Springfield Table Pedestal

For those in Canada who are interested in the Springfield 3 Stage Table Pedestal (Model 1660230), I can clarify the cost. I purchased the table pedestal from Llebroc Industries at a cost of U.S. $283. ($373.73 Can). Shipping was $48.69 U.S. ($64.30 Can) and UPS charged GST of $21.44 Can and a Broker Fee of $66.35 Can. Total cost to get the pedestal was $525.82. Service was good and my only complaint is the exorbitant Broker Fee charged by UPS which is why I don't usually buy products from the U.S.

I live in Washington, (103 miles from Chilliwack), and should have the exact same on my door any day from LeBrac also, with Fed Ex shipping. $283 US total. ETI will install at orientation.

We are getting a 5.0TA.

Is this the correct Springfield for the 5.0TA?

Seemingly there are a few different sizes. The goal would be to have it as a table and a bed.

We would sure like to purchase the correct size..... in that it would be a real bummer to show up with the wrong one.

Yes... we are going black.... but my question is the size.

Thank you.

I am getting the new Escape 19' Trailer and I know that the pedestal will work with the table for the 4 person dinette - which converts to a double bed. I believe that the Springfield Pedestal should fit any size table that you have.

So, the Springfield pedestal drops to the proper height for converting the table to a bed? That sounds very interesting after watching the video showing the stock table mounts being removed and put back on! Might want to consider that for the 19 I have on order. Thanks!

There are many threads here on the Springfield pedestal Carl. I find it much better than the stock sockets and poles. But, there is another table mounting system you may want to consider as well, the Lagun. Instead of mounting permanently to the floor, a bracket is mounted on the front of the dinette bench. The table base consists of a vertical piece and an arm, and attaches to the vertical mount. This allows you to pivot the table all the way over to one side or the other, and also to rotate the table top, but with nothing on the floor to interfere with the limited footroom. Another advantage is that it is easily removed and stored, and now you have a lounge when a table is not needed.

Although I do like my Springfield, If I were deciding today on a table mount, I'd probably go with the Lagun, particularly with a U-shaped dinette.

One other thing to consider: if you are NOT having the dinette raised on your 19 (ours is raised for a better view), then the mounting screws for the table sockets can protrude through the bottom of the shell. You don't want those holes, even if they are sealed properly. Have Escape not mount the table sockets at all if you intend to change the stock arrangement. That way, there are no holes to patch when you install your base. Or, if Escape is doing the install, supply them with your chosen base prior to your build date. They have installed the Springfield for many customers, but I'm not sure about the Lagun.

Slider Option for Springfield Pedestal

Hello All:

As mentioned in a different thread by CRJ (and others), the Garelick/Eez-In 75080:01 Low-Profile Seat Slide can be considered for adding what appears to be about 5 inches of table sliding excursion to the Springfield Pedestal, which may improve access to the side dinette benches and/or rear dinette bench in a U-shaped dinette.

The Dicor slider used by many owners in the past appears to be currently unavailable on the North American market. The standard slider provided by Escape, may be too wobbly for many owners. The Lagun table mount (nicely discussed and illustrated in several threads) provides even more table mobility, but many not work as easily for those requiring nightly conversion of the dinette to a bed...

We plan to try the Garelick in a 2018 21' we have on order. Accommodating the Garelick as I've done it requires drilling 10 quarter-inch holes and countersinking the appropriate surfaces. (One could probably reduce this to only 6 holes.) We plan to use an intermediate plywood piece between the Springfield platen and the actual table that is not visible in the attached images...

We'll see how it goes after installation of the pedestal at orientation...

Best Regards,

Claude

Just went out and checked mine- screws are protruding about 1/8". Wish I'd seen your suggestion about 6 months ago. Good advice.

It's a bit frustrating that Escape didn't use shorter screws for the install though. Guess I'll be putting some caulk on the screw ends when it's warmer.

Here is a picture of the Escape 19 in the showroom and the covered screws from the two mounts.
