We also considered doing that before we bought, for the same reason: why would a family
of 5 possibly want 4 bathrooms? We also thought of installing folding tables for homeschooling in 2 or 3 of the cabins. Actually, we quickly found out that:
- our kids
prefer to do their school
work together around the big table, the cockpit
table or even, when there's not too much sun, the forward cockpit
- they enjoy the privacy of having their own in-suite bathroom
- there's so much storage on the L440 that we don't need to use some bathrooms as extra storing areas, except maybe during crossings. Even folding bikes fit in the outside lockers
- now and then, for a few weeks, our two youngest decide to sleep together and turn the vacant cabin
into a common playroom.
For movies, it's easy to install a flat screen
TV (up to about 36 inches) on a folding arm above the escape hatch
, in one of the aft cabins.
