I went a slightly different route to create an outside shelf for the side of the trailer. Since I already had a full-sized rimmed aluminum baking sheet pan, that wouldn' fit in my home oven and was basically useless, I adapted it for a new purpose. It has now become my new wheel well table. I did have to notch the rim "bead" on the sheet pan so it would slide into the Keder rail, but it sits in the rail perfectly. And it sits right next to my outside convenience outlet for a handy plug-in if I want to use my toaster oven.

Two pieces, which just slip together, so it doesn't add much weight or take up much space when not in use. The sheet pan lives in the little gap at the foot of my sideways permanent rear bed, against the wall below the TV shelf. The leg just lives in the front closet when not set up. I just made the base structure from some aluminum scraps I had left over from other projects. The Keder rail section was also left over from my new slide-in awning rail, also on the side of the trailer. Pretty much turned out as a no-cost addition.

It's simple, light-weight, easy to set up and it's strong. How strong you might ask? Well, after setting it up I "load tested" it by sitting my 220 Lb. carcass on it, and it didn't even groan.

Hooks, canít have too many hooks!

We inherited a few nice tweaks with our Ď08 Spirit Deluxe. Our favorite is the copious use of stick-on plasticcv hooks in the entry, above the dinette and kitchen, in the rear, for hanging up keys, jackets, hats, towels ó all stuff that would sit on a table or counter or have to be put away when youíll just need it right away.
Another is a simple plastic bar that screws onto the door below the sink, which you hang a throwaway shopping bag on for trash. Convenient and out of the way.

I would never use that particle board for prepping anything on that I would eat, but it worked well to fashion into a new hatch door for my lower cabinet. The pop-up latches are available on-line. I bought a bag of them on Amazon. The hinges are standard 1/2" offset cabinet hinges, and can be found in the hardware section at any Lowes or Home Depot, etc.

If you don't have an extra piece of that "fake wood," that Casita uses, you could probably contact Casita and tell them what size piece you want. I'm sure they would sell you a chunk, but I can't say what shipping would cost.

I wouldn't want to use a particle board cover as a cutting board, either, so perfect reuse there. Unfortunately, ours didn't come with one.


We've already cut the hole under the closet and put a shelf between the bottom of the closet and top of the drawer beneath. Hubby wants a pull out drawer rather than an opening door for that bottom opening. I've been eyeing those cord/plumbing covers in various places and, if nothing else, may use one of the "wood" pull up access covers on top of the dinette seats and replace that with plywood. No one will ever see that and then we can have a matching door below the closet.



The one thing I'm having trouble finding is some edge trim that can fit over the cuts in the fiberglass. He did a great job doing the cuts, but he'd like to have that trim to finish it off before putting the slide out door in.


Thanks so much for the info!

Go the the bath section of Lowes/Home Depot; there is an edge trim that used over the rigid stuff used to make showers. Works great on the fiberglass edge.
