Cushion Storage

Hello!


We currently own a 2015 FC 27FB and took a look this weekend at potentially upgrading to a 2020 GT 27FB with 2 AC units (current trailer only has 1). Love the style/look of the London Gray with the Elm. The potential issue I see is with the cushion storage for the dinette and lounge beds. Unlike the Flying Cloud, which uses the seat back cushions for the expanded sleeping, the GT has separate cushions. At the dealer, these were in the wardrobe cabinet, but they take up the entire cabinet, so I am thinking this can't be Airstream's design - I must be missing something and there has to be a place to put them. Otherwise, what do people do to store them when not in use and yet you have clothes in the wardrobe? Hoping the design is not as dumb as it seems.



Thanks,
Scott

I put the 2 dinette cushions at the foot of the street side twin bed. Nice snug perfect fit. I do not bring the other 2 cushions for the pull-out because I need all the wardrobe storage and don't plan on 6 people needing a place to sleep.

Thanks. We have a soon-to-be teenage daughter and a 9 yo boy, so they 'need' separate beds.



Wondering if anyone has tried to remove the curved back wood boxed and cushion and ordered the seat back cushions from the Flying Cloud but in the GT fabric? Seems crazy to do on a new $100k trailer, but it also seems crazy to have cushions with no good place to put them.

Like Pickles we store the dinette cushions at the foot of the street side twin bed but we use the lounge cushions as backrests at the dinette table - the DW and I are “vertically challenged” and need something behind us.

Your mileage may vary

Cushion storage

We have a queen bed. We only occasionally have additional guests, but mostly carry the cushions. I usually put two of the cushions under the bed and two in the wardrobe. If you really work it you can fit one on the wall by the refrigerator and then there is a ledge that with other storage items to hold it in place, it will stay there. This works for us, but like I said, this isn’t an everyday thing. If we were to have to do it every night, I think I would make under the bed work for all 4 cushions.

We do the same, 2 under the queen, 2 in the closet. Not ideal but we love the corner back cushions, so we live with it!

Sadly, it IS Airstreams poor thought process that ends up with their solution taking up a tremendous amount of the already limited storage space.

I had a new “tri-fold” cushion made that fits precisely into the overhead locker. It unfolds to perfectly cover the dinette table, which is kept about 4” higher than its fully lowered position for the new cushions to be level with the bench cushions.

Drawback... obviously it is meaningfully thinner than the original cushions.

Airstream should develop an air “mattress” to fit the tabletop precisely. It would take up almost no space, and with a simple foot pump would only take two minutes to inflate/ deflate. That could be the kids chore!
