How a Corner RV Bunk Room Was Converted to a Mobile Office

Solving the problem First, a box was built using materials leftover from the bunk removal  to cover the hot water heater and electrical wiring.  Both boxes can be  easily disassembled if repairs are needed.

Next, in order to avoid having to  reroute the plumbing, a pony wall was built to enclose the pipe using  more salvaged materials (including leftover wallpaper strips to cover  the seams).

Some cushioning was added to the top of the wall using a faux leather piece which was also salvaged from the bunk demolition.

The post, painted to match the rest of the wood in the RV, was attached  to the ceiling using a disk cut from a piece of salvaged plastic, which  was screwed to the top of post and to the ceiling.

The desk

The desk was handmade, cut to fit the space, finished, and mounted with metal braces on three sides.

Powering the electronics Since there were no electrical outlets in the bunk area, Susie has to  use extension cords to power her computer and other electronics for now  until she is able to hire an electrician to add an outlet.

She then ran a flat extension cord along the wall, which she plans to hold in place using Command hooks or cord clips.

Here is where the extension cord plugs into the outlet.  Susie uses a Progressive Industries RV surge protector to make sure her electronics will be protected in the event of a power surge or low voltage situation.

Here is Susie’s office after 11 months of almost daily use.  The larger monitor is mounted to the desk with a heavy duty articulating mount so that it can, as Susie says, “withstand the mini-tsunami that occurs inside a towable on moving days.”
