Greg,

It looks great!!!

We never thought about relocating the sofa. It looks great and you still have room by the door for a storage unit with shelves for shoes.

Great job!

Thanks for the compliment. We almost did two recliners but I really like to lay on the couch when I watch TV ( or nap or whatever) so this was a good compromise. Thanks again for the pics you sent. I was ready to relocate the curb side battery box until I saw how it worked with your recliners.

Safe travels.

Couldn't resist

After much thinking we decided to keep the cabinet that previously held the Zip Dee chairs. We did not want to lose the table. Yesterday, I cut the cabinet/table width down. It is still wide enough for a laptop or to eat at. On the cabinet top I added a rail so keys, phones, etc. will not fall off (happened a lot when the trailer door was slammed). Inside the cabinet are shelves just wide enough to stack 4 shoes vertically. And last, I added a holder for an adult beverage . Now I want some vintage AS nameplates to screw to the wall to the left of the cabinet. They will cover the holes left from reducing the cabinet width. This project should last me for awhile.

Recliners for 25" Safari

I added two euro style recliners to our 08 25" Safari to replace the sleeper sofa. I have a bad back and could only take a few minutes on that sofa before I was very uncomfortable. It is only two of us traveling so we did not need the extra bed. I left the sofa end compartments in place for now for extra storage space. I may end up taking them out also but we will see how they work out. The chairs are very comfortable and fit the space well. We will look for a table to fit in between the recliners. My battery box is external on the hitch so this Mod was very easy to do.

Hello fellow Mississippian. Nice looking mod and you have a lot of room. Personally I think leaving the old armrests looks good and extra storage space is always good. I suspect LuckyDucks will be looking at this as his wife (Linda) wants something similar in their 25' Classic.

Safe travels

Thanks Roadtoaster,

My wife and I really like the Byhalia area and have contemplated retiring up there.
