The same thing that makes regular kitchen cabinetry good for your home, makes it undesireable for a travel trailer. You need thin, light stuff, and most regular stuff is thick and heavy. Your house doesn't care if a corian countertop weighs 200 pounds, but your trailer and tow vehicle would.
You would be better off to "build your own", and perhaps use commercially available doors, hinges, and latches. Everything needs to be securable, either a notch on the bottom of a drawer to rest on, or a catch to keep things from popping open when you go over a bump.

New sofa

Well after much debating we have just put a new sofa in our 75 Sov.

It came out of a 2008 Safari with Stratus interior and matched our interior perfect.

Now we are one step closer to getting this thing on the road!

Looks great! How did you treat the walls to get the nice sepia tone to them?

We painted them kind of a cream color and then sponged on some darker brown to give it a leather look.

If you think it looks good in the photos, you should actually see it in person!

Great job guys.

I'd love to, but Arkansas is a long way away from the West coast of British Columbia! I'll be very happy with the pictures for the time being. Some day I'd love to travel to your part of the continent

Some people have made the trip there multiple times.

There isn't THAT much to see.

Rivet There Really is Stuff to See

Steve,

You are going to hurt Gene’s feelings.

Best regards to Amy and Colin!

There really is a lot to see. Steve and Amy just haven’t seen it. When they come down, they just hangout at Airstream of Arkansas. Ok, they did make the last Arkansas RV show too.

There is a variety of natural locations including the Ozark mountains and the Mississippi delta. There is a blues festival in Helena/West Helena every year. Little Rock/North Little Rock has an extensive pedestrian/bike path that includes the longest and highest pedestrian/bike bridge in North America or the world, depending on which source you check. The people are friendly and the winters are mild. Where you are from, I wouldn’t recommend summer, though.

Come on down and visit!

Rivet But I did stay in a Holiday Inn last night?

Hi Steve,

Well, I’m not with Parks & Tourism, but I did send them some information last week. I am with the Institute for Economic Advancement, which is tasked with economic development statewide, so…

Heck, AOA is a destination in its own right, as you know.

As for AOA, been there, done that (3 times) and got the T-shirts. I will be hitting other destinations for awhile. I didn't know you were with the economic develop department.

Steve
