Motorhome Model Hints and Tips >> Murvi Motorhomes
Bits of your Murvi you've thought about/have tinkered with..
No, this post is not aimed at people who have re-wired the gas or some such dangerous thing. It is aimed at those people who have found neat solutions in their Murvi...
I'll start the ball rolling with a couple of things I've been thinking about; I've not discussed either with Rex or Andy, so there maybe a neat solution in their records.
In the wardrobe I'd like to install a couple of drawers, one under each shelf. Now this could be a built in draw set, or under slung trays on draw runners. Not quite sure how I would mount them... We find the shelves too deep in the wardrobe, yes we could use a collection of boxes to separate the clothes, but we though drawers on those long extension runners would be ideal. Then you could pull them out and look down on the clothes rather than bending down and peering in.
The other cupboard we'd like to know what people have done is the one at the end of the worktop, opposite the corner seat. At the moment it has a pull down front and things get stuffed inside, torches, bags, level, etc. It's all a bit messy. Again we thought a draw would be ideal here, same front. Of course because the front is angled it could end up being a little small.
Anyhow, any one else looked at a cubby hole, cupboard or shelf and thought up/implemented a solution for their Murvi Morello or otherwise?
Ideas on a post card please...
The only modification we've made - wait for it - is to drill the wardrobe shelves & replace the screws which held them on the supports with tiny bolts & wingnuts, so we can get the shelves out easily to access the panel behind if necessary. We don't use the aerial socket so the top shelf is quite high up (just below jacket length), & we have a couple of flat storage boxes, one behind the other, under the 3rd shelf down, so quite decent heights (though not equal, because of the fuse panel) above the 2nd & 3rd shelf.
We've put a clip-together cutlery tray thing, bought originally for our previous van from Lakeland, into the cupboard at the front end of the worktop (we have an '07/'08 design - were the cupboards different in the slightly shorter van?) & rearranged the compartments to sort of fit into the space & hold things from cooking implements to spare batteries to rolls of polythene bags. It's not stable enough to pull out, so we have to grope for things, but it does organise a host of small items.
Due to a delivery delay prior to conversion we only collected the Morello just under a week before we went to France last year, & panicked about how everything would fit into the odd-shaped cupboards (we had a Nuevo before), but we found we had room to spare & actually prefer the miscellaneous cubbyholes now!
The only cupboard we'd like some ideas about is the top one by the sliding door. At the moment we use it to store all our chargers, leads, camera & GPS usb connectors, dongles, headphones, etc etc, in Tesco value storage containers which don't sit properly & have to be all taken out to find the thing we need which is inevitably at the bottom - but we can't see how to fix some miniature compartments vertically into the space!!!

Glad it's not just me, then!
