Little shelves

I similarly have one over the regular door of our Scamp and one over each of the rear side windows. Very nice for storing small things. The top of each window provides wonderful support for a little shelf.

I take a piece of aluminum angle painted black and mount it using the window's existing screws. I also anchor one end of the shelf thru the existing cabinets.

The shelf over our door, besides providing a small shelf, has a number of hooks in it's face for keys, flash lights and a digital tire gauge.

Hi: Pam Garlow... I do simple... really well. The hardest part was going to the Trim Shop to get the piece of Oak stock.
I finished it just in time for storage...so haven't even used it yet.

Doorway Shelf

Unfortunately we don't have a screen door to support a door way shelf. Our solution was to attach a support to one side of the doorway and to attach the other end to the closet beside the door.

We use this shelf for our Escapee Badges and other small items like locking clips. As well we have five hooks, used for keys, flash lights, digital pressure gauge and a digital Infrared thermometer.

The peice of red yarn is there to remind us to duck. The reality is we never consciously see the yarn but must see it sub consciously because we never hit the door frame. Actually there are a number of pieces of red yarn around the trailer.

By the way that green flashlight is a real winner, 24 LEDs on the front side.

Notice our LED on the closet.

Hi: honda03842... Thanks for the pic. I think for our Boler project I'll drill out the rivets holding the rain cap over the door and replace them with S/S screws and weatherseal washers into the back of the piece of wood.
Then I can hang a flashing neon sign "DUCK".

Alf,

The flashing neon would work but I'll stick with the yarn since they've become invisible to my eyes in a sense but not my brain.....

When we had jalousie windows Ginny put some on the outside to prevent 'others' from bumping into them. It's amazing how people can bump into the usual but not the unusual.
