Isn't the rear bath window an emergency exit on most AS TTs?

If so, it might also be important to be able to see where you are jumping out to!

Personally, I hope you never have to jump out!

re seeing traffic through BR window: That's a good point but we tow with the door closed and the shades pulled down.

If the emergency calls for jumping out that window-I'm thinkin' I wouldn't care what I'm jumping into!

A few photos:

Actually, the colors are a little off in the photos. The dinette cushions coordinate with the curtains better than it appears.

Wow you're fast! I had that up and down in no time and you had time reply! I had never put an image up on here before and it is quite an involved little process compared to other places.

But now it's memorialized for all time : )

Very nice! You did a great job on your drapes. The color is much better with the trailer than the original ones.

Thank you, LisaP!

I'm also planning to paint all the fake wood to lighten up the interior and I'm hoping it will make the oak a little less orange. I've also contemplated gel staining the oak but will try this first.

Saw this at Camping World, it was OK to sit on but the foam did not feel firm enough to hold up to a lot of use.

Interesting.. Have you thought of just recovering the existing sofa? I don't know what the cost difference would be. New vs recovered. The one in our trailer looks great and is very comfortable to sit on just outdated fabric.

I got an estimate of $500-600 to recover. My issue is, the thing is terribly small and uncomfortable. Now I want this #22!

Thanks for posting that! It is our AS, except I think the walls in the kitchen have a slightly different pattern.
Ours even had the TV when we bought it.
