We have just got our Devon Monte Carlo with a rear lounge which converts into a double bed.
Now we could leave the bed down a lot of the time, but our reason for choosig it was that we wanted the rear lounging area. However, when it's a lounge there seems to be loads of cushions with no real place to go. I assumed they'd all pack into the side panel, but no - we seem to have to put a couple over the cab, one in the wardrobe ad then there's another one for the front single bed which doesn't have a home.
We could really do with those spaces. Am I missing something about where to put all the cushions? What do others do in panel van conversions?
Only just seen your post sorry and so hope you have found a solution. In our Sundowner we only have 2 spare cushions. These stack on top of the loo when we are travelling. We often have the van with just one of the beds made up, then the 1 spare cushion is used as additional comfort for leaning on.
The only thing we thought was - are all the cushions necessary?

I shall be leaving the cushion for the single bed behind. If anyone from my family fancies trying to catch up with us and stay, they'll have to bring this cushion out with them!
Still, that leaves me with two which currently reside over the cab area, and we definitely need them for the double bed. I think my best option is to make some sort of strap to hang them outside the cupboard at the back. The cupoard contains 2 of the cushions already. If only it had been made just a bit bigger all 4 could have fitted in there.
The van comes out of storage this week, ready for our trip starting at the weekend. I will have a good old play with where to put those pesky cushions.
Lesleykh, I realise this probably won't help much from what you say, but we tried making our bedtime pillows perform a dual role, acting as daytime cushions with the pillowcases removed. This allows us to avoid packing cushions inside cupboards.
