Converter in 31UL
We are getting really close to pulling the trigger and buying a motorhome. Our choices are the 31UL, the 35S and maybe one other that we will look at tomorrow (used). We started this adventure when we saw the layout of the 31UL, but that lead to more looking and confusion. We really like the 35, but aren't keen on the length. The biggest drawback to the 31 is the bed size. We currently have a short queen and my husband is 6'2.
Here's my converter question. We were thinking we could add a piece of plywood about 5" deep to the end of the bed platform on a piano hinge. We could then pull the mattress and put some foam or cushions at the top of the bed thus making the mattress longer. However, my husband saw that the converter is under the bed, and being that he's an electrician, he's concerned about the heat if it's covered that much. Seems to think it's a bad place for the converter. Has anyone had any problems with it over heating. Any input would be great. We are going to look again tomorrow.
