I don't know if ETI would install one for you so if you were to decide on one I'd suggest you at least ask ETI to not install the factory pedestals., this would eliminate filling/covering holes left from the factory install.

Yes, that's what I did. Told them not to install the pedestals. They still gave them to me loose but I didn't have to patch any holes. I then fabricated and installed my own design of pedestal.

For those of you who have the springfield Marine table pedestal, have any of you put it in the dinette of a 21? Does the table still slide back and forth? We are thinking of ordering one and having ETI install it when they raise the floor of our dinette. It looks to me like it might be more stable, and a bit easier for one to avoid knocking a knee on when getting into or out of the dinette. It also looks more stable than the two posts. Thanks for any advice

Yes, the table can still slide back and forth, yes, anything is more stable than the standard two posts, and yes to more knee and foot room.

On my 19 with the U-shaped dinette, they asked me which way I wanted it to slide, and installed the pedestal and table at delivery time.

It is MUCH more stable than the 2 posts - and the table top can be easily twisted. But the table cannot be readily removed (without removing some screws.)

Thanks, Guys!

Ron and Doug, thanks much for the info. A pedestal is on its way to us. I don't care about removing the table -- just want something nice and stable.
