Hi all, somewhat new here. After YEARS of tenting, we bought a used Dutchmen last month. We love it. It's perfect for us, but we can also tell it could be a gateway drug to a camper someday. lol This thing was seriously clean when we got it. Very well taken care of in the past and the previous owners were absolutely awesome. Yet, as a car guy, I had to modify it right away (with wife's permission and even some urging). The fridge, water pump and heater haven't worked in years, so we debated replacing vs removing. The thought having to walk in and over to the fridge, then get low to get something out of it seemed more of a pain in the butt, so I pulled that and we replaced it with a dorm fridge that currently sits The heater unit came out with it with the thought of using a portable if we ever need it. I know there's a long time pup owner debate about sinks, but we went with removing it, as we have an outdoor kitchen with a sink we use. That led to removing the flip top and replacing it with a standard shelf, then removing the cabinet for the additional floor space. (With 2 large labs, floor space is a premium ha) My wife spent some time painting cabinets and doing a "faux marble" look to the counter tops. I replaced the hardware with new hinges. Next up, laying down some peel and stick flooring and calling the interior done! Not much to do to the exterior. Since there is no heater or water hookups, those hatches aren't needed. Luckily I have a 3d printer, so I designed some block offs and installed those in place. Since the heater is gone and we don't use the camper stove, those lines can come out, so that's my job for this weekend. Funny thing is, we've been camping as we're working. So we work on it for a few days and end where we know we are safe to use it over the weekend. Then when we get home, we hit it again. Temps have been miserable here in Michigan, it's either too hot, too humid or just hard to deal with.
