[quote=purman;630149]OK, it has been crazy around here, and I havn't had time to do any work for a week or so... But I have decided to do a wrap around coach and do a small fold up table under the window by the door and another free standing table that will slide in behind the coach by the fridge... now I just need to take some measurements and come up with a good design...

Jason,
I'm trying to figure out how to attach a bracket for a small fold up table in the same spot you plan to put yours. Can you give me any advice on how to mount the bracket? ('02 Safari LS w/carpet on the wall.)

Behind the carpet is aluminum. You can do one of two things. Use either coarse drywall screws or sheet metal screws to attach it directly or screw a piece of wood to the wall and then attach the table to the wood..

I still have the folding hinge of my large table that I am going to cut down..

A piano hinge will work just fine for this application, and gives support all the way across the table edge.

I drew a quick picture of what I am going to do... I have the original hinges so It makes it a little easier.

But when you mount the wood to the wall make sure you drop the hinge down on the front of it so when you fold up the table it sits even with the top of the wood on the wall... Just looks better and cleaner.

This is only one way of doing it, maybe someone else has a better idea?

Hi Purman,
Mostly wanted to let you know that I'm in Cedaredge also and available if you need an extra hand.
On the table support - I'd advise using sheet metal screws 6-8 '' o.c. And attaching the wood with structural adhesive. The adhesive spreads the forces. Dry wall screws will pull out ( been there

Ok, here some pics of my bathroom demo and the really bad job of patching where the toilet was that one of the PO did.

Tomorrow I put in the new floor and lift the rear end back up and weld in the the Angle iron to strengthen up the frame, and also weld the crack in the frame.

I got back from the store with the lumber and Paint to redo my bathtub and hanging wall cabinet, as it's not in bad shape just the wrong color.

I also decided to replace all the plumbing so bought some Pex to redo all that with. (that stuff is not cheap)

Also took the water heater down to get looked at as it was leaking cold water when heating. but not leaking when not. ??????

First thing in the morning the rest of the belly pan is coming off. Wish me luck.

Looking forward to having a nice custom AS... Man it will be nice when it is done.

Jason,

Did you ever finish the area where you said you were using marble tile? Is so, or when you do please post some photos. Kudos on all your creative solutions and hard work.

Thanks, Mary

Well today was also a good day. I got the belly pan off from the back through the rear axle, so I could inspect the frame for cracks. NONE....

The frame has a small bend in it from the rear end sag.

Got the new floor in place in the rear, and will bolt it in tomorrow.

I also jacked up the rear of the trailer till the rear wheels just came of the ground to try and straighten the frame out. It looks Ok. I will weld some angle iron onto the frame to try and keep it there and to strengthen it.

Either way it is way better than it was. The floor probably dropped 4 inches in the back (mostly do to the rotted our rear floor). Some of the bolts holding the floor to the shell had ripped through the channel and wedged in between the frame and the channel making the drop worse.

Once I get the floor bolted in and the frame welding it should be about level or close enough not to notice a drop in the floor as you walk into the bathroom.

Then on to the new plumbing and putting the bathroom back together. or rebuilding it.

Well, Today I got the angle Iron welded to the frame to strenthen it.

Then lowed the rear end and bolted the shell to the frame through my new floor in the back.

Now there is no bounce and the sag in the rear is only about 3/4 compared to the 5 + inches is used to be. now when I walk to the rear I don't feel like I am going down hill.

Also got 99% of the new plumbing put together, all I need to do is run a line to the fresh tank.

My water heat had some pin holes in the bottom so I pick up a new one tomorrow.

Then I put in the hardwood floor and start reinstalling the bathroom.

My new floor is silver because I used some epoxy paint to coat it with...

Ok, End of day 4.

Got the new flooring all the way back into the bathroom.

Picked up the new water heater and have it in place, along with the power inverter. Bath tub in place so I can figure out where the toilet is going to go.

Tomorrow I get everything in. and start building cabinets and counter tops.

I will post some pics tomorrow...

Ok, Today was only a half day of work, but I got the plumbing finished

I got my 6 gage wire up to the front and placed and wired in the inverter.

Got the new water heater in and plumbed.

Got the bathtub placed and riveted to the wall.

Starting to frame out the cabinets for the bathroom and place the toilet.

Here are a couple of Pics...
