More x213 Mods

Had some storage issues with my x213 so created a few storage areas:
1. Added a wood trim ledge to front bunk ledge - can store books and toys there when traveling
2. Added a wood trim ledge to the TV shelf. Also changed the TV mount to a swing-arm bracket mounted though microwave cupboard (removed microwave and put reinforcing wood behind). This give lots to storage on the old TV shelf and the TV is much more viewable. Note there is a velcro strap around the TV/bracket to hold it in place when traveling.
3. Moved the stereo up to the space above it and created a storage space where it was mounted. Trimmed the new opening with wood to cover holes from stereo mounting holes. I use 1/8" mahogany plywood to create the sides/top of the new enclosure.
4. Moved the "back" of the shelf under the sink behind the p-trap instead of in front of it. This gives about 8" more depth to the shelf - enough for cookie sheets and pans.

It's just amazing how much space is waisted by fast construction.

Kind of like, do you want it...
FAST, GOOD, or CHEAP? Pick two.

Nice work! Have enjoyed following your mods, might even get enough courage to do some myself one day.

Looks good. I've been looking at a couple of your mod threads, you do nice work. Looks like my 254 has a very similar floor plan to yours, so I will probably be doing a couple of these. I had already started thinking about the radio mod, after I pulled the radio to see why it was not working and realized the amount of space. I picked up some molding this evening on the way home from work to try the front shelf mod.

I just opened up the box on the lower bunk bed. That area is huge. It's measures 30" deep 84" long and varies from 10"-22" wide. I'm lining the area with plastic and I added a piano hinge to the top. I am making this a toy bin for my kids. This is the largest waste of space I could find in my 2015 X213.

I would love to see the photographic experience. Are you going to post some pics? This was my year to try what you just did.

When I was looking at the 2009 X213 model I noticed that too. One of the models had a small door access for the sewer hose I think... There wasn't anything in the one I was looking at. I was thinking a great place for the electrical stuff for adding more batteries on the tongue just on the other side of the wall...

We didn't need the bunks so was thinking of converting that area into an office L-shaped desk and hutch for my Radios and Computers... Wall in a wall just inside the outside door for small storage of outside things...

something like this haha...


We never did get the X213...
