In retrospect, having spent quite a bit of time in the 19, If I were doing it again, I'd probably forego the U-shaped dinette unless I was getting a 21 or a 5.0TA. IMHO there's not 'quite' enough room in the dinette of the smaller trailers to take full advantage of the U-shape. No regrets about ours, especially since we installed a different pedestal that allows the table to swivel, but to make it a true 'lounge' area, the few extra inches of depth and width makes a big difference. The U-shape in a 21 and a 5.0TA is just great.

We also ordered the u-shaped dinette and got the Springfield pedestal that will allow for an easy swap of dining table to lounge... or a bed if needed. We felt that we would primarily be just the 2 of us, and if the table isn't quite large enough we also ordered the 2 side tables that flip up that could be used.

I like my u shape dinette. And I did put the springfield table in. It does make the table much more functional and easier to lower into bed. Being rather short at 5'2" I find it very easy to use for lounging, great place to sit and read!

Really only thing I would have done differently is, I would have put cabinet door on front bench. Still may do that!

I ended up with lots of extras, and I am happy I ordered them, rather than thinking about adding them later. One other after option I did was the tadi brother backup camera, which I had installed at best buy, one of tadi brothers recommended installers in my area.

Our dog, Murphy, prefers the standard dinette.

Great picture

And Gonzo th' Dawg prefers the U-Shaped

It's just the 2 of us to table size is not a problem and being on the Springfield pedestal makes getting in and out easy, even to the very back. When I want to lounge or watch a DVD it's simple to lower the table, spread out the cushions and enjoy.

Always so hard when it's time for them to cross that bridge. You're right, enjoy them while you can.

Sorry to hear this. Glad to have met her a few times, she was a sweet dog.

So sorry Glenn,
They manage to become a part of you and are missed when no longer here. Later, when you feel better, get yourself another fishing companion and call him/her Charley 2.
