We have a 21 on order so I need to get up to speed.

So what is the standard factory hardware for the dinette table? What would be the point of installing the pedestal support in a manner that would not allow it to be lowered?

I was just checking them out, and that's the conundrum. The table legs would have to be stored, and the table, as well. There was is no perfect table on the market. If only the Springfield had a flat base! Oh, well, our Springfield table has been ordered, at a good price.

Pat, it's going to be a year. Might as well have waited for 2017 but heck, it's done now. Love the 19' (alot!) but our camping has changed since I retired. Farther and longer trips kind of necessitate a bit more elbow room and more storage.

Re: dinette table, I'm thinking of going rogue and looking into an "all of the above" solution so we're set if/when things change for us in the future. Standard dinette today, u-shaped dinette later, covertable into a tv lounge or convertable bed later. Still working on it...

Hi: greggo... What I'm contemplating is changing the table legs to the marine flat turn to lock "Sequoia" 7" style. Just not sure if the bases would cover all the existing holes in the floor. Just found it's available to look at in Gander Mountain Stores. http://www.gandermountain.com Alf

table

The Springfield raising pedestal seems like a winner You could cut table in 2 and put a piano hinge in to make full table .That's how some boat builders do it that way you could use as a table for 4 or a lounge area for watching tv or reading etc.

Though I plan to use the Dicor Cosmo, with the 4-way sliding top, my plan is to do something similar. I am thinking of folding both sides (25% width each) to form a half sized table for lounging.

Nothing is bought yet, and the planning continues.

Zwaardvis has some great solutions too, but certainly seem expensive.

Hi: Jim Bennett... A "Half sized table" sounds like a diet aid... like using smaller plates. Alf

Folding table sounds good. Attached to a twist lock style floor mount will reduce the wobbles. I'm contemplating having hardware on the wall to hook the table to for a full dinette. I might be asking a little much from a folding table.
