Welcome! We have an original 85 Uhaul that has made many memories for us in the past 5 years. I dream about doing some special touches some day, and enjoy seeing what others do. I will watch for updates on your mods.

Hi Dan, welcome.

No worries about your English, it is much better to understand than many who speak it as a first language.

Cool bed modification. A member of the Escape forum did a similar thing to her 17' Escape to get more leg room for the two of them.

We have an '86 13' boler and we've been sleeping that way for about 7 years. We have one small dog, and a cat who sleep on the bed so we had to make it bigger. During the day our slide-out slips back under the bed on "c" channels and we pop the little extension mattress up on the bed so the furbabies can sit up there looking out the window. Then we have our full floor space back for during the day. We converted our couch/bunk beds at the front into 3-way couch/bunkbeds/table and seating for two at the same time so the big dinette stays down as a bed. We topped that new bed off with memory foam and it's actually more confortable than our "in the house" bed.
Sleeping 90 degrees from normal makes for lots of room where our bodies are and who cares about our feet? The 36" width there works just fine.
I posted pics and instructions on how we did it a couple of years ago but have no idea where to look for them now.
We just finished putting two 5/8" square aluminum tubes curved to the proper shape, on the inside of our roof to prop it back up after an over-load of ice and snow and the addition of a Fantastic Fan made it sag over 2". These new additions are working really well and the roof is back to it's original height. We installed them on the inside right over the carpet and you really don't even notice them.
Lots of luck with your travels.

Thank you very much to all of you for your kindly feedback. I will keep you in touch when I have finished my mods. It will take some time because it is so cold here in winter.

They always look so sad when they're covered in snow like that

Forgot the dining table/microwave section.

Small dining table added with a shelf replacing the top bunker bed hinge and added a microwave shelf with LED fixture under the shelf. We really like this setup which is optimized for 2 people only.

Very nice! Love the colors! I want to do something like that to the ugly carpet on our ceiling.

Yes, yes, the two red cushions on the bed are for this purpose. I will post pics of the bed in extended position later.

Thanks. This is a Insignia DVD player. It is also connected to a second screen located on the bottom of the shelf over the bed.
