U shaped dinette into bed trouble

I have a 2016 308bhs, the issue I'm discovering is about the dinette... I'm not sure how the cushions should go to make into a bed. Any help would be appreciated.

It looks like the two back cushions go in the middle.

There is a gap in middle. Then when they are turned the other way the table top sticks out. And also the cushions are too thick.

For my Sabre, we just leave a little bit of table stick out.

Parallel to the window is correct so you don't have the gap. You're probably going to want to get an air mattress for the space anyway so you won't notice the difference in height/density (dinette cushions are a mattress only for people you really hate).

I have the same TT. I was one of the ones that was missing the cushion as well. If you call FR they will send you out a new one.

But I thought the gap that mine had was a little bigger than yours.

Though the cushions in mine fit perfectly for sleeping, I added a 2" memory foam topper. When deployed, I use a waterbed combo sheet that is made to the topper only. To stash, I leave the sheets on the topper, roll the topper, secure with a strap, and stash below the long dinette seat with the pillows and blanket. Less than 5 minute setup/teardown and comfortable. $.02
