    I took my ideas from Ray and modified the space in the slide out where the RV couch once was to make a living space that better fit my needs.

    Replaced the couch with a table I made using my *portable wood-shop; made a couple hanging racks to put with-in reach for storage and put in a comfortable chair where I can watch Ray’s YouTube videos…. :)

    I never was able to sit at a desk/table to work at for very long because of a long back and blown disk. My dinette is not exactly ergonomically designed either which doesn’t help the issue. (I’d say it is pure torture from hell to sit at for any longer time than how long it takes to eat a meal. but that would be a slight exaggeration.) My offices were always set-up with drafting height tables and stools rather than a desk and so was my home office. So, I bought a residential chair and a 24″ stool/chair to go with the 36″ high table. I’m able to work standing up on the trailer side at that height and am able to stand up straight.

    I’m making a rough guess but think in total weight I lost about 30%. That couch was one heavy piece of, of, of… furniture……….

    It’s been a big improvement for me and I’m happy with how it turned out

    I like that idea Kent. I also have a “nerve problem” from blown disc that has been repaired but they never actually fixed it completely. They only trimmed away the disc from the nerve but never did anything about the damage. Well actually they couldn’t believe that the damage was nerves that had the Sheath wore off. But anyway, I also have trouble sitting for any length of time unless the chair or seat is just right. That is why I still have my old “88 Chevy tonner. The seat fits.
