2012 Georgetown 351 DS refresh

Has anybody done a refresh/remodel? I have a 2012 351DS and looking to invest a little to bringing it back to life. Probably will replace the couch for sure, but curious if anyone has any pictures they could share of a remodel or things you may have added to make it more comfortable or user friendly.

Thanks in advance!

Ed

Most of them have removable backs, so it actually breaks down into 3 sections. I looked into doing this also.

The backs come off and the whole thing splits down the center when packaged.
It was very easy. Mounted to the slide floor with some short screws.

Our rig isn't as long as Iggy's, so our space in the exact same location only allows for the double recliner. Our studio chair is positioned for travel behind the co-pilot seat, but we can position it wherever once we're parked. BTW...our double recliner looks exactly the same style, but ours is in black to match the driver and co-pilot seat.

I also changed out the backsplash in the kitchen from mirrors to a style that mimics the old style tin ceilings (hated the constant cleaning of water spots)

I installed a fireplace where none existed, however, because I was restricted in real estate, it's not as large as rigs where it was designed to have one from the start.

Changed the bathroom door to hinge from the opposite side. It now allows us to create privacy when opened, and actually makes it a ensuite to the bedroom.

Oh......and as any man would do....replaced the living room TV from 32" to 40" and installed a sound bar.

My Georgetown is now a "Limited Edition" and I installed the badge to state that.

I'm addicted to mods....and there's no cure short of buying another RV.

I have a 2011 Georgetown 327DS and would like to know how to remove the main cabin TV from the wall. FR techs, at this year's International rally, were unable to remove it when they tried to replace it for me.

My suspicion is that FR bolted it to a plywood panel then mounted the panel to the wall and installed trim around the edges to hide the mounting screws. If I can remove it, I'd like to replace it with a thinner unit and design a horizontal slide mount for the TV that will allow watching the TV when the main cabin slide is closed.

Unfortunately, on this unit, there's not enough space for a commercial horizontal slide mount for the television.
