Dinette Bench Access Door Mod

With storage at a premium in a small TT, the dinette bench is simply a waste of space. You just can get to it without major effort moving cushions, table and occupants around.

I ordered a standard upper cabinet door and hardware from my local Jayco Dealer and went to town. Total cost was about $50.....but I felt it was worth it all said and done. I thought about how I should I swing the door for about a week. Swinging left or right created access challenges. The best decision for us was swinging downward. It's right by the front door so I wanted easy access from standing outside as well inside

Cant wait to put it to use in few weeks.

Great job and great way to get at the space. Looks like it came from the factory that way.
