I was thinking of doing the same. Just been trying to work up the courage.
I was thinking of buying a proper sized cabinet door, nice quality of course, and then cut and fit. If you take this project on, would you post a few pix of the process and completion. Not sure I would be satisfied if I were to make my own doors. I'm not really that talented w/the saws.

Hey Hitch Pin!

We got a 154bh last spring and love it. We took it on a 4800-mile trip out to Colorado, over the continental divide, back through Kansas & Missouri, and home to Michigan. It towed fine with our Chrysler Town & Country, and, overall, we loved it. We've got two boys (7&9), and the bunk bed arrangement was perfect for them.

The only limitation as far as we were concerned was the size of the gray water tank. Showering fills it up fast, but we tended to move every couple of nights, so we'd hit the dump-station on the way by. For the most part, we avoided RV parks and stayed in state- and national parks.

For 4 people, the interior is cozy. We tended just to sleep inside and/or hole up during bad weather. We finished more than 3 weeks later sleeping every night in the trailer still friends.

we have the 184, took out all the thin plywood and replaced it with 3/4 inch. cut the new plywood in smaller sections so that you dont have to remove the whole piece to access an area. also installed touch lights in the cabinets that were so dark you could not see inside without a flashlite. found the dinette table very awkward to use under the bed, and too large to sit around comfortably. purchased a smaller table at target and use the original table for outside use. cut 3 pieces of plywood to use under the dinette bed. when not in use they store under the bunk mattress. have had the tt for a few months, and overall are very happy with it. good luck with the new tt. happy camping!

We had an SLX 145RB last year and liked it so much we got a White Hawk this year.

The 145 was so simple and basic we never had an issue. The White Hawk has a few problems but none so serious they require us to have the unit down for service instead of available for travel.

I'm sure you'll enjoy the SLX 154BH.

If you do what do you think of it over all ?
Hope I'm doing this right. Yes we also have a 154BH and love the easy tow. Did a 6,000 mile trip this past spring and planning another one for spring 2016.

I hate to say it, but here goes. When we bought this trailer it was kinda late in the year, we brought it straight home from the dealership, washed and waxed it and put a cover on it.

As soon as spring came we uncovered it and went inside and my wife laid down in the bed and said there was no way that she could sleep in the trailer, because it was too enclosed around the bed, she has claustrophobic real bad.

So I went and talked to the dealership where we bought it, and told them what had happened, to my surprise they said they would take the trailer back, it still had all the stickers on the windows and all the tags still hanging on the cabinets when we took it back.

Believe it or not they gave me everything back that I paid for the trailer toward a new one, couldn't ask for anything more than that.
