Thanks, I appreciate the response. In my previous RV life, I did two van conversions, and at least one “remodel”, and for a bed- to-sitting conversion, I used a system of slats, held together in a cloth suspension. (I stole the idea from IKEA). When not in use, it rolled up into an easily stowed round unit, and was very simple to deploy -just roll it out.
I am pondering similar, but want to preserve the area for foam bedding thickness. Perhaps if I can find suitable light weight C-channel, I’ll mount it under the bed lip – out of sight – and then, when I need the full bed, slide the slat system into the channel, and add the cushions as such. We purchased the couch cushions option, and it looks like they will be sufficient to bridge the gap, with additional latex topper foam to match the twin bed set up.
Geeze – It is amusing – some of us spend big bucks on the ultimate Travel Trailer RV and quickly set out modifying and “improving” It might be an undiagnosed disease.

Earlier this year I posted about our twin bed conversion. It has worked well but is still under development. I don’t have the measurements off the top of my head but can post them when I pull the trailer over next week. I have three pieces of 3/4” plywood that span the space between the twin beds. I cut a lip on each end so they “lock” into place. We have 2 pieces of 6” foam that go on top of the plywood and are level with the mattresses. The plywood stores under the mattresses when not in use. The issue is where to store the foam when not in use. We’ve put them under the pillows and in the cab of the truck. I did some measuring when we were out in June and I think these pieces of foam could serve as the back cushion of the dinette. The bottom cushion would not sit on top of them but would be in front. The back would be 2” thicker than what is there now. One of our projects next week is to have a local upholsterer over to discuss this. It would mean replacing the dinette cushions and would be a clean solution if it works. More to follow…. Mike

Hi Kathy and Andy,
we are generally interested in an Oliver Trailer. After some research I saw your ad. Is the trailer still for sale?
We are living in Colorado, how would it be possible to see the trailer, saw you’re living in Maryland?
Here is my e-mail for further information: firstname.lastname@example.org
