17B, Goodbye Front Dinnette, Hello Couch, Bunk and Rubbermaid Storage

Well, we bought the 17B because our Trillium 4500 worked so well for the 4 of us, but the 17B with the front dinnette and closet did not. I had to make repairs to the floor in the Trillium that meant leaving the space under the couch open which was perfect for Rubbermaid containers. Every trip in the 17B had me thinking about the changes I had to make. This trailer had such a poor use of space. When we go camping, we always pack up in Rubbermaid containers days prior, keeps us organized during our trip, and we can unload the trailer when we get home in minutes.
The last pic was a cot bunk idea that is mocked up, but not complete, I think my kids have outgrown that idea, besides, junior likes to sleep in his tent, or the truck.

Good idea.
I like the Rubbermaid in and out thing as well.
Good work.
