I'm sure I'm not the first person to think of these mods, but here is my running list. I really enjoyed modding my 1995 Coleman Cedar popup, and couldn't wait to start modding my 2016 Jay Flight 19RD. I welcome your feedback, tweaks, and suggestions!
Sink/Cutting Board Mod
- Sink/Cutting Board Mod
- Pass-thru Tool Storage Mod
I did a similar mod to my old popup sink when the factory sink cover started delaminating. On that camper, I bought a hardwood cutting board at the supermarket, and simply mounted the factory pegs to the bottom in roughly the same spots. Basically, I replaced one rectangle with another. For this mod, I bought a 14" x 17" Dexas SuperBoard®
poly cutting board at the local HEB supermarket. I like the granite-look finish as it goes nicely with the dark finish of our counters.
I used cardboard to make a template of the factory DuoForm 60/40 sink. I then cut down the poly cutting board with a jigsaw, and used a palm sander (100 grit) to slightly bevel the edges. Then I VERY carefully ran a MAPP torch around the edges to slightly melt and smooth the plastic for an "almost factory" finish. A search of the forums revealed that Mike837go
did a similar mod.

Pass-thru Tool Storage Mod
On the right side of the front pass-thru storage under the wardrobe, I mounted a piece of 1/8" plywood vertically. I then fastened Lehigh Grip Clips 13200 (small)
and 13201 (medium)
to hold my setup and towing tools. The torpedo levels are hanging on simple brass cup hooks. The WDH tool rests in re-purposed clamps from a D-Cell Maglight®
