Ideas for front seating area

Ihave been working on my ‘84 u haul and am at the point of wanting to. Make a comfortable - well more comfortable - seating area instead of the current bunk beds. Anyone done anything in that area. ?

We were able to buy a pair of the Captains chairs that are used in one model of the 17 foot Casita's. Installed it in the front just inside the door. Couldn't fit both because of an extension on the counter top. Sold the Uhaul, still have one captain chair with swivel.

Hmmm... “Comfortable” means different things to different people. My wife like to curl up with her feet up and lots of pillows. I like a seat with a firm, angled backrest and some lumbar support. Are you wanting a couch or dinette seating with a table? Does it need to convert for sleeping?

Look at IKEA on-line at futon or love seat mattresses, one of those might work out for you. Some patio furniture pads may also work, but you would have to fasten them down with either velcro or anti slip material like that used under rugs.
We improve the seating comfort in our Scamp 13 by placing very thin sleeping pads like those used by backpackers, under the original foam pads. Good luck

When I had my Boler 1300 we would put the bunk up and utilize it as a shelf to pack more stuff bottom and top.
