Gjk, our trailer just entered production, and the pedestal will be installed at orientation, but when I was up at ETI to finalize our build sheet I had the pedestal with me. I put the table top down as if I was making the dinette into a bed and lowered the pedestal all the way down and slid it under with a bit of room to spare.

Since the pedestal locks at any height, and doesn't need to support the table top since that rests on the benches, just put the table top all the way down all the way down and lock the pedestal.

Hopefully others who have the Springfield pedestal won't tell me I'm wrong about that.

Gary

springfield table

We ordered from LLEBROC.com for $283 Its the 12 3/4 - 28 in and it fits perfectly on the 21 Escape .I don't know about the ETI 19 .This is one option that everyone should get it makes going from dinette to bed in less then a minute or less .Pulling those poles up is very frustrating . Now my grandson can make up his bed .Now only if I got ETI to install the inverter and a few other options . For all those doing there build sheets Get what you want for an extra few hundred its worth every penny .

does raised dinette change distance to floor

We have a 19 on order and are planning to add a Springfield. Some mention the raised dinette being a factor, but I don't see how it would come into play. My understanding is that the dinette is raised by raising the floor. This would imply that the distance between the floor and the top of the seat would remain unchanged. Can someone confirm that this is the case or correct me if I'm wrong?

Is anyone aware where the "Springfield 3-stage air-powered pedestal" can be ordered in Canada? I've found it on US websites where either it can only be delivered to the 48 states, or we face unknown customs fees shipping across the border. Has anyone ordered it north of the 49th? I can't find it on Amazon.ca.
Thank you.

HLD-Edmonton, I believe you can order it from West Marine in Vancouver. I know that's not where you are, but maybe check with them and see if they can get it to you?

So if I ordered the 14 inch I should cancel the order and look for a 12 and 3/4 inch one ? I can remember which I ordered I'll check tomorrow.

Hello all....Newbie here.

I'm trying to follow along on this thread. If I understand correctly the springfield is better than what comes standard because it is easier/faster to convert the dinette to a bed. Are there any other advantages?
