you correct that when it works out it is fun. here are two that have worked therefore are fun!

added fire place to divider wall (don't have a finished pic after painting frame black)
wired power management on board but is still portable

The sofa folds down so the Murphy bed can come down. To fold it down, you lift the front of the seat cushions and pull them up and towards you. The back cushions then come towards you and lay flat. When it's done, the seat cushions are back at their same height, but now stick out from the sofa about a foot, and the back cushions are now flat with the seat cushions.

When you lift the front of the seat cushions, you can get under them into the pass through area.

I'm sad to report that we went to pick up the 2504 today and the rear outside panel was starting to de-laminate. The dealership tried getting us to sign for it and then pursue Forest River for a warranted repair. I'm not going to accept one that isn't right. Anyone in the market, keep an eye on the rear ladder supports, three different units we looked at today, the right side lower ladder supports were installed crooked. Pulling the wall surface out once the screws were tightened. The search goes on...

Went back to a different dealership today and looked at a 2702ws. The family loved it. They gave us a pretty good deal. We're going to go and pick it up on Thursday (pending final inspection). Thanks again for all of your help. I'll keep you all posted.
