We have not got to use ours yet, but I'm gone to make a few changes before we do, I don't like the thin plywood under the dinette seats, I'm gone to replace it with thicker plywood. I can't believe they put something that thin in there to start with.

Hello Hitch, our 184 also has the thin plywood below the cushions.
Jayco saves money and also saves weight by using the thinner weight.

Cross members are close enough under the cushions that a heavier board probably won't contribute to any better comfort or support. I would have liked for them to have cut a small access door under the dining seats so that we could have some access w/out lifting cushions/plywood. At least to put in or retrieve smaller items.

On the 22FB, we do have access doors on both sides. It makes getting things in and out easier unless they are big.

The access door under the dining seat is another thing I was thinking of doing, looks like it would be easy to do. I have a wood working shop so the door would be easy for me to build.
