Help with dinette layout

We have gone over the edge! We are striping the walls in our 73 globetrotter- I will post pictures and suggestions later. (steep learning curve)

We took out the front slide out couch. We want to make that area into a dinette - that becomes a large bed. Any suggestions?
The interior is 88inches wide and we have about 57inches to work with.

I am going to sew the cushions and my husband can fabricate the frame. (he is a welder/blacksmith).

We did the same albeit in our '64 GlobeTrotter - there are some pics on our website showing how.

Awesome

Thanks for the great ideas! That really helps. How thick is your foam? Is it comfortable to sleep on?

The seats are 4" the backs are 2" because the table top when in the lower position is higher than the platform for the seat. It is pretty comfortable, however we rarely use it - mostly just for my young nephew who could sleep anywhere.

At our '56 Safari dinette, we made it differently and the table top is the same height as the seat platform so all the foam is 4". I don't have a website page set-up for our '56 Safari dinette, but you can see it in our "It's a Girl!!!" thread....I will be posting more pictures there soon as we finish up the cabinets this weekend.
