Question ETI Springfield table slider range?

They're probably already here somewhere so I apologize in advance for not finding them ...

In the context of a 5.0 or 21C I'm looking for pics showing the table as furnished by ETI on a Springfield mount, slid as far as the ETI slider allows toward the DS and/or PS. I'm wanting to visualize how 'out of the way' (or not) the table is when using the area for 'lounging' on one bench (solo traveler), not dining.

Can the standard ETI table slider be 'locked' at any position in its range of motion?

Does a Springfield mount allow the table-top to rotate (not sure if the column-sections are 'keyed' in some manner to prevent rotation)?

Maybe the slider-range is the same for Springfield mount and standard 'fixed-height columns mount', I'm not sure, but if so pics of that system would suffice(?)

Yes, I'm aware of the Lagun option and other DIY solutions for different table systems .... at the moment I'm just wanting to visualize what one gets in the way of motion-range with the ETI Springfield option as they offer it.

Thanks!

Our 2020 E19 has the Springfield marine pedestal and the ETI slider. The slider does not lock in different positions (we actually removed it!)

Yes, the table top can rotate --the Springfield mount can turn. I'm very happy with the pedestal but would have liked a better slide mechanism.

Thanks!
There you go. The green dog blanket is also for me since I lounge there all the time. My wife didn't want me making the upholstery grubby with my work jeans.

I had the ETI table supplied uninstalled and bought my own Springfield. Don't think they were offering it as a option at the time. Yes, the table has a lock to keep it from sliding from side to side. Like the previous poster, we've removed it because I've never found that it was required. We also travel with the table up full time.

The table can move side-to-side, no problem. If it's mounted reasonably close to the back wall and you tried to rotate it the corner of the table would hit the wall. You'd need a 4 way slide to do that.

My problem with it was with it slide all the way to one side, if I stood on the opposite side & attempted to turn around to get something out of the upper cabinet, the table got in the way of my legs.

My solution was to switch to a Lagun mount...

The slider on my 2020 Escape 19 with factory installed Springfield pedestal slides a total of 13 inches, 6.5 inches in either direction. Since the bench on the bathroom side is recessed 4 inches back from the corner, with the 45 degree angle on the table and the table slid as far as it can, there is 9 inches of room between the edge of the table and the corner of the bathroom to get in on that side.

Yes, it can be locked in any position.

And the secret is......step into the space already facing the cabinet.

Different folks, different needs or, in most cases, wants.

That works if you are heading for the cabinet in the first place; no so well if you start out sitting on that side of the table...

No decisions yet ... just trying to be informed when I do, and y'all have all helped on that front, so Thank You All!

(I've been cruising the many threads / posts advocating Lagun vs Springfield and vice-versa, just hadn't run across pics of this aspect in any of those, now asked-and-answered )

That is the same procedure with the Scamp 16 front dinette to go to the bathroom. You needed to know whether it was #1 or #2 before you go in because you won't be able to turn around after you get in there.
