Need help on front dinette for 13' Perris Pacer

I have a 1980 Perris Pacer that has been in storage for quite awhile, that I'm just now getting around to some modifications. I'm looking for some help . I'd like to remove the front bunk bed setup and build a small dinette. I can't seem to locate (Although i've seen pics on this website) of some of the mods others have done. Does anyone have a link, pics, suggestions dimensions etc . The Perris Pacer is very similar to a 13' scamp.

Thanks in Advance

You might want to check out Vickie B. threads about her Perris Pacer. She remodeled the front bench into a dinette.

There's an earlier one specifically about the dinette, too.

Hi Alan!

Welcome to Perris Pacer Land! As you know, the PP cabinets and benches are glassed in rather than bolted in. This is a good/bad thing. Good- NO rivets/bolts to outside. Bad---hard to remove.

We are so glad to have the front dinette! Because the access holes on the top of the bench were not evenly spaced with the porta potty door, we had to do some creative cutting/reinforcing.

Ah Ha---the seat cushions! Well after thinking and re-thinking, I decided to sacrifice the BACK cushion of that front couch/bunk. (The cushion that becomes the top bunk.) I had already removed the fabric and the big board the foam was on, so it was a simple matter of removing my home-made cushion cover, and cutting it into three pieces!

Voila! Since it was the correct shape, it was the best course of action for me. Now , since that piece of foam is 3" instead of 4"---I bought a 1" pad from Walmart and cut to fit each piece before making new covers.

Alan,

Here's a link to answers I got when I asked people how big their cut out is.

What is the size of your front dinette cut-out?
