Hanging coats???

BTW/Where do you hang coats?
Thanks again
Right you are about the couch; that was the driving factor in our modification. We spoke with the couch manufacturer to determine the feasibility of having a higher quality foam installed only to learn that what we had was "the best".

And yes, the cost for a new couch and/or modifying the existing unit was not cheap. That is why we decided to spend a small fortune on the two chairs and foot stools. The past weeks since we have had the chairs have been wonderful. For the first time since we purchased the trailer I have been able to sit and watch TV and not have the circulation in my legs cut off due to the steel bar that was on the front of the couch pressing against my leg so much when the foam compressed.

As for coats, we have a closet between the galley and the shower. It is not as large as we would like but, OTOH, it does help keep the quantity of "stuff" that we haul along to the necessities; otherwise known as the bare minimum.

We also have two closets at the foot of each of the twin beds; I converted one by installing shelves. We find that we don't have that much "stuff" to hang up.

The days of dresses and suits are long gone. If we have something that we MUST attend that requires more "formal" attire we buy something at a used clothing store and give it back when we are finished. This is a lot easier than hauling stuff along that you only use when someone gets married or dies.

Full timing is NOT for everyone and it is especially not for those who need to have a different wardrobe for every day of the month.

We are travelers with an attitude. We get to go anywhere, anytime, and have attitudes about what we see and hear.

Wink Modifications....

My husbands parent were full-time Missionaries/Evangelists and lived in an Airstream for 30 years, traveling constantly. We are following in their footsteps and since we are in Churches, have dinners to attend and then travel and camp our wardrobe is varied. We have one 14 inch closet that is mine and my husband has the 10 inch one above his bed. His 3 suit jackets are in mine. I absolutely love our "home" but occasionally wish it was a little bigger. Storage is the biggest thing as we have everything we own in our 25 foot home. Off season clothes are in "Space Bags" under our couch which has been a huge blessing. We are in New York this year until after December 9th. Woo Hoo!! So we have to have winter clothing as well as summer.
I loved the storage setup you have around the front. We have 2 laptop computers plus a printer (that sits between our twin beds in the back-only reason we got the twin beds is we needed the nightstand to put the printer on)
You gave me some idea's.

We have a 2005 Classic 30 that we modified by removing the credenza in the living room (behind the dinette seat) and adding an ekorne recliner in place. Works great for us; we are not fulltimers. I can't show any pictures as the trailer is now in storge for the winter.

The ekorne recliner is very comfortable.

Your modification looks great.
