We have a 2018 KZ C201QB. It has a small slide-out which contains the jack knife sofa. This sofa doubles as the dinette when the heavy, bulky, too tall table is placed in front of it. Also the is not any thing to hold the arm cushions in place, i.e. wall or arm.

After some trial and error, my wife and I determined the sofa needs to be raised 3 inch to make more comfortable, as well stand up from the sitting position. I then designed a simple eye appealing wood arm rest.

[image]

I did not stop there. I designed a swing away tray tables for eating, laptop, writing, etc. When they are not needed, they can be swung out of the way or simply remove them and place them behind the sofa.

I do not see us using the table much any more.

You did a very nice job on that project. I'm really impressed how well you matched the wood tone colors. Nice work!
