Reace told me no. Sigh. Doesn't mean YOU can't build it. Kerfs in plywood to keep the backend from getting "floppy."

Still dreaming... although my u-shape dinette (and NO table) extra filler board and cushion is CLOSE.

I think we will do the 'Donna' design. No big table, add 2 flip up ones. Add an insert to extend the back seat, so in a pinch someone could sleep there. Also, will try to get a thicker foam in the upholstery ..we are on the bigger side with old backs. The more support the better! I have seen some fold up aluminum tables that we might fit if I ever need inside work space. But come to think of it once I retire in 2015 I ain't going to work no more. LOL

Cathy, my thinking was to start "small," move to BIG if necessary. The extra cost for the "filler board" (which is the same Formica as the counter) and the extra cushion (maybe $100) was worth it TO ME. Got the two stooge tables (and EXTRA walls enforced) and if I figured out this wasn't the layout for me... I'd drag the table and poles from under my daugher's bed (got everything I needed for the front-to-back sliding table from ETI) But I HAD to try. So far, like 11 nights, I love it. I'm also a single traveler if that makes a difference.....

Several have opted to not have the table installed, and instead have two flip up extension counters put in. Some have then devised other means to support the table without the installed pedestal receptacles, which allows them to have more of a living room fell without the table or pedestal mounts in place. Note that with the u-shape dinette the table isn't as large and slides front to back rather than side to side.

Hi Donna,
Did you ever try the high back chairs JohnV and I used in our 17 front dinettes?
If we went with the U dinette in our 21 I was going to try and include them... I still might get around to it one day.

No Paul, I didn't. I'm going to make a bunch of coordinating fluffy pillows and try that first. I love the upholstery in TF, but need to break it up a bit and I think pillows will help.

Unfortunately for others, it appears that we got the West Marine chairs while the getting was good. Your link is dead, and I've searched their site & can no longer find the chair.
