I'm having all new cushions made up ($$$!!) - and am having custom backs made for those spots that will be thicker (6") at the end facing towards the interior, tapering to 0" towards the front - resulting in a 'squared' back to the seats, and about 6" forward of the sides of the hull. They will be useful as 'ramps' for TV watching in the bed area too.

I want to leave the front settee as a convertible for an extra bunk, and this was a good solution.

Karen love your conversion! What size table are you using? Where did you purchase your table? I seen some on amazon but tables come in different size. Thanks

We both have "Howdaseats" and use them either sitting at the dinette or on the bed. We fine them very comfortable.

seat solutions...

i'm in a casita which shares the same dismal seating situation at the dinette. i camp host a few times a year and each time always involves inclement weather forcing a lot of seat time inside. the cushions provided form a 90 degree angle which is not comfortable for seating. my first solution was to build a frame for the oem cushions. this was an improvement as it raised the front of the seat cushion and moved the back cushion forward...kinda like a real chair.

turned out it still wasn't comfy enough for these old bones. then, a fellow camper told me about these. they're sold as "event seats", they fold in half and have backpack straps so you can get them easily to & from the stadium (or whatever). man! these things are the cat's meow...very cushioned and the back angle adjusts. they're pricey but i managed to get the west marine guys to give me half off the pair because they were "shopworn" (dusty).

after several 2-3 week trips and a 1 month host gig my seat search has ended.
