Thom, I too like the simple yet effective dowel for the cabinets. I picked up some spring loaded ones from Amazon like Glenn shows, but I haven't put them in yet. I may result to something like you did instead, anyway its on the do list.

Thumbs up

Thanks Brian, Francesca, and Tim for the kudos on the door prop solution.

Brian (& Tim!) have fun on your respective doodlin' and honey do list

Francesca...those are nice door props...i'll check camping world out in wilsonville on the way down to next weekend's NOG event. I'd have to epoxy a small bit of wood for the lower mount, but still do-able.

cheers,
Thom

Thom, I was thinking what about drilling 2 small holes in the fiberglass lip and screening in a small block of wood to mount it? Heh no "Honey do" list for me...just a "must do" list lol

Thomas,
Why not just flip the cabinet doors and let gravity do your work? That is what I did on my EggCamper, one hand operation.

Other ideas for holding cabinet doors, both open and closed, I have seen folks use rare earth magnets and Velcro. Raz

Yup they did a nice job on the design. Cari has really light items above such as our freeze dried main courses, tea/coffee, and linens. And kept any heavy items below.

Jim, yea we thought of the flip...but didn't want to have the holes to fill/deal with.

Raz, my wife loves doodlin with RE magnets...she might give that a go!

Ah deryk...the single life... no one's list but your own!

It's a small thing, but small things can get really aggravating over time.
The prop solution requires one hand for the dowel and one to hold open the door, which means you have to put down whatever you want to put in or take out of the cabinet. The commercially available props open and hold the door open without you having to do anything.
I'd hate to make holes in a new trailer and then decide that the solution is an issue.

You know...looking at it again, I'm thinkin' your solution is the one that works- the props both Glenn and I posted look like they're for doors that close flat on the frame surface...and from your pics it looks like Parkliner doors are nicely inset so they're flush to that plane. Or is that just my eyes deceiving me?

Side note per your trip to the NOG:

If you're planning to do some Oregon shopping and need a quick overnight in the Wilsonville area, the I-5 rest area has some way-back parking where you can sleep away from freeway noise- access is through the regular parking and winds its way back through two more areas.

Props to Thom once again! (Pun intended) Less than 8 bucks in dowels and hardware and my cabinet doors no longer need to be held up with the top of my head for loading. And yes, when closed, the doors are flush with the fiberglass surface.

Perfectly beautiful, Brian!

But...whatever will you use your head for now?

You may not be old enough to remember, but with all those cupboard doors standing open, I felt just like Andy Griffith in "No Time For Sergeants" when he got all the toilet seats in the latrine to pop to attention for the General.
