Thats kinda the idea I have Cindy but my trailer does not have a cut out at the middle cushion. It is one piece straight across so my mount will be out in the middle of the traffic area more. Thats why sunken. You mentioned a drop leaf, never thought of that. Might be able to work that into this plan.
I really liked the aluminum drop leaf table addition i saw but i couldn't use it w/o removing the bunk. Boler mods are feats of engineering. I cant wait to see what you come up with.

I went simple and just made a table the size of the middle sofa cushion support. I like versatility and did not want to lose the top bunk option. Now it can be a sofa, a bunk, or a dinette depending on the need at the time. It is small but still holds two place settings. it is not quite done though. i would still like to add the hardware to the table top so it swivels and glides into different positions. Some day...... I will see if i can add a picture, wish me luck. The drop leaf gets out of the way when needed as well.
I love that mod, but it appears that you have a molded bench with the cut out already there. Did your trailer come that way, or did you make the cut out yourself?

I'm not Cyndi, but I have noticed that some (later) Bolers have this cutout in the frame and bench (for the Porta Potti to slide in and out of). It seems that earlier Bolers didn't have it, although I don't know when the switch was. Or perhaps it was an option or there was a long change-over.

I would like to see what the frame looks like on the trailers with the cutout there; my Boler has a substantial frame crossmember in that place (and no cutout).

It was there already. i would like to see what a cut out one looks like as well. If it had to be cut it out it would look nice with nice matching cupboard doors for access to the storage, that would cover up the holes nicely too. I love the picture of your boler, what a fabulous spot to camp.

Here's a couple of topics where individuals who owned Scamps took the front couch out and made small dinettes. In both cases, the front couch area was a solid piece of fiberglass (ala couch). Maybe it will give you some ideas:

Donna,

I may be missing something here but it doesn't look/read to me like either of those two had the solid (raised) floor there under the couch. I don't see any reference to frame mods, so it seems like they both already had the "niche" there with a door for the porta potti. That makes the floor under the center of the couch level with the main floor of the trailer in the center without modifying it.

Or..?

Our Boler has the raised floor. We removed the bench and rebuilt new benches. One has storage under the seat and the other has the portapottie. The table fits in between and makes a bed when needed. Maybe this will give you the idea.

Raya, You're correct. The Scamps have flat floors, no raised area in the front. I was trying to answer April's comment about the solid fiberglass structure.
"I love that mod, but it appears that you have a molded bench with the cut out already there. Did your trailer come that way, or did you make the cut out yourself?"

There's a niche and door right in the middle, not really a cutout, but in both cases all that was replaced by custom built cupboards so now there's separate seating and room for a table. See also Barbara's comment above.

That looks nice, Barbara, thanks for the photo (have you posted more of this mod elsewhere?)

One nice side effect of building the dinette "on top of" the raised portion of the floor that some Bolers have is that the table would then be at window height (like it is at the rear dinette). If you used the lower floor height and then built the seats up with the normal height, the table looks like it would be a ways below the window.

Of course how nice to have the cutout there just waiting for you, like in Cyndi's trailer.

Raya

PS I see what you mean, Donna; I was thinking "cut out" as in floor notch, but she must have meant it as in "square missing out of the couch seat base."

PPS I'd still love to see the frame on a trailer with the cutout. What's there where mine has the big honking beam? I mean, I realize it could be cut, but it seems like it would be a structural member.
