I've used it on a couple of trips now and like the change. Seating is very comfortable, like a nice cushy chair at home. The downside is that you are looking at the galley, not so much out the windows. I understood that compromise when I started, but a lot of time is only spent inside with bad weather or after dark, so it seemed the right trade off. A surprise was the gain in floor space, the tiny bit between the two seats. This was buried under the plinth before. It turns out to be quite valuable as it lets one person pass another much more easily in the pullman style plans that all campers have.

Beautiful work! Love the rear dinette floor plan myself.

Thanks for the encouraging words!

The rear dinette would be spectacular if there were a way to have a side entrance. You could then mimic the Bigfoot 5th wheel floor plan, the best ever in a small RV. But a true slide in camper is stuck with the pullman arrangement. I've drawn up the plans for a flatbed camper (actually a Texas welder bed) that would do this, won't happen in my lifetime unless there's another pandemic, then maybe I'll have the time.

Nicely done. Do you have any sort of table space for a computer or for eating?

That's the swing away table yet to be fabricated. As is, it is inconvenient even to set your teacup down. I'm going to build a broken arm swinging table that will stow in the space between the seats, and be able to swing into position for either seat including the chase lounge position. Something like the Lagun, but with a longer swinging arm. When stowed in the middle, it'll be like a side table for both seats.

I would not survive without decent table space, at least enough so that both my wife and I could use our 17" laptops. It did not make sense how a 10.4 camper could have such a cramped dinette. I checked the floor plan and it only took an instant to see the issue. It is that massive dry bath. I am very glad I went for the wet bath and a much longer U shaped dinette. Of course there is a downside. After the showers it takes an extra minute to squeegee dry the walls and floor.
