had similar problem on july 4th with pack and play being too big, so I cut a 12" board to fit between the dinette benches on the floor, secured it with removable pegs, and just put our sons kindergarten nap pad down with blancket cover. kept the 8 month old happy, and didnt take up any room. Only downfall is that DW calls it a "puppy pen".

We found a camping/travel size pack-n-play that fit perfectly in our dinette area (back when we had a pop-up, but I'm sure it would have also fit in the Outback). It was a smaller pack-n-play than the standard size - but still big enough for both our babies!

We had a similar issue a couple of years ago before we had the OB. We would collapse the dinnette table, move the seat cusions and put the pack and play accross, so it was supported by both benches. This could help you out in case it didn't fit between the benches on the floor.

We have a 23RS and we camped with 1 year old all summer. We have a queen bed in the front of the trailer. We took the mattress off of the front bed. We were able to fit a pack n play on the support for the mattress (which only took up half the space the queen bed took). We then put the baby's supplies next to the pack n play for quick diaper/clothing changes. This worked great as we would put the baby to bed with music playing and close the curtain. Once she was asleep we were able to move around the trailer freely without any problems. The only thing I would caution is the storage compartment under the bed is covered by a very thin, poorly supported piece of wood. I would place a piece of plywood over it to support any weight you would place on it.

We used a couple of pressure mounted baby gates turned sideways so that it mounted from the edge of the bunk bed to the ceiling. We didn't have an outback when we did that but will probably work with anything.

When the kids were little we took down the table of the dinette and slid the pack and play right in there. It worked like a charm! You lost your table for a bit but one can use the outdoor table if needed. Also the sink makes a great bath with no stooping over and trying to fit in the bathroom! Just don't leave the sink area as the counter is so high up!

The pack and play goes on top of the folded down dinette table, no issue. We even have room for the hound's bed to go next to it.
Also you can upgrade that Pack and Play mattress with a memory foam model off of Amazon for less than $40. My little guys sleeps
Much better on that than that hard board that comes with the PnP.

Wow, old thread!

I have a 10 month old and she sleeps in the packnplay positioned at the foot of our slide out king in our 250RS. It fits perfectly. Of course when it is cold she sleeps between us. ;)

Table down into a bed and pack and play on it. Covered all the sides with a blanket so it felt more secure for both our kids when we did this. Then made sure they were beyond tired before laying them down LOL.

We put a pack in play in the cargo area of our 28KRS. As a rule our kids don't sleep with us. Mom and Dad's bed is for Mom and Dad. I will leave it at that as I know that Co-Sleeping can be a touchy subject.

the problem is whatever you come up with now you may have to change in a few months when the baby starts walking!  We have an 18 month boy and when he was an infant the folded down dinette worked well with a baby fence, but once he started standing up and walking we are afraid he will walk right off the edge when he wakes up in the middle of the night.  We went back to a pack and play.  Not ideal but works for the task and we collapse it every morning.  In our old (and smaller) camper we put the pack and play up on the folded down dinette.  worked great, kept him in, and didn't take up extra room.
