dko0ttum, like what you've done. I am going to go out today and change the bath door around like you've done. Never thought of it, but really like the idea. THANKS>

Did you lose the entire outside storage compartment on the roadside? Also, where did you put the inverter+?

I have the 2013 version.

The outside storage hatch is now behind the folding table, about a three inch deep space, enough for a few hitching/unhitching tools, lube cans. Quite convenient. Airstream Service Center built a storage cabinet over the existing charger/converter and inverter, also convenient. So the usable storage is improved and the wasted end of the former lounge is put to good use as new storage.

The trailer has no hat rack, so we put the newly-gained space behind the recliners to use by adding 10 Ikea hangers alongside and around behind the two recliners.

Here's the new storage compartment over the charger/converter, and the new hat hooks.

Doug, thanks for the reply...not sure what you mean about not having "hat racks". We have two overhead cabinets with lights but no hat rack.

One additional question. When you reversed the bathroom door, did you flip the door upside down and move the hinge and hardware or did you start fresh and get a new door?

John

John, I just flipped the door upside down, the latch is nearly centered. Removed the screws frame door and left the hinge on the door. Propped it up on the other side, marked and predrilled the top and bottom hinge screws, fastened it and checked alignment again, it should open 180 degrees flat to the small wall section there.

If alignment okay predrill the remaining screw holes using the in-place hinge as a guide and fasten down. The catch goes to the opposite side, and it's former position is covered by the hinge. Fill the old screws holes with matching wood putty and smooth, touch up with clear polyurethane if you like.

By no hat rack, I mean no place by the door to hang my hat, so I added ten of these hooks around the recliners for hats or whatever. The space was there.
