This looks to be somewhat extensive. You obviously know what's going on.

Hey right on! I guess you figured out how you are going to re-arrange things? Is your plumbing going to work out how you wanted ?

Yes that is my Grandson, Nick. He's a lot of fun. I hope he has as much energy when he is old enough to use it effectively!!! The layout will be similar to The coach in Album 6 in 1993 coaches of the Newell Showcase. I'm planning on taking Keith's advice and move the fridge to the curb-side. Ahead of the fridge will be the kitchen/sink food-prep area as in Album 6 coach. the shower will be just behind fridge then a linen closet just aft of shower ahead of bedroom. The mid-located bunks will stay on driver side. The toilet will be just aft of the bunks with the lavatory just aft of the toilet. The plumbing will be a challenge but I'm fairly certain I have it figured out. I am trying to learn what I can about Laminate (Formica or Wilsonite) I would like to find some realistic wood-grain patterns but have not found what I like yet. I also have to learn how to apply it!!!

Just wanted to touch on choice of high presuure laminates. Working with these products there is many choices. In my mind formica and arbourite are at the bottom of the scale of laminates. Moving upward my next choice would be wilsonart then two others I can not think of at this moment, then the best out there in my mind is Nevamar. Clearly the best. My choice in contact is Latex. Most of the time it comes in a green can and says covers 3 1/2 times more than other brands. It acctually does. It costs about $80.00 per gallon so most people shy away from it because other brands are only $30.00. If you have not purchased laminate before it comes in 4x8 and 5x12 sheets. Cuts easily on a table saw to get to approx size. Once glued into position my choice is a flush cut router bit with a roller bearing to keep it just slightly away from contact from other laminate ect. Finish edge with a fine bastard file then a wood block with 120 garnet paper.

I had no clue that there was that big of a difference in quality. I went with WilsonArt, mainly because they had a large assortment of samples at Home Depot and I was able find a sample that matched what I already have installed. I was able to check with natural, incandescent and fluorescent light to make sure it was a good match. Nevamar has a great selection online, but I'm not real confident that my computer monitor is color accurate.
