Thanks for the numbers, Jim. I think we will go with the Dicor.

Can anybody confirm the standard table size with the U-shaped dinette in the 21?

I wondered about that. Thought it might be some kind of Imperial measurement.

Those are Chris R's measurements from his 5.0, and my bad dictation.

They are the same pretty much on our 5.0TA, which is the same as the 21. 34.5 back, 35 at the widest point before the 45 degree corners, 25 at the very front, 29.125 deep.

I have wondered if the table is a standard size or if the custom fit it to fit the benches on each trailer.

A couple pages back, there was a discussion on raising the dinette. What's the benefit of that?

The seats are about 4" higher than a standard chair, which is 18". I believe this is done in order to fit the water heater. The resultant, especially for those with shorter legs, is that their feet can't touch the floor when seated. Raising the floor remedies this.

Wasn't there something about raising the bench seating so folks could see out the windows? I thought the raised floor made up for the change in height. Could have it all mixed up too.

That was done in the front of the 19 for some people. We never felt we needed it, but to be fair, we mostly sat there on miserable nights, after dark.

Ok, so in the 21 and 5.0TA dinette which I'm thinking should be identical, if electrical is in one bench and the water heater is in the other, is there any storage space? Guessing the back bench on U-shaped dinettes are open for our storing treasures? A little hard to access. Hmmm....

It's getting to be a challenge to make up a build sheet since I've been in a 21 for about 3 minutes last June.
