Right. We had the floor raised 3.5" which puts the floor just below the heater & power converter. My recollection is that we did some measurements for vertical tolerances, and that was the max height of the floor. But I didn't think about the fact that the rear wall of the trailer angles in, and there is a rear trim board between the two benches that also angles in starting about an inch and a half above the rails that support the table when it is used as abed.

How much did ETI charge for doing the raised floor and the pedestal install? We need similar mods.

We don't have the wood working skills of some of the folks on this forum. We are looking at hiring a local handyman but don't currently have any names. We know
that ETI would do a good job.

Dicor Cosmo Won't Work

Thanks to Jim Bennett for sending me a PM cautioning me that the height of the Cosmo pedestal at it's lowest setting might not match up to the bench height with my raised floor. Lucky for me he has one to spec. Dicor says the pedestal is 13" on their website but on the phone today said it is 14" without the slide. My rails for the bed are 14" above the new floor and with a 3/4" table plus slide it won't work
The good news is the Cosmo was on backorder so I don't have to ship it back.

Ordered a Springfield from Overton's for $269 with a SAVE50 Promo
