So far I haven't seen any comments from anyone except Captmath explaining their install(his was with the Dicor).

I've never been fond of the stock plastic slide after our table tumbled off on I-40 during a detour during a construction project near Kingman. It broke the rails and Tammy sent me more(at no cost) and a stop screw that was missing. I made my own turn-key that goes into a fitting I planted into the bottom of the table top but it just seems funky. That is what is driving me towards the Dicor primarily. Wonder if you could use the four way Dicor slide on the Springfield.
Ross Flat floor to top of dinette without cushions !8 in
Top of platform to top of all my cushions 20 5/8 in
Platform height is 4 in
Extra cushion the grey is 2 in Someday want to get new seat cushions at least 6 in thick .
Well you can see I am stalling the bearing regrease . Too windy today and not in the mood . Is this the measurements you needed? I don't know about adding the Dicor you can see the table top sits nice on the Springflied but it is your call . pat

Reace installed my table while I was making the final payment. Rae did my orientation and when I commented on the height of the benches (because of table), she insisted they were the same as the raised floor version. So I thought I must have measured the classic incorrectly.

Just spoke with Jeff Sbirt @ Dicor and he is not familiar with any need for shimming the table for a 22" height bench seat, however when I explained what Captamth did he agreed that would be fine. I know Jim Bennett is considering the Dicor and wondering if he has any thoughts of this mounting consideration.

From Dicor: "Table top slides 9.5” in both directions lengthwise and 7.5” in both directions widthwise." Confirmed with Jeff that you can have it fully extended and still lower down, so that means the pedestal doesn't have to be centered in the dinette area and therefore in the case of the u-shape dinette one could slide it more towards the rear when not using it. We're planning to cut down our table, just not sure how much.

Hi Ross cut our table down for now until I get some wood and make the (Myron ,Jackson Pollock table )later . I cut 4 in off back and 12 in off front . Like the smaller size , makes trailer look a little bigger and we don't need table that big . Left the side to side so can still lower to ledges for bed . Pat
