Cloths Chute for 2350.
« on: July 05, 2012, 09:15:09 pm »
Barb and I have owned our 2012 2350 for about a month now and enjoying using it and also furnishing it.  We have enjoyed the many hints and tips found on this forum, implement some of them... Now maybe it is time to give-back with idea's we have.

Daughter and family bought a 24' camper two weeks ago that had a cloths chute.  I thought, what a great idea to have a place for the dirty cloths to get them out of the living area of the camper.  But our 2350 had none. 

Looking around inside the 2350 for extra area's (We came from 7 years in a Winn Rialta, and know the joys of finding new cubby holes to store stuff!), I see room under the bed.  This is room there that could be used if a little re-arranging of a head duct and CO2 unit.  Moving both of them to the left opens up a 12x12 space enough to tack in a laundry bag of your choice and have a clothes chute.  Add a nice door and your set.

Also, there is room on both the left and right side of the water tank for long narrow items such as kayak paddles and I even shoved in the life jackets.   

Oh... fixing some hinges on the bed board allows one easy access to all the stuff stored under there like the paddles, jackets and electrical equipment, *(especially if one need to service them).

Below is some pictures... not good quality as my camera broke and at the mercy of the cell ph.

enjoy

In our new 2910, We (actually George) reworked the area under the driver's side bed and now we can fit 2 laundry baskets in there for the dirty clothes.

We are finding that we have to be creative with the space that we have in this one. So far, so good but I know that I am going to miss the wardrobe. We will be leaving FL in a few weeks, for about 6 weeks so we will really be able to tell then.

I find it kind of fun exploring new cubbies that can be used for something.  When space is precious, every square foot (maybe even sq inch) is like a glass of water in the desert!  :) 

Today mounted a 84 watt solar panel on the roof.  Want to have about 300 watts up there eventually.  Ran two #6 wires up thru the black tank vent so as not to put any more holes up there than necessary. The charge controller (40 amp)  can be seen in one of the pictures mounted right rear of bed.
