Bedding

My wife’s style. We leave it in the bed configuration most of the time. We have a Martha Stewart mattress topper under the fitted sheet. My wife made two separate fleece blankets (camping fleece from Joann’s Fabrics) so we don’t have to fight over one blanket in the middle of the night. She just rolls it up in the day for decoration. We don’t feel it necessary to use a top sheet.

We leave our bed down, too.

I use the same type of bed setup. We leave our bed down most of the time with a great mattress topper, cut to fit. If we need to use the benches and table, we roll the topper and all and just leave it on the bench next to the front window. Tis uncovers the two ends and we can sit and use the table. Most of the time we eat outside. We have two chairs and a table or use the picnic setup. I even have a conduction plate to fry eggs, etc. on and use it outside on the picnic table. It keeps the Nest clean and we enjoy outdoors. I use the same baskets you do and find they are great. I will post pictures as my nest is parked elsewhere.

These two additions made the dinette<>bed conversion in our 2019 16U a lot more manageable.

The 24” high folding bar stool allows me sit at the pantry counter, have coffee, check email, study trail maps, etc. while my wife continues snoozing. Then it provides seating at the counter top for breakfast. It quickly folds up out of the way during breakfast prep & cleanup. Folded, it fits beautifully on the left side of the closet between the cedar wall and the clips for the pedestal. After breakfast, the Colman queen size sleeping bag w/ cotton sheets inside, rolls up into a bolster cushion during the day.

Sorry about the blue cast in the photos. I still haven’t figured out how to get the LED rope light to produce a natural white light

I went to install the stabilizer wrench in the nose cone area, as suggested by iCjay. Itís pretty easy to find/install galvanized L brackets to keep the main shaft resting on the frame using the existing screws (see attached photo). And the upper handle conveniently rests against the inside part of the front hinge. But Iím stumped on how to build a ďhook and latchĒ to secure the handle up against the fiberglass frame.

Any ideas?

In reference to the stabilizer jack wrench, I just put it in the drivers side of the nose cone with the handle up and the long end forward. The handle lies against the battery box. It canít fall out. After 3000 miles, it was was still there, right where it is suppose to be.

Thanks for the info. 3,000 miles is a pretty good test

I think Iíll stick to the passenger side, since the trailerís umbilical cable is attached to the frame on the driverís side.

In the sense of belts and suspendersÖ Iíll add the L brackets to help keep it on the frame. And maybe a Velcro strap to keep the handle from flopping around.

Thanks again. Your posts have been very helpful. And daytime temps here have finally dropped below 100. We may even be able to make sure the furnace works later this week. And maybe finnally take her on the road next week 8)

The lock is a matter of flipping that as well and getting the lock hing centered just right. It took me about an hour to d and looks great. Actually will hold less water in the sill this way, easier to clean.
Just did the same. I'm very pleased with the results.
