Additional Storage

    This is awesome sauce! My mom always talked about wanting a RV but I highly doubt it would of been like this. You have to have an eye for this type of designs! Like I don’t have a big family of my own but I sure would like one of these just because! LOVE IT!

    The transformations are very cute and homey. This gives the rvs a more homey and comfortable feeling. I don’t own an RV but these are neat!

    We took out our dinette on our RV too. We opted to replace with an additional sofa so we have more seating & sleeping area, so our super slide is all sofa. When we eat, we bring out small folding tables we bought at BJ’s (the rectangular plastic ones) that we put up and take down in a flash. Much more comfortable to eat than being squished in that dinette!

      That does seem like a smarter use of the space, especially with all the multi-use furniture that’s available nowadays – sofas with hidden storage, coffee tables that lift up for eating, etc. I’ll bet it’s nice to have extra comfortable seating.

    Nice ideas, have had several RV Trailers always replace the booth. Current one had furnace under one bench ,air duct, and water pump under other bench. Custom built cabinets to accommodate those items, put a modified counter top on top, shelves underneath, then used countertop to make a table that slides out, added two padded chairs and waalaa.

    I did the same thing! It added so much more storage room and floor space! Also took out the sofa and built a work station!

    I’ve got a newer travel trailer with the horseshoe style table. It’s nice for us as there’s storage under each side seat and the back seating area can be rolled out and used as a foot rest. If I were going to change anything at this time I would make a swing out tv stand as the tv currently turns but doesn’t allow people sitting on the couch on the left to see all of the tv.
