Small kids bunk over the driver and passenger seats. Lowers for access, I would like to take it out and save the weight since it will never be used.

Seems like a lot of folks don't like carpet in their rv.

Carpet... I would like to have vinyl flooring.

Old upholstery - in process of doing something about that now.

It sounds like an ideal storage space for larger thin items, especially if you take out the mattress. They are typically pretty worthless anyway. I have custom cut Reflectix for all of my windows, including the driver and passenger side windows. Your kiddie bunk would work well for storing them.

The mattress is a air mattress that goes on top of the "floor" of the bunk. When raised it only has about an inch of space. Other wise it would be good for storage.

On demand Girard water heater. They don't work and use more energy and water. Give me a 10 gallon gas/electric unit anyday.

If I remember right from our recent tour of one, all the nifty little storage areas are blocked off when the bed is up also, only accessible when it's down?

I disagree with this one. IMHO the CB is a good thing. Leave it on all the time with the squelch turned up. Just helped us yesterday. Headed South from DFW towards Austin, heard the truckers talking about a bad truck wreck about 50 miles ahead of us with the interstate shut down. 15 mile back up. Got off the road and checked the maps, found a good (and very pretty) back road way around the whole thing. Everybody else headed straight for that mess while we headed away from it. DANCE!!! Have one in the Rubicon too for talking to others in the back country off roading. Ability to communicate and get local information is a good thing.

Your correct, when the "bed" is accessible you can't get to the storage areas and if I took out the "bed" I would lose the storage.

I didn't look that closely, but I thought removing the bed would remove the 'cover' that closed off the storage area, and that the storage areas were actually in the cap?

We decided not to buy one (or any new one actually) we still like our current one, but I had thought the bed slightly 'thin' and only useful for children.

Could be wrong ... (about the storage areas...)

They thrive on the challenge and the independance and being required to improvise and innovate. Was the same for their mom. Was the same for me.
Just the way we grew up, I guess.

just wandering with the bad things that are happening with children, if it is safe to allow them to sleep in a tent without an adult. campgrounds are usually safe but there can also be undesirables.

Over night guest! The constant worry that non rvers will turn on, switch off, or flush the wrong thing leaving me with a problem.

Oh, and another question-did everyone really like floral patterns on everything in 1995?
