love seat

We just picked up our Berkshire a few months ago and the Love seat seems to be the worst couch I have ever sat on. I owned a 04 Monaco Knight that had the same setup with a full size couch on the driverís side and a love seat on the passenger side and they were both very comfortable. The Love seat in the Berkshire seems to have a short seat on the bottom. Has anyone else noticed that the love seat is very uncomfortable?

Uncomfortable is being too kind. The love seat is basically useless. We are giving serious thought to taking it out and putting some more cabinets in that spot with some more counter space. It doesn't seem like it should be a big deal and I think it would be a fairly simple modification. We'll see as we try to get into it over the winter.

We use that seat mostly for the younger children when travelling. There is storage under the love seat that we use to store a lot of extra supplies like toilet paper, paper towels, and other paper goods.

Hello,

We just picked up our 2011 Berkshire 360FWS with the love seat. Ours seems to be comfortable although I admit we have not used it much since the coach is new. We have the leather interior and the love seat folds out into a bed with an inflatable air mattress. There is no storage beneath.

I think yours is different than the 390. The 390 has a full couch with the air mattress that folds out into a queen bed, but the love seat doesn't fold out and has limited storage underneath it. I have short legs, but I still find the love seat to be uncomfortable because of the short seat and the stiffness of the cushions. Ours is also leather. The couch is very comfortable as is the rest of the coach, but that love seat is tough on the tush.

Now you got me thinking, I may have the sofa (although it does seem small) that I am calling a loveseat.

I'm planning on taking the loveseat out and putting in an L shaped workstation/desk area with some cabinets. One of my "down the road" projects.

love seat

Ours we find of no use either. We are waiting to hear back from forest River on whether or not we can remove it and have an additional passenger seat installed in the space so it would be a similar setup to a Georgie Boy. Basically 3 captains seats, 2 with electronics, 1 without. Everyone seems to love the passenger seat while we're traveling, so if we can have enough room to swivel it and your forward vision is not blocked too much when in transit, we may do it.

I doubt there is enough structure in the floor to bolt a seat to. Since the floor is a slide, there doesn't appear to be any metal framing underneath.
