I think that the right angle at the corner of the lower galley IS vertically strong, much like the closet across the dance floor.
I want the support to look sorta organic-integral to the funky '70s lines of the camper.

It sounds like the trailer I am working on is a bit worse then, as the lower part of the galley leans back a wee bit, and the top is out of level as mentioned. Putting weight on it would only worsen it.

No matter how you bridge from the uppers to the lowers, you could still do an inside lower support down to the frame to ensure no future movement. Myself, I would hate to go to all the trouble I did, just to see further setting in the future. That fibreglass galley is very thing, maybe 1/16".

Anyway, just my thoughts on it after talking it over with a few people, including my brother who is an aeronutical engineer. And maybe a cocktail too!

I want to add compartment doors for access from outside to the area under the rear dinette benches.

Can anyone recommend a size/brand/ type? There is more variety available than I had thought. Plastic? Aluminum?

Allrite in Conyers may be worth a try

I'm working on adding AC Under the left front dinette bench (next to the fridge). My intention was to use the window unit that I bought for my Keys trip with my Dad last year, but I find that it's a little too wide for the space.

After scouting all the local stores for end-of-season deals and finding only xmas stuff (in September! Grrrrrr. ) I ordered a smaller 15"wide unit online. It's supposed to deliver today.

If anyone wants this year-old LG with maybe 100 hours on it, I'll make you a deal! I've long since chucked all the window hardware, so it's really only good for a built-in.

Yes I think they are based out of California but they have a location here in Georgia in the Conyers/Lithonia area. I bought seals for my jalousie windows there.

I should add that they specialize in custom doors and windows.

Thanks, John!

Another question: I'm shopping for a roof fan replacement. Looking at Fan-tastic fans, ran across Maxxair as well.

Anyone have any preferences? Why?

I'm interested in the base model, no remote or rain sensors, maaaaybe reversible. Thoughts?

I bought a standard Heng vent fan wish now we got something different as it doesn't move much air

I have installed the Fantastic fan. Non reversible, and only 3 speeds. It moves lots of air. I was napping in the afternoon, by the only open window. It was like a breeze was constantly blowing over me. If someone opened the door, my breeze went away, and I realized how hot it actually was.
I have two Maxxair fans, waiting to be installed. The motor is slightly higher amperage, so in theory, it should move more air, but due to its less straight air path, I would be happy if it just moved as much air as the Fantastic fan. The additional complexity comes with the ability to run the fan in the rain. Nice!
Speed control, and a reverse switch can be added later, if you are comfortable doing some wiring.

I did the exact same thing. Tiny fan and noisy.

David, I don't understand what you mean by less straight air path and running in the rain. Guess I need to research more, I thought it was just a different brand of a similar item.

On the deluxe model, the cover on the fan is longer then the 14" vent opening. The inlet for the air is on the bottom of the cover. The fan exhausts, (or draws) air through the bottom of the cover. This allows the fan to operate in the rain.
