19 front U shaped dinette

Here is a picture of our front u dinette. The front bench is 18" wide, the side benches are 24" wide. It is built to the stock deminsions of the 5.0 dinette. Build is about done we will pick it up August 13.

Dave,

What are the dimensions of your bed? I love this u-shaped design, but wonder about the size of the bed.

Thanks,
Mike

The dinette bed will be as stock 44 wide plus length. The front long back cushion is 2" thick so bed many be 42" wide. Will have a couple more seams from cushions. Hope that was your question.

I would guess that it won't have any impact on the size of the bed. It must be built into the standard front dinette area, as that space is limited in width by the position of the door. It can't be made wider without modifying the fiberglass molds, and if it isn't wider then it shouldn't impact anything in the rest of the trailer.

I think the only impact of this change would be to force a smaller (and presumably single pedestal) table.

I'd be curious to know how comfortable this arrangement is if you have 4 people seated around the table. Is there room for 4 to eat at the table, or is the space limited to a game of cards?

Can you still get the sliding table, or is a single pedestal not sturdy enough for it?

And can you raise the seats enough for Donna to see comfortably out the windows?

Dave,

My mistake, I was thinking you had reversed the bed and dinette, and converted the bed area (back of trailer) into the u-shaped dinette leaving the front area for your main bed. I had read earlier here that was possible, so just wondered what size of main bed that left you with. Regardless, I still like your u-shaped dinette and most likely will do the same myself, if I go with the 19, which I am leaning.

Thanks,
Mike

Thanks,

Since it just the wife and I we wanted a more lounge area. We saw AZJacks 19 who had a u dinette and really liked it. Think the table will be dbl pedestal and will have the slide.
Maybe some of the 5.0 owners can share their experience with 4 people.
Yes the bed reversal was just done in a 19, if I was a lone traveler I would also consider it. Sure is nice to have a company willing to build what you want within reason.

Basically these are custom built to order, I have put the u-shaped dinette on my list of options, it looks so nice as well as comfortable! You're correct, where else are you going to find a company thats so willing to accommodate their customers in this day and age? I don't own a Escape yet, but am sooo impressed.

Thanks for sharing, Dave!

Yes there will be storage as the electric was moved to the front section along with the inverter and surge protector. Drivers side will have The black tank. Passenger side should be empty.
