I am interested in removing the upholstered panel under the sofa. Can anyone tell me how you did it?

If you lift the bottom of the sofa like you are going to make it into bed you should see two or three attachment points connected to the round bar under the seat. should be able to just unscrew those and panel is removed. shouldn't be more than 4-6 screws. Hope that makes sense.

That does make sense! Thank you for your response. I will try it as soon as we get ours out of storage!

On mine it's just 3 attachment places and 3 wing nuts. It's a great storage location and mine just swings up without raising the bottom cushion. I think the 1st owner put the wing nuts on and shortened that bottom panel so it just flips up.

Congrats on your new trailer. For now,wife and I keep a duffle bag on couch at night and bed during the day but I saw a mod that a guy did and he cut openings on side of table benches and installed cabinet doors for his clothes. I'm going to be doing this soon for extra storage.

In many campgrounds, I've seen a small tent erected behind our small hybrids. I often wondered who drew the small straw and had to sleep in the tent while others slept in the camper. I then met one of these families and presented this question. They laughed and said everyone sleeps in the camper and that the tent is used to store the clothes and other "stuff" they brought along that the family needed or kids "had to have".

I use my truck (supercab) for any "additionals" I don't want to clutter the camper with; the tent idea would also be good if the tow vehicle is too small to carry everything though.

X2.

During the day our bags of clothes are on the beds and we move them to the dinette benches or the couch. I love our 2013 X17Z ...my only negative feeling about it is that there is no closet space. But I know that you can't get everything in a smaller trailer.

Clothes Storage

Here's our solution (carried forward from our popup days). Needless to say, we didn't use the location for a TV.

We have a couple of over the door hangers that we hook onto the bathroom door. One inside the bathroom for hangers with shirts and a 3 hook decorative one on the outside of the door for dog leashes, flashlights, hats, raincoats, etc. The only problem was that the door is so thin that we had to use several felts pads to reduce the width of the hook to stay snug. The non hanging clothes go into small duffle bags that sit along the sides of the beds. Our trips are generally just the 2 of us and our dog, but our kids and grand-kids sometimes come with also so we've had a full house at times. But it's all good around the campfire.
