Microwave out, Storage in

July 31, 2011

When we originally designed The Tortuga Expedition Camper, we installed a microwave oven. In real life on the road, we used it only occasionally to reheat coffee or a bowl of soup. Since propane is the best way to cook, and it is readily available everywhere in the world, the microwave was really an unneeded luxury. The hole it was using was taking up a large valuable storage space. Jeff Paddock at Nautilus, (www.nautilusconstruction.com), in La Pine, OR put his amazing custom cabinet making skills to work, and we quickly had two very useable shelves with dual grain-matched cherry-wood doors that close with secure marine-quality latches. The beautiful cherry will soon darken to blend with the other cabinets.
