Projects to Improve a Travel Trailer
« on: January 13, 2019, 05:52 PM »
Just bought a new 2018 trailer RV.  It's relatively small (25' from tip of hitch to back bumper), fiberglass w/azdel backing construction.


Question - What improvements would you make to a travel trailer that would involve using your Festool tools?  This could include improving (without totally rebuilding) interior features, woodworking projects to accessorize the trailer, small add-ons, space-savers, etc. etc.  At this point I'm just looking for as many ideas as possible - I'm sure there will be some ones that I'll want to use in the bunch.

It all depends on what you are going to do with the camper.  I have a 40’, but I’ve only pulled it once for a total of 20 miles (from a seasonal site on the East side of a lake to a different seasonal spot on the North side of the same lake).  I have rebuilt the support structure under the “master” bed, built two different decks, and will be putting in a wood floor in the kitchen/living area this summer.  It’s a trade off, storage solutions are always good, but if you are pulling it, weight can be a consideration which can rule out most wood products in favor of lighter materials.

to me not much to actually improve the trailer, but you can build a knock down table to set up outside under a awning, mabe build a organizer to store the things you would need to store the plates etc that you would use to bbq with, maybe even make something to store those things so you would just have to wheel it out and set it up.
Im just guessing really. But those are somethings I would consider if/when I buy a TT

There is so much wasted space in travel trailers.
Spend a few weekends in it as it was delivered.
Depending on the layout, you may want to add shelves in your pantry, or LED strip lighting.
My pantry has 3 shelves in it, first is 36" off the floor, then spaced 20-24". I end up with lots of open wasted space. LED strip lighting is nice to see what is in the pantry due to no factory supplied lights.
