Easy Modifications for Your Camper
Lucky for me I’ve got a pretty handy hubby, so he’s been able to make some small modifications to out travel trailer to make life a little easier. We have a spilt bathroom (I guess that’s what they call it) where the tub and potty are on one side of the camper and the mirror and sink are on the other. The only drawback is, there’s no place to put extra toilet paper, washcloths, clothes, etc.
So Hubby took a shelf that sits over the toilet in a stick house and modified it to fit over the toilet in the trailer. The poles that hold the shelf are spring loaded, so this was an easy install. He also installed one of these soap dispensers in the shower. Now we don’t have shampoo and soap bottles bouncing around in the tub when we go down the road.
This isn’t really a modification, just a nifty way to use the space under the dinette seat. Hubby measured the space and then found an under the bed tote to fit. This way I can store all my pots and pans under there, all I have to do is slide out the tote. We also have one in the front of the camper in the storage part, that way things don’t get lost/stuck in the middle.
Hubby also made a step for the outside out of a grill from an old gas grill someone was throwing out. He simply built a box out of a 2×4 and attached the grate from the grill to the top. This way when you step on this before you step into the camper, a lot of the dirt and stones that are on the bottom of you shoes gets knocked off, which keeps the inside of the camper cleaner (bonus points to Hubby)
I love to hear/see how other campers have made modifications to help then enjoy their camping experience. I hate to make generalizations, but it seems like there’s a lot of campers out there who are pretty clever when it comes to making their camper their own. Thankfully they also seem to be happy to share these modifications with others. So what’s been your favorite modification you’ve done?
