Default Airline storage bins

Hi folks, a question about the 91 WB PT40 models. If the coach has the fabric covered valances in the living room above couch , is it possible to add the airline storage bins in place of them? Are the bins something that is easily found here on the forum or perhaps Randy has some laying in his shop? Seems as though should not be too difficult. Was thinking about only doing it on street side of room above couch.
Appreciate your insights / experiences regarding such.

Try living without it first. I think mpierce doesn't have bins and prefers it without for the additional head room.

My wife hit her head on an open bin (didn't close it after getting something) with enough force to vomit!

Shaaksma,
That was a very visual response of your wife banging her head, was she North/ South, East/West orientation when it happened , did it projectile into the bin? Joking , that's not funny when you whack your head that hard to induce vomiting. Good point, just thinking about maximizing storage potential for full timing. Also think they might make a good *** cabinet.

Randy good to know!! These ideas are evolving as I learn here on the site. Thank you for the response.

Curious about whether anyone has done a twist on valances or airline cabinets like bookshelves or mason jar storage or whatever. If so any pictures would be appreciated?

It really opens up the front room. Hanskas 1990 has the bins. They have commented also on how big it makes that room.
You do give up some storage. But, we really like the openness it provides.
As noted, I would leave it alone for a while. Then, go in some like sized coaches, and see what you think.
