  • Some place to put things from your pockets.
  • Grab bar on bottom shelf would make sitting up easier.
  • Inside clock and thermometer.
  • Need fire extinguisher (put in closet)
  • Need first-aid kit (put in closet)
  • Need some way to heat teardrop at night. Maybe a small kerosene lantern?
