or do a color match at home depot?

Thanks, it really looks great!

I took the access panel below the tub to home hardware. They matched two out of the three colors. Then my wife matched the pattern using Saran Wrap not sponges. she rolls one color on let's it dry . Rolls second color on then covers painted area with Saran Wrap and lifts it off. Presto pattern/color matching backboards. She makes it look easy.
