Flexsteel Jack-knife Sofa Vs. Original Gaucho
Our new-to-us, used 2007 came with a Flexsteel Jack-Knife sofa mounted across the front of the Airstream just as the original gaucho was mounted in yours.
The original gauchos in our two 1976 Airstreams made very comfortable, full-size beds with their big, overstuffed, futon-style mattresses.
The sofa in our 2007 is much more stylish, but very uncomfortable to sleep on.
I would try to regain the original look and feel of the gaucho that came with your Airstream. If you can purchase the original frame for $30, do it. What about the drawer front and plastic bins that go beneath?
When it comes time to by a mattress, a high quality futon in the correct size might be the answer.
