My personal dilema:
Not wanting to lose the table space a full time bed would remove, but also not enjoying the large table and set up time to make the bed in the evening. Wanting to keep the Guacho as a sofa and have the under seat storage for the, er, "Facilities" at all times.
My accidental solution:
Saw one of these two seater cleverly collapsable tables at an RV show. They are intended to use as a TV tray, or a portable laptop table. Deep enough for two people to sit at the ends and have a meal, but not so deep as to take up ALL the dinnette seat when in the "Up" setting.
Just so happened, it was a perfect width for my evil plot.
The legs collapse INWARD, so there is no shifting of the table to get it to break down. The locking hinges are on the CENTER of the legs, and not the top. It's real easy to just click and drop.
BUT, since it isn't exactly wide enough to fit in the seat slots for support, nor is it deep enough to make much more than a single bed at best, I had 2 1x6s cut to width for the seat slots. The table long edges rest on the 1x6s, giving me nearly an extra foot of depth.
Next, I drop the seat backs as usual and roll out the bedding that is stored in the useless dead space on the rear seat of the dinnette. Regualar bed, quick and literally painless set up.
If I don't want a table there at all, I can collapse it completely and set on the bedding, making a side table for both dinnette seats. I am short, and can actually stretch my legs out on the seats while sitting with my back against the bedding. A larger person may be able to as well, if they sit more upright. Makes a GREAT TV watching position, and I don't lose my guacho as a nap spot or pooper hider.
Here is the table in actual use (Not pretty! Neat nicks.. you have been warned!!!)
