Our 184BH Mods

Hi,

just wanted to share our 184BH mods (which the ideas coming from this forum )

1. Changed all the bulb to LEDs
2. Corner Shower holders
3. Key Hooks
4. Door towel Holders
5. Dual Propane Holder (no picture yet LOL forgot to take one)
6. Bed Frame Support (it seems the table is being supported by the wood with 3 screws each side) lol
7. added another plywood on top of the existing seat plywoods

Future Mod Plan:
1. Put in the support to change bed/table. I saw it in this forum (just need to search for it again LOL)
2. Door on the bench to access the storage quicker
3. LED Strip Light outside
4. Surge Protector
5. Bathroom Fan
6. Axle Flip (still deciding LOL)
7. Permanent Front Stabilizing Jacks.
8. Fridge Fan.
9. .....

Nice mods! We are just getting ready for our big trip of the summer (10 days down to South Dakota) and once we are ready I will take some photos and share of the mods we've done in our 2012 184BH as well, which include:

- removal of top bunk and built shelf above the bunk
- TV installation on bunk wall
- quick access to the hard to reach hidden spots in the cupboards above the counter and couch
- upgraded the plywood on the seats/bunk
- cut out an opening into dinette seat beside the door for shoe storage/easier access

and we are currently building a new table and insert for the dinette to make the bed to table conversion easier! I just ordered LED's today, hopefully they will be here by Friday, if not, will change them out when we get home. We usually camp in fully serviced locations so we don't worry immensely about battery usage.

Nah. We like it frosty. The hubby is pretty sad that we don't have the window over the dinette though, lol.

The shade came IKEA in Vancouver and it's just the right size for that window.

That seems like a familiar list of upgrades!

Thanks. thinking of the TV installation on the bunk wall, does it have any support behind it?, I think there's on where the upper bunk is screwed in but dont feel anything above it. I haven't used the stud finder yet to check LOL. Not on top of the list yet hahah
