Kitchen remodel 1976

I have remodeled my kitchen area and replaced my old Dometic RM 100 frig with a 110V Summit FF985SS SS refrigerator. Attached are 2 pdf files with pictures of removal process of the old frig and the final pictures of the entire kitchen area. The last 2 pictures in this file show a a before and after view. I added drawers at the bottom of the sink counter which really added a lot of usable space. I used oak veneer and wood with a light oak stain and semi gloss polyurethane. I added an Oak roll top to the bar compartment (this was the microwave spot in the 70's, they were big). I re-built the pull out under the bar and added an oak inlay design. I also re-did the closets and the back bedroom counter area as well. The closet doors are trimmed in oak with a vinyl wall covering that matches the walls and ceiling pattern in the A/S.

Where's the Jack?

Daniels that is...

Very nice job Don.

Can't help but notice that you have provided adequate bar space. Nice to see a man with his priorities right. Got any Shiner Boch in that new SS fridge?

Love the slide-out counter under the bar and the front end--those easy chairs, wow!

I installed the recliners a few years ago, they are great. I could not live with the old "Back Breaker" couch. We found these leather recliners at a store that was going out of business. They are Italian made and are a little smaller than most recliners. They fit perfect and are bolted to the floor and since they are wall away chairs they do not require any extra room behind them. They recline to a sitting position with leg rest and to an almost flat position. I wish I would had bought a few since I have not seen these since. I made the small table/cabinet between them which is also bolted to the floor. I also had to trim down the fold up table about 2" but it still works fine.

Very nice!

Were your batteries and converter located under the couch? If so, what did you do with them to accomodate the recliners?

No, the battery is in a compartment just aft of the door step. The converter is on a shelve under the kitchen counter behind the gas range top. The connection point for the wires coming from the 7 pin connector from the truck is mounted on the wall at floor level and is accessible if need be through the center table. There was nothing else behind or under the old couch.

I have had people say, "but if you have quest, where do they sleep"? Motel 6. This 31' Airstream sleeps 2.

Looks great!! I can only hope that my A/S will look that good someday. Right now, just have an empty shell and hoping to have mine on the road for my first rally in April!!!

You da man! I agree with that, completely. My Caravel sleeps 2, my Safari will sleep 2, my Overlander sleeps 2, and my Sovereign, OK, up till now sleeps 2 but will sleep 4 (or maybe just one in the back and one in the front...), not that I ever intend it to sleep 4. I just wanted to experiment with a bed in the front, too.
