We didn't need to move the furnace. There is enough space if you keep the recliner on an angle. When I built the new top over the furnace for the remaining couch(see pic) I took a small angle cut off the corner to make it fit better and so both recliners could recline. Our recliners do not swivel. I am not sure if your 25FB has the furnace in a different space but you can see where ours is under that new top.

Same complaints regarding the dinette and the long sofa that seemed out of place. Attached are photos of what we did and so far..... we love it!

Remodel of 2017 27ft. FB Flying Cloud

We did all the work ourselves using most of what was already there. We purchased a few materials, but we were able to reconstruct the bed using the pull out to expand the sofa into a bed. The counter works well for eating as well as for computer work while on the road. We took one of the night stands from the bedroom and used it at the end of the sofa. Are having a new nightstand built now to replace the one in the bedroom.

Hope that helps!

Kspan that helps some. Did you get rid of the subwoofer?

I REALLY like this. When I show this to Mrs. Too Tall she is going to want some changes.

We disconnected it but saved it... just capped off the wires and bundled them. It is all open storage under the sofa so we can replace the sub-woofer if we want at any time.

Problem with dinettes is that one needs a big Class A for them to "work". Just not enough space.

Great solution!!

Very creative and nice work. And thanks for the explanation. A few more questions. So the base for the new sofa is from the area of the new table top? Did you have to get new cushions made?

Again, very well done!

Here is the link to all our changes. We did this as we are now full timing. Added another 200w to the roof (400w now) since this remodel.

Hans,

Yes, the sofa is made of 3/4" plywood cut from a pattern we used from the bench seating along the wall where the new counter top is now located. The new sofa is long enough to accommodate the slide out bed that was along the bench wall as well. We used the original cushions which fit perfectly and saved a lot of money.

We made the counter top of 3/4" plywood and laminated it ourselves.

Hi

Our answer was to give up on those arrangements and get a different model

Essentially none of the seating made us happy. We spent a *lot* of time trying to force it to work. Move this, change that, rebuild something here. It all seemed to be to much of a compromise between working as a bed and working as a chair. To be a good mattress it needed to be shaped one way. To make a good chair cushion it needed to be shaped another way. Indeed the recliners are wonderful as chairs. You loose the bed function with them. That was fine with us. It might not be fine with everybody.

Bob
