Default Simple Mod

X189FDS Fun Finder 2011. My wife and I love to watch movies when camping. She decided to remove the dinette, which was super small to begin with and replace with a reclining loveseat. We had to remove the shade, as it was in the way of reclining, and replace with a blackout rolling shade from Walmart as well. We purchased some small foldable computer tables from Walmart to set up for dinner. (Pictured near the window) When itís time to leave We simply slide the loveseat toward the front to retract the slide.
She sewed some curtains to help with early morning light that are held in place with spring rods. The side cornice boxes were removed as well.
And lastly we added a blackout rolling shade above the door above the cornice box to pull down to darken the trailer in the mornings

Looks great. We have thought of putting a loveseat in our slide also. How much does it weigh?

We put two swivel recliners in place of the booth in our last FF. It wasn't in a slide though. We liked them, but they were a little too big for the space.

Marti,
We absolutely love this loveseat. We got it from Amazon (link below) and it weighs 154lbs. It's a wallhugger, which means it fully reclines even though we have it up against the wall. We have taken the trailer out 5 more times since we may the mod and are truly happy with it.

Thumbs up

Looks great. We did something similar but with second hand theater seating in our RBS 233. You are right the dinette is not comfortable for anything but eating.Did not get the bonded leather, but hey I am a cheapskate. LOL.

Love the recliner! Great job taking out the booth. I've added it to our wish list. My husband is jealous I cannot figure out how to add one to my 189 FBR with no slides LOL maybe if I take out the bed....

You know Liz, if I get a FF 160, I am going to do exactly that, except it will have to be a sleeper sofa.

Does it have to be against the wall or can it have a gap between it and the wall? One thing I dislike about our booth is that the seats are either too short or the table is too tall. In any case, my shoulders are even with the table top. It would be great if I were a dog and could lap up the food on my plate, but it makes eating with silverware difficult. So we seldom eat there.

I like the dinette when i have company. But i was also thinking if making some special cushions for across the back, with pillows so i could turn it into a little sofa.
