Default Walk-around Bed

I am almost done with my walk-around bed modification on my 2589. It had a jack knife type couch/bed that I never really liked, but my wife wants the functionality of turn it back into the seating couch position as the original!! She did not want a full time bed. Oh boy!! I sure had my work cut out for me!! So after racking my brain on how to accomplish this and finally finishing it, we went camping last month and it was so great not having to climb/jump over her to get out of bed!! I just need to do a little bit of beautifying, lol, to finalize my project. I will post photos soon.

I agree the crack in the sleeper couch is not comfortable to sleep on. Can't wait to see your pictures of your walk around bed.

I would also like to see pictures of the modification for the bed. I am not very handy, but interested in how it can be done.

The jack knife sofa/sleeper in our 2307 Classic was pretty uncomfortable when we got it - in addition to the joint between the back & bottom, the bottom cushion had been replaced with high density foam but the back was original, so the bottom was very firm and the back very soft.

We replaced the foam on the backrest with foam of similar density, then had a full width 2" thick "topper" made of the same stuff with a cover made of automotive seat upholstery fabric. The person in back still has to crawl over the one in front to get out (usually not a problem - wife's a very sound sleeper who rarely wakes up during the night), and the bed's super comfortable. Since it's only the two of us, we leave the bed made up full time.
