Add another room to your RV with this brilliant mod

We came across an RV mod completed by Facebook user Joshua Torres, and we’re blown away by it! Torres had no use for the bunk beds in his Keystone RV, so he took them out (with some help) and created a laundry room and office. How’s that for adding a whole new room to your RV?

A few commenters asked if these were regular washer/dryer or portable. Torres wrote, “They are both portable. They work really really well. I’m surprised on how well the dryer works. Definitely a game-changer. We don’t have to worry about how good the laundry facility is anymore.” This is the washer and this is the dryer. He explains, “The reason I chose this washer is because of the hot and cold water options. It has both and is all automatic like a home one.”

Another commenter, Robbie Matthews Fravel, wrote, “Love what you did. We removed our bunks as well. We couldn’t take the bottom side bunk completely out due to all the components for the outside kitchen. But we now have a walk-in storage/pantry and closet. I may request some changes for that washer/dryer idea!!!”

Few problems. He used PVC to ABS pipe with the wrong glue and it will separate. They’re different plastics they need a transition glue which is bright green to identify it as such. The running P-trap in the line won’t work properly as the water running down the line will suck the water out of it allowing smells to come into the room Where he cut into the existing ABS line with the PVC San-T fitting the fitting is upside-down. There’s more to plumbing than knowing where the donut shop is.

My Jayco has a bank bunkroom with full room slide. The upper bunk swings against the wall when not resting on cleats, and the lower bunk is just 2 “J-cube” pillow-beds, non-existent when removed. This leaves me an empty box about 8×8 into which I move folding worktables, a modest “real” desk, or carry bikes or other toys dry and inside as the current mission demands. The only caveat is remembering to rotate fullsize furniture before bringing the slide in to 1/2 the room width.

Will you please share the brand/model of the washer and dryer in the Add a room article?
Thanks! Amy

He did. Click on the blue “This is the washer” and “This is the dryer”. Links to the products.

DH and I started our RV search with bunk models for this very reason…. conversion of the bunk room to an office so DH can work from the road. Most of what we found in our preference range had the bunk rooms in the walkway between kitchen, half bath, and the bedroom. We realized that wouldn’t work for us they way we needed it too.

Good job, Joshua, on making your living space YOUR OWN.

our old Wilderness trailer had the bunks in the back right corner; it would have been ideal to change the bottom bunk space to an office.
