I recently acquired a Howda seat from free cycle. I was very lucky as they retail for about $75, sold thru mail order by a Newburyport MA company. It makes the dinette seating so much more comfortable.

If I have to code and debug long period of time I wouldn't do it directly on a laptop. A bigger TV/Monitor to use as secondary/extended display, wireless keyboard and mouse to allow my hands and shoulder to hang at the right height. Problem of laptop is that the display is too low for me when the keyboard is comfortable for my wrists. Plus a table of adjustable height, seating with good lumbar support and armrests. I can sit there and type for hours. Not that I should.

Sorry but I don't have a workspace setup in the trailer. My old office has an ergo chair which I used for 10+ years. I don't know the model but it is stinking heavy. The one Vermilye uses could work for you but it's difficult to tell. Comfort is quite a subjective matter.

Just to throw some ideas, you could leave the table uninstalled, that will give you floor space for a regular office chair to pair with a small adjustable table. Small table can be used for dining as well. As long as you won't need the dinette to convert to bed setup during the trip.

Oh one more thing about the trailer bench seat is that there is no legroom under the seat itself. It may not be problem for most but it's a bit restrictive for me. Hence I am inclined to think that no matter how I replace the cushions, it won't be comfortable for long period of use. Your need could be different, though.

Excellent point... that will be a problem... I'm going to have to give that some thought. Thanks for pointing that out.

Just jumping on the end here as I expect to have the same issue but with our 21'. Where do I find out more about the pneumatic tube for the table?
