Fishyhead, Can I ask why you are pulling out your 3-way?

Hi Boonie - weight reduction and redistribution, a more efficient layout (for me), and portability.  I'm converting my camper to a "side-dinette" setup so I'm putting the Engel up front on the passenger side.  I'm also switching the big 20# propane tank out for a smaller and lighter 5# cylinder since most of my trips are short and in warmer climates so I don't need the furnace.  I also wanted to be able to take the fridge out of the camper and use it in the back yard, etc.

 

Like bimmeryota, I'll use the old space for a closet/storage since I'll be losing the little pantry on the other side to store the porta-pottie.

Fishyhead,

 

Like Frstnfit it sounds like you have it thought out and are making your camper work for you.

Please post up some pics of your conversion to dinette. Did you have the rollover couch and now converting? Any plans for that back? I’m looking for a shorter couch back for my eagle for an idea I’ve got. If you want to sell it let me know. Although the shipping may be pricey...

Hi @bimmeryota - yes my camper came with a rollover couch with the back.  I don't have plans to use it but it's probably 6' long so shipping will definitely be an issue!
