I have heard of people using Futons for this project. No building materials required and you can set them up in a few minutes--not to mention the covers come in array of styles and colors and since you assemble them, you can get them through the door easily. Check the forum for photos of other people who have done this. You may want to place some 'L' brackets for stability as traveling with any trailer causes things to shift on the interior....Good luck!

The only "problem" that immediately comes to mind is...where is your fresh water tank? Ours is under the bed by the kitchen. Depending on what you intend for the newly vacated space in the kitchen, this may or may not be an issue.

Ours is under our sink, so by using a Futon, this will allow us to have a less bulky sleep area. The old goucho was great in it's heyday, but has become tired and worn. We had re-uphostered it and then had to brace it, so we figure it is time for a change....
