Some mods of 1990 Casita

Photo 1- Vinyl Alure Flooring over carpet. The kind that stick together.
Photo 2- Levolor Blinds (Mocha) with magnets to hold bottom in place.
Photo 3- Wire Shelves. Oak 1x2 bolted to back wall for support. White coated chain.
Photo 4-Locking Battery Box. 2 wires on the side through the factory 1/2" hole. One for charger and the other for solar panel. Box is large enough for two batteries. I had to rework the tongue area to make it fit. No welding involved, done with cordless drill with grinding/cutting discs, reciprocating saw and aluminum angles.

There are many others like the platform for the A/C is done in white Trex, light blocking cover for roof vent done with a piece of FRP and attached with velcro, kitchen utensil rack with bungie cord, faux stain glass on kitchen and bath windows (not sure how well this will hold up), and exterior cleaned with Bar Keepers Friend and 4 coats of Zep Wet Floor Polish. Sliding door for under extended side bed. I added aluminum angle under bed extension to keep it from bowing in middle which also kept the door from opening. Hence a sliding door. Two mesh baskets in closet. Everything here was purchased at Home Depot.

I bolted a 1x2 oak boards to the wall and used the plastic clips that are made for the wire shelves to mount the wire shelves to them. The left side I drilled holes in the wood partition wall for the wire shelves to fit into. I installed 2 eyebolts through the roof for the top shelf and attached it to the eyebolts with coated chain. And used chain as well to attach the
lower shelf to the top shelf. All items can be found Home Depot or Lowes.
