RV / MOTORHOME Custom made corner TV cabinet power lift and fireplace

We wanted a TV/Fireplace cabinet in our motorhome. I called several custom furniture makers and got prices from $3500 to $5000. So, I built it myself!

This is the 3rd version of the cabinet. I probably spent over 100 hours on this project. This third version turned out "good" but I'm going to try again and get it even more perfect. Also this turned out to be just a little big for our coach. I had to cut out a small section of the front left side so we could recline the passenger seat. On my next version I will try to cut the entire size down a couple inches.

FEATURES:

TV: Power lift compartment big enough for a 40 inch tv. Currently we have a 40 inch TCL 4K TV. It rubs against the sides of the opening so you have to hold the tv as you raise it. ( A 32 inch would fit better or you could attach some small rubber guides, I didn't mind guiding it with my hand as I raised it)

FIREPLACE: Very nice model. Heats our 36 foot coach better than the stock heater. The flame looks nicer than most too.

STORAGE: The side compartments are not deep but having the right side door near our RV door was perfect for a fire extinguisher, bear spray, etc. The left side storage holds a couple DVDs.

Flaws: The front drawer is functional but is wonky when you open it. I'm sure someone who knows how to install drawers could fix this. I had some over cuttings on the openings and there's no door on top of the tv opening. (Hoping to improve my new version)

But still this cabinet is a great addition. Much nicer to watch the tv at eye-level rather than where most RVs mount their tvs high in a cabinet.


It's oak, it's heavy and I mounted it with two large bolts to the subframe of our coach. (Installation is up to the buyer, I want no liability, sold as is, buyer assumes all risks)

It really surprised me to find no RV furniture makers offer cabinets like this. There were no examples to follow. Overall, this thing is very cool.

PRICE: $1,250 for the cabinet with the tv lift. $1450 with the fireplace, $1,650 with the TCL 40 inch tv.
