48 years old. She looks pretty good. That is quite a fancy dash. I see some peeling 48 year old self stick wallpaper but nothing crazy bad. Good find and have fun. The redo is all part of the journey.

From the photos it looks like your dinette table might be broken. Before you fix it, measure how long your sleeping area will be when the table is down... in our rig it is pretty short, kids only. If you have the opportunity, you might give some thought to replacing the table with a wider one, and moving one of the bench seats back (if you have room) so that an adult can use the bed. Of course, the cushions would also need some adjustment unless you fill in with pillows or you dont mind hanging your feet over the edge.

Yeah we are replacing the dinette. Hadn’t thought about the sleeping length.( primarily it’s a couples coach) but I will look into it’s length and access if it needs to be adjusted. Thanks for the insight

Boon K,

Found this dinette plan a while back.. Still a little short for some sleepers but might give you some ideas..

Monterey Dinette...

Way off topic, so I posted what I did in another topic for members to see.
