Our plan when we buy our C is to have the entertainment center. We saw one model that had some storage on either side of the TV. Norma – we also are child free, but both have lots of siblings. So we ended up with 22 nieces/nephews ranging from 3 years old to 36 years old and 3 greats. We’ve taken many of them camping over the years, but I really want the entertainment center. I guess visitors will have to be happy with kitchen booth pullout bed or a tent. LOL
Well, Karen, I ended up pulling that beast of a TV (27″ CRT) and the entertainment center out. It has made me o-so-happy. Tons more storage, lots more light inside, an extra bed IF I ever need it, lol…
The storage on either side of that monstrous TV was limited and so far back, it was pretty much useless to me.
It does make a huge difference in the light inside, but also was a great source of cold coming in that front window without the entertainment center to block it. Next step, thermal curtains for that area! 🙂
