I have a  Sportsman Classic 13FK that I love. Currently using a NuWave mini oven & Nu Wave stove. I need a bit more counter space. Thinking about cutting into the space below the counter and above the cabinets to install a slide out shelf. Has anyone done anything like that? Also considered a snap on shelf made of closet wire so I can just snap it on when cooking and put it away after. Both appliances are light weight not more than 3 lbs.  Friend said his mother had one in her kitchen in the 40's called a bread board just slide in and out of the counter. He said if I cut into the cabinet below counter and install what I want the bouncing of the trailer will damage the counter top??  Using both appliances on the counter plus utensils & a coffee pot doesn't leave much space to work with. Any IDEAS of how I can do this. I've done lots of modifications and love coming up with something new. Thanks in advance..hopefully you can help..Surprised Nancy

Im not one for cutting into my trailer, heck, I dont even put a nail in to hang anything. I looked at your layout and pictures of a 13fk and my only suggestion would be to mount a shelf above your counter and place your appliances up there. You could even hang a shelf up with chains so you could take it down when you dont need it. Ive seen members on here hang toaster ovens with chains, why not a shelf? Any mods I do to my trailer I try and make them non permanate as possible so hopefully when I sell it it will be as original as possible. I know looking at used trailers when I see some of the mods its a real turn off…each person has their own taste I guess. Good Luck with your dilemma and let us know what solution you came up with :)
