1.) I dunno. But I did see a really sweet one in Freeport, ME a couple of weeks ago!

2.) The one I saw had a gaucho in front and a bedroom in the rear. Very nice layout IMO.

3.) Other than the layout itself, I really liked all the Vista windows this one had. Overall, it was in really nice shape and had a very cool and distinct personality.

Wish I had a picture of it to post .... sorry.

Very nice, that is the lay out our 74 has. We love it a well. Been out camping twice in the past month.

Installed a new furnace to replace the manual light one.

Our 73 has center twins, the rear bath is huge. it has the coolest water spout in the hath sink, sorta like a water fountain.

We have one!

Our is the more common rear bath. We love it! Well, except for the small beds... still trying to come up with a way to make a queen size.

Get a hunk of plywood, drop it between the twins, and shove the two mattresses together. Slide 'em back apart in the morning so you can get to the bathroom.

Yup, that is what we did for a long time in our Trade wind, Was rather comfy
I did run some strapping on the edges, the long way, so it would not damage the trim on the bed frames.

I have a plan to create some folding suupports that flip over to span the gap between the twins, sort of like a drawbridge. A sheet of plywood will go over that, and then foam cushions that make up the width of the walkway will sit on the very top. This will convert the twins into what I like to refer to as, "Superbed."

This will work until the little one is old enough to need the restroom at night, but by that time, I will have completed to the front dinette/Superbed2, so Superbed1 will only be needed when the family wants to lounge around on a rainy day or something.

That's the plan, anyway...

Oh man!

Ours is a double... I was thinking about maybe getting some heavy duty industrial drawer slides and setting up the front gaucho so it could be wider (as a bed). I think it could be at least 5' wide and still not block the entry door significantly. It would just be a huge overhang over the original base. I would probably need to fabricate some sort of feet to support it. I just want to be able to fold it back into its normal couch configuration during the day, and still have full use of the base cabinets.
