Question Horseshoe sofa/dinette

I have a 2013 214WSD Funfinder with the horseshoe sofa/dinette, I want to remove the uncomfortable sofa/dinette & replace with jack knife sofa. Does anyone know what's behind the back of the sofa/dinette? I don't want to have to do a bunch of remolding when I take the sofa out
Thanks

No issues removing it on our 2012. I took the entire dinette out and replaced it with two chairs with ottomans. Kept the original table top but changed out the posts for adjustable legs - The table can now be used inside or out. There were a few screw holes, but I found some small plastic caps at Home Depot that work great for covering/hiding them. If you keep the overhead light you'll need to do something with the wire that runs along the forward slide wall - I used some surface wire channel to cover it in ours. As you can see in the last picture, I also removed the side "boxes" on the window blinds. This made things look and feel much more open.


I don't have any of the finished project, but if you'd like I can take some tomorrow and upload them.

In the mean time, here a few pics from the removal:

I removed one of the jack knife sofas in my XT245 (to replace it with chairs as SWFL FlyFisher did). I found that the original folding sofa mounting brackets in the FunFinder are bolted in to captive nuts in the wall.

The walls on the XT245 have studs in place to stiffen the mounting points. I don't know if the 214WSD has similar construction. If your sofa mounts to the wall instead of the floor, I'd recommend using a stud finder to lay out the structure before tackling this. And, since the loads are fairly high, it would be wise to reinforce the wall around the mounts with a stiffener plate that spreads the wall load down to the floor.

(As an aside, two of the captive nuts in my wall had come loose from their bracket and removing the sofa was a chore but that's a story for another campfire.)

Hi I like what you did on removal on your table setting what does your finish product look like thinking on doing the same on our fun finder trailer.

As promised:


View from the entry doorway


View from in front of the refrigerator


Table Legs (they fold up allowing the table to be easily moved or stored and they're adjustable so it can be used with different chairs inside or out)


Cover for overhead light wires and the baseboard molding I installed

We're very pleased with the way the project turned out.
