No table option

My build sheet is due in a few weeks and I'm definitely going with the U-dinette. I am strongly considering a no table option than just purchasing a small classy table that I can use as necessary inside or out . This would eliminate the leg holders in the floor. Along with that thought I would also have the drop down tables on either side. There are only two of us and a dog. Has anyone gone this route or wish they had? Any thoughts on a cool folding table to enhance the interior look?

I also have a 19' on order with a U Shaped lounge/dinette in the back. Pick up is in Feb. I had debated back and forth about the table. My main request was to NOT have the table hardware screwed to the floor. I finally decided to keep the table and not have the hardware installed. I'm getting foldable legs for the table, so it can be used indoors if needed and also outdoors. I also ordered two flip up tables on each side of the U lounge, for when it's just us travelling with no kids and creates more floor space for the dogs!

We're getting a u-shaped dinette in our 21, as well as the two flip up tables at the wall ends. We're not getting the table installed, although it will be provided to us if we want to do so at a later date.

I know it's not fancy, but this is what I got from Amazon. I've already used it at home and at a holiday bazaar I vended at. It worked great and easily folded up and down. I tested it out with our couch at home, in an area the same as what we'll have in the trailer. There was still room to wiggle around the side of the tray so I could get up and down without putting it away.

However, we'll see later next month how it really works in The Trailer. If not, I'll search around for something else. I plan to use it when I want to do some crafting in The Trailer.

Hi, we just took delivery of a 21ft with U shape. We deleted the table for same reason you mentioned. Don't want two ant hills to stub my toes. Feel free to send alternative table layout for consideration. When you delete table, you get the table top to use as bedding support and all the hardware, 2 tubes, cones and slider that goes under table.

Just in case, later, you discover why some people have tables in their trailers.

Lagun Adjustable Swivelling Cockpit Table Mounting System

I'm thinking about using this table system and mounting it on the front passenger corner area of the U shape dinette. Maybe the table can also be used as additional counter space while cooking or preparing food. It can then swing back into the dinette for use while eating. Still pondering though as I have until July 2017.

Lifetime Kids Table with 4 Lime Chairs

The local Costco also has this table only (without chairs) and the table top is light weight. I am thinking about removing the legs and mounting it to the Lagun tabletop.

I don't know if you don't get a table at all - that's something that ETI could answer. You get a discount for not getting some items, but not everything.

I think most folks that aren't installing the table are still getting it and they're stashing it away somewhere (ours will go in the attic). Things happen and you might need to sell your trailer later on and the next person may want that table. That's especially important if you're getting custom countertops as the new owner may not be able to get a match if it's been discontinued.

We also ordered two filler boards to use when the dinette is converted to a bed. I figure one can be used while lounging as that back bench is rather narrow for my big butt, plus cats. One filler board gives you (and your cats or dogs) lots more room for lounging. Heck, someone could sleep there with just the one board, if need be.

We also have a 19' on order and considering the u-shaped dinette. Space and table configuration is a concern. We like the Springfield pedestal and configuration rbryan4 has implemented. Here are some pictures: SpringField Marine Pedestal - and a few more mods

It does require the pedestal be permanently mounted. I believe ETI will install it if you deliver it to them.
