Changes to 2003 Safari SS

Now that we have had our current trailer for a few years, it is time to start making some changes to make it more "ours". I wonder if anyone has removed the front sofa (the one that turns into a bed) in a Six sleeper and replaced it with two chairs and a small table between them.

Since it is only going to be my wife and I most of the time, we thought it would be more comfortable to have a couple of chairs rather than the sofa.

Any thoughts, pictures, pros/cons would be appreciated.

Second Request

Not sure what happened to this post, but I didn't get any replies. This is most unlike this group. Any one got any ideas if this possible/feasible.

Thanks a bunch

Moho captains chairs?

I'd think this would be entirely possible. You'd probably have to redo some floor covering up front. Best thought -- we need to get some moho owners to tell you what is best for anchorage. I know I've seen DIY-ers who've done this

Big bump in the evening here folks!

Removing the couch on a Safari 25 SS

I'm in the process of doing exactly what you are planning. I've always found the couch too narrow.
At this writing, I've got the couch out (4 screws), removed the doorside armrest, and removed the cover over the converter...all easy tasks.

I've temporarily placed two old chairs and a table in my "new living space". It looks great so far. The next step is to find the chairs most suitable. I recommend you check out The Chesterfield Shop's website. I think you'll find "exactly" what you want there.

With these changes, I think your (and my) safari will be the "perfect" trailer.

I've seen it done a few times, looks neat too.

Personally, I love our couch and also having the dinette, even with their shortcomings, it's an RV that I don't fulltime in, so any mods I'd make to our SS would be either cosmetic or mechanical.

Hi Malcolm,

Sorry to be late in responding, I had this thread confused with another Safari modification thread that I had already posted to. If you are interested this post shows a modification to the front of the Airstream in a Safari. I think it is really cool when people start personalizing their coaches. Good Luck and hope you get lots of ideas and tips.

Sounds like a great idea. Two recliners would be much nicer for sitting in for any length of time. You just have to fasten them to the floor so they can't move when you are on the road.
