Scamp 13’ front dinette to bed question

Can someone tell me if the front dinette on a 13’ Scamp converts to a bed, like the back dinette does? Oddly, i dont see that information anywhere.

Also, the deluxe front dinette model comes with a cabinet to the right of the sink, reducing the length of a would be bed. What is the length of that actual or potential bed space? Is it possible to cut a cavity in that cabinet behind the cushion and build up a platform to accommodate a sleeper’s legs? Has anyone done this? Is that cabinet necessary for stability and would that modification compromise that stability?

Thanks for your replies in advance. I’ve learned so much here.

It does convert to a bed, and you are correct about the cabinet- the bed is "child-size." I don't know the exact length.

It's my understanding they will delete the cabinet if requested, making the bed full-width and usable by a small-to-average adult. It is not required for structural reasons.

I don't know about the practicality of modifying the cabinet to create legroom for a taller person. It's a long shot, but you might be able to work with Scamp's sales department to find a nearby owner with that layout for a demo. The owner gets a small bonus if you place an order, so it's a win-win-win.
