I think we are going to like it! The pictures are kind of dark because the trailer cover is on.

That would definitely be a solution. I attached the oak trim rail just above the belt line with epoxy. There is a depression at the connection between the two body halves. The trim looker better a little higher and fits better. I ground the gelcoat off in a couple of spots so the epoxy could grab the FG better.
I built the false floor today from some white oak. There will be a 1" foam insulation board and one layer of Reflectix under it. The chairs were slightly higher than the couch and this will allow my wife's feet to touch floor better.

The factory uses that seam area for attaching the lower cabinets on the other side. Maybe you could use the same process. Pull off the trim lock that's on the outside seam, notch a recess like they do to countersink the head, drill out a few holes along the seam, run some s/s wood screws in to grab the oak wall strip. You could still use adhesive to make it even stronger. Then replace the trim lock which I believes just slips tightly over the outer seam. That one oak plank anchored with screws along the wall could give you an inside base for attaching other things to as well. Just an idea that may get your creative juices flowing. ;-)

This is your project but looking over the layout I was curious if you had considered maybe attaching a flip up table mounted to the wall. A trim piece of oak could be run horizontally along the FG seam then attach the table to it by way of a piano hinge. There may not be enough room between the seats for a decent width table as the photos can be deceiving but it would eliminate the need to find storage for a table & pole. Just a thought I had while perusing your images. Can't wait to see what you come up with. I'm sure it will be awesome. Those swivel chairs look comfortable.


I am doing the trim piece as well as covering the lower wall with reflective insulation and 1/4 oak ply. I will also add an electrical outlet. I considered the piano hinge but I will be attaching the trim with glue because I don't know if the wall is thick enough that high up for screws. The floor hold screws great but it is thicker.

Yes they will swivel all the way around. It does seem more specious. I am still engineering on the table. Stay tuned

I like it Charlie! Will the swivel chairs be able to turn out straight so they could be used to watch TV as well? I think this is a good idea. It will be nice to have a place to sit and enjoy meals with a great big window to look out of. Plus it appears it take up less floor space adding more interior room. Whats your plan for the table?
