A couple more tweaks

I was going to make an awning protector, decided to buy one..A lot easier..LOL

I put carpeting on the platform for the bed, easier on the mattress...

Made a doggy compartment under bed, saves room, instead of a dog crate on the floor...

Pretty good ideas! Did you secure the carpet to the plywood on the bed base?

Faucets

Just getting lazy, I decided tp install single lever faucets on the Kitchen sink and the Bathroom sink, I was spoiled using them in the house... They hooked right up with no modifications necessary and work fine...

The dog kennel idea is great. We covered our plywood also. I didn't like the idea of wood against the mattress

Covered Plywood

I am also covering the plywood under the Dinette Cushions...I had one side of the cushions redone with Vinyl..Which I will use on the top, this will make it easier to slide in and out....Also raised the table top about 2 inches for a little more room...
I think I have to much time on my hands...LOL
