Couch in 23ss

We love our new 23ss! My only complaint is the uncomfortable couch. I know there are people out there with great ideas! I'm hoping someone has found a solution. We even tried watching TV in the evening with the couch folded down and using reading pillows. Oh well, we go camping to be outside! Sometimes it's nice to be able to enjoy a movie though.

in what way is it uncomfortable?
i'm 6' and though i can't lay down on it, i find mine quite comfortable sitting lengthwise with a pillow, against the wall. or with a footstool sitting normally.

Maybe it's just me then. I'll try the foot stool suggestion. At 5'4" maybe I'm too short. It just feels hard to me. Maybe it's the lack if an arm rest. I guess I am expecting the comfort of a "home" couch and that's not realistic. I thought it was worth a try. We LOVE our camper. It's fun adding things to make our own!

5' 4" welcome to the club! As you know there has never been a chair or a couch built to fit the frame of a 5' 4" individual.

The only blessing is we fit well in those cramp airline seats!

We had a ROO, and also found the couch very uncomfortable. The back and seat are at too straight an angle, almost 90 degrees and no way to have the back at more of an angle to the seat. Ended up setting sideways on it with a pillow behind me while leaninf agsinst the kitchen cabinets while watching TV.

That works when there is only one person trying to sit on the couch. I've started bringing one of our outdoor chairs at night to sit in to read. Still LOVE the trailer though and am always counting the days until our next trip!
