Good Information for the future Hunter Owner but:

Stick-on tiles just don't seem todo well in RV's. They aren't designed for the heat that builds up and will start to shrink and/or peel up after the first season.

If anyone has found stick-on tiles that don't peel up let us all know.

All great suggestions and very generous folks for taking the time to help us. I am kind of thinking Cork flooring for a little added insulation. Can't afford it for my house, but it shouldn't take too much to cover the area.

Now here is a "DUMB" question...how many people just use the two benches as "twin" beds instead of a large bed? My husband was a sailor so he's used to a small rack. Although we do love our king size bed.

I have seen several Jr.s modified to twin beds, it appears to work just fine as long as the length will work out.

And about rack size..... please TMI.

Good luck with the Compasct Jr project. I spent much less than Bill, but my goals were more simple. We view our as a tent on wheels.
