We ordered our 35x12 with the 2 "theater seating" chairs and removable free-standing dinette. We plan to remove/store the dinette and turn the space into a computer workstation for full-timing. Don't have the trailer yet... pick it up this Saturday (crosses fingers on decision!)

They use a very low density foam in the original cushions that is horribly uncomfortable. We considered installing a very high density foam but since we didn't like the layout anyway we bought these 2 Euro recliners that work quite well. The dinette was never going to be comfortable for lounging. It is a little snug-you have to be somewhat careful to be upright when swiveling so you don't hit the window-but it hasn't been a problem so far. Otherwise there is room to recline. I didn't mount them to the floor as I wanted to be able to relocate at least one of them for viewing the tv that mounts to the left. You can see I just use a 4 ft bungee to tie them to the table for travel. The table was rotated 90 degrees and lowered by 2 inches. It was way too tall even for the dinette. The table was very wobbly before and I was going to mount a latch on the wall to hold it steady but it seems to be better this direction so haven't done that yet.

Looks great! Cool idea for the chairs

I like this. When you removed the seating area was the carpet already there?

The carpet is there covering the entire floor. Didn't have to do anything with that. Other than rotating the table, the only mod I made was to the thin vertical trim strips on the front and rear corners of the slide out. They stopped at the top of the dinette seat back. I removed the wall colored trim from the front corner and cut it to length to extend the rear trim to the floor. New same size trim, about 3/4 in. wide, that matched the dark wood grain surrounding the slide out was then installed on the front corners from ceiling to floor. The only thing visible, and you have to look real close, are the few screw holes that attached the seats to the wall.

I would love to do something like this, but I don't want to give up the storage under the seats.
