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.

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

Reversed floor plan in Escape 19'

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?

THANK THANK THANK YOU, I order two of these for our new trailer. Can't wait until they get here and I can get comfortable again. They are on sale 40% off at West Marine until 9/5 so I bought for my big butt and one for the Mrs.

Cindy and Kevin have the ultimate all-molded-towable. Their trailer has an actual living room complete with two recliners! OH MY STARS... recliners!

If you want one, be prepared for a long wait. I think there were only about 12 SilverCloud's manufactured.

Something tells me trying to sit on the bed or in the dinette for a few hours(maybe too buggy outside, or bad weather, or you just want privacy) may not be as good as those nice captain chairs or sofas found in more traditional TTs.

How has it worked out for couples out there on the road while fulltiming or out there for extended periods? Thanks!

I'm newish to fulltiming, (since Jan this year.) My 8x15 Trillium feels pretty big to me. I'm just over 5'10" and I had a visitor come in who is 6' and he was surprised by how big it feels to lounge in here. The dinette seating is pretty spacious as is the couch/bunk area.

When I was travelling to California from Tennesee and stopped for a few nights in Arizona someone stopped at my trailer and asked to show his family because he used to have a trillium and he mentioned that he never got over how spacious they feel.

This looks very cool.
