mod for swivel chair removal in Casita Freedom

I have removed one of the swivel chairs in my Freedom Deluxe Casita and am looking for ideas, pictures on storage for that area ( it is the back chair I removed) so the fuse box needs to have accessibility and the tire well is also in the picture. I'd appreciate any ideas.. thanks

Elaine,

There's quite a few threads on this forum and a couple of Casita forums with posts from people that converted their trailer to a Spirit Deluxe by purchasing parts from Casita, and others who just built something similar of plywood.

Try Googling "Casita Freedom conversion".

Here's a picture from a converted one that was sold this year.

Agree on checking out what others have done on the Casita forum, I just saw some good DIY's on this same subject. It can be done successfully. Good luck. Do a search here as well.

While the seats have storage, it sounds like you could keep going up vertically until you run into the ceiling. It sounds like a cool idea. I'll be interested to see what comes of this.

It should be fairly straight forward to make a small closet between the bulkhead and the side window. I would remove the bulkhead to use as a pattern and go with some 1/2 plywood to reduce weight. You could do a wider base on the bottom then a narrower one on the top to miss the window. I would try to do internal mounting only so not to have to drill holes in the shell but if you do have to drill holes then snap caps and screws would work. I am not sure if Casita offers custom doors but if you have the table saw working, it may be a good time for a face-lift and replace all the doors to lighten the load. That MDF is damn heavy. The bulkhead is screwed inside the upper front cabinet and the rear bench seat (at least on mine). Once it is unscrewed it just slides out. I did a remake a few years ago in pine and it was 1/3 the weight.
