Table Options

Are all table mods after-market or are there some options available from the factory. For example, some people have mentioned installing a pedestal type table. Are those after-market only? We are still not sure about whether to go with the U-shaped dinette. I understand the table that comes with that is smaller, correct?

We really like some of the photos that people have shared of the "lounge" created with the u-shaped dinette. In those am I correct in assuming they have simply done away with the table to create that space? Is there a "removable" option?

Yes, the table is smaller and that makes it easier to manage. We leave ours at home. The open area is nice to have. Two counter extensions back there in our case. You should have the standard table made and installed even if you plan to take it out. It makes the area into a bed.

There are lots of options. In our case we are not having the table installed. We did not use it for the last couple years in our previous Escape. We are getting a couple 12" filler boards with cushions we will carry under the bed in case we need to make the U-shape dinette into a bed or use just 1 and expand the lounging area. The standard table will not fit through the cabinet doors to store under the bed so it's just left at home and we use a little folding table.

We went with a round table, provided by ETI, with the standard poles. (19 U-shape)

I like that round table.

We are going with the U-shaped dinette on our 19'. We purchased a Springfield telescoping pedestal that allows it to do down for the bed and up for a table. ETI will mount the pedestal and also put a slider on the table which allows the top to move side to side for easier entry. You can also rotate the table with the pedestal.

We took the pedestal to ETI when we visited Chilliwack after Christmas.

There are several threads and pictures off the Springfield pedestal in this forum if you search for it.

For those of you who have changed your table- cut down the size, or changed the direction of the Escape slide - how did you remove the slide from underneath the table?
It looks like you just need to remove the screws on the ends- but there has to be more than that holding it up? How do you get the two pieces apart?

What is the difference between the ETI slider and the Dicor slider that some use? We are doing a U shaped dinett and will use the Springfield telescoping pedestal.

You remove the end screws and slide the two plywood pieces apart. You can then access to screws that attach the sliders.

The stock ETI slider is two plywood pieces on attaches to the table top and one attaches to the table base. Between them is a pair of plastic sliders and a thumb screw to prevent movement when you don't want it to slide. It works well.
The Dicor is assembled from aluminum extrusions and uses rollers for movement and clamps to prevent movement. It also works very well & of course, slides two directions if you want it two.
You probably don't need it for a U-dinette. I used it to be able to adjust the gap on the standard dinette table between eating and sleeping positions.

Dior slide very effective in u-shape; probably more so than in a standard dinette. In both it adds stability as it is more rigid than the plastic slides- which for many is still fine.

It looks nice!
Maybe I should think about round table. My wife thinks it takes more place than square table.

Thanks Paul, you saved me some money.

Ours slides forward/backward, which creates lots of room to get in by the bathroom wall.
