OK, I'll go first

You can see the mods I did to our previous hybrid and current Jayco by clicking on the webshot link in my sig.

C'mon, share what did to your rig.

You are certainly a handyman!!!
Nice job on making your Jayco to your taste!!!
I have a few MOD's of my own, but nowhere near the extent you have made. Perhaps my next TT will have a few MODs that I can post pictures and make recommendations!
NICE WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven't had the chance to do any mods yet, but when in warms up I hope to replace the pleated shower accordian door with a shower curtain (current door is nasty at the bottom), replace the vinyl in the kitchen and the carpet in living room, slide and bathroom with hard surface flooring (probably Allure Vinyl flooring). I also intend on getting a roll of eternabond and cover all the caulkable areas on the roof. I'll post pics when/if it happens.

Holy Cow are we looking to do mods! We picked up our new Jayco in Sept and traveled straight away for the next three weeks. Then it was just a weekend or two because I took on my daughter's grade 1/2 class while she endured a disability leave for a month then another 6 weeks (current) for maternity leave. We haven't done any mods, but are really looking forward to seeing what folks have done and then attempting them on our own come June when we can *really* hit the road once again (planned with our older granddaughers btw)!

So bring on those pics all ya'all (sorry, trying to apeal to all those Texans out there LOL)

Howdy all,
I totally lucked out with the pleated shower curtain. A buddy of mine purchased a new to him Jayco travel trailer (really nice). It had a small tub/shower, so he removed his pleated shower curtain door and replaced it with one of those expanding shower curtain rods. He gave me his pleated shower curtain door, and with little modifications, it fit my rig just fine.

We've had our Jayfeather tt for 9 months now and have made a few mods ourselves. For starters, we removed all of the wooden "curtain" frames around the windows. I sewed curtains to replace them - made things much more open and better privacy than the shades. Also did alot of over-the-door things: took a clear plastic OTD shoe rack and cut it in half. Hung one on each of our bedroom wardrobe doors to store undies and socks...used the

used the 3M hooks for the wall and hung a shoe bag inside a wardrobe near the bathroom for toiletry supplies...magnetic paper towel holder on the side of the stove hood...IKEA cutting board fits exactly over the burners of the stove, creating more countertop space....just a few ideas for you guys!
