Pics of our maiden voyage and "open house"

Here are the photos of our shake-down cruise. We had an open house for family and friends Wednesday evening.

I will post one here. This is Penny's vanity after all the mods were installed.



Next trip is Thursday, May 23. I hope to get some fishing in this time.

Looks like a great time! We have the 2013 version of that TT and will be making our maiden voyage soon. Question for you, how do you like the counter top extension or was it in the way?

We thought it would be in the way, too, but we wound up leaving it installed all the time. Drawers were still accessible and the slide provided ample walk around room.

Hey Teach, a couple more questions for you if you don't mind. After we picked up our camper it became evident that they didn't mount the towel bar or the toilet paper holder. May not be too bad since I can do what I want. I noticed that you installed a towel ring so did you also install the bar? Also, where did you mount the toilet paper holder? There seems to be a lack of suitable backing for either of the supplied items. ONE spot for the toilet paper holder with plenty of backing would be on the door to the bedroom but the boss really didn't like that idea.

The ring came installed. You are correct, the walls aren't suitable for towel bars. We found some satin finished, over-the-door towel bars and put them inside and outside of the shower stall. The beige towel in the upper left of the picture is hanging on one. I installed the supplied bar on the inside of the bathroom-to-living room door.
Now you tell your boss that my boss says put the toilet paper holder on the sliding door. When the door is open, the holder winds up out of the way. Close the door and it magically appears at your finger tips.

I've ordered the wardrobe hanging shelves I saw pictured in a post here as well as a new shower head with an on/off button. Also, since the bed overhangs the storage box it sits on, I plan to put shoe storage bags on the sides of the bed frame. I'll post pics of these mods as they are done.

Have fun and stay in touch,
Teach

Teach, just read your reply to the boss and she now seems to agree. Helps to have input from another boss. I'll be interested to see what you're doing with the bags on the side of the bed frame as I'm not quite picturing it.

I'm also going to look into the wardrobe idea. Have to find that old post again. Where did you find the over the door towel bars?

WalMart. They match the finish on the lavatory faucet.
Congrats on the TP holder solution.
The OP said she got the wardrobe hanger at Target, but it's not in stores. It's online only and here it is 6 Shelf Canvas Sweater Organizer - Natural Blend... : Target

Just switched the 20# tanks off the Rockwood and moved the 30#s from the Sunline. Had to buy a piece of all thread to raise the regulator and hoses, but it sho' do have some gas now!
Apparently, one change from 2013 to 2014 model year was the loss of a heated mattress. It was included on my order sheet but it's not on the trailer; however, I don't care because of the two things they added in 2014: LED interior lighting and an LED strip under the awning for a porch light.
Here it is



Sweet!
