Springfield Pedestal

Hello,

I am replacing the two standard table legs with a Springfield Pedestal. I have seen several models referenced.
What model and size Springfield Pedestal Works in the 19í?

Thanks,

Virgil

I had planned on using this pedestal in the traditional bench seat setup and not the U-shaped dinette. Is the size still the same as the U-shape.

I donít think the dinette configuration matters. What matters is that the pedestal can go low enough if you need to convert to a bed. Many here have gotten them from Overtonís with 20% discount codes, but I canít find it on their site any longer. Llebroc seems to have the best price:

Springfield pedestal

Question from the uninformed on this issue:
We are working on our build for a 17B and plan to use the rear dinette in usually bed mode but may occasionally want to use the bigger table.
So, what are advantages of the Springfield pedestal? I can see it might be nice not to have the 2 table legs to store, but what else? I feel as though I am missing some points here because I never heard of this prior to joining this forum.

Thanks for your thoughts,
Catherine

easy to push up or down go from bed to table and spins when loosened so easier to get in and out when used in conjunction with a slide. More foot room. Thing i don't like is you can't remove the table easily if you want to.

One thing to consider is that the Springfield pedestal will remain in place when the table is made up as a bed. I have four containers that slide under the bed. Not sure they would be easily accommodated with the pedestal in place.

The primary advantage of the Springfield, as others have noted, is that itís *much* faster and easier to go from table to bed, or vice versa. The hinged table mount that they used to offer was equally fast, albeit less attractive. The default legs are a pain to switch if you have to do it often, plus they tend to be wobbly. And as you noted, you have to store them somewhere. But, having a fairly unobstructed space under your bed affords more storage than you would have with a Springfield. Although, if youíre going back and forth between table and bed often, you need another place to store that stuff anyway, else you wonít have room under the table for your feet.

I don't think it's much quicker. With the poles you just give it a yank upward, stow the poles and place the table. The Springfield doesn't really save time there. To me the advantage is a much more stable table than the wobbly sockets, one pole centered instead of two that take up more leg space, and the number one advantage of all - the table rotates. The ability to rotate as well as slide is a big win over the stock setup.
