Don, we NEVER have had to use the front 'sofa' to sleep on YET. I say YET, because thankfully,,I have NEVER been in the dog house with the Trailer Goddess!! We have decided to leave the rear dinnette made up as a bed 24/7 and we use the front sofa to stow our bags n excess cargo on at night. 99% of all of our cooking and dining IS done outside under our bag awning. I just couldn't bear to hack up the front of the egg although (as a gear-head), I have seen some REALLY nice conversions, MOST of which are done in "Trailer Queen" style trailers...!!?
...just for couriosity sake, have you ever heard of the C S R A ?????
Yes I have Doug. I am a lifetime member. We finished the '40 Chev on a Thurs night in 1984 (as if they are ever finished) and headed out to the Canats in Peterborough 6 hours later. Car has been on the road ever since. I like your idea about not hacking up the front end. Think we will try ours a few times the way it is before we decide to remodel.
