I had heard of the wobble. It concerns me because one of the things we want is to be able to use the table for kitchen prep work when we're forced to cook inside. Doesn't matter how big your kitchen is, you can always use more counter space. And, of course, trying to work on a wobbly counter is quite irritating.

Help me understand the existing table... As I understand it, there is a base table supported on a couple of tubular legs, and the true table surface sits on top of this with a sliding mechanism between.

Is there any reason that the bottom of the slide mechanism couldn't be fixed to the trailer wall? If that were done, the wobble should be pretty much eliminated.

In looking for pictures of the 19' dinette I ran across this thread on fiberglassrv: More Escape 19 mod pictures (some one asked) - Fiberglass RV That looks like an excellent modification (except for the fact that it eliminates any possibility of doing a better job of eliminating the wobble...)

We had a exterior access door added to access the drivers side dinnette storage area, there isn't much room in there with the black tank, electrical stuff and surge protector.

I keep lots of stuff in that storage area, my BBQ, an electric cube heater, and assortment of cables, inverter, and a few other things. I had thought of putting an access in, but could not keep the BBQ in there then.

In my 19, the black tank only takes up about 6-8" of space, and has storage on top. Are the tanks bigger now, I know one of the tanks at least has been upsized.

The black tank in that area is bigger than the earlier models. I can't remember the volume differences but that area is only useful for small odd and ends.

Yes, my street side storage is comprised of the storage tank which takes up about 50% of the floor area. It is covered with a board and it is about 50% of the vertical space (of the 50% of the horizontal space). Upon that board is my EMS system and some spare toilet tissue storage. The residual space has the converter so I do not want any metal nor heavy items that can damage, so I screwed a large plastic dishpan to the floor and store some items in it. The curb side storage is 100% free and where I put most of my items with the side access door and top for access.
