Larry - the wooden cover came from Camping World. It has pads underneath that sit down over the top grill so it's nice and stable when traveling. If I'm going to use the stove I just set it on the counter and use it for a counter and cutting board.

Keager - We were #8 in line, we got a last minute email from ETI that they were changing the table to the pedestal model and which did we want (hinged or pedestal). We are glad we went with the pedestal. Nice and big, very sturdy, nothing attached to the wall. Slides. Actually sooo sturdy it takes the two of us to put it up and down which we are not planning to do very often (once in a while when the grandkids come along - they can't wait!)

Question Table Length

Do you have dimensions on the cushions for the U-table? My wife and I liked being able to stretch out on the back cushion.

That would explain why I have been seeing all pedestal tables in build pictures recently. We chose to get the hinged table for our 21' (May delivery). I like the floor not having the pedestal mounting cups. Our plan is that the table will be removed from the dinette area most of the time. We are getting extra cushions for U shaped and a filler piece to allow converting the dinette into a U shaped seating area with the table removed (inspiration from the front dinette of a 19' belonging to Jack and Nancy of Tucson). Think living room. If you can imagine it, Escape can build it.

How do you easily remove the table with the hinge attached?

A couple of screws and it comes off the wall. It is a very clever, and simple, mechanism for putting the table at two different heights. I first saw it a couple (?) of years ago in a post about a 19' with a dinette in the back in place of the bed. That installation used the hinged table. I was very happy to see it reappear in the 21' trailers. I like it better than the pedestal types. Something for everyone at Escape.

We opted for the hinged table in the front dinette of our 19. It is awesome - very stable and very easy to collapse to make the bed up. Not having the pedestal base leaves lots of room for our doggy's bed; or, when bed is set up, boxes etc slide under easily without the base in the way.

The only caution with this option is that the table is a little shorter than the standard one with the slider - there are only the two of us so a smaller table is not an issue.

You have to decide you may want this near the beginning of the build because they have to insert a wooden brace for the hinge mechanism in the fiberglass shell.

FWIW - One more thought on the standard pedestal table. We are packing for a short camp out. I'm still figuring out where to put things. Don't know how important it is to folks but the table being able to slide sideways really helps with access to the side and back cupboards (not to mention 'people' access).
