One more comment about removing the overhead bunk rear section: The hinge is a piano type that runs the entire length of the bunk; lots of screws. I removed the screws from the forward section that remains on the coach. That way, the hinge goes with the rear section that I removed. At each end where the panels pivot there is a shouldered bolt that serves as a pivot point; that has to come out as well, but very easy to remove. Then the rear section can be easily taken down - but it is heavy, so a helper is required. The nice thing about this is that it's easily re-installed if you change your mind or decide to sell or trade.
I have an ACE 29.3 and had considered something like that. Did you make that slide yourself or find one somewhere? Also, it is hard to tell from the photo, but are the sides very tall? If not, do things fall over and jam up while bouncing down the road?
