Why isn't gaucho up against the wall?

Well, we are getting there.

Mark wants to keep the frames of the couch and gaucho and revamp them somehow. Question is Why are the booth seats pulled away from the exterior walls? condensation? but I haven't seen it in our camper. Could we inset curtians into vistaview windows (doing away with the curtain rails) and butt the back of the gaucho seat right up to the wall. even attach the cushions directly to the wall around the curved corner section? Maybe just use the seat part of the gaucho and attach all back cusions directly to wall? Kinda like that one that was used by a radio station remember????

THANKS a bunch! OBX Deb

I think the gauchos and sofas were (and still are) installed a bit away from the wall so that one does not end up with one's head in the curtains.

Having replaced our gaucho in our '92 with one from a '99, I have seen them both ways. Our '92 was not attached to the curved corner in the front of the trailer.

However the '99 that we put in was. It had ears that stuck out and had screw holes. I screwed it in to the wall.

We are removing the curtain rails for the Vista view windows and hagint the rods set into the window frames on the two sides. That would take care of the head issue, but the question of butting the cushions right up to the wall (permanent) is still there.
