Ours adjusts to any height.

That would work. After replacing the original legs with the Springfield we ended up low and had to raise it. Including ETI's slider mechanism I ended up a total of 1.850" above the top plate to get back to the original height. The Springfield plate is just under 12".

Sounds like the ideal setup would be a Springfield pedestal with a Dicor slider. This is getting too complicated.

Excellent suggestion (fix it to slide front to back). I have been 'annoyed' at the side to side sliding and so has my wife. If we have people over for dinner and they sit in the back they have to 'suck it in' when they are seated and eating. Not ideal. I'll fix that! Thanks.

The table hits the fold down when they are open and the fold mechanism when they are closed.

G
You still need the width to lay on the platform to make a double bed.

Jim, I get your question and it's a very good one. Our only reason was that if we don't like the table, we can always remove it. Then we have the flip-ups when layin' around or watching TV. You know, it's a little perplexing when the trailer is many miles away being built. We just tried to visualize and plan ahead. Maybe the idea of reorienting the slide front to back might be a good one. The flip-ups were the only questionable option on our part, but everything else is perfect! Hey, in the whole scheme of things, it's not important, right? We LOVE our 21'!

Each 'stage' can be adjusted to whatever height you like, until it reaches it's max extension. You just engage the clamp.
