bedside wardrobe mod
In our new to us cougar fifth wheel, the bedside wardrobes come all the way down to the floor which means there is no place to put your phone or a book or a glass of water beside you. We are planning on putting nightlights with USB for plugging in our phones at night but are thinking of a mod for the books, reading glasses etc. Phil is thinking of cutting into the wardrobe and inserting maybe an open shelf/compartment, and then putting a trim around the cut edge. wondering if anyone has tried something similar (and results or suggestions) or what have others come up with to make a space for storage beside the bed?
We had a trailer that did have an opening at the bottom of the bedside wardrobe. When it was cold outside we had a water fall effect, the warm air would rise and push down the cold air. We had to stuff a pillow in there to stop the chill. I later made a sliding panel from some door glides to keep the cold air in the closet.
Our trailer has a shelf that runs along the closet wall just high enough that our heads don't hit it while sleeping. The shelf is just wide enough for a water bottle, phone, etc..
Thanks Bob and Pam....good information! Never would have thought of the cold air thing!
