Hi All

I have been following all these great topics since we bought a 1973 Trillium 13'.
Some time back there was a discussion about cutting away part of the sink and most of the closet in order to increase the bed width to 60" (queen). I can no longer find that discussion, but wanted to put out my thoughts to see if anyone had any ideas.
Here is a drawing of what I have in mind.

I have heard that the shell might be pretty loose without the stiffening of the closet and sink support, so I was planning on leaving about 2" of the closet sides and sink support side and "sistering" shaped plywood onto the remaining stubs for stiffening. I know from the lost thread that someone in Ontario did just this, but do not know how it worked out.

Also I have done a printed circuit board layout for tail, turn and license plate lights using modern very bright LEDs. If anyone is interested, I would be happy to share.
