We began the upgrade process with three large projects. We purchased and installed two Basement Slideout Trays from PPL Motorhomes. The slideouts are made by MorRyde, they are 8 feet long and pull out from either side of the coach. We bought a TriMark Keypad entry system for the front door of the coach allowing us to lock and unlock without carrying a key or remote with us. The install involved cutting an opening into the side fiberglass which was a little stressful but the install went smoothly and the system works perfectly. The third large project was to create an integrated computer desk into the rear closet. This unit is oak and is set up complete with dual monitors, a cpu rack, and a wifi receiver mounted to the window to maximize reception.
With the confidence of completing these three projects we continued the process throughout the summer by designing and constructing 4 drawer trays for the kitchen cabinets, installing a built-in blow dryer for the bathroom, and creating a recess for the main electrical panel to improve clearance with the bedroom closet door. We’re having fun now!
As the summer rolled along we added a 2 drawer tray system to the outside pantry, replaced the mattress with a SleepNumber bed, and replaced the large window blinds with Levelor Retractables.
