Time to buy Springfield pedestal

We just purchased the Springfield Air-Powered 3-stage table pedestal from Overton's. The price was 319.00 less $60 discount code CHRISTMAS. No tax (at least in my state of WA) and free shipping. Net price: $259.99.

Carla Jean, are you taking the pedestal with you when you pick your 21 so that ETI can install it?

After the rally we had ETI install our Springfield Pedestal. We were surprised when Reace asked us if we wanted the pedestal installed flush to the back wall, or 3" out so that it could be lowered. We didn't realize that the back wall of the trailer is curved in slightly so that the table can't be lowered all the way unless it sits out from the wall when fully upright.

We finally decided to have it flush with the wall because a) we don't plan on using the dinette as a bed, and b) the main reason for the pedestal was to adjust the table for use as a computer desk and as an eating area.

The main reason I mention this is that we hadn't thought about this question, it was bit late, and we had just barely made the ferry from Vancouver Island to the main land. We were the next to the last car on the ferry. So we were not as coherent as we might have been and I am sure Reace thought "Boy are these folks ever a couple of ditzes." So hopefully now you have time to consider the alternatives.

When do you pick up your trailer?

Hi Leon,
We plan on taking the pedestal to ETI and have them install it to the table. However, we still are not certain as to whether we will have them install it to the floor and if we do, it will be several inches out so that it can be made into a bed. Having said that, we sure like what Doug and Sooz on Toto have done with their table. They cut down the table to a smaller size which drops to make into a lounging area. (See their blog: followtoto.com) Best of both worlds, except not room for dinner with friends, just drinks and appetizers. We always have the drop-down tables. And that's our final answer...! We'll see when we get there.

You folks in Port Townsend must be getting excited -- just a few weeks to go, yes?

Yes, just a few! Looking forward to photos. Guess the 21's pretty much look alike during the manufacturing stage, however!

We sent table legs and bases in advance. They did an excellent job installing them.

Cathy,
You said "legs", plural. Did you use the Springfield collapsable base?

We did not get a Springfield, just another version of table legs with flat bases.

I have seen table legs that screw onto the flat table base. Do you happen to know the brand or where you bought them? I certainly would prefer the flat base. How is it different from the Springfield?

We wanted to remove the table so we wanted flat bases. We only have the ETI table. The legs and bases are Sequoia from Pontoonstuff.
