New window fromes, in multiple colors (we ordered dark brown, to go with the decals) were purchased from PPL RV Parts, for less than $20.

Had to buy both interior and extreior frames (they are sold separately), because the SIZE fit, but the screw holes on the new exterior frame didn't match the screw holes on the old.

Mirror or smoke glass will be cut at a local glass shop.

I've ordered from PPL before. Their website may not be as "friendly" as some of the others, but they have a HUGE selection, great prices, and are a VERY accomodating vendor!

I have sketches of what I did and another idea that doesn't require welding the lower mount brackets. If someone wants the sketch of the new idea please pm me and I will send it. I would fab it out of wood and try it before making it out of steel. I think it will work just as good and the welded brackets.

p.s. The pics are in my albums.

[What are you going to store in them? The square pvc fence post covers with a pc of pvc guttering in them work great for small items, slinkys, etc.]

What is the gutter for?

I bought 2 diamond plate 10' conduit boxes of craigslist for $ 40 together which each have 2 5' pieces I'm hoping to turn into under belly storage.

Mount shelf on top of the gun cabinet, that I put in the toy box, so I can put the TV there for the rear bunks, so the kids can watch TV on the rainy days if they like! And put small railing on top of the kitchen cabinets, to contain some light things like bread, paper plates and paper towels! These will be in an XLR 27HFS of course.

It functions as a slide out shelf so you can completely fill it if you put ends on the gutter.

Well the led ribbon lights finally got here today and with finishing the 4 awning pole tiedown kits, I can now mount the lights in the step cutout. I also got 4 connector links so I can turn corners with the lights. Once the lights are mounted that finishes my "to do" list unless someone on this forum comes up with something.

Got them mounted, will see if we like them tonight(or rather if TOWTA likes them). May be taking them off.

Will wonders never seize? TOWTA likes them, so I guess I won't have to take them off.
