Does anyone have plans for making something like this? We probably only have room for a queen size, but need plans. Thanks!

Thanks for posting this project. Beautiful work!
We have a 92, 29' Excella Classic. Our front interior includes battery boxes like you have, plus our Converter, and Solar related Inverter, etc. A PO turned the Gaucho sideways and built an enclosed bench across the front. All of this takes up a lot of room and has absolutely zero comfort value. We've looked at several front end options, including a dinette setup. We're really struggling with deciding what would offer the most practicality and comfort. So, we're earnestly searching for a solution.

I posted our dinette upgrade story with drawings, starting at post 420 here. Kudos go to Zeppellium for the original concept. PDF of the plan is in post 463 -- closer in size to your queen.

Great job Chatski.

Here's the link to the main thread, rather than trying to get fancy and land you on the right post within the thread. Obviously, you'll have to go forward to get to posts 420 and 463.

If that doesn't work, try copy/paste of this: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f109...ion-88673.html

Hope it's helpful!

John

Thought I'd post some pics for your viewing pleasure but it looks like I can't upload photos from my computer, they have to be on the web somewhere?!? Do I have that wrong? It's asking for the url.
