One thing often lacking in a motor home or RV is a dedicated office space. Since I spend a lot of my time working at the computer, my plan is to create a mobile office by altering the lounge area.
As the drawing shows, it will involve removing one sofa and rotating the table ninety degrees. One end of the table will be for dining and the other for a desktop. The existing table comes with an extension, so there should be enough for the longer length. And this bigger surface will be handy for projects that would require more space.
I’ll get a chair that can function at the desk and as a lounger; perhaps one of those plush high back executive models. And maybe an ottoman that has storage inside too.
Some exterior storage space will be lost by removing the sofa. To retain a portion, I can create a box under the window that would be accessible from the outside. The top of the box inside would serve as a shelf. In the corner, under the desk and on top of the box, can be two drawers for paper, pencils, and other office supplies.
I will be downsizing from a desktop computer to a laptop. Not only will it be smaller, but it’ll provide flexibility. I can work at the desk, in the lounge chair, outside at the picnic table or take it to a bookstore. My all-in-one printer, scanner, fax will likely be replaced with something smaller. I plan to go as paperless as possible, so the file cabinet will probably become a divided fan-folder. Lots of scanning predicted in my near future.
So what do you think? Have I left out anything critical? I think a mobile office will be really nice to have while on the journey.
