Big-Foot, that is awesome! Thank you! I think that's the route we're going to go. Would love to get a triple in there.

Did you attach it to the floor?

Thanks...
The only way to get a triple in our unit would have been to toss the dinette out.
We did not anchor it. The slide it sits in is carpeted and the feet of the unit dig right into the carpet. You would have a very hard time trying to slide the seating anywhere.

I need to do something about the seat bottoms of the dinette in my unit. They are uncomfortable, especially if you try to seat three people on it. The middle person gets a bar on their butt. When converted into a bed it's not any better. There's posts from guys that have changed out the foam for improved comfort, but if I'm going to change the foam I think the fabric is going to get changed also.

If I were going to keep my dinette I'd do the same thing. The kids are more pliable than the adults. They sleep/sit on the foam without issues. My wife and I however can't stand sitting on that material. I would take just the cushions to an upholstery shop to see what the options were. I can't image it being too expensive to get done. They might just say there isn't much they can do with the limited thickness and lack of suspension under the padding material. Like you would find on a regular piece of furniture.
