We'd like a 60" wide bed and a place to sit/eat without bothering someone who is still asleep in that bed. I'd welcome feedback on this idea for modifying a 16' Liberty Deluxe:
Divide the regular "forward" dinette area into two parts. The front part would be dedicated seating (two seats that face each other). The rear part (approx 12" wide) gets added to the regular 48" wide rear bed, for a total of 60" wide (queen-size width). The front "seating area" would have a small fold-way table for each side (so there wouldn't be a table blocking the whole aisle and access between the rear bed and the forward part of the trailer).
I haven't found dimensions for the forward dinette of the 16' LD, but if it is approx 36" wide this might work. Does anyone know the width of the forward dinette? The total bed width for a 16' LD isn't in the big "bed size
Doing things this way would let us keep a 60" wide bed down all the time and still have an inside place to eat, read etc.
Criticisms, ideas, comments are solicited. If we had a 60" wide bed (and a fridge
with a small freezer---my next challenge), then a used 16' Casita
could probably fit our needs at relatively light
weight--and maybe at a modest price.
