2012 Grey Wolf 25bh Dinette/Bed

Has anyone else had issue with the dinette bed? I have two. The table when folded down does not match up with the bench height. It is recessed about 1". That's an easy fix, and I understand the manufacturer and dealer may be aware of the issue. Mine just fell through the cracks
The second issue I am having is with the cushion positioning once the bed is "flat." No matter how you configure the cushions they just don't fit. The two back support cusihons are curved not rectangular, so a straight edge match doesn't seem possible. When you try to "make it work" they seem very crammed in there and even buckle. If i leave one out it's too big a void. Any help is appreciated. have you had the same problem??

I think I can help. I had the same problem with our 28bh. We couldn't figure out cushions either. Forest River included a cushion that does not match your decor and is just covered in white vinyl. That along with the 2 end cushions fill cover the tabletop completely. Ours was in drawer of the entertainment center. Look around our ask your dealer. Funny thing was we found that first. And just put it aside, when we couldn't figure the cushion configuration we forgot all about it. As far as the 1 inch gap, we have that too. I was just going to add a strip of plywood or redo the support with something sturdier like 2x4

Thanks! By far the best explanation I have gotten to date. I now find out our "spare bed" is missing, so further explains why nothing made sense. I figured out the repair for the rails, but I like your 2x4 suggestion better. With your information, the dealer is now better prepared to help us, and we are taking it back to them after the long weekend. I see you are an Upstater. So am I. Perhaps our paths will cross. I'm headed to Watkins Glen this long weekend Happy camping!

We'll be heading to Ithaca for the next 10 days. We have a few trips to Watkins glen on the agenda too. We like the Seneca wine trail and the fireworks over the lake. Glad I could help. Enjoy your weekend.

tydingssharon - how do you like your main bed? I'm a bit concerned about the dual nature of it - I'd like my primary bed to be comfortable since it will be the one I'm in!

I find it to be very comfortable. Keeping in mind it's actually a "fold out sofa" you never really feel like it is. Has a whole different feel than a jack knife sofa. The "mattress" is very firm in my opinion. A full size fitted sheet is just a bit snug on it but I make it work. A queen is a bit sloppy. I was looking for a lot of living space in a trailer, and I like the fact that someone is not in my bedroom when I have guests come in. Overall I am very pleased.

Another one!! I thought I was the only one in the world!! As a solution I will level the table and fulfill the bench on the cover to have a perfect flat bed. Because Im far away from you, I will ask an specialist to fabricate a cushion to match!
