Removing Bunks and building Queen Bed in Surveyor SV261T
We've had our 2004 Surveyor SV361T for right at a year now, I've found most of the little quirks and pretty much settled on my likes and dislikes. My major dislike is the "hybrid" function, the canvas pop out makes heating and cooling the camper a nightmare and the queen bed just plain sucks. We've had one person sleep on one of the bunk beds in the back and he said it was terrible. I'm seriously thinking about taking the bunk beds out and building a base for a queen mattress with storage under it and a couple of wardrobe closets on each side of the bed and some other storage in that area. I can imagine some would say I should just trade in for a different model camper, truth is I pretty much like everything about this camper except the pop out bed, it fits our family just fine, tows great, and the best part is it's paid for...
I don't' really want another payment right now and I figured I can do the bedroom conversion for about $400-$500. I will have more storage and still be able to sleep all the people I would ever have the need to. I have one daughter and if she ever has friends camping with us there will still be the dinette, couch, and the queen pop out bed, if necessary. Any thoughts, ideas, etc before I finish talking myself into it?
