Yes, its a U-shape. I can see where you'd benefit from installing it in the standard dinette too, but of course you couldn't rotate it very far.

This one looks cool.

Its electronic. Wiring might make it difficult to install, and its min height is 17". Im not sure if that would be low enough for bed conversion?

Yeah, saw that one awhile back Sean. The height of the table when made into a bed is 14". That'd be too high. Also, I think the base is too bulky, and might reduce the room for your feet. I won't even go into the wiring part - more trouble than its worth.

Robert, how did you cover the holes from the removed bases?

Sean, I just flattened the holes in the vinyl with the tip of a screwdriver, then applied a dab of tan colored Kwik Seal over them. Pretty hard to see the repair. Because of the size of the new base and the locations of the previous holes, I only had to patch a few of them.

If you enter the code SAVE15 during checkout, they knock about $48 off the price. $271.99 is alot better than $319.99.
Thanks for the great info, Robert. I will add the pedestal to my wish list! Would be a good winter project for Ike

I wonder if it could be used without attaching to the floor, possibly lowering for travel and elevate once at your destination? Lowering should keep it in place.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for another "making your trailer home" helpful mods/steps.

One quick question, though, based on the Overtons site :

Springfield 3-Stage Air-Powered Table Pedestal - Overton's

the table has 3 heights - Three air-powered height adjustments: 12-3/4", 20", 28".

so, my question is, do you, or anyone here, know if these align with the 21' bed/cushion height, like they do with the 19' ?

Or, are they the same ?

Possibly Jim. The base is wide. It was pretty stable just sitting there unanchored. But, I didn't try to put anything on the table. It would probably be too unstable or wobbly if you wanted to eat dinner or place a heavier object on one side of the table.
