2010 scamp layout 7 dinette mod suggestions?

Sooo...I'm short and I find the side dinette very uncomfortable. Has anyone done any mods to make it comfy? Or to use it another way?
In the evening, I ended up bringing in a folding chair, putting it in the aisle and propping my feet on the dinette lol

Perhaps I should have gotten the bathroom instead...Click image for larger version

Do you meant the table is too low or too high or the seating bunks are too high off the floor deck?

Seating is too high, also the 90 degree back is not comfy. I'm more of a lounger. I tried setting it up as a sofa but feet are off the floor and I feel like the sides of the camper aren't substantial enough to lean on. Kinda silly I suppose.

We dont really sit at table and eat. My thinking was that I am self employed and could use the dinette as an office if a client had an emergency while I was on the road.

Are you solo or sharing the space? If shared, build a half deck riser for your side of the table. Solo, build a whole riser. Put a storage drawer in it accessible from the aisle, either solo or doubled. I read one post where they said they use pillow pets, or hollowed out stuffed animals as storage for extra clothes, towels and linens. Maybe that could save your back a little.

2010 scamp layout 7 dinette mod suggestions?

I've seen a mod on a Casita 17 Spirit (side dinette) in which swivel chairs were mounted on the dinette bases. I don't know if Scamp's is big enough to do the same.

But since you have layout 7, what about the front sofa? Is it being used for something else? With the addition of a throw pillow or two, I find the angled backrest very comfortable for lounging on the front sofa of my Scamp 13, and the cushions don't slide around like they do on the dinette. (Storing the banana cushion on edge behind the backrest increases the angle slightly, a little trick I learned from this forum.)

I do like the sofa! But I've been sleeping in the lower bunk - my tall teen on the dinette bed.
I wonder if I should make the side dinette my bed and not set up the bunks. She prefers to loll about in bed so no need for a dinette really.
