Most of the photos will take you to a tutorial. I have marked a few of them as product links, because I really like the product and you should have one too!

My husband, our two dogs and I have spent more than two months at a time in this tiny camper. All the mods shown here are workable and have vastly improved our experience. Let me know if any are helpful to you!

It is    30" L x 20" W  and adjustable from 21"- 28" high. 
It folds flat and stores in the shower when we're not using it.

I have a 17' travel trailer. I love so many of your ideas! The spouse is going to be busy after work today!
Love the towel loops. Did you make that yourself and sew on?
Were you nervous to drill in hooks in the bathroom? Been enoucraged not to do that. We're newbies as of this year.
We camp with three dogs so love all the dog mods.
Emergency window extension is great and shower Head!
Love the found storage!
Our table is huge. We can barely sit at it when it's installed, so checking out your table ideas. Thanks so much!

Wait til you see the post about the new table I just built. It is a 'knock-down' table, that stores away in practically no space at all but is large enough to eat or play games! I'll try to get that posted this weekend. Thanks for visiting and all your wonderful comments!

I did sew the loops on myself, very easy. I have patterned loops and Hubby has blue stripe, so we can tell the towels apart quickly. Also buttonholes in the washcloths so they stay on the hooks. When I took the table out, I saw that the 110 wiring ran only across under the bed, so I knew it was not in the walls. I avoid areas around the exterior lights (usually) and I haven't had any problems with screws in the walls. When I took the bench out there were amazingly long screws they had put in holding it to the walls, so I felt better LOL. . . also most of the screws I use in the walls, hooks, etc are about 1/2" long, so not much damage. (screws from old cabinet hinges are great!) Our camper is getting older and i don't worry about reselling it, I want to fix it up for ME :) and now I LOVE IT!

I'm looking at rv's, trailers, class c's; trying to decide how small I can go for FT living. I just found your blog and am so inspired. Don't know that I have your carpentry skills, but I can follow directions pretty well. I am now excited that I can go smaller and still have comfort and storage!!! Your mind is a treasure. I just subscribed so I can keep up. You are appreciated!!!!!

I just bought this - it's 2x as effective, super quiet, lightweight. It's doing a great job! It has made a noticeable difference in the comfort level of our rv.
