Makes it easier to store things on the floor when traveling too.
Hi, I wondering what type of table bases you have? are they as stable as the cone shaped bases? We our interested in a flush mount system for our 21 on order. Any pics? Thank, Kevin

FWIW I was in a new Bigfoot with the newer recessed/ flush floor table mounts and it was very loose and wobbly, the owner could not tighten it anymore.

When I looked into going recessed I was told I could not as I didn't have a raised floor like some folks are doing to the dinette areas of the 19's.

Hi Kevin,

Here's a photo taken off a Google search: http://https://www.google.com/search...xAdzKGFoVwg%3D Please know that we very rarely even take our table with us when we go camping, instead preferring to use the front dinette area as a place to lounge when reading (or on a very rare occasion, sip a glass of wine or drink a beer) . When we have used them, they are very secure.

Since the socket is much deeper than the thickness of the floor, there must be space under the floor for clearance. In some models the freshwater tank may extend far enough back to be in the way, and even if there is no tank I still wouldn't want the socket sticking out through the fiberglass shell (although I recall someone doing that as reported in FiberglassRV); the raised floor provides the needed space within the trailer shell.

This, is without a doubt, one of my favorite posts here on the forum.
