Title: Our 2910 Single slide
Post by: gradygal on June 30, 2012, 11:45:08 am
Here are some photos of our 2910, single slide with twin beds>

We had the factory add a mirror behind the sink and adjacent to the stove to prevent  spatters on the wood. We had them fashion the drop-down shelf out of the solid surface material. We removed the cutting board and installed a slide out untensil holder.

The beds are longer than the 2551. Storage under the passenger side bed is accessible from the outside or lifting the bed from the inside. It also has a cabinet door on the inside. Now we have storage for our zero gravity chairs, the grill, shop vac, outdoor tables and more. Under the driver's side bed, the cabinet door gives storage for two laundry baskets. Kermit knew we were concerned about storage so he maximized storage areas as much as possible.

Between the two beds there is a nightstand.

Gradygal,
   Very nice layout and the color selection enhances the interior.  It appears an almost blue-gray in the photos.  Congratulations.

We had that silver sun protecter in the front windshield so the color may have been a little distorted. The leather is a soft gray.

Oh So Nice there Gradygal!   ;)  I love what you had PC-USA do for you.  Are they going to offer that as a new model for 2013?

I have to get off my butt and get to buying that wire basket tray to replace our cutting board.  Where did you buy that one from?  I know I asked this question before.  Sorry.

I love your mirrors.  I really love them.  The factory was (maybe still is) installing mirrors next to the stove in the most common galley, but many people were not happy with it.  I never understood that.  I always thought a mirror there would be great for cooking splashing and twice the light from the hood.  Our 2007 2350 lacks that mirror but my wife didn't want to invest the money in one.   :'(   Ditto for leather seating for our cloth dinette.   :'(  Our cloth is okay, but leather would have been "tops".

I have to ask this question.
For those of us who require sleeping together, do you think there is enough room to work with in placing a double or queen  bed positioned sideways with night stands?  Even skinny nightstands, say 9" each, just enough to provide a place for personal things, and enough floor space to stand up at both sides.  Making up the bed would be so easy and like-home when you can drape the bedding properly on both sides.

Yes the one person would have to climb over the other to get out, but I would think it would be so much easier than our 2350 with cubby-hole double bed.  Not asking for myself becasue it just ain't gonna fit in our garage.  But I think there would be general interest in such a deviation.  Such a bed might even offer a pass-thru outdoor storage arraingement, even if the fresh water tank takes up some if it.

Is the fresh water tank or other mechanicals under your other bed?  What's under there?

Ron,
I don't think that this is a new model for 2013. They discontinued the 2950. We initially wanted the rear like the 2551/2552 with the head in the back and the wardrobe but Kermit said that it could not be built the way we wanted so this really is a compromise. I really wanted the wardrobe but it was not to be.

The slide out basket came from Bed Bath and Beyond,

I really didn't like the mirrors in the 2350 or the 2551 but they serve a purpose. In the 2910, there is wood paneling right behind the sink. Splashing water on the paneling is inevitible and then the wood would be messed up. So, we asked for the mirrors. One of the best things we did!!!

Don't know about configuring the back for a queen with nightstands. We really like the twins.

George and Judi,

      LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT.  We think everything you did came out really nice.  It looks like you have all kinds of storage.  We like all the cabinets in the bedroom area, including the night stand.  Great IDEA!

Barry and Sue


PS - Can we sign up for our personal tour now?  We'll be at WP Franklin 12/29 til 1/10!!!!

I went to BB&B and picked up the 3 compartment tray you have.  They also offered the same size tray with more compartments, but the 3 compartment seems to be more useful.  Now I have one more thing to do.

Thanks again gradygal!

That is where I keep my mixing spoons, spatulas, aluminum foil and most importantly my corkscrew! (cheer) (cheer)

Judi,
I also like the pull out draw instead of the cutting board.  For us, it would definitely be more functional.  We will pick one up when at Bed Bath and Beyond. 
Thanks for the great idea!

Yep.  The place today without that new drawer, those large utensils are under the main fork-n-spoon drawer where it's a struggle to get them out every time.

Congrats on the new rig.  Love it!  And love the twin beds in back with storage underneath.   Great job.

I replaced the cutting board with a drawer also and find the cutting board fits in the  sink opening where items being cut or chopped will just fall into the sink.  Much easier to clean up especially if liquid is involved.

We just finished a couple of other mods to the 2910:

1. We ordered the table for in front of the sofa. The table is not standard on the 2910. They figure that you eat off of the small table between the two Euro chairs which, for us, is not a solution. There was no place to store the table, legs and spider feet so we built a mount out of aluminum storm panel header and foam to protect the edge of the table. It is secured to the wall behind the Euro chair.

2. George built a shelf in the rear of the coach to hold "stuff"--propane, torches, polishes etc.

3. We also had the front windows tinted. That Florida sun is a killer! It also bothered him when driving.

Good Job / Nice ideas.... keep em coming.

Very nice for organizing lots of the little things.

I found the rear storage compartment ideal for this nice 2-person folding table  It's great to have as a primary table under the awning, or as a secondary table if you are able to move a campsite picnic table under the awning.  Either way, this table is great.  We like to place it next to the outside outlet, a nice place for the coffee pot, crock pot, radio, etc.

It has 3-position adjustable legs, this picture shows the low setting.
- Low is ideal for using with camping chairs
- Mid makes a nice extention of a picnic table
- Tall is nice for standing next to, also nice to keep kids and dogs away from things you don't want them to get at.

Here is the tall setting.

We bought ours 4 years ago at a Costco but not sure if they still sell the same model with adjustable legs.  I have recently seen a non-adjustable leg model at Walmart.

George, how did you secure the shelf?  Is there solid wood thru there?
Title: Re: Our 2910 Single slide

Billy:

I added a 1x1 under the top shelf. I use anchors in the wall to hold the 1x1. I've used this same shelf in the 2 prevous PC's without the 1x1.

Ron:

I have another storage area under the slide for my cables and hoses. I've added a shelf to keep them separate.
