The advantage is, they are reversible. There are pluses and minuses to either option. We like the full wrap.

If one side gets cut, snagged, marked you still have the other side as a backup.

Soliciting information/experience about table size. I will have the Springfield pedestal in my 17A and was expecting a full length table. The pics show the shorter table which I understand has an 8 inch filler. A couple of questions.

Do people with the full table have trouble getting in and out of the dinette benches? (I will have the slider.)

Which end would the filler piece go? From the picture, I assume at the edge toward the center of the trailer. That means that the table edge will be 8 inches inside the floor ledge. Since the 17 has such small counter space, I plan on using the table for prep space which will be awkward 8 inches from the step up.

All advice gratefully accepted.

ETI was at least for a while making tables without filler strips. The table was maybe 4" shorter than the gap from what I remember. Someone else could verify. This was with a table that slides side to side, so 8" with a slider would be more than enough.

I didn't want to mess with a slider myself, so I asked them to make me a 12" filler strip. This is about the smallest gap you would want without a slider. The old trailers had 10" filler strips, but they also had about a 2" gap at the wall in the bed position and zero gap in the table position, so it was effectively the same as having a 12" filer strip on the new tables that don't have a gap when in the bed position.

I made some cardboard mockups when deciding this. I'd recommend doing the same to get a feel for the dimensions since the ideal gap size will be somewhat dependent on your physical size.

Adeline, I'm not clear on the shelf you're referring to.

There is a shelf in post #6 but it was handmade.

If anyone has their 17 handy, would you be willing to get a couple of measurements? One is the counter from the right hand edge of the sink (its farthest on-top-of-the-counter edge where the stainless stops) to backsplash on the far right against the wardrobe/bathroom.

The other is probably the same in any model bench seat, the depth (aisle toward side wall) of the OPENING of the dinette bench when the hinge is open. I am trying to determine if the crates I have (13 3/4") will fit down into that underbench area.

Thanks in advance for your help.
