The back wall of the trailer curves out slightly so if the table top alights with it at the top of the bench and is raised straight up, there will be a gap at table height.
The fore-aft/side-side slider will deal with that.

I had mistakenly thought Leon was referring to a curve side to side, not up and down. Silly me!

The only thing you cannot do is remove table unless you unscrew it . I really don't need to remove table anymore . Everything works as it should . Pat
Also unlatched table will turn all around if you wanted . Pat

Which is really handy with the U-shaped dinette and smaller table.

Yes my table will slide front to back and side to side now ,also turn 360 degrees . I cut my table down .orignal width is still the same to move down for lounge or bed . But the orignal front to back is now shorter . Table is not against front of trailer wall , I have a space so table can rotate 360 degrees . Front of table was made shorter so easier to get in dinette , even though you can slide table side to side . Makes trailer look larger and really don't need bigger table . Another project someday is to make a new (Myron ,"Pollack" table ) . I still have Escape slide on my table with the marine pedestal . I also have a shelf going across on the ledge at front of trailer, under table for books ,I-pads etc. . I just have regular dinette as been previously mentioned can still make into a lounge . Pat

What make of pedestal did you install. Does anyone know if ETI will install a pedestal if we purchase it and have it sent to them early enough in the build. I think I read in the Forum that someone had them do this but would appreciate confirmation.

Paul is right about this. Thanks for clarifying. I assume it would not be a problem with a U-shape dinette. I am not sure if is a problem on a 19 or not. This is only about my 21. sorry I wasn't more clear.

Once he explained, and I reread your post, it was clear to me. I would imagine it is the same with the 19 if you used a pedestal and a full sized table. Ours was the dual knock down type, so would not know for certain.
