Here's how my "new office" is shaping up in terms of controlling loose items while we are in motion and I'm working on the computer using the Lagun table.

T1N Interstate owners -- Container Store sells a magnetic bulletin board (here) that fits perfectly on the galley diagonal wall, as you see below. They are very proud of their small sheet of metal ($29.99) but the upside is that NO CUTTING or shaping is needed. It's also fairly heavy gauge, so magnets adhere strongly. I am notorious for switching things around, and so unless I am 100% sure that I am going to keep a configuration, I never drill the cabinetry. Ergo, this is attached with 3M double-sided tape. I covered the four screw holes at the corners with thin neodymium dot magnets for a finished appearance.

You might think that anything attached to this cabinet face would intrude into the aisle and get bumped off by people passing. The key to minimizing that possibility is to not put protruding items too close to the corners of the galley. If the items are kept more toward the center, they are out of the way. The baskets you see in this photo are held on with four neodymium magnets (product listing here) and are just over two inches deep - very slim. In a worst-case scenario, a bump causes a basket to tumble to the floor - no damage done. The upside for me is a place to hold my Netgear card, mouse, and I put a Buc-ees breakfast taco in the photo for good karma. I might add a third basket here.


LB_3 also cut down another wall pocket (product link here) for me to use on the table-mounting wall to the left of the diagonal face. This is the fourth we've installed in the van - they are extremely useful while remaining low profile. And of course are also magnetic, so things can be attached to the front face as well as inserted into the slot. That is also attached with the 3M tape. I haven't yet decided where I'm going to attach the other half of this pocket.

I never did find a used armrest.
I bought two new ones instead. (So my passenger side has two- nice when it is swiveled especially)

Thanks!

I'm confirming the spec on the arm rest. In our MB datacard (the specs on the original build), it just says "S2", but that's the generic option code for every Sprinter arm rest, not for a 2006 (or a T1N) in particular.

Sprinter Forum has a thread that says "Part number 05103710AA (Dodge, MB: A0009706201) is interior armrest for Right seat, 05103711AA (Dodge, MB: A0009706301) is interior armrest for Left seat". As I understand it, the left seat arm rest would fit the right side of the right seat.

Some of them are upholstered, though. They are not all the same. Plus there's a black one apparently called "Venice". I need the OEM gray vinyl one.

I've had no luck with scrap yards thus far. People who part-out Sprinters would like to sell the whole seat, not just pieces of it. Coughing up a chunk of money for a new arm rest may be the only choice.

I forgot to mention this - if anyone gets it in their mind that they want to make a table something like this, do yourself a favor and ROUND YOUR CORNERS.

Having sharp corners wasn't a big deal when I was using it only in the rear of the van with the pedestal legs. Now that it moves from place to place, the corners are a pain. Originally I didn't want to think about rounding them after-the-fact, because it would require me to re-do the entire edge binding, which is a time-consuming job. But I'm probably going to bite the bullet and do it. I wish I'd had the foresight.

On my Tommy Bahama Grand Tour it is under the passenger side jump seat in the back. Just lift the seat.

Sometimes we don't get things exactly right on the first try. Sometimes we have to iterate.

Last night, I finished re-binding the now-rounded corners of my dual-use table (LB_3 did the fine jigsawing). MUCH better. The curve radius echoes the style of the Airstream signature window in the galley. And no more sharp corners means much-reduced interference from hooking on things as the Lagun is swiveled.

Looks perfect to me. Although perfect to you is a somewhat abstract concept requiring many refinements.

"perfect to you is a somewhat abstract concept requiring many refinements."

Love that you were teased in a such a complimentary way. Sure many of us think that.

But oh the ideas that perolate in those brains of yours. And then you actually bring them to fruition, and try again. Lots of admiration and kudos to you.

Interblog is our Master of Clever Modifications, in my opinion.

Being a perfectionist has its place in the world.

I think Ive said this before....thought should be given to patents for some of these things.

Thank you, one and all. It keeps me off the streets.

But I'm an anti-perfectionist. I'm well known as the stereotypical hell-on-wheels social media poster who rails against society's incessant, warped demands for functional perfection. My seven semesters of university mathematics informs a lot of statistical analysis, such as the fact (and it is a fact) that we will never achieve zero incidents of crime in certain key areas of intense public interest because that outcome is simply not within the realm of possibility, and it never will be. There's a fundamental difference between striving for improvement where it's not possible (= perfectionism), vs. striving for targeted advancements which are self-evident and easy to realize (= iterative continuous improvement).
