Dicor pedestal height

Does anyone have a Dicor pedestal table without a raised floor? And if you do have the Dicor pedestal without a raised floor what is the table height?
Thanks!

I know people with a skates have installed the pedestal tables. Do they all have a raised floor?

Captmath in Post #59 says "Sorry. I missed this question. The table base is narrower than the Helm pedestal so I added a couple of 2x4 rails to raise the table and clear the locks. At some point they will get some paint." If you expand the picture you see the bottom of the table top and the angled piece is part of the slide platform.

Am wondering if those with the Springfield have the same issue of needing to shim the table upward as the max height is the same as Dicor- 28".

No Ross the table top sits right on the aluminum plate of the pedestal .After install table top is 29 1/4 from floor to table . No blocks of wood needed . Pat

Now am a little confused. You have the Springfield don't you Pat? Dick (captmath) just told me he used 2x3. Guess I will have to wait until the Dicor arrives next week to see how it works. Think I prefer it - though about $100 more than best price on Springfield as you don't need to clamp it for other than all the way up or down. Dicor on the other hand probably doesn't swivel. Ying/Yang.

Yes I have the Springflied . I will post a picture of installation . I think Gregg figured out the Dicor does not have the correct up and down span . I'll just post picture so you can see . Pat

Ross measurement is from Floor to table . It doesn't matter if on platform or flat floor . I used Escape"s side to side and if I turn table around it will go back to front . I cut my table down . Because I aded platform only needed to add a higher ledge because of platform . Without platform the table would still operate as it does now. Hope this helps . Pat

Pat- looks like you have your seat cushions resting on something to make it higher? What is the normal height from floor to top of cushions for a 19? I think it may be less than the 21trailer or 5.0TA which is 22". That may account for the difference in installation. 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.

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
