I'm interested in doing the same thing - the actual room you have to work with on the 31'er is somewhat limited by both the compound curve of the body and the fact that "antique" - (vintage) - units are narrower than more modern trailers.

I would suspect that to make a J-lounge it would take considerable more sewing time to get the pillows/backs/bed dropdown to fit properly.

Please post your thoughts, as I am in the process of going back together with the '78 Sovereign.

How does a J-Lounge differ from a sofa bed?

j-lounge

The j-lounge I was looking at had a regular bed that pulled out and a larger j with storage. If I knew what I was doing I could post the photo but I can't figure it out. New and Reconditioned RV Parts & Accessories - RV Surplus It's under rv furniture j-lounge.
