Hi Gilda! The window treatment has a rod pocket on a regular curtain rod. It is stationary and we have light blocking shades behind them we pull down for privacy. Happy camping. Marilyn.

Does anyone know if it's necessary to glass the back of the shelf as shown in Dondon's sketch? I'm thinking another set of hinges on top and bottom of the shelf in the middle would keep it from flipping forwards or backwards while storing items. I'm not real confident on how to lay FG at all....

We opted for a basket that fits the space perfectly. We use a luggable loo which rides in the tow vehicle and we move it into the camper at bedtime. We were talking about this the other day because we're not sure we need the extra storage so we might just go with a new porta potti. The loo is too tall.

Dondon's,

If you get a PP, be sure and measure your space. I bought one that was too tall and I had to order a smaller one.

Don, first your trailer is really nice. It looks very homey, comfortable and tasteful. i thought the hassock might be hiding a luggable loo before you explained it. We just purchased a small porta-potti for the Scamp. This one is one of the smallest with great reviews. If you measure your space, here are the actual dimensions: 12.2" tall, 13.4" wide and 15" deep (front to back). Link:

Hope this helps.

Tom

The model number should be 260 B not 260 P as the link above states. They are similar, but the 260 P is a marine model with mounting brackets for the floor. The 260 B does not have them or the fluid level window shown in the Amazon picture. You want the Thetford 260 B for campers. Hope this isn't too confusing.

What a fantastic job you did on your little Burro! Oh Thank you for sharing this and the WORD!!!!!!
By the way I always carry a large tarp also, it gives a lot more covered living area,
mine is 30 yrs old and full of duct tape repairs, yours looks a little well used also. LOL!

Dee,
It was a close call! Propane lantern caught on fire and we didn't have a fire extinguisher! WE DO NOW!

Dondon,

I love your mods!! I'm going to copy your shelf ideas over the winter. Questions: what type of screw (?) did you use to attach those brackets to the wall? What kind of wood are your shelves?

Even though I recovered my cushions, I think I am going to commit to a permanent bed setup after viewing your pictures. Thanks for posting!

Dondon,

I realize that you didn't install those shelves, but can you tell by looking at the hinges how they were attached to the wall?

Just wanted to clarify.....

Does Maryilyn hire out her consulting skills???? This looks great, are you going to post some reveal photos? Why did you decide to make the bed permanent and thereby lose your dinette? Would love to hear your ideas!
