Pedestal that drops down for bed setup

The unending build sheet again comes to you for guidance...! Is there a table pedestal that drops down so the bed can be set up without removing it? Floor to rail for table setup in a 17B is 13 3/4".

Yes, search for Springfield pedestal.

This is the one most people buy. I think we got it for about $280 if I remember right. This website has sales frequently.

Can you replace the two posts in a standard installation with one of these?

Yes, that's what we will be doing. You buy the pedestal and take it to Escape when you go for orientation and they will install it for you at no cost. No credit for the two normal posts you are not installing.

I wonder if the measurements are the same for the 21 and 17B.... so your understanding is that this can be dropped down to set up the bed?

I would think the height would be the same in all models but don't know for a fact. I just went down the basement and measured my Springfield (it's in a big pile of trailer junk destined to head for ETI) and it is 13 inches from floor to the top of the table mounting plate when fully collapsed.

Here is another long thread about table pedestals:

Are you planing on using the pedestal at the front or at the back? The pedestal itself is rather bulky and the 17B is narrower than a 19 or 21, so you'll have less room for feet.
We tried setting up the rear table as a bed and back to a table daily and now just leave it as a bed. If you decide you need a foam topper on the cushions ( and you probably will ) you have to figure out where to put it and the bedding when set up as a table. We've also got bins under the bed, and those would have to go somewhere.

Interesting, normally Overton's sells the silver version cheaper than the black version. Right now the black version is marked down so they are the same price. However they also have an additional 20% off and free shipping deal right now. It seems like the 20% off sale happens fairly often.

I don't know if this helps but here's our waiting to be installed Springfield pedestal in the up (27-7/8") and down (13") positions.

ETI is very familiar with these pedestals and should be able to answer your questions.

I've never had this sideways picture problem before. I tried a few times to make these post right side up but it's not working. I give up, here they are sideways.
