drinks

hi- you could certainly build in a little fold-down table in that location, using some of the ideas in this thread. You could also build a little book rack, with a top shelf big enough for drinks and stuff.

Shelf removed....then replaced

Tammy,
I removed the shelf in my 69 Caravel (now my brothers) and then had to replace it. I found that the seating was way too uncomfortable without it there. It pushed me too far into the seat and my head kept hitting the overhead. I did cut out the street side area and built in a shelf topped storage compartment. It made a perfect, usable table top surface for the cold beverage, hot tea, flamingo lamp or book.

shelf

Thanks for the good ideas. We still havent started on it. Robin, that is a very nice looking Camper! When are you going to show everyone those cute curtains? We went and looked at a 65 Tradewind. Needs some work, but a very good price. Maybe we will start a collection too.....

The shelf is there to store your fly rods and the tool for the zipdee awning.

Finally Finished the shelf

Well, it took a little while to figure out. And John said he wasnt doing this again. It took him 2 days with cutting, sanding, gluing etc.. but it is finally done. Personally, I think it turned out great. He used a piano hinge and 2 slide locks as you will see in the picture.

Sounds like what we have (Post #7)...with the trimming of the corners it should work just fine - ours does.

Shari,
It was you who gave us the idea to do it this way!

Thanks

Some PO placed a small table, more shelf really, on the street side of my AS, using the folding/locking hinges mentioned before, it is very handy for cocktail rest..
