I have the gaucho in my 64. We reupholstered it with some really high end foam, so it feels great - though a little too firm for my wife at night. I also pulled the stops out of the extensions, and added some flip down leg supports, so it pulls an extra 8" out away from the front. That keeps my wife from sleeping in the area next to the shelf. We just stuffed a body pillow up there, so it also is a little warmer on that side for her since she's farther from the catalytic heater.

I look at camping as a way to reconnect more than just watching tv in another place. We do have a tv that swivels out into the living room area, so we can all sit on the couch, but I tend to really want to put my feet up. Maybe if i finish my legomatic chairs that will work out.

If I had my druthers though, I think I would go for the dinette. We're not very big people, and I'd love to be able to play cards.

Dump the Dinette, You will never miss it. Unless you have young children, then it's a totally different story.

Dysfunctional Veteran- does not always play well with others. 22 a day is 22 TOO MANY. (this number recently revised to 23 a day )
