How to make a whiteboard for the RV

A whiteboard?  If you know us, you’ll also know organization and planning aren’t our strong suit.  We struggle with keeping organized when on the road and that includes having notes scrawled on random scraps of paper tucked in corners throughout the truck and trailer.  Well, to combat this weakness we decided to make a central place to keep notes while camping.  And to accomplish this menial task I wanted to use power tools to do it.

The idea is simple.  Our RV refrigerator has removable front panels that we’ve already removed and painted to match the walls.  So, we removed the panels (the only thing holding them in is some plastic trim and double sided tape) and replaced them with whiteboard paneling that we picked up at Home Depot for $10.  All you need to do is remove the original panels, cut replacements the same size and slide them back in.  I used a table saw to make all the cuts, but you can use a circular saw, jig saw, hand saw, razor knife or any other sharp tool capable of cutting paneling.

To see how we did it take a look at the below video.
