New to us Adventurer 35A

We just took delivery on a '06 Adventurer. This is our first Class A coach.

Question for the group:
There is a cabinet over the driver and passengers seats in the sidewall. They look to be about 3" deep with the door hinged at the top.
What do you put in there? It seems too shallow to be useful and I'm afraid anything in there will fall and conk you on the head if you open the door.

Anybody have any experience with these compartments?


Thanks
John.

They are for your money if you have any left after buying and driving these rigs

My passenger side cabinet came with a rack in it for CD/DVDs.

I keep books, field guide, domino's, etc. in the driver's side cabinet.

I too keep binoculars on the drivers side (2 pr - one for me and one for the wife), the passenger side we use for CD's and DVD's. The pistons on the doors will keep them closed when you are moving with no problem.

Hi,
the one by the driver I keep all my roadmaps and flyers from campgrounds or national parks. The one on the passenger side I keep Vcr Tapes and a small tool case.

In 53K nothing has ever fallen out of those cabinets or any other cabinet for that matter. Things may have moved a little so you have to be careful when opening cabinets after you have stopped. We use a lot of slip stops which hold everything in place usually.

Congrats on your new coach and I'm sure it will give many years of great service as it is a Winnebago!

Welcome. I have the same coach and love it. My wife and I divied up ... she gets her side and I have mine. I have charger cables and misc. STUFF on my side. We traded a Pace Arrow 37A 2002 for our '05 Adventurer. Changed because we couldn't stand the 30 amp service and my wife loved the floor plan. Looking back, I feel it was a real trade up. Many little things that just make it more deluxe. Also very low mileage. Enjoy !

some neat stuff

On the driver side we keep 2 or 3 first aid kits, on the right goes a flashlight or two, and the electronic remotes.
