thanks guys, I don't know why Jayco can't see the need for this dividing panel. It can be a bit wider too for more of a visual break. I was originally going to do it in tempered textured glass, but was too much money to justify. The beauty is this panel can simply slide out if I need to. It's just a shelf from Home Depot cut to the proper height and held in place with 2 pieces of aluminum channel (which holds the shelf panel snug). And the table infront of that sofa, to me is a no brainer. Total cost for all parts, under $50.
Hey Jayco! have your designers use this as a starting point and offer it future models of the 184BH - as std. or an available interior option. I would have paid for this upgrade in a heartbeat.
