A new addition to the RV Furniture line up in the showroom at Dave LJs is the Flexsteel Fold N Tumble Airbed. With this new sofa you can get a queen size sleeping area, that folds out in  a smaller space than traditional hide a bed sleepers. Available in two lengths at 68" and 73"  both of which offer a queen size mattress. This sofa folds out to 76" away from the wall, much less than a hide a bed at 87". It has a drawer option and can be installed on both flat and raised floor slides.  The photos below show how it works, the mattress, which has a built in pump  stows with straps behind the seat back and inflates in less than two minutes.

Lack of counter space in the kitchen is a common complaint, even in the larger motorhomes. Slide out counters are a nice solution to add counter space without losing any storage space. This coach we are featuring also received new flooring with luxury vinyl tiles clear back to bedroom along with new carpeting in the remaining areas.

This coach had a tile floor installed on most of the main floor, but the manufacturer left some carpet in front of the slide out as well as around the driver and passenger seats. It also had carpet in the bedroom and half of the rear bathroom. 

The customer wanted to have tile installed on all of  the main floor. The removable hatch in the rear bathroom was a challenge! We decided to use a matching plastic T molding to finish the transition between the hatch and the main floor.  We used an offset pattern with a mosaic accent which came out very rich looking!

With the number of flat screen conversions we do, we saw the need to also offer High Definition Satellite dish installations as well. 

We chose RF Mogul Satellite systems for a number of reasons.  The RF Mogul system is lighter and quieter than all of its competitors. It can be mounted on a curved or flat roof surface. The system uses a virtual GPS for acquisition and skew alignment. The black color stands out less on the newer fully painted coaches, and most importantly they are field serviceable and do not require the shipment back to the factory. They are very simple to operate with only power, search and stow buttons for full operation. The dishes are compatible with direct tv, dish network as well as  shaw for our customers from the north!

One of our more popular requests seems to be adding ceiling fans to the bedrooms of our customers RV's. This customer  wanted the ceiling fan added and also was looking for an upgrade to the fluorescent lighting down the center of the coach. Another thing on their wish list was an upgrade to the mirrored closet doors in the bedroom.

We came up with a design for the lighting with custom build maple panels and two spot lights in each. We also replaced the plastic air inlet shrouds with custom built wood replacements.

This customer like many toter owners tows a race car behind this coach. It is mostly used to hang out at the tracks during slack time at the races. Big TVs, new flooring and furniture were the items they came in looking for.
The front cab over was just open to the living room area, so this space was more than big enough to accept a fairly large TV. We installed a 55" 3D LCD TV and a sliding pocket door to close off the bunk area. The old TV space was moved out towards the wall with a new bank of cabinets to fill the hole.

On the floor we installed a congoleum wood plank pattern vinyl.  On the passenger side we installed a Flexsteel Easy Bed, and the slide out recieved a Flexsteel Easy Bed with the wrap around style dinette set all in Ultra Leather.

The opening to the front cab area came from the factory with a pleated fabric curtain to pull across to close off the cab area from the living rooom. We installed custom built solid oak sliding doors toa better job of seperating the two and a much richer look.

In the stairwell we did a combination of heavy duty rubber step treads and the vinyl planks, and in the bedroom we installed a 37" LCD tv.



For those of you wintering down south, come see us at the Rally in Phoenix March 22-25.

This coach had dated wrap around window box's that fully surrouned the old day night shades. The customer wanted to have us install the Auto Motion roller shades but did not have the necessary clearance for the new shades. We completely rebuilt the window treatments in a more contemporary style with a nice accent panel where the center light was installed. They are covered in a easy to care for marine vinyl in black, which really sets off the lighter colored shades!

Like many customers, this one was looking to eliminate as much carpet as possible. The Alpha coach had carpet in the living room, main slide out and bedroom with tile in the kitchen and bath. They also had a small tile landing area at the top of the steps.
The factory tile was in good shape, so we left it in place in the kitchen and bath. We removed the landing area so the new laminate flooring would flow all the way to the front. The main slide is a flat floor slide with a bound edge of carpet to lay on the main floor once the slide is out. In order to have laminate on the slide out we remove the carpet, then install a subfloor over the original slide floor. We extend this new subfloor out to where the old carpet flap was. The laminate is installed and finished off with a matching stairnose trim. The end result is the slide floor is now about 3/4 of an inch higher than before. We also installed the laminate in the bedroom and a small amount of new carpeting on the bedroom slide and step sides.

In this coach we did a fairly extensive remodel. On the floor we installed luxury vinyl tiles on most of the main floor and carpet in the cab area, slide outs and bedroom. We installed a lighter color, installed on a diamond pattern with a darker grey grouting to make it stand out. We build several custom cabinetry pieces. We replaced the standard dinette set with a wall cabinet with slide out center dining table. Just inside the entry door, we removed a recliner and replaced it with a desk unit that can be used with the passenger seat swiveled around.
A new Flexsteel hideabed with the aircoil mattress and new captains chairs were installed in a nice upgraded fabric called Kashmira. The front curtain was replaced with the auto motion shade cockpit system. Power front day night roller shades and manual side shades, along with new valance work. Two new TV's and a cieling fan in the bedroom were the finishing touches!

We met the folks with this coach at the good sam rally in Redmond Or. this past summer. They had traveled all the way from Alabama to spend the summer in the northwest and attend the rally. They were looking to reconfigure their coach with a much larger TV and a comfortable place to watch it from. The drivers slide out had a wall cabinet with free standing dinette chairs, along with a hideabed sofa. The Passenger slide had a matching love seat along with the kitchen. We designed a custom built cabinet for the drivers slide out which added a lot of storage and most imortantly the 46" flat screen on a power lift. In the dining area we retained the original table and installed a set of Flexsteel wrap around dinette benches. Across from the new TV we installed the Flexsteel Theatre Seating with center console. The two recliners are power operated.
The front area which used to house the old TV was finished off with a new cabinet door with storage behind.
