New to the forums. TT is a 2017 Keystone Bullet 287QBS. Got is last September. Lots of mods already. Here is the list.

Being an Ultra Lite, the day I took it out of the dealer and brought it home for the kids to "visit" the bunkhouse, one of the bunk ended-up like this.
[image]
[image]
[image]

I used birch plywood that I stained and heavy duty hinges to reinforce the bunk. Now I can sleep in it.
[image]
[image]

Next was to install MaxAir II as well as 200W of solar panels as we often dry camp. I used Eternabond tape for the solar panels. Wires go in through fridge exhaust, routed under the belly to the pass through storage.

Charge controller
[image]

Remote inside
[image]

Then a few USB ports to charge our devices, fed from 12V.
[image]
[image]
[image]

A few LED in dark cabinets
[image]
[image]

High quality mattress with memory foam
[image]

Tongue jack
[image]

Fans for the fridge with a switch accessible from the outside
[image]
[image]

LEDs everywhere (not shown but I also did the fridge and the range hood)
[image]
[image]
[image]

Painted the drums, they were rusty
[image]

There is no fender or protection above the wheels, only the thin plastic sheet. I sprayed rubber.
[image]

Multiple hooks
[image]
[image]
[image]

Shelves in several cabinets (not all shown) all made of birch plywood.
Washroom cabinet shelf and paper holder
[image]

Wife wanted to keep the hanger but I added a shelf above
[image]

I got rid of it and installed 2 shelves on my side
[image]

Recent addition is a pair of leveler. I used 2x8 that I ran through my planner and laminated together.
Varnish

Rubber spay for the bottom

The finished product (cat not included)

Next on the list
- Wheel chocks (under construction)
- 30A mouse entry
- Tongue box to house my battery(ies) and tools
- Gas strut so my wife can access the under-bed storage
- Counter extension
- More LEDs in dark cabinets
- Access door to the hot water heater from inside
- Slide topper

WeAreFive ~ We bought a Keystone Bullet a couple years ago and have made many of the mods you have: 4 sets of hooks here and there, many battery-powered LED lights, shelves in closets, including the small ones beside the beds, slide topper, Fantastic Fans, memory foam mattress pad … DH also built 6 drawers where deep, inaccessible cupboards were, modified the bench seat by the door into part shoe shelf, added remote to bathroom fan which otherwise had to be turned on manually by stepping into the shower (not convenient when you discover you’re making a stink) … I don’t think I’ll be requesting a “mouse entry” however! LOL

Love this thread sooo many great mods. Just went through 11 years....where did time go. LOL

Have done many mods. My favorite and most useful is the fridge mods. Now it stays chilly even in the high 90's.

Two temperature controlled 92mm ultra quiet fans outside in the vents. 1 pulling air in and the other pulling air out the top.

And another fan inside the fridge circulating the air. 80mm noctua fan that oh...I also soldered a led onto it. [emoticon]

All 3 are control by lighted rocker switch on the front of the fridge.


Bottom Fan

Top Fan

[image]


Inside fan with LED

[image]


And lastly the Switch. The LED is bright so there is a small piece of electrical tape over most of it....just enough to see when on.
