Tammie's ParkLiner projects

Wanted to share some projects we've finished, just in time for a spring break trip. We've added a glass tile backsplash, using a bit of aluminum trim to finish the edge near the door, and swapped out the kitchen faucet for one with a little more height. It's an American Standard Colony bar sink (bar sinks don't have the pop-up drain assembly) with the same span to fit the existing drilled holes in the countertop.
To maximize counter space, we covered the cooktop with a 15"x 20" bamboo serving tray, topped with a cutting board the same size. We countersunk small magnets in the back of the cutting board, which stick to metal squares glued to the bottom of the tray. They stay together, but can still be used separately.
The curtains are new, too. I liked the original ParkLiner curtains with their velcro-tabbed tiebacks, and using them as a pattern, made new ones out of Sunbrella, like the originals. The difference is in how easily the new ones glide across the rod. Instead of a rod pocket which is difficult to scrunch up enough to move aside, the new curtains are hung on the rod by hidden loop tabs on the back, spaced about 5 inches apart. You could probably add those tabs to the original curtains- I made new ones just for a different color. Does that make me a glamper?

Very nice Tammie! My wife and I are scheduled to pick up our new Parkliner mid April. Always enjoy seeing how individuals are customizing their campers, particularly Parkliners! Thanks for sharing the pics.

Hi Deryk,
Here are the pics of the countertop extension. When folded down, there is just enough clearance for our 2 inch memory foam mattress topper.

Really like the backsplash.
Bamboo tray is a nice touch.

one more mod...we added spring loaded supports to the upper cabinets. I saw this method used on a sailboat to hold open a hatch.

Thanks, Carl. Here's a link to the serving tray on Amazon:

Just the right size to cover the Suburban two-burner cooktop. (I do have to remove the knobs and keep them in the kitchen drawer)

Great job Tammie! I think Im going to have to do something as a counter top extention. When cooking i could use an extra place to put down a pot. I got the burner cover when I went down to ParkLiner as one of my "upgrades" Helped balance out the cost of the fuel to drive down there imho lol.

The spring loaded latches are a great idea too....I need to do something hate useing my head to keep them open while looking inside lol.!

We also added a pegboard wall to the closet. There are four bolts protruding into the closet from the door mounts, so I used them to bolt on a sheet of pegboard. I supported the pegboard with a 1 X 4 board glued and screwed to the backside along one long edge. It is stiff enough to hold reasonable weight. I had to drill out the depth of the 1 x 4 to accept the bolts, so I should have used some 1/2 inch stock. Anyway, it is a good place to put the fire extinguisher instead of bolted over the sink area.

Looks like some fun pre-season projects Tammie.
I've been pondering building a similar galley extension in our #35.

Happy Trails and enjoy the upcoming season.
