Same thoughts re: "Entertainment Center" here, Pf
If you come up with some "innovative shelving, or", please share ideas and pics. We currently store some infrequently used "things" up there, in plastic containers.
I installed some dark solar-tint film behind the patterned-glass doors. This prevents being able to see what's being stored there. The dark color also ties in neatly with coloration of TV Screen. (Pics didn't turn out well enough to post)
Little by Little, we're getting the unit "personalized" to our tastes.

Good idea on the tint. I bet it looks good. We use that storage for the same thing. Mine is at the dealer getting the decal on the fridge access door replaced and just about all the slide seals changed. When I get it back I may go ahead and tint those windows and look into the storage solution. I got to test my sewer hose storage and cup holders last weekend and they worked great.

I must have missed reading 'bout your cupholders, and sewer hose storage.
I installed a six inch plastic pipe with screw-on end caps, beneath the coach, and behind rear wheels. It's full width of Coach.
This nicely stores a 20' +length of sewer hose, plus two lengths of 4" perforated, plastic pipe halved longitudinally. I use the lengths of 4" pipe to neatly support the sewer hose running from Coach to "dump", when in a full-service RV site. Works well.
I won't be back to RV for a couple of days, but will try to get some pics of install.

Tinting the glass is a good idea. I put a small motion-sensor LED light just inside the double doors to provide some light when I'm digging around. Mostly we use it for clothes storage for longer trips...more immediate/daily use items are stored in the cabinet by the bed and the wardrobe.
We went to The Container Store and got stackable storage cubes with slide out drawers for both the wardrobe and smaller bedroom closet. Keeps things organized and easy to find (see thru cubes).
We also have a couple collapsible canvas containers with divided pockets in the overhead front storage. Easy to reach in and grab the whole thing out to get what you need versus clambering around in that bottomless pit of a storage hole.

Good ideas. Easier and probably better than something I could make.

Jkaras7, if you don't mind, which brand mattress topper did you go with? We have a 24L as well and sleeping on the mattress is akin to sleeping on a concrete slab. Thanks.

We purchased the LUCID 3-inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress Topper - Queen on Amazon. Had to trim it a bit as it is a bit longer than the short Queen mattress in the Melbourne. BTW, agree with you that it is like sleeping on a concrete slab. It made a world of difference.

Just saw a 14" thick gel foam mattress at Costco. If it can be shortened.... has anyone tested to see if it folds enough when we bring the slide in? Current mattress is "split" and folds as the slide comes in.
