Yes, we would have to do such a thing as no way we would be without a curtain. In fact, we added our own to the standard (ours, which is actually a shower curtain, has a scene on it and we keep it closed much of the time). As said, it can also be used in place of the screen and that is convenient.

The bed being lengthwise in the trailer rather than at the end does make it a problem for the driver's side person if the door is opened and that also includes keeping out light if sleeping. We have no problem with the bed placement as long as there is a curtain, which makes a big difference.

There's the dimensional problem...

... but someone might still want this change just to get the bed in the rear. I assume that the dinette would have the seats facing forward and rearward; would anyone be able to get into the rear-facing seat in the front corner, between the corner of the bathroom and the dinette table?

Other than the wet bath liner, the interior is wood. As long as you don't change where stuff is that uses openings in the shell (refrigerator, water heater, furnace), you can re-arrange as desired. Even those appliances can be moved with fiberglass work. It would be interesting to see someone do something like this.

I am not seeing why it would make a difference on the driver's side. Why is that? I never thought of the light from the door opening. I can sleep with lights on or of, but any change of light needs to be gradual, or it does often wake me.

I have to ask- stripper pole?

We are seriously considering ordering an Escape to replace our current trailer. I know that Escape allows you to customize the trailer with set options, such as insulation or no insulation. But are you saying that they allow rearranging of the layout within reason? If so, I'm sold.

There are a lot of undesirables on this site, who take part in some risque stuff.

That's why I hang out here. LOL

Seriously though, it is the chrome support pole that sits on the galley counter, and lends support to the roof.

They do not allow much in the form of altering dimensions of layouts, more repurpousing of them, like changing a dinette to a permanent bed or vise versa.

The talk you are hearing in the last few posts is purely speculative.

The person is lying lengthwise and closer to the door than if at the end of the trailer so can be seen possibly right up to their head. And yes, the light can wake that person.
