The next Ikea buy were the hooks & towel bar for the shower. Got the showerhead from Menard's I think. All together under $100.

The PO of my trailer did the plexiglass door within the screen door (must have had door within a door envy). Anyhow, it works nicely & was probably pretty cheap. I added the pull latch that I got from a boat supply place. The door latch broke once, so now it's handled very gently--no more slamming allowed!

Good idea Becky...I'm always concerned about breaking the original lock handle off. Think I'll copy that one.

Wow. It looks like your PO and my PO knew each other. I have an almost identical plexiglass door within my screen door. Mine even has the same roller latch. Mine has a drawer pull handle next to the latch to help snap it in place when shutting it, but that is the only difference. I wonder if someone sold these at one time. You're right, it works very well.

I like the pull instead of pulling on the lock handle. I will have to consider that myself.

Cork-board on the side-wall next to the fridge in my 31 Soveriegn. I can post pictures from previous parties, leave notes for my party friends, just about anything.

Why did I fit this hatch?

These pictures show the bug-proof hatch I've fitted to cover a hole I've cut through the bulkhead from the bathroom into the refrigerator compartment. Today's puzzler: why??

No takers, so here's a clue: The refrigerator compartment has an access door to the outside world. Thus my hatch gives access to the bathroom from the outside world. Now how could that be useful?
