Found a narrow table to fit in between the recliners that match's our cherry cabinets perfectly. Found a candelstick small lamp and velcroed it to the table with no probs after 7,000 mile trip this summer. We've had several comments pertaining to the homey feel. The recliners are safety tethered with the original seat belts that was for the sofa! I'll try and take some pics next week. Thanks again Joe for the inspiration and the shove to get started!
Hi Muffin! We had looked at another Monaco that had two sofas and was planning to do the same thing you did, but then we found this one that already had the chairs on one side. Looking forward to seeing your pics!

Our Endeavor is a 1997 so it had a "low mount" .... the Quasar is now living in a recycling center. We opted for installing a new Radio/Cd and gaining some storage.

Well I didn't have the room behind the sofa to do what you did, but I was able to get rid of the headbanger and relocate my tv to mid-coach.

RVBUNZ, I altered the overhead 13" TV cabinet somewhat like yours but I put in a solid piece of oak (relieved along the top back edge). Our '89 Foretravel has the slanted windshield, the cabinet doors on each side of the old opening swing up to reveal the DVD player on one side and the DirecTV box on the other. We wanted a larger, 32" LED TV up front so I mounted two aluminum rods on the back of the set, bolted a piece of 1.5X1.5x.125 aluminum angle on the top so it would hook over the relieved board. When we are traveling the TV lays on the bed.
Headbanger is gone, no problems with vibration, no problem with having to alter anything overhead-thru the ceiling. A ceiling swingup would have been nice but headroom was a consideration. When we are home I just disconnect the umbilicals and carry the TV into the house and into my office. Works great!! (no pics now as coach is stored 17 miles away)

Nice!

Great job! Looking at a lot of DP's - I have come to the belief that coach space designers are lazy or stupid for putting the TV over the dash. Some newer models are moving them to better locations but come on... they must never have rented a class A and watched TV at night in one. Just bad design IMO.

Great job everyone. I also decided to upgrade our TV and decided to use the original factory position above the barrel chair (because we wanted to keep the cabinet space and avoid any legal issues with the TV on while driving). Removed the 19" LCD and moved to bedroom (removed tube TV). Installed a 32" 12 volt TV on a locking swing bracket. Also installed a sound bar and this past weekend added a BluRay DVD player (still need to work on better cord management however need a larger diameter cord keeper).

The attached pictures show the stored/locked position, swung out for viewing while parked or driving and the modified bracket to allow the unit to swing out and stay level (using factory wall mount). Hope that this might help someone.

Hmmmm. Where is my measuring tape? I just may have to see if that will work for us when the grandkids are with us--especially for those #$%@% video games.

Nice!

Nitehawk, I was going to put some oak trim along the back, but we have decided that we are going to have a powered MCD Day/Night shade installed at the windshield. That will cover my back seam.

Iangolf,
Looks good and practical. I sit in my recliner where your tv is so I had to go mid-coach.
