Aspen Trail 1900RB Cabinet by Door

So have been looking at the top of cabinet by the back door. Has anyone found a use for the top of this. There is 110 power in the all. No TV connections.

Where is the TV now? That is where it goes on my Coleman. Do you have an antenna? Other than the lack of a mounting plate (find a stud) it wouldn't be hard to put one there, might take some creative fishing to get a coax back there from the antenna if you already have one, but it isn't too hard. There is a bit of "attic" space in the roof trusses.

My TV is on the Kitchen side of the unit by where the antenna connection and 12 volt power is.

You could put a mirror up there with LED lighting... make the trailer "appear" larger, or paint a mural. Kind of odd that they didn't utilize the space. Maybe a fish tank?

We put our Keurig and a 2.5 gallon jug of water with spigot up there when we are stopped. They both nestle into the empty kitchen sink while on the move.

I removed the top of the cabinet, put an additional 6 3/4 inch height so that it cleared the outlet and put supports in the rear corner (3/4 x 3/4) and placed the top back on. Raised the bar inside the closet so that you could hang stuff in there an not have them fold over on the bottom. I posted a finshed picture in modifications a few weeks ago, but if you are interested I can post them here for you.

Same issue for me, so I took top off and built shelves so we have an area to hang longer items and also an area for shorter items. The photo shows closet during construction before doors installed. I then made two matching doors and installed them. I don't seem to be able to post the second photo with doors on as the site seems to be limiting it.

Cabinet doors

Here are the doors, seems I can only attach one photo per post. (The panel under the closet is not in place in the photo as I had just winterized the trailer). I also built drawers under the bed for quick access to items.
