Yep, I can see how that would let you stretch your legs out which is impossible when the corners are filled up with the curvy cushions. It might be worth considering a custom made cushion to go across the whole wall.

Needing to land

We have been living in our 2300 now for 7+ months. What an adventure... Camphosting in TX and the wilderness of NM . We have LEARNED so much!!! Probably have made every newbie mistake at least once... Adjusted many things, many times... Creativity, flexibility and humor... The keys to successful long term RVing. Now where would we put an inverter ... Since we do more boondocking. We are headed east to OK to help family, then home to our little house in MO for a while. Our renters decided to move to Arkansas. However, after meeting quite a few full-timers at our campground, we realized that few were entirely happy. HAVING A 'landing' place is good for us. We won't have much furniture, except our camp chairs and appliances and some things in storage... LOL We will see how long we can manage to stay put in the suburbs. Our next trip will be east to New England (where I am from) for an extended time... We know we now qualify for lots of volunteer (with reimbursement) jobs with the ACE, BLM, NFS or NPS. So that's cool. The 2300 has been great and our Jeep toad has been awesome!

janekeffer, I'm so glad to know that you're enjoying your 2300. You're right about having a landing place. During our 3+ month trip, we took two breaks to stay with friends for a bit and even though we hate to see a trip end, it is always nice to arrive at home too.

Our 2300 has been idle since we returned home in March, but I have been working on some mods. The biggest one is a 200 watt solar installation along with some additional 12 volt and 110 volt outlets. We'll be on the road again in a few weeks on our way to Maine.

I understand your concern in finding a place for an inverter. The planning stage was the most difficult with the solar install because it is so hard to find places for all the equipment in a small rig like the 2300.

The project is mostly done except for learning the ins and outs of the charge controller and trimetric monitor. I just took some pictures of everything and hope to post about it soon.

Yikes! How do you do it? I'm in a 32 foot and I don't want anyone else in with me! But then a dude named Mike Wendland does it in a Class B....

Great thread and very interested in all the mods. We installed recliners from Sam's Club in place of the dinette and it made so much of a difference in confront.

I'm more agreeing with you. My wife and I plus a dog in a 35' 5er ~~ it gets crowded after about 3 months. Returning to 3000 sq ft of sticks & bricks for a couple weeks is enough for hitch itch to set in and be ready for the road for a week or month or two again. Wondering if 42' will help prolong the time away.
