Cockpit area uses?

Just upgraded from a class C to an A, and we are looking forward to being able to use the cockpit area as living space when parked.

No more knocking myself out forgetting to duck getting in and out of the driver seat!!

In our A, the seats rotate, so that will be a big plus. Wanted to get a feel if there are any tricks, tips or suggestions for maximizing this new space in our RV.

I use a steering wheel table.

Wheeltoppers Inc - Wheeltopper Steering Wheel Table - Tables - Camping World

Cover it with a table cloth. Have pictures, a candle, and remotes setting on it.

That hides the cockpit area, making it look more like living space. And, of course, swivel the chairs.

X2... we really like ours and carry a small lamp which sits atop it. The steering wheel does need to be able to adjust to a near horizontal position though and I'm not sure if all do that.

Good luck...

Cockpit space

My wife sewed up a cover for the dash board. When the gang, (kids and their kids) are with us they each have everything is individual plastic tubs, and they are piled up on the dash after we close the shades.
After they are all up from a night's sleep all of the pillows and the blankets are folded and placed there also. On the passenger side we have one extra seat behind the co-pilot. They both turn into one another and it makes into a nice soft bed for a little critter. (until they grow).

If the seats are power, and you rotate them for extra living area seating; be aware that you can rip the wiring off if you rotate the seats more than 270 degrees. Always check the wires before returning the seats to the travel possission.

I got a plywood table round at a remodeling store, than added a flip down "leg". I never use it as a table, but put it on when stopped so the cats don't trigger the air horns at 3:00 am like they did once!!
