Swift 184BH Mods

So my wife and I greed that we didn't like the look of the sofa blending in with the dinette. We decided to add a divider separating the dinette from the sofa sitting area. Decorated with tea light candle sconces and some pillows. I like it much better. We also added a curtain to the bunks for added privacy. And we added a small table in front of the sofa for sodas and the tv converter etc. Just a few touches we think Jayco should have thought about while on the assembly line.

Nice work. Looks a lot more comfortable.

No wonder I was more comfortable, I guess I was laying down

What did you do with the dinette table?

Sorry about the photos, don't know how to turn them. The dinette is still as it was. The sofa is squeezed in between the dinette and the bunks.

I like it. It gives the interior a clean, finished look.

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.

I love the dividing panel idea! My 5 year old sleeps on the bench, and it would be nice to have a little separation between her feet and our heads on the dinette bed. Even better that it is removable. We may have to look into doing something like this. Where did you find the shelf for the divider?
