Default Office in a RoadTrek

Does anyone travel with laptop computers /printers/ etc that they use throughout the day for work ?? How do you secure them ? Where do you keep them... Looking for ideas on maintaining an office in a Roadtrek 190P or 210P.

I use my Sprinter as an office occasionally, mainly while parked in my driveway.

I have a Canon inkjet all-in-one that fits on the kitchen counter, and a laptop I use while sitting at the dinette. If I'm in the driveway, shore power is used. Both devices plug into a conveniently located outlet. If no shore power, both are plugged into a sine-wave producing inverter drawing juice from the coach battery, or I run the generator.

Neither device is secure in the sense that it wouldn't become a missile in a crash, so before I go anywhere, I put the printer and the laptop in the closet.

At home I connect to the internet via an Eero mesh wifi setup. Elsewhere I use a Sprint wifi hotspot.

Check out Interbolg's Lagun table setup.

I searched for a printer several years ago that would fit the top shelf behind the rollup door of the TV cabinet in our 99D190P. Found that the HP LaserJet P1102w fit perfectly with rollup door down when rolling and power is already available in the cabinet. Just use a laptop on front or rear Roadtrek table.

Has anyone purchased a travel printer since this last post. I just spent some time on the road and realized I needed a printer.


I also had a question answered on this latest trip that I have been seeking since we bought the Agile. While the build sheet showed we have the crosswind assist, I never noticed that it was working. I80 between Cheyenne and Laramie provided the needed test environment that lit up my dash numerous times with the wind assist announcement. It works!


Thanks

For occasional use, you can't beat the tiny Canon Pixma iP110:
