I saw a few days ago the counter extension you have in your trailer. It looks pretty nice.I need something like that so I sent my husband to Home Depot to buy the materials and they don't carry those type of brackets. Where did you buy your stuff at? I would appreciate if you let me know. Thanks


Just sent you a PM but here is the link to the original post on the Counter Extension.

Have Fun

Here are a couple of quick, easy and cheap ones I did this weekend.

I used a hose storage reel to store the electrical cord. It also has a storage bin that I use to hold my adapter plugs and my gloves.

Since I don't like clutter, I added storage reels for the cable, hose, and extention cord.

Here's some of our latest adds:

Some wheels to keep from grinding the back of the TT too bad (needed a little help with our driveway!

Closet mod that I found on this thread - we're not sold on the velcro, this is a work in progress.

And the ever-trusty clothes line. Found that pool noodles keep you from ripping open a leg!

Where did you get those wheels and were they welded on or bolted? I need those.

Hey z_i_m... does that mount hold okay going down the road? I just installed a 26" LCD in my trailer and decided to use a post mount and feet to keep it stable since none of the arms I looked at seemed up to the task (pictures to follow soon).

Just for kicks I setup a video camera in the trailer on our last trip. The shaking, vibration and noises while going down the road are crazy!

BTW... you motorhome guys are killing us with these cool mods in those huge basement storage compartments (that we'd love to have)!

hey mike, the sanus mount holds great...i wanted to make double sure it was secure and that is why i opted to install a 2x4 on the inside ward and bolt it on...the beuty of this is you can unscrew the mount and lay it on the bed in 5 seconds......but i havent had any trouble as i tighten the arm so it doesnt move whilr traveling....also the bedroom lcd is 19'' so not heavy at all.....the living room is a 27'' and it just sits on the platform i made......and i lay it on the bed when traveling...i would love to see yours.......
