My is an '81, and looks similar to yours, Dan, in shape. But it stll is a pain getting out for a big guy like me. While I am redoing the coach, maybe I'll try to re-configure the doghouse to give some more room.

No it is the original shape. When I got rid of the carpeting I attached to wood directly to the metal cover on the sides and the floor part and the top surface panel is removable. It may look smaller than the shaggy carpet but the wood is 3/4" thick so I doubt it is any smaller.

I did think about trying to rework it a bit but with the diesel the cross over pipe from the turbo to the intake manifold sticks up in the middle of the cover. I might gain a little here and there but not in the areas that would do any good. I finally just gave up and decided to live with it.

I just looked at the picture again and I didn't have the seat belts back in yet. That is probably why it looks like there is more room.

I pivot the seat around and then step off. On our 92 LY the seat can rotate around so you can be facing toward the back of the coach.
