The table top is covered in Blue Naugahyde.

We have added a shelf over the front window for increased storage. The lip kept the items in place, even after some over-steering avoidance maneuvers. The gray bag on the left holds the 2-burner stove. A small suitcase fits in the center. The yellow block is the 12 volt outlet that is charging my cell phone, and on the right is the Endless Breeze fan that goes in the front screen window of the pop-up area.

I have read over the years that many people with 13' trailers prefer to cook outside. The only thing we want to make indoors is coffee, so there is room on the counter for a coffeemaker.

The Compact Jr. is a good match for our Honda Odyssey.

Cool Added features...

I decided we needed air conditioning. A friend gave me a used portable air conditioner, but it's so big... then I got the idea to think outside the box! I went to Home Depot's plumbing & heating section and found all of the parts I needed to make this work.The Chimney vents the hot outside exhaust away from the cool outside intake. In operation the metal becomes too hot to touch, thus the reflectix wrap. Reflectix is also placed inside the top's canvass with the screens zipped closed, when you want a barrier and not ventilation. The air conditioner (and it's vents) ride inside the trailer bungied to the center bunk legs.
We did not need it on Thursday or Friday, but on Saturday it was over 90 outside. Inside the trailer stayed 65 with the A/C running.

I love your creative AC solution, you are definitely a member of the "where there is a will there is a way" club.
