The amount we raised height is perfect our legs do not dangle . No one is suggesting if you are happy to raise your dinette . The info was for anyone who is unhappy . It is a very simple fix . We tried adding cushions that did not feel right . We thought sharing your mods was ok . Some people even change their floors . Mods are making your trailer more comfortable for you and are fun to do .

OK? I certainly appreciate your input. It's been helpful to me, and improved the way I'm going about raising our dinette. Don't let these naysayers give you any trouble. We'll just sit, or slouch, in our 19s, watch 'em go by, and be proud of our mods. If it wasn't for the tinted windows they could look in and see our ear to ear smiles.

Thanks.

What I read was that the "naysayers" were suggesting that this mod may not be an improvement for everybody. That one should sit in the trailer and decide, rather that decide based on the experience of others.

The mod posts were part of a conversation, as were the warnings to consider.

And, labels, such as "naysayers" are not helpful or conductive to civil discussion.

One should also note that the trailers have evolved over the years. I'm not sure that the exact same windows are used in all the 19s over the years.
My 17 has a sliding front window with rock guard that the manufacturer stopped making. Later 17s don't have that sliding front window, but the two windows either side open ( mine don't ).
The window in the 19 may also have changed over the years, so one person may be talking apples and another oranges.

My 19 has the front slider, a dual glazed window. It was one of the last before having to go with the single pane unit. We never have had need to open it, but really like the insulation value.

I was supporting Pat. I sensed he felt criticized for his contributions, and I want his continued participation. I apologize if it came through differently.
