they're not difficult to make but as in any business there's profit, overhead, liability insurance, workers compensation insurance and a host of other bills and people trying to get money out of you. as a small business owner, liability insurance and workers comp insurance is expensive. i have to say that i don't think 2K is too bad for a custom piece that will fit your rig to a tee (if you're willing to have someone else make it that is).
pizzachop - thanks for the dinette details. i seemed to have missed those in all my searching on the subject. i may try and do something like that in my flying cloud if i can get it to fit.
