Don't ask me how I know this.
Sounds like a story there.

First thing I did was to add another receptacle to the right of the front bed.

Congratulations! Can't go wrong with hooks! There's not a lot of storage or capacity. We love out 17Z! We also put a couple of "Shoe hanger" type things on each side of the bathroom door. A good flat strap and it works well. Bathroom sundries on one side, kitchen tools and general storage on the other. There's a couple of cool mods on this site also! Have fun!

Found my post about the over the door hanger.
Here's the link if you are interested. Really easy and simple way to add some storage.

One of the first things we did was to install a small magnetic bar for our knifes and a utility bar on the wall. I attached both using rivets. After several bumpy trips, everything stays in place just fine.

Can you elaborate on using rivets to attach to the walls?

Thanks!
