It looks like you have refinished your Tappan MityMite stove top. What did you do to the stovetop and burner grates? They look very nice.

Redesigning the Dinette

We have a 2012 FC 25 rear bedroom. There's just the two of us. The front dinette feels way too big and dominates all the space in front. The table is far bigger than we need for example.

In considering a redesign of this whole front area to be more lounge and less dinette, I am wondering is this will ruin the eventual resale value? Assuming the redesign was done in the same quality, of course. I envision something like two leather chairs and a smaller table between them, and some storage or shelves on the two sides. The existing dinette is frankly not comfortable for TV watching, reading etc. The dinette seats are sort of utilitarian.

I wouldn't want to reduce my value radically by doing this. But, I would like to have a more custom design that fits our needs.

I think if you did it similar to the way Doug did you might even increase value. Check out this thread - http://www.airforums.com/forums/f44/...r-94598-2.html. Beautiful, functional and looks stock.

Great thread! We seeing all the interior photos. Nice work. We especially like the wood panel interior. It looks like something out of the 1930's or 40's; very nostalgic.

Thanks Birdmaestro--

That is a beautiful conversion. That link also brought me to another one who did a slightly different version. There's no doubt that using AS components like that is the way to go. It's like creating a new AS floor plan. I think most people who travel as just a couple would probably love that kind of layout.

That is a nice trailer. You better make sure you don't have leaks. It would be tragic to ruin all that nice wood.

Thank you, I admit to being a little too proud of it.

So fear so good on the leaks, it has stayed dry through torrential rain and snow and sleet so far.

Even so , I built it to be easy to fix even if it should leak. After tearing apart the stock stuff, I made easy to fix a priority.

Stained glass inserts

Just installed these stained glass inserts I made over this winter. Will help with heat loss during cold periods, heat gain during warm spells, privacy when parked to close to towering motorhomes and unlike the pull curtains, will let light in all the time.
