Sexy, very sexy!

Yes it twas I that came up with all those wonderful ideas, yes it surly was.

My dust ruffle came from the 99 cent only store, whacked it to size and attached with thumb tacks. As Fred says EZ PZ.

You must get a red porch light.

Looks great Gina. If I had kept my front goucho model I had wanted a front dinette also. Definately the way to go.

Gina,
Would you be able to post pictures of your TV setup and your heater? We're trying to figure out the best way to do these things in our Burro. Right now we're using the table (like yours) for the TV, but we'd like to find a better way.

Also, we tried our propane catalytic heater while in Yellowstone and found that it caused the walls to drip water! Would a small electric heater be better?

Kevin

Hi Kevin,

here is a link to the heater and install

Wave 3 heater

The TV install pics were lost in the hack, but I could try more.

The one I got is no longer made and it was an eBay closeout thing.

Thanks. Your plans are very good! Our Black Cat does a nice job for quick warm-ups, but I'm really concerned about the condensation inside. Does anyone have one of those small ceramic electric heaters? I know you would need a plug-in or a generator, but these should solve the condensation problem, I think.

Kevin, I use a cube heater when I have AC and no, they don't leave any condensation.

With a Cat heater, you need to leave one or two windows cracked about an inch. This is not only for your safety, but it also helps with the condensation.

I leave the one in the door by the heater cracked, and the one above my head when in bed.

With me and 2 dogs, the condensation has gotten really bad anyway, especially if it's raining out. Leaving the windows open helps quite a bit.

It' the nature of propane.

Really nice looking mod, Gina!

Just this morning I was thinking about Gina sitting in my front dinette at Bandon and talking about needing one of her own. I guess she wasn't kidding!!!

Gina,
We like our front table too. I bought a TV tray and suggested that we cut the legs off a chair, but I bought a set of chairs on ebay that didn't fit. Kevin A (my hubby) found a set at Goodwill. He ordered swivels, took the legs off the chairs and attached it to the front supports. Walmart proviced the chair pads. We just lift them off when we need to access the storage, but we would like to make doors like you did.
Those front mods are really great, aren't they? I love your reds.

Gina I love the front dinette mod idea. You did an excellent job. I just recently (3 weeks ago) bought my first 78 Boler trailer and I just love that idea and now want to do that in mine as well. Thanks for the creative idea.
