I'd eat in the recliner or at the desk. I think there might be room for 3 people this way. Would need to use a TV tray and/or get some collapsible chairs.

Reace, how about technical specs... what axles and tire sizes will be used? Staying with a 2" coupler? Top-of-ball coupling height? I realize some details will not be set yet.

For the dinette area, the benches do play a role in adding strength to the shell, so captains chairs are not an option we can entertain. Sorry... but there are some very comfortable lounge chairs available for sitting outside under the awning!

Here are a few things that are set with regards to the chassis set up at this point...

Axles will be 3000 lb capacity torflex axles
2" coupler
2x4 tubular frame construction.
14" tires

Ah yes, one of the main reasons we head out with our Escapes, to get outside and enjoy!

How about office chair style recliners that bolt onto the benches? Some type of back support makes a world of difference.

There is a discussion of "Comfy Reading Seating..." at the Casita Travel Trailer Forum (Don't know if you have to join to view, but it is worth joining anyway & they seem to tolerate me as an Escape owner.)

One of the solutions that is expensive, but interesting is the West Marine High-Back Go Anywhere Seat. Like any marine item it is a bit over priced, but it sure looks like it would be comfortable sitting in place of the bottom cushion in my 17!.

The Go anywhere seat is a very interesting idea. I'm wondering how well it would fit at the dinette.

I'm assuming that with the hinged dinette, the table can be folded and pushed against the wall, leaving a space between the two bench seats. Is that correct?
