Hi: drpaddle... Round holes for the table pedestals to pass thru would make the filler board stronger if sat on. Alf

The only issue I see Alf is there is little clearance under the converter and propane detector for another floor under unless you want to abut these 2 items with your new floor. But then you have a step to contend with, "trip alert"....

We really like your "U". Did you have to make or order additional cushions?

No, I used the corner "U" cushions from the corners for the additional seat area. You can order an extra pair for delivery with your unit. this was just something that I made up, I use the big cushions you see in the pictures for back support in the corner where the pieces were removed. Do not forget your extra little pop up tables on each side. I also got one on the night stand side.

Hi: cpaharley2008... We had 6 yrs. of "Trip alert" with the 5.0's raised dinette floor. Like the "Duck alert" at the door you just LEARN!!! Alf

Thanks. We ordered the extra pop up tables for each side. We envision using it without the large table, so your modification is very interesting. So all I need to do is to cut a board to support the cushions?

Yes, I cut 2 pieces of 1x3 but each dinette is a little different size so you will have to wait and measure yours, also each piece may not the same either.Measure twice and cut once. I carry these 2 pieces in/under the rear dinette storage section. When I use this set up I put the table in the back of the tow vehicle.

I admire your hearty approach to camping....particularly your use of the pit toilet in the winter....
