It's about a 3 minute change from bed to table for us.(I timed it!!) We have been doing this for 2 years now and only because we have the Travasak and it rolls up nicely and goes on passenger side storage under the table. The pillows stay at the other end. The fact that the 17 has the table attaching to the wall makes it easy to do this--we only have to deal with a pole on the front table..


We now keep the front dinette into a couch--the pole fits under the storage benches there...and I have another modified sleeping bag made into a smaller travasak for when we both sleep on opposite ends... Also fits under the benches. Again I can't believe the storage in these trailers (and I bring a lot of stuff)

It seems to really open the trailer up--we have the option of tables at both ends with the windows and we sit at whatever end the view is the best.

For years we kept the bed made up fulltime (and in our Boler) with a foam topper and just doing this two years ago has made me not want a larger trailer.. (it wouldn't fit in our yard anyway!!)

No place to store stuff, so all I can do is open cupboards, prop up cushions, toss sleeping bags.
Got the heater running at the moment and the Maxxfan slightly open to get rid of any humidity.

Congratulations on finishing the build sheet. Looks good! Good luck on moving up too. You'll have a lot more time to enjoy your new trailer!

LOL @ Glenn..
Yeah, mine looks a little different too for the winter.
But on a normal camping time--big pillows go at other end--travasak gets rolled up and stuffed under seat and table goes up (and the room darkening blinds get taken down and stuffed away too)

I am a PITA organizer (ask anyone I work with!!!)

Speaking of Travasak, even though Camping World no longer carries Travasak, seems Lance has resurrected it under the Lance "exclusive" Bed-Maid System ()

When we heard about the Travasak, we were very interested in it, but disappointed to find out they no longer made it. Watched the video of the Bed-Maid system and it looks interesting. But when I google where to find it, I'm getting nothing. Even if I go to the Lance web site, don't see an option for ordering one. Am I missing something?
