You asked for it. Here is our "Blank Slate" rear lounge... or, in Bobbies case, "empty canvas." As you can see, it has already been stripped bare and awaits a new design and decor... one that doesn't clash with existing cabinets or the overall funky-but-cool remainder of our new used Lazy Daze. It's really a pretty big, unencumbered space, and we love the expansive wrap-around windows for light and view. It feels just like home :)).
The original swivel chairs are small, but adequately comfortable. I know there are some name-brand ergonomic Euro Style chairs that recline and mold to your body like a glove, but they are one to two thousand dollars. Not going to happen. I guess we'll go to a Lazy Boy showroom and see what they have. The last thing I want is for a couple of great big overstuffed chairs to swallow up the spacious feel of this very cool room.
The floor is a no-brainer. As recommended, we will throw down some laminate wood or faux tile and a plush area rug to keep our tootsies warm... something we can vacuum and shampoo, or even replace as needed. We will probably go ahead and buy enough flooring to do the whole RV; it makes good sense because we are often guilty of tracking in the outdoors and laminate flooring would be easier to clean, as suggested by a commenter. It would also create a better "flow" and help tie the front "original" to the rear remodeled lounge.
I have taken note that it would be nice to have more storage. I am thinking of how to build some into the rear lounge area without encroaching into the floor space too much... maybe a tall wrap-around space that only comes out from the wall about eight to 14 inches. Perhaps the top could be a book and magazine shelf. Or, I could just come out from a side wall that has external access a couple of feet and frame something in with doors on the inside. The top needs to have a purpose tho... I don't want to waste any space.
I liked Diana's remodel of her built in dinette in an Arctic Fox. Dinettes do waste a lot of room, I mean, how often do you need to sit four people at a table to eat? If you have company just go out side, or if the weather isn't good drag out some folding eating trays. So while it's not the first order of business, I would like to refashion the dinning area to something a little smaller and more functional. I'm trolling for ideas here... preferably some with photo links or attachments :)) I have yet to make much use of the Lazy Daze forum; I know we're not the first one's to have this "baby."

|These cracks do not go through... they are more superficial. Should I leave this alone? add more "gunk" sealer on top of it to be sure it stays waterproof? or remove it and go with ETERNABOND?|
