It IS a gem !

What are you thinking: sort of a glove box—for things like sunglasses, all the usual RV keys, and such ?

That should be the lid for the engine compartment, so … is it affixed ? How ? Any worries about its contents, or what it might hit, when the lid has to get lifted ?

I miss my 1982 28’ Airstream Excella Class A … with the GM crate motor 454 that I put in it :-( But I do NOT miss the gasoline bill :-p

4 coats of poly Gramps. and NBeener: I drilled 2 quarter inch holes into the engine cover, and inserted them from the underside, nutted them down tight, then used wing nuts w/starwashers to attach the console to the engine compartment. Just remove the drawers, loosen the wingnuts, and you can remove it when needed.

Nice console storage box. Is it bolted down to the engine cover?
What kind of Motorhome do you have?

thnx Jim. I drilled 2 quarter inch holes into the engine cover, and inserted them from the underside, nutted them down tight, then used wing nuts w/starwashers to attach the console to the engine compartment. Just remove the drawers, loosen the wingnuts, and you can remove it when needed. It’s very ez to remove if needed. The RV actually is my in-laws. I do have an ‘02 Bounder. It has a console, and theirs didn’t…. That’s where the idea came from.
