U-shaped dinette info needed.

Can anybody tell me the dimensions of the "U" in the standard u-shaped dinette in an Escape 21? I'm exploring options in table shape, size and mounting hardware for our 2016 Escape 21 but the only conclusion I've reached so far is that I'm hooped without a reasonably accurate dimension set from which to work.

What dimensions do you want? ETI's web site specs the dinette at 48" X 86".

The dimensions of interest are the breadth and depth of the floor space within the "U". In other words, the overall size of the standard table top used to fill the "U" when making up the bed.

The table (and floorspace below) is not a rectangle, but an Isosceles Trapezoid.

It is a convex quadrilateral that widens towards the front of the trailer.

Thank you. I accept your Isosceles Trapezoid without reservation. I would feel even more kindly towards it if it came with dimensions, if such is conveniently possible.

From my 5.0TA, I'm told they are the same as the 21's.

Think Isosceles Trapezoid with the 2 front corners cut at 45 degrees 5" from the front. All the corners (6) are rounded. When in the lowered (bed) position, there is about .125" play, side to side. Don't know if the table tops are custom fit for each trailer or if they are all exactly the same.

Depth front to back, 29.25"
Width at the back, 34.5"
Max width, 5" from the front, 35"
Front width, 25"

After 2 months on the road the table wobble drove me nuts. I just replaced the table legs with the Springfield folks have been using. Would suggest you consider the same at build time, depending on what your table plans are.

Thanks, Bob, that's what I need. My plans include a Springfield style pedestal. Arrigoni Design makes a similar product. Does your Springfield lock at bedrail height? Their literature seems to indicate lockability at only 3 preset heights.

The Springfield pedestal is adjustable to any height within its range -- not just three pre-sets. You just push it down until it's where you want it, then close the two locking levers. Pix here.

The only thing I ran into was using the default top and slide setup was the table at max height was an inch or so lower then the original legs made it. Added a piece of 3/4" ply to raise it back up.

Thanks! I perused the info on your blog and was impressed. Beautiful job!

Would it be presumptuous of me to ask the narrow dimension of your table top? By your picture, with the table rotated 90 degrees, that's exactly the effect I wanted.
