i found the dinette seating in my casita 16'er to be dismal. the ninety degree angle of the cushions didn't give a lot of support and never failed to give me a back ache. i tried several "cures" to no avail. a fellow member here turned me on to these wonderful seats from west marine. they are "event seats" intended for concerts, sports events, etc. and fold in half with backpack straps for getting them into the venue. i never use that feature but i do sit in them a lot while camp hosting, rainy days and any other time i just need to sit. very comfy altho a bit pricey but well worth it for my tired old butt.

A lot of people with Escape 21's aand 5.0TA's are putting in a U-shaped dinette at the rear, with the idea of providing a nice lounging area. They seem to be very happy with it. Not sure if I will do this, or just to plan to lounge on the large dinette seats with a custom table folded smaller, and dropped to be used as a coffee table.

One advantage of lounging back there is the 3 big windows surrounding you.

Lounging, as most other pursuits, requires practice. The more the better. I have raised it to high art..........even in the Little Joe.

It might have been me? In any case, I have two of the West Marine chairs in place of the original cushions at the front table in my Escape 17B. Very comfortable chairs. They also fold flat, providing a sleeping cushion for a very short person...

My 19's front dinette is too small for me but sometimes you just have to lounge with what you got.

I'm surprised a creative fellow like you doesn't have a flip-up padded footrest, Myron.

What is the brand name of the blue "back pack" seat, Patrick? It looks perfect!

mine have a west marine logo. i doubt they actually make them but i've not seen them under any other label. you can see them at west marine stores or online? mine are the old versions, the new versions are a bit larger so you might want to check dimensions. also, i you can find the older versions you might be able to get a deal...i got mine for half off since there were new ones already in the store.

12 years of use has proven the comfort and versatility of my wraparound couch design along with two different pedestal tables and a slide out feature for the bridge...

Hi all! First time posting here. We've also got an Escape 19' ordered due next March. We're going to have a large U-shape lounge area in the back (which can also turn into a Queen bed) and the front will be turned into a permanent bed. Should be pretty comfy with a few throw pillows in there as well!

I agree with others...pile the bed with pillows. I've attached a photo showing my 2 comforters set up on my bed (when folded they make 4 layers of comfort). The second photo shows how I "glamp-up" my trailer. A colorful fleece throw, pillows with matching curtain panels and a few stuffed animals go far to make my tiny trailer extra comfy!

Myron, that's a great picture! Who's your friend at the window there?
