That's beautiful. So you sleep on the renovated bunkbed area, because you removed the bunkbed cushion and were able to get enough surface area? It's very interesting what you did. You can now actually sit down at the dinette (which you can't do with the big table that supports it as a bed/mattress). And you made part of it hold a shelf. It's very pretty.

Otherwise--one could make a big bed out of the dinette area, and then make a dinette where the bunkbed is. I wish someone would show me that mod.

Ah ha. I have another question. In my burro, the carpet strip above is surrounded by a fiberglass lip.
How can you put bamboo up there, and a trim? I guess it all has to go INSIDE the fiberglass lip?
Thanks.

Yes, Jen, the area where I put the grasscloth shade material is recessed from the fiberglass ceiling, so I installed in that recessed area. In the UHaul, my front couch is actually 2 storage units separated by an open area (where I have a porta potty). There is a wood piece that spans across the two storage units and forms the couch. If I wanted a front dinette, I would only have to remove that wood piece and install smaller cushions on top of the storage units, and then a pedistal table in between. It would be a really simple project. And of course, I'd install a round table!
Oh, Cindy L, I love your chandelier!!

I bought a small fold-up glass bistro table with 2 chairs that I have been using outside for the last couple of years. Last weekend I brought it into the Biggar now that I have room. I took out the table that was in there before and love this one, not only for the look but also practicality. I move it out of the way at night and the dog sleeps there.

Ok, so I've gotten my front couch modified to a 2 person dinette, complete with relocating my round pedestal glass top table. I really like how it looks. My back dinette will be turned into full time bed.

I also modified my upper cabinet and closet doors in a 'reversable' manner. I added padded fabric with ribbons and baubles to the doors. In order to not damage the front of the doors, I hot-glued the fabric to the inside of them. So I can just heat up the glue and gently clean it off when I get tired of the fabric.

It also means I'm not storing unused parts of the camper anywhere. the doors are still in use, but I have a whole new look. I'll post photos of the doors installed on the cabinets this weekend.
luving this!

Looks Great Pam! I think I want a shadow box table for my side dinette so I can tuck memento's in it.

look at lots of pictures, and pick out what you like.

Some people go way overboard for me... this old scotty trailer and like every inch was scotty dog this and scotty dog that... was way over the top. But she built a bookshelf above the couch and it had a wooden scottydog bookend, then routed a groove down the middle of the bookshelf and an adjustable knob so you can slide the bookend to the books and tigten the knob and it held the books in place while traveling. Now that I liked alot.
