Not certain how to ask that question
Just got my '73 Overlander with center bed. I am planning to replace the upholstry (probably foam too) and focusing on the side gaucho first - where I will be sleeping! How many of you use the gaucho as seating? I was thinking to just side it open and leave it configured as the double bed. Functional? Not? The walkway to the rear bath will obviously be a bit limited, but is that really a problem? And, is there a problem towing with it in the extended/deployed position? I wanted to decide this before doing the re-upholstry. If I leave it configured as a bed, heck, I'll just get a mattress topper and comforter -forget about the upholstry!
I'm sure this is a personal preference, but I don't *yet* see how the side gaucho makes efficient seating ....
