For those that have removed one of the couches, what was behind it? Finished just like the rest of the coach (floorcovering, wallcovering, molding) or was it unfinished area like you'd find under cabinets?

Yep! Had to remove the seat belts and replace with shorter bolts.

Alan; was that a, "Yep, it's all finished off just like the rest of the interior.", or, "Yep, wide open spaces...raw nothing."?

Bamaboy, I knew what I was talking about! 😃. It is finished top to bottom with wide open spaces.

ROFL, sorry. Actually it really opens up a lot space. It was held in place with four Phillips screws the I took out in less than 4 minutes with my Dewalt nut driver. Getting it out of the mh was a different story. There was not enough room to get out the door with the passenger seat in the way and I had some repairs I was dreading to make on the seat so I removed it. Repairs to that seat took me hours! The couch came on out with the help of the son and SIL. It worked great! We can now both sit in our own space and not fight over who HAD to sit on the couch!

back in school, they called me Mr. Uranium, 'cause I was so dense...

Are you guys sitting in chairs on unfinished flooring, or on the same carpet or vinyl that's in the rest of the salon?

It's all the same carpet. I did take and covered a 2 x 12 with a carpet remnant left in the MH because my slide is not level with the floor. One side of the recliner sits on that under the chair. Out of sight out of mind.


Thanks,

Alan

We did as others have shown; we took out the sofa and put in a cabinet. I got a "bar" counter top (no back splash, no basin cutout) and mounted it on top.

I got a 46" LED and a Mor-Ryde powered lift, cut out a section of the counter top to rise with the TV, and mounted it all to the back wall.

There were some details to iron out, but it worked out fine.

We donated the sofa to a shelter, hooked up to our Dish tuner, and rode off into the sunset. Or something like that.

Some of the new DSDP's come with that. My problem with it is that we have two cages (RV Kitty Kondos™) that hang over the windows for the cats to go out into so I really don't want to cover a window like that.
We did remove a hide a bed and put two La Z Boy recliners in, they are much more comfortable, but now the grandson has to use an air bed on the floor. Good thing he's 14 and doesn't like to go with us old people!!

Ours was finished just like the rest of the coach. I left the seatbelts in so they could be used with the recliners although no one has done that so far.
