New Cabinets and Recliners

In our 2016 FC 28 we found the gaucho uncomfortable and the dinette too large and the storage there a pain to get into. As soon as we returned to our winter home in Arizona, we took the AS to RV Renovators in Mesa. They removed both built in seating areas, leaving space for 2 recliners and cabinets with a pullout table.

Nice quality. What will you use for chairs, the recliner?

Are the recliners secured during travel?

That looks fantastic and very comfortable. Have to keep that in mind as we/they are local.

We will get light-weight folding chairs to sit in at the table.
We haven't traveled yet, except from the RV Renovators shop to our spot in Gold Canyon. We don't expect to have to secure the recliners. We have had them in previous RVs and didn't need that precaution. In the AS the recliners are in the front and there is not usually much movement there.

Two Travelers. If you happen to stop by any 4 Corners Unit outings this winter we would love to say hello.

Thanksgiving weekend at Lake Pleasant and New Years st Picacho Peak.

Very nice cabinet work. How did this change the weight of the trailer?

This looks really nice and we want to make a similar change to our FC 25. We are going to be in Mesa next week and will reach out to RV Renovators. Our problem is that we are fully timing and can't give up our sleeping space for the time required for the work. Need to figure something out...

Well done, Dave

These are the counter seats we picked up. About $50 each at TJMax. They have a few different styles, adjustable height and swivel.

Recliners and weight

We haven't weighed the truck and RV since we bought them in June. We will have that done next week at North Ranch Escapees Park in Congress, AZ, next week. We won't know for sure, but feel we might be lighter now. The old goucho and dinette seem like they might weigh more than the new chairs and cabinets.
What we will know for sure is if we are under or overweight now.
