If not the deluxe layout B or standard layout 6 with the side dinette would be an easy mod to make a bunk on a "straight" wall.

The floor plan that sleeps four is the standard layout #4, with the sofa/bunk in front. The OP was inquiring about the deluxe floor plan A with the front dinette. Unfortunately, that dinette does not make into bunks, so it only sleeps three (and person 3 had better be a child, since the dinette does not span the full width of the trailer).



Returning to the OP's original question… How do you get a trailer that will sleep four with a bathroom when the kids are along, and then, without buying a new trailer, have a trailer that has a dinette for two and a permanent bed for empty-nesters? (I hope I am understanding the question correctly.) In my mind the lightest, least expensive way to do that is with a Scamp standard layout 4. Use it as it comes from the factory until the children are gone. Then remove the upper bunk and convert the front to a dinette (lots of threads on that in this forum). You can easily have both arrangements in the same trailer. Trying to have them all at the same time is where it gets complicated.

Humm, okay I'm not a woodworker, but I think you CAN have it all. It would start with leaving the back cushion attached to the front of the trailer. It would make the front dinette seating pretty narrow, but doable. Cut out the center section and rework so it would accept a board to reconvert to a bed. Reframe as needed. Cushions to fit would need to be custom made. Small removable table in the middle of the cut out section could be used as needed.

Funny how you'll be talking about something (in a theoretical sort of way) and then it unexpectedly shows up…

Happened to see this photo in a unit for sale… pretty much what you were describing, Donna.

In the 16'er, the side bath is going to make it hard to access the streetside seat - you'll have to move the table a bit to get in and out.

Does the front dinette sleep 2, or does it have a bunk?

I have asked y'all to quit giving me modification ideas but you just will not stop. The trouble is, every thread I read gives me ideas! I think the key to the front bunk to dinette mod is to have the table non-fixed. In other words it could slide back and forth a little to let the driver-side person in and out. Otherwise you end up with a pretty small table.

The table makes up the bottom bed. A canvas sling makes up the upper bed.
It stows in the restroom when not used.
Can't remember the weight limit? Maybe 75lbs.
