U Shaped dinette table option?

There seems to some folks that have the u shaped dinette and are not completely satisfied with the table. We have a 21 on order and have been searching for a different solution for the table. We found the Lagun table system. Any thoughts, Kevin

WOW! That looks like a GREAT table! Especially if, like us, you don't use the table area as a bed. Too bad they are so hard to get in the US! And, it is a little pricey...but a great solution!

Saw a Lenker table at an RV show. They're quite impressive and very easy to move in any direction, but I felt they were a bit on the wobbly side.

The Lagun mechanisms seem more stable than the Lenker in the videos I looked at.

I have no problem with the table provided by ETI in my 5.0TA, but I did alter the slide direction which, when I took delivery, it slid from side to side. I reconfigured it to slide front to back, which is how, in my opinion, it should have slid in the first place.

Looks like it wobbles some which is my only issue with the standard one we have. Guess someone will need to buy one and try it for a real life critique.

I had two stooge tables added to each side of the u shaped dinette, no table mounts installed. I have never even put the table in the trailer and we have not missed it. The two of us eat at the small fold down tables and it works fine. This makes the sitting area larger and more open.
The first picture you can see the table in the background. The second gives you a view of the U shaped dinette.

here is a mod done by a new 21 owner.....http://followtoto.com/turning-the-ta...nge/......this is the route I think we will go....ETI will install the pedestal and cut the table down and mount it...we will have an extra cushion made for size of table so we can use as lounge or add extra piece and make into bed...seems like the best of both worlds to us....definitely extra expense with pedestal and filler cushions.....hope to do all of this ONCE!!

Hi - we checked out the Lagun table pedestal and even purchased one thinking we could use it with our 5.0 with a U-shaped dinette (scheduled for Aug. 2017). I just got an email from ETI saying that the rear fiberglass and dinette won't support this type of mount. I sent a reply with an attachment (showing the Lagun table mount) just to make sure we were talking about the same product. It seems like these mounts are make for boats and RVs, so I don't quite get the issue. I would have thought that ETI could make this work with a custom support of some kind built into the back of the dinette.
Anyhow, did you ever order/install the Lagun pedestal mount on your trailer dinette?
Thanks,
John
