Okay.. as some one that may or may not be RVing.. I have also dreamed! The thing that I thought of.. but never saw in a design.. and might totally be nonsense.. but was to have bunks to make more room.. like the old airstreams that folded down.. can be for bed but also can just be for storage. I also had a crazy idea of skipping the couch and having a futon with a sheep skin on top of it and a few, or 4 love sacs.. this way we could take the sheep skin out on to a camp site (sorry if you are vegan.. I understand.. just so warm!) and also have it underneath the bed sheet for extra warmth and comfort.. the Love sacs (better than bean bags) can be removed for seating outside too and moved around.. but not sure if there would be 4 or just 2. And the futon with pillows.. just seems more like an open space to play, sit in circles, etc. and have a small coffee table that is in a circle that can be used for dining, over in the area, and also taken outside, instead of a really formal table and chairs. I think what inspired me was my Moroccan friend (well LDS/Utah, but married to a Moroccan). She is so into simple living and visits her family a lot. She has one very large dish that is kind of like a platter but also looks deep like a bowl, they sit around, on floor pillows around small table, and spoon the food out of a few piles on one of these plates with bread! They wash the cookware and this one plate! I also find that the open space is less limiting for play, yoga.. hanging out and cuddling.. I can totally see how hanging cabinets would win me over, and also thinking that since one wall or side is without the pull out bed couch, that maybe that would be the place for a whole ton of cubbies with doors.. just plop a floor pillow on it's side and you have a back rest.. your feet are already out straight like they would be for an ottoman. Not like you are in danger of being lazy in an RV life! But the up and down from the floor is better. Also the whole "floor" layout is great for babies.. they don't bump, fall off, climb anything! They don't need a high chair, they just begin using the table to help them stand and as a play table at toddler age. When we got into Montessoir (which led to unschooling and Waldorf inspired more) I was excited to get a floor futon/play area and it has been a very versitale piece! I understand the play pen.. because of the steps out of the RV, but I loved, loved it, when Athena started crawling out of her naps! She would crawl out of the room (bam, bam, bam on the wood floor) and just be strectching and smiling hello! It was always large enough for me to cuddle with her before she went to sleep and we played on it all the time as a family with her (full size). Those things are just not recommended enough!
So I guess I was thinking that there would be no chairs, dinette or couch and the beds in the back would be either a queen with a twin bunk over the head, or two bunks on either side...
Oh and here is my house..
with all the pics because it was for sale.. is now sold.. still unsure about the RVing thing.. I think it is going to happen but I am not ready to go back to FOTR yet! My DH kind of pulled out and it is now a 8-9 month goal to be on the road and I think we are thinking of going on a Class B.. but maybe not even.. Thinking of also just getting a mini van, camping and finding little homes to rent along the way.. not sure. not sure.. ahh! I hope the divine just lands us in the right thing! Also.. it is Hawaii and I have never been or seen an RV up close.. been here ten years..
We have a really neat home. I wasn't sure I was going to love it... but without walls I am so aware of my kids.. they have tons of space to play and the light and air is everywhere! we also have a grand piano but that wasn't in any angles for the sale. You just can't see the family closet.. the coolest thing.. here it is.. not in it's glory because it is night time and my flash is out, but the best I can do..
put those together with the others... :)
