Dinette Back Cushions too thick
I'll admit that I'm a pretty big guy at 6' 2" and 230 lbs. But the dinette area on our new 3051s is very cramped for me. We previously had an Arctic Fox Travel Trailer and the whole dinette area was much more spread out. The table was larger and the space between the table and the back cushions was much much larger.
So, even though the RV is brand new, we took the back cushions into a upholstery shop and had new cushions made.
I thought they'd simply cut the existing cushions in half and modify the upholstery to cover the smaller foam. But what they did was replace the 5" thick back cushion foam with a firmer 3" thick foam. Then they rebuilt the fabric covering the foam to 2.5" thick and put the 3" foam inside.
The end result is perfect. Yes, you lose the ability to make a bed out of the dinette area - but that's something we'd never ever use. And, we did keep the original foam so if we had to we could be prepared to use that original foam if push came to shove.
The thinner foam ads about 3" more space between the back of the cushion and the dinette table on both sides. This opens up that cramped area really well. It now feels just as roomy as the old Travel Trailer now. Plus the firmer foam is more comfortable.
