Tony thanks for the pic's.

So the cushions are separate from the slide boards .

What holds the rear panel in the up position ?
It looks like the back board rests against the shelf that is behind it at the front of the trailer.

When traveling does it stay up or fall down ?

Thanks, G.

I have not ran down the road with the new gaucho set up. Around the property turning it around the back has remained in place. If it does't I will use velcro.

It does bump up to the shelf. I will be putting some faux leather on the back side of the plywood so that is what you will see through the front window when the bed is in the up position. It will also help with any rubbing on the shelf.

Hi Folks,

Coming to the end, sort of. Here are pictures of the slide out pantry. I modified a rev-a- shelf. I should of just built it myself but it will do.

The pantry comes with a lock postion with a few pounds pull out resistance. I did the ole drop pin through a hole in the shelf trick, again, to keep it in a positive lock position when moving down the road. The real trick now is remembering to drop the pin in. This task goes on the things to do before leaving check list.

You can see the narrow shelf above that is perfect for a loaf of bread or the like.

Tony

Oh, the crazy reflection you see is on the bulk head going into the trailer on the left side, reflecting the stuff I have stored on the shelves inside the "trailer barn". It is not stuff in the trailer.

Thanks for the answers. I may copy your design, where did you get the tracks ?

Tony S, Thank you for so much for all the good information and ideas, beautiful wood work.
I have a few questions for you, how thick is the plywood used on your floor and what type ? did you have to reduce the thickness on the edge ? what is the tool that you used to cut the half lap, router ? and how much of the floor can you remove at one time, with the shell on like you did. Thank you Brook
