    Yes Marilyn they do crank out.One of these days need to clean and lubricate window mechanisms as they are stiff to turn.
    I used pvc trim on interior.Light weight,cheap ,easy to cut and no painting if you leave it white.About the only things left is hanging some blinds and buying a couple of mattresses.Thanks to all the compliments and encouragement.Oh,planning to bring it to the fall event!

    Time to trim out the windows.Have some of the original trim but not for all windows.Decided to use metal right angle for suspended ceiling border.Alot cheaper than buying aluminum angle.Used some 1 1/2 inch pvc lattice
    around the outside.Looks pretty good but it is time consuming (lotsa measuring and cutting).

    Thanks for the compliments Marilyn and Mark and others.Some people have detailed CAD drawings and spread sheets but I just winged it.Built a teardrop a few years ago and definately overthought it! So
    tried not to over think this project.Sold teardrop a couple of years ago just too small for us now. Click image for larger version

    Found this induction surface unit with 2 burners.Can be used on countertop or cutout and flush with countertop.Haven't decided which yet.Usually cook outside so if sitting on counter would be easier to use outside.
    Haven't cooked on it yet but it'll boil a pot of water lickity split! Click image for larger version

    Added a shelf above the counter.Installed 3 small lights underneath and outlet on top for a toaster oven maybe.Not planning to put anything heavy on it but seemed a little saggy so used some shower rod holders from ceiling to shelf. Click image for larger version

    Not sure if a recessed sink would be too low with the counter height so used this vessel style sink with a waterfall faucet. Click image for larger version

    Didn't have any room above counter {due to windows}.Found these pop up outlets that raise and retract.Put one on each side of the sink. Click image for larger version

    Back to the drawing board!While working in the trailer with air conditioner on for an extended time I found the exhaust blower was not moving enough air to vent the heat out causing the compressor to shut off.Installed a different blower to move more air.Definitely moving more air.Hope this does the trick.

    Thanks. It was pretty easy to do. The components were bought seperate but I think you can buy a kit.

    Following photos show linear actuator to adjust the bed angle allowing comfortable reading or relaxing position.Control switches are up/down and center switch to turn on a reading light overhead.The control circuitry is tucked away under wheel well cover

    Thanks.When AC is set on economy the AC blower turns off also and the current relay drops out the exhaust fan on shroud.No sense in it running continuous.
