DW insisted I do this. While in place I screwed the center board to the left door from the inside after removing the latches. Then took out the top and bottom screws and cut through the bracing board. Left a little overhang to act as a doorstop.

Thats a great idea. I ordered shelf brackets like the ones in the outside kitchen for the 2 wardrobes so I can add shelving in there. I like the open look. The drawers you added are great too. Wish I had the tools and ambition.

Scott, it's not that hard to do. I'm following Tom's lead myself.
I'm starting with the dinette drawers.




BTW, after reading this post below, I would suggest everyone add some support under your dinette seats.
http://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f1...led-35807.html

Both long side supports are Only held on by staples. Also the cross-members are only stapled on too. So I added support under the side rails, drilled & screwed the cross-members and added screws to the side rails as well.

Agreed, the dinette construction is weak, will be addressing that and also adding shelves to the rear wardrobe. Maybe after that I'll take a breather and actually try camping lol

Dave, what length screws are you using? I have some work to do. Need to stabilize those myself. I bought gift wrapping storage boxes to put under my dinette, so I can take advantage of the whole space. I do like to drawers though, but the tools and $$ are th eissue

Tom, you'll be enjoying all of your work while relaxing at a campsite soon!

Scott, I have 1 1/4" screws. The only one that is not fully screwed down, is the front, right-hand side rail screw. That one would poke through the outside because of the side board that is exposed. I just screwed it until I started to feel it on the outside before it poked through, then backed it out a turn. All of the others have plenty of additional depth behind them.
If you ever decide you want some drawers, I'll be glad to help. You're close enough to me to bring to rig over someday and bang out a few drawers


BTW, I have pictures but Photobucket is not linking them today!

Dave...

Screen + high temp duct tape and/or glue gun = no bugs where I don't want them!

Used aluminum screen for the water heater cover, and flexible fiberglass for fridge and bumper caps.
