Bungee strap along the wall that lines up with the first notch in the cushion, right below the head/neck rest? You could just leave two eye screws in the wall and that would be the only visible thing when in use.

Just brainstorming...

Brian (actually SuEllyn), looks good. How do you keep things from walking off the shelves? Our microwave and printer have both bounced around at times. I did install strips of wood on the shelves to hold them back and that has worked well, even defeating the Alaska Hwy's effort to bounce everything onto the floor.

There are many ways to tie down the chair, but most of them are ugly or impractical. A couple of upside down hooks under the middle of the table (away from knees) could be used to tie something to the chair with some hooks screwed to the floor against the wall. I'd avoid bungie cords unless you can get them really tight—otherwise the chair may move around enough to keep hitting something. There may be something with a locking latch that can be sunk into the floor and has a way of tying down the chair legs. There are many, many unusual items that can be adapted if you spend time walking around hardware and tool stores looking for the answer.

We found a clear plastic magazine rack at the Container Store to mount on the side of the cabinet. Since tour books, maps, Airstream Life and lots of other stuff of traveling pile up, we need lots of places to put them.

We have secured the microwave and printer the same was as we had in last last cabinet. The microwave is tied down to the shelf floor with those little appliance tie-down straps from Camping World. The printer is held in place with one of those little pressure rod retainers, also from Camping World. As this has worked in the past without fail, we decided not to reinvent the wheel. As for the new additional shelves, we were thinking about using pressure rods for the vacuum and charger shelves.

The three shelves along the bottom of the unit each contain two separate plastic bins that are holding all kinds of office supplies, tools, and other small junk. We are also thinking about using the little pressure rods for these shelves, also.

While not too stylish, one can find recessed "D" rings that could be installed into the wood flooring to hold the chair in place. At a boat shop, they maybe made of brass and priced accordingly but at least they look nice.

The recessed floor ring is a good idea, thank you.

That's what I was trying to think of, but couldn't remember a name for it. I used them as handles for a trap door years ago in a house (the handle pulls up to use). Thanks switz for jogging my memory.

The "D" rings probably can't be beat ..... how about using the black rubber cords with S-hooks as tie downs and install the "D" rings appropriately to get the tension you need.

He also made great wine glass holders for over the table.They do not move or break during travel and will make more for those wanting them.

OH my... I want to get into your drawers! That didn't come out quite right

What a Great Idea. I hope the factory sees that. Best Idea of the year! I want it!!!! Do you have pictures of the installation? It's SO much nicer than the existing cabinet and it looks like it's 2-3 inches deeper front to back. Correct?

Hi All,

He took out the back of that silly space, secured the duct in the back near the exterior wall, installed 14" full extension slides and built the drawer to fit. I can get the dimentions for you tomorrow.

He made a cabinet for the zipdee chairs behind the short bench (took out the silly pad) also lots of shelves in closets, dividers in overhead cabinets in both kitchen and ba. I will get some pics tomorrow if you want to see what was done. New floor too.

Kate

I really like the idea of replacing the the secondary back pad of the couch with a storage box. I'll get SuEllyn right on that!
