I am going to set up my Campster
bed/dinette area, which is about 72x72 inches, so that in the front there is a bed, about 48 x 72 inches, crosswise, and then the last two feet of the dinette would normally be set up for sitting/eating, or feet when sleeping. This involves no modifications of the dinette structure- just the cushions. This will make it much easier to climb in and out of the bed, and if I want, I could use a small portable table in the last two feet.
I see two options:
1) Cut the current cushions off at the 24 inch mark, so that the front of the cushion can be flat and the back two feet set up as seating. I would then recover the seat cushions as the fabric is very worn.
2) Get a bed cushion for the front, new seat cushions for the back, and save the old, worn, but original configuration foam cushions for the next owner. The cushion fabric is shot on one side, but the cushions themselves are still quite comfortable. With a 2 inch memory foam topper over the bed I slept better than in my bed at home.
Option 1 is cheaper, but my question is, would I be better to consider future resale and leave the existing cushions alone? What I want to do would only mean that all of the four cushions would be in two pieces, instead of a single piece each.
Keeping in mind that anyone wanting to use the original dinette configuration would need to have the cushions recovered, anyway, do you think that cutting the foam to the sizes I want would be a problem for resale?
