VW Hybid

Now there's a thought. Those new hybrid TTs don't have anything on the VW.

I was thinking of something like this modified for my door. So that I could have a front room, rather than a back room.

New Front Room

Suz,

Are you thinking of the tent as an entryway to the Casita? Might work if you come up with a seal connecting the tent, doorway and threshold -- elsewise, bug city.

If decide to go with the rear hatch thought, here is another vendor.

Entry

Benita,

Actually, I won't have a large enough opening out of the back. Originally, I gave a lot of consideration about adapting the SUV tent to the door opening. It should be quite easy and would be a great little ante room.

I've done a lot of research on many different awnings and think that I have just about come up with one that will suit my purposes. There is also a possibility that I could use an add-a-room with it. Something that I didn't think was possible before.

Still working on it, but should know soon.

Oh, foot I thought you were talking about those little doors to get into the storage part. (not that these *tent thingies* aren't cute) I need two doors, no taller than 11 inches. :wak e-bay had some big enough for a saint bernard. I want a toy poodle size. Don't they sell these new somewhere?

mini table

The rest of my table scraps are used up now....the little dinette table was cut down to a 16"x20" mini table. The hub was mounted off center (like me) so the table can be rotated for diferent uses. The floor socket came from the local RV shop and was easily holesawed into the floor. This is the day table/large nite stand mode.

Here is food prep mode. with the top twisted it will clear the drawer. Note the larger radiused galley shelf by the stove cut from big table scraps. I used the old shelf for a drawer counter.

The table is stored under the bedboard and can be partially slid out to offer a small nite stand or dinette end table.

These metal shelf channels are stick-taped to the bedboard and rubber lined to make a snug friction fit. The battery disconnect is wired in line to the battery hot lead from the converter.
