Huh, interesting! I'll have to measure ours sometime.

any idea of the time/cost to do this? removing the couch and adding a dinette is for sure my next project.

any help would be greatly appreciated!

I really like the Dinette. I had been thinking maybe I could pull one out of a Dolphin or similar.
This is a conversion to really consider.

I'm doing this conversion this spring. We do widow coverings for a living and I do a lot of work in the Marine industry. I've got our rig on the schedule with and of our contacts that does upholstery and furniture on yachts. We're trying to design something that would both convert to a bed from a dinette, but also pull out once converted to flat.

I'll send updates as this progresses. Goes to the shop in May.

I really enjoy seeing what the dinette configuration can do for folks. I would enjoy a better dining situation, laptop station with a resting spot if extended. However, it is hard to give up a sofa for me at this point. Will archive this conversion in my memory in case priorities change! Thanks for sharing this great idea.

Yeah, I was almost all in as a mod I'd want to do to ours, then I remembered how my wife loves to stretch out on couches. D'oh!

There are times when reading on the couch or having a nice relaxing conversation with a cup of coffee sitting in the mid platform cup support is nice. Of course, I do not have a tv yet hooked up but, this summer at night when on my planned Colorado trip it may be nice to watch a movie on the couch before retiring to bed. Sitting straight up is not that comfortable to me so I sit on the couch and put my feet(with socks) on the counter front and that works. Nice that folks have options with the B-190 depending on their own individual needs/wants.
