I have an 08 8317SS, which is similar but a bunk model. Have been very pleased with it.
Also removed booth as Bill has done. Carpet was good after removal. Bounced back up after booth had been removed in a few days. We left couch in and added 2 recliners. Also added swivel mount to TV. Helps a bunch with viewing angle. Hope you new owners enjoy your rigs as much as we have.
Agree with gofast on things we wish were better. Have hit my head more time than I can remember.....maybe that's why I can't remember. Your pic is great. Are those the squirrel deer I've been hearing about?
Bill...did you also switch your overhead lighting around? Looks like you switched the 2 lights in the slide out around. Nice mod. I concidered the same, but decided more sitting room was more important. We use coffee tables for eating in the coach.

The carpet was mashed down where dinette frame was and 4 legs of couch but I used a brush and brushed it and it is slowly returning to normal. I also switched the two lights. Simple mod but makes it very comfortable just for the two of us. I also removed the rear bunk. Did not remove the rear sofa. The front sofa blocked entrance to bedroom on one side.Only need one.
