Default Eat around dinette?

Does anyone know how to arrange the cushions to make the dinette a bed? Is there a way in which they fit snuggly and fill in all of the space?

I tried every way and I can't figure it out on my 210 UDS.

Default Not a great bed

We have a 210UDS. We never use the dinette for a bed, but we have checked it out to see how it works. The cushions don't fully extend the full width of the "bed." As I'm sure you've figured out, you remove the legs and place the table top on the seat supports (curved side toward the kitchen, obviously), making sure it's flat and evenly supported by both sides of the seat structure. Then you take the back cushion from the middle of the booth and lay it down on the table top along side the corresponding seat cushion. It won't go the full width; it will be several inches short. There are no tricks anyone has shown us; you just have to accept that it's a narrow bed (and certainly a firm one!). In my opinion it would work fine for a reasonably small child, but I wouldn't feel good about inviting an adult, let alone 2, to sleep there. I suppose if I really had the need, I'd find or make a narrow cushion/foam piece to fill the gap so the "mattress" went the full width, then I'd get some kind of mattress topper to make it somewhat acceptable as a bed. As is, I think anyone weighing much more than a helium balloon would wake up very sore.

If anyone has a better solution, I'd like to hear about it myself, although I can't see us ever using the dinette for a bed.

By the way, be careful pulling the table top off the legs. We had an unpleasant experience doing so this weekend. I had previously made sure the legs were well wedged into the floor and table brackets so we had as stable a table as possible. When we went to pull the table top off the legs, the table top did, in fact, come off. But it came off the plywood piece it's stapled onto, leaving the plywood still firmly attached to the legs (with many sharp staple points sticking in the air!). Oops. That's my project this week: remove the staples, drill (carefully!) a lot of holes, and screw the plywood to the table top. That sucker is never coming off again unless I want it to!

It doesn't fit in any configuration. We just bring up the bottom cushion and leave a gap between it and the side wall.

Don't let these minor issues dissuade you. After being through many camper brands, I assure you that the Fun Finder is the least worst of the lot.

I am super happy with mine.
