Re: Dinettes

Welcome to this forum. If you go to "Show your Escape" to "Factory fresh pics of a 5.0 in production" to page 3,
you will see pictures of our dinette which has the standard two removeable support posts and tabletop. They can be stored temporarly on the loft bed or in the pickup cab for more space. These trailers are much more smaller than the 31' Airstream you once had. Rear dinette seating in the 5.0 has straight back removeable cushions and one has to remember that this is built to convert into a bed. Having said that, the comfort could be better if someone forsaked the bed conversion and built improved bench seating as a mod. The benches have access doors to the batteries, water pump and water heater underneath. You will also see the buffet counter near the door. I just don't see a problem with the floor plan when cooking outside. I hope I have helped you with your questions.

Re: Dinettes

Those are great pictures David -- it was a section of the Forum that I had overlooked. And I can see how the buffet would serve the purpose of handing food back and forth from the trailer to outside. It actually might be better than having the kitchen area adjacent to the door because it is a whole other space to put things.. I don't think that having a smaller trailer will be a problem for us because when we last used our trailer there were 2 adults, five kids and 2 cats living in it for three months at a stretch. After that a 19' or a 5.0 for two adults will seem spacious. When we had the whole family, we didn't spend much time inside the trailer. I just want to figure out the best way to utilize that dinette space.

Do you have any pictures of the final product? I sure want to pursue the lounge/dinette idea.
