, welcome to these wonderful and helpful forums. My original post was "where were you six years ago". I lament the non existence of the forums at that time.
, I promise to post some photos of my conversion tonight.
, I took out the "goucho" I think it is called, along the street side. Replaced it with a single 24" wide (or deep) seat facing the front of trailer, with hinged back in which to store my laptop. Added a table attached to the wall with the standard slider attachment, (see any rv store). Used Sliding arms from the old bed and built an entire slide out bed/couch on the front of the trailer. Just lift slightly and pull out. It is a full 48" and two can sleep there comfortably if you are not 7' tall.
The bedclothes I have are from Camping World and has the top sheet sewn to the fitted bottom. All I have to do is pull the top and bottom corners on the outside of the bed off and roll, yes roll them right up under the shelf (which i replaced and added an inch or so and put a nice edge on). Lift the seat back up, which is attached to the bottom by the upholstery, and slide the bed back into place. Voila! Couch.
A bit wordy, but hope it helps a little. If I didn't loose my drawing in my computer crash I will post those as well around 4 p.m. MST
