The Dicor features a 4-way slide of the table, which is a really nice fauture. Many folks like that. It's pedestal is different however, in that it has detents which set the height, rather than having the height be adjustable you whatever you want. One other thing I like about the Springfield is that you can rotate the table as well as slide it. Some have combined the Dicor 4-way slide with the Springfield pedestal so they can have the best of both worlds.

I've not seen the Dicor in person. My impression is that it's easier to use, as there is a single lever to lower/raise is just below the table level rather than the Springfield setup involving two collar clamps to be adjusted, at mid height levels on the pedestal.

With that said, the Springfield is good quality, and I'm happy with the purchase. I installed it right before my last trip, and it worked fine. It *could* be a bit more stable I suppose, but it's a table in a travel trailer, not a drafting table in my home, so I'm fine with that.

The Springfield can be locked at any height, I believe folks on the forum stated that the Dicor had only a couple detent positions that could be used.

Springfield cost me $308 to my door, and I reused the Escape original slide design.
I was quoted $245 for the Dicor pedestal, and $135 for the 4 way slide. IIRC, shipping from Dicor was more expensive.

Agree the Dicor slide isn't necessary. It does slide 4 ways and is much better made, but with its expanded range of motion you need to watch banging the table into the corners of the fridge & stove walls. Have put some pipe insulation there for insurance.

I bought it for the explicit purpose of being able to quickly go from dinette to bed, and back. For that purpose it works very well. I don't know the nature of your 3" higher request. If it's just the seats being raised, no problem, the whole table will just come to rest in a higher position than it would normally.

I'd suggest having ETI install it, rather than during pickup. It's relatively easy to install, but I believe ETI has installed it for other people. Also, if for whatever reason they install the original post design, then you install the Springfield, you'll be left with some screw holes in the floor. Only a cosmetic concern, but no reason to have to deal with it.

Thanks for the information, Smeagol. I want to be sure to purchase the correct model that will fit. Cheers!

this coupon code only works to 11.59 PM ET on Tuesday May 10th 2016.

The final price, of the (cheaper than black) silver one, delivered, was $256.

I'm hoping that it goes low enough for the 3" (stock, not an option, must be this way) raised floor of the 2017 21'

I seem to recall that it will. Anyone with a current 21' care to confirm?
Clarification needed, is the floor of the 2017 21 raised?

I guess I'm not understanding why a raised floor is a concern with the Springfield pedestal. If the dinette floor is raised, then the benches are raised a corresponding amount as well. That means the rails the tabletop sits in when lowered are exactly the same height above the floor as they are without a raised floor. What am I missing?

The seats won't be raised, as they are already too high in relation to the floor height. This is why some folks have added the raised floor either themselves or had Escape do it.

But you are absolutely correct in that there is no issue with the Springfield pedestal working with the 2017 models. Heck, I bought one to use with my Dicor slide.

Thanks Jim. I forgot that we were talking about a 21. In that case I'd say that as long as the rail tops are at least 12 3/4" above the floor, the Springfield will work fine, since that's its lowest setting.

I just want to know if there is a step up. Like something for me to trip over without the table there

Ginger, there will be a 3" step up. I don't see it being a tripping hazard at all, as you are only sliding in to the table there, or if no table just making stepping in. Should you trip, there is a lot of cushioning there.

I seriously see no concern. Besides, it is a done deal anyway.
