I can see how that would be a very good location for a closet.
I was a bit disappointed at first there was no closet. At first,
I told Alan that a person could just put a rod in the shower and
use it for a closet. I didn't realize how much I would enjoy the
toilet so that idea went out the window.

Some years ago I rounded up all my suits and gave them away to
others that couldn't afford to have nice clothes. My dress and my
casual wear are one and the same..........lol A nice pocket t-shirt
and kacky pants. I may wear gym shorts after the sun goes down.

I found a system that works for us. Just the right size tubs that fit
in the cabinets under the entertainment counter. I'll have to get some
shots when I load up again for others to have alternative ideas.

We lost a little counter space as it is under the air conditioner. We find giving up a little counter space a good trade off and the top of the closet provides a useful shelf.
Does that block the window? Can you post a picture of it? I would love to see that solution.

Thanks

Pictures would be great. Now that I've looked at the registry picture
I'm having trouble imagining it as well..............LOL

The window can be placed anywhere in the shell.
Seems the sink would have to move as well.

Attaching some pics of our Paddy...found a great solution to a canopy. Did not want to put holes in fiberglass, instead put canopy over top...it works!

Canopy

Like your canopy-where did you find it.
We havent found one tall enough to clear the height of our door-the huge ones might but we dont need a huge one.
Looks like a comfy set up.

Hi, Carl. I wouldn't recommend pins, as they'll eventually rust. There are products that will fuse two fabrics together with the heat from an iron (although you need to be sure the fabric can also stand the high temperature).

Have a look at No Sew Sewing, for more info... and good luck with it - I can see you're having fun!

We bought it online from Walmart, they delivered it in three days to our door. Greg added the extra height we needed by adding PVC pipes to the poles.

Made it back to Fayetteville, Ark.

Had made plans to stay home and recoup a bit today.
But after church, the wife decided she wanted to get out of the house.
I told her if I were to get out it would be to go get those valances.
Well, I took the long way there (even if I thought it was the short way)
and stopped for some great Mexican Cuisine half way there. I'm stuffed.

I found only two of the matching valances left. Hard to believe so many
have been sold......lol. Anyway, two is all I need and I got what was left.
Maybe they will restock and maybe not, you know Walmart. But now, I
don't care, I've got mine...........LOL

I also found some heavy ornament hangers. And since it's such a seasonal
thing, I picked up more than I need for when I do finally do a little glamping
and want to hang my party lights I bought.

Jane, I love your colorful decor! Walmart doesn't have the trailer decor market entirely wrapped up. My Lil Snoozy is outfitted almost entirely from Ikea. They tend to cater to the small-home concept with a lot of compact storage and organizing products and brightly colored textiles - very inexpensive, too. Will try to post some pics here. I stole Carl's brilliant curtain rod ideas, on mounting to the woodwork, I mean.

[quote]I frequent thrift stores where I have found some unique items including an Elvis pillow, Native American Dream Catcher, baby crib bumper (see photo. I lined my bed with one.) picnic basket, etc. I rarely spend more than $3 per item at thrift stores.[unquote]

Gilda, that baby crib bumper is a great idea.
The Snoozy's can use something like that in the nose.
I'd rather have something like that customized than pillows.
There's plenty of room on all three sides of the mattress.

Thanks Bonita...searching for fun fabrics and treasures is another plus to owning a camper. Carl, like your new hangers and love the tablecloth they are laying on...now, where did you find that?? My camper colors!

Carl, you can use a fusible web tape for attaching your valances to your curtains. It comes in light, medium and heavyweights. Just make sure that you follow the directions and the washing/drying recommendations as well. Alternatively, only sewing it will give you lasting durability. You might want to contact a local home ec class in a high school or even a quilter's club who could do this for you in just a few minutes.
