Thank you! Yes, here's a link to the album with a couple of photos of the front bed. The bed is about the size of a double bed. It's perfect for one person ... might be a bit tight for two.

I love the rear dinette area. So much room and so bright. I tend to sit with my back to the kitchen divider (with a pillow). I can stretch out my legs and have a nice view out the back & sides. The table top is plenty big. Lots of room for iPads, laptops, etc.

When I'm solo the set-up is just about perfect. When I travel with my Mom, it also works great but taking down/putting up the dinette into a bed every night and morning can sometimes be a PITA. I'm looking for solutions to make it easier to put the table up & down.

did you do this, and if so, how did it work out? Would you post a picture? My husband wants to be able to remove the table and use the rear area for seating, (comfortably), then have the option to put up a table for dining/ using computer, etc. We are ordering a 21 due July, 2016 so have time to decide. Thanks

Here is mine, I can put the table in my tow vehicle and use the rear area like a divan, even sleep there or nap, great for watching tv back there while someone else sleeps up front.

Do you take the regular dinette table with you or skip it altogether? Would greatly appreciate it if you could measure one of your folding tables, size and height above the benches plywood top.

Will measure tomorrow, yes I take the table with me and leave it mounted and then if we desire, take it down and put it in the back seat or truck bed.

thank you, that's what I wanted to see. What did you ask ETI to do for you in regard to enlarging the seating in the dinette area and adding 2 (?) fold down table on either side?

I just asked for the "U" dinette with front to rear sliding table and 3 stooge tables (2 in rear and one on night stand) The cushions are the corner cushions place on 2x 1x4 pieces of lumber that I carry under the bed or the rear dinette, for the conversion, very simple.
Also you should specify, if getting the stooge table that the dinette opening under the cushion be made smaller so as not to hit the table when it is retracted.

Here's our u-shaped in the normal (front) area on the 19. While the idea of switching the dinette to the back was very intriguing, in the end we couldn't give up the queen sized bed. No regrets. None on keeping the table either.

We've since swapped out the two poles with a Springfield Marine 3 stage pedestal, as several others have.

Bob,
The tables are 9 x 18 and mounted 1" above the cushion. Also you need to check your hatch opening to see if it will clear the table once mounted. I had ETI cut mine smaller for that purpose.
