This oak desk was made to fit in one of the slide outs of an RV. The owners are soon going to be full time “RV’ers” and wanted a place to write letters and postcards to family besides the dinning table. Anyone with a RV whether it is a tow behind, fifth wheel or class a and above knows that realestate is a premium.

I had 35 in length, 24 of depth by 32 inches of height to play with and I used every bit of it. The cabinet on the right could not come up over the window. The bottom drawer has files that run length wise. As you’re sitting at the desk and you open the drawer so you can easily read them. I made a smaller box with mail slots to better utilize the space I had to “play” with. The single leg was for easier in and out/access being that there is a recliner just to the side not visible being that I took it out while I bolted the desk to the studs. The desk had to match the existing decor and color. The owners did not want the desk to look like an add on.

Pretty cool. Does it collapse and stow away when they are travelling?

you achieved your goals… size constraint, owner preferences, functional and attractive.

well done. Kind of like working below decks on a boat… although I think an RV is spacious by comparison… lol… and the RV isn’t rolling side to side as you work.
