to pgustaf249: Wifie & I have a 2005 CH 231xl sd and yes, the sofa-2-bed will do fine without using the slideout while one is drivin. Also, u can use the dinette table area as a single bed while cruisin. But, this being our third RV, we've only done this once. You must check each state jurisdiction to determine when the use of the passenger's seating restraint systems are not mandatory. In Georgia, every passenger is required to be restrained while the vehicle is being driven on public highways, or the driver will get the ticket if its passenger is found not restrained. Sorry about this... just couldn't help myself... but I enjoy long trips away from my law office!
