Hello John & Diane!
Thanks so much for your reply to my question about changing out the dinette/sofa in our 27K. I know the "L" part of the sofa has a mess of stuff underneath and it would create a huge job to try to relocate any of it.
My thought had been to maybe cut out the longer portion of the sofa to fit a small couch/loveseat, and then to build or have built some kind of solid surface to be placed on top of the remaining "L" part (that is no longer an "L") - making like an end table and a place for a lamp.
My problem is that I am constantly dreaming up ideas, and many of the are just not that do-able!
Some other real nice folks who own a similar coach shared with me some directions for bumping out the sofa area while keeping the bathroom wall section with all the electrical, converter, wiring and all the other stuff intact. It sounds a lot like what you have done
They extended the sofa (on the longer section) out a few inches, building up the underneath support. Then they reupholstered the now-wider sofa cushion with thicker foam and a nice patterned material. I like your idea of hinging the seat for easier access, and moving the electric plug. We don't plan to use this area as a bed, and don't care if we have to give up the "dining" table leg holes. We use folding tables for eating and doing other things.
Your project seems like it's not too complicated a project, but we just haven't pursued this avenue yet. We are still thinking on many different ideas, but nothing so far is an easy fix!
Thanks again for your reply!
