The 4 way allows us to use our full size table without a gap at the back wall when dining, then pull it forward the couple inches required to lower it to bed height.
Norma too, was skeptical of the usefulness of a rotated table until I showed her how much cooking prep space she can have adjacent to the stove top.

The floor is raised now (Reace did find few pick-ups to fix while it was in the shop) and the new pedestal/slider combo is big a hit
....now on to a Widget install project

Great point in the food prep- prior to doing the table mod we didn't use one and it is nice to have that extra counter space- even in the 21.

Did you chop the pedestal platform down or shim it to work with the Dicor?

Cut it down - hence the need to raise the floor.
As a bonus - the raised floor under the dinette make the benches more comfortable - Guess I didn't realize how tall the classic 21 seating is.

What I meant was did you make the top of the Springfield smaller than 12x12 so the Dicor would fit over it?

The 3" in floor height does make a big difference

Yes, I cut 2" off each of two sides to make it 8" x 12" so the Dicor would fit down over it.

Somewhere I must have misread, I have the full size (unmodified) U dinette table with the original slide and the Springfield.
