I can see where, if you had the regular bench seats, the side to side movement would be the way to go; however, like Carl found out, in a U-shaped dinette, not having the ability to move the table front to back means that use of the back bench is restricted. Interesting.

Not long ago you could specify how you wanted the table to move, E/W or N/S. May or may not still be the case.

You can, but it depends on the dinette size whether or not that's practical. On our 19, a front to back slide wasn't as practical as in the 21. A few extra inches of width and depth make a big difference with clearances. We solved the problem by installing the Springfield pedestal, and moving the sliders about an inch or two toward the back of the table. This gave us more clearance along the back, we could still slide left or right to get in and out, and more importantly, we could now rotate the table.

You have to request front to rear, otherwise side to side is standard.

I requested the front to rear sliding table in May and Crystal told me it wasn't available. Loren

WE have the front to back slide on our 21 u-shaped dinette. We didn't know we could request side to side. It came front to back. We picked up March of 2014. Works great-it was a bit hard to get in if you are a bigger person. My husband took the table off and moved it back further on the slides. There is no problem with front to back now. Handy when there have been 6 people in for dinner.

We just picked up our 21' Escape July 28th. We opted for the U-shaped dinette for lounging purposes. I removed the installed table and floor pedestals before we made it home. There is only the two of us and the table took up too much room. (I don't have the measurements for the table.) We had ETI install 2 fold-down tables on each side of the dinette. We may, in the future, add a foldup table if we find we need something larger to eat off of.

The side cushions that you sit on are 25" deep. The back cushion you sit on is only 18" deep. I'm 5'10, my hubby is 6'. This cushion was not deep enough for comfort, either to lay across or sit on.

Today I made a cushion to extend that area an additional 6".

You may want to ask ETI how much it would cost to have them make one out of the same upholstery as the other cushions.

We had 2 filler pieces made.
One is 12 inches and the cost was $100 CDN.
The other one is 18 inches and cost $150 CDN.

Together they turn the whole area into a bed.
Sperately they give us more choices for the lounge setup.

Although, we have the table and hardware we asked ETI to not install the table. That way we don't trip over the floor mounts for the table. If we find that eating on the flip-up tables doesn't work we can install the table ourselves. Based on our 11 day trip home, we like this arrangement very much.

I'm confused now. I would have thought, and was hoping, that the back cushions from the two side benches would have fit there to make a bed. They don't? Or did you just want to leave those in place?
