I love the two chairs and fold-down table that you have in your 2551.  We have the small slide-out with a horribly uncomfortable sofa.  Hmm, now I'm wondering if this might be an option for us to change to the chairs.  Probably not because of the slideout on theat side. 
Also, wanted to mentioned that when we went to pick up our motorhome at the factory, the little computer table was way too low to get legs under from the swivel chair.  The carpenter fixed it overnight for us so it is more useful.  I don't think it would take too much effort to raise that table.  Just a thought.  Also, love your idea about replacing the useless (to me) cutting board.  Great ideas.

Bob, thank you so much for your information.  Lots of good advice and it is appreciated.  We have the little 2350 Sprinter and I keep attempting to stretch it out to a larger motorhome.  Some of your ideas will definitely help.  We are in San Jose, CA but have visited Idaho a few times now as one of my best friends lives in Idaho Falls.   

I believe you are the person who showed pictures of the clothes hangers that are being used as towel bars in the shower.  If so, thanks for that idea as well.  My husband installed those this week.  I'm sure they will be a huge improvement over my suction hooks that kept falling down.

Hello there.  Viewed your improvements and managed to get a lot of good ideas.  I noticed that you have a clock mounted in your slideout.  I bought one almost identical to it yesterday and am trying to figure out the best way to mount it.  Did you put a screw into the side of the slideout or did you stick it on there with something?  Thanks for your help.

Hi there.  My husband is 5'8" and has trouble getting really hot dishes out of the oven due to its height.  I'm 5'2" and really struggle with it and cuss it out on every trip.  It works beautifully but is just too darn high for us.

Thank you.  I found them and am interested in knowing where you were able to find that folding towel bar for the shower?  I have been attempting to use suction hooks for towels in the shower and am not being very successful.  Would love to find some of these.

I'm being a dufous here but I can't see the pictures.  How do I get to them?

Just wanted to let everyone know what happened to us on our recent trip.  We have a 2010 2350 Sprinter with the dual tire inflators.  We heard a noise which my husband thought was gravel.  I thought it sounded more like the tanks were falling off.  We were on a back road but a good paved road looking for our campsite and traveling about 45 mph.  A car behind us beeped at us and we pulled over.  He said that our hubcap had fallen off into the ditch.  We stopped to check out the tires.  We found that the inner dual tire had no valve stem in it.  The valve stem was pulled totally out of the rim and the tire was totally without any air pressure.  The outside dual tire was about three-fourths full but was leaking fast.  The braided steel extender had broken off near the rim and was leaking air.  My husband immediately removed the broken extender from the valve to stop the leak.  This left us with about one-half of the tire pressure in the outside dual.  Fortunately for us, we were about a half mile from the interstate highway where there was an all night service center for trucks.  They changed out our inner dual with our spare tire and inflated our outside dual.  The next day, we went to a tire center and replaced the valve stems in both tires, removed the braided extenders from the other dual tires and had them install smaller extenders that do not need to be bolted to the hubcaps.  When the hubcap fell off, it also did damage to the fender well of the coach that will need about $800 of body work.  We were very fortunate that this happened where it did so we could get help and go on with our trip.  My husband is very thorough about checking the coach before and during our trips.  We are thinking that the vibrations just loosened things up.  I'm not sure if there is a better solution to avoiding this problem in the future.

Hi there.  Just wondering if you got the material for the bathroom counter extension from Phoenix Cruiser or where???  That added little space is priceless and I want it!!  My husband is very handy but we need to get the materials.  Did the factory also make the little extra cabinet in the bathroom for you or was that added later and again, where did you get the material.  You have come up with some really good ideas.  Thank you.

Thank you so much for these ideas.  I will get busy and do some researching to see if I can buy some of these things locally or will order on line.  I really appreciate your response.  We have the small slideout and electric sofa so there isn't much storage on that side of the coach.

I just wanted to say thank you for all of your ideas on how you use the 2350's bathroom and storage ideas for the pots and pans.  Ron, your idea for a retractable line for the towels sounds like a winner also.  I really appreciate your replies.  Loved the stacking pots and pans from West Marine.

Hi Judi,

To answer your question about the pots and pans.  I don't have a good answer.  I had only one small pot and small frying pan which I put in one of the kitchen drawers.  They just won't fit in the small cabinets over the sofa in the slide-out. We took a three-week trip in our 2350 after picking it up from the factory on 10/30.  I used the shower only once during that time and decided that I would be better off using the showers at the campgrounds which is something that I don't like doing at all.  Consequently, I'm trying to figure out how to manage in the 2350.  In hindsight, after seeing Ron's pictures of his 2350 without the slide-out, I'm so sorry that I didn't realize how much more space there was in it before ordering ours.  I was a bit concerned about mounting a toilet tissue holder to that outside wall of the bathroom.  Please let me know how you do it and if it works without damaging the structure.  I did see a suction type small towel holder at the Container Store that I may get for over the toilet but it is 15" and I believe we have only 13" available to use.  Still looking for answers to some of these questions.  For the most part, we loved the Sprinter but really could use a bit more storage space and a bit larger bathroom.

Hello.  We have a very nice 2010 2350 Sprinter.  I'm attempting to figure out the best way to get the most out of it.  As you know, the bathroom is very small.  How in the world do you folks shower in it?  Do you sit on one of those little plastic stools in the corner or?  Also, anyone found a good place to position a toilet paper holder and towel racks?  I'm not a huge person at all of 5' 2" but found it really confining.  I was thinking that perhaps the best way to dry towels would be on suction type hooks but wanted to ask what most of you are doing.

I'm sorry everyone.  Guess I don't know what I'm doing here.  I attempted to attach three pictures for you but only one came through.  Please just send me your e-mail and I will forward some to you that show the cabinet open and closed.

Sorry, I got too anxious to send the note and didn't send the pictures.  Here they are:
