I did look at the original picture, but didn't interpret it correctly -- yes, that is basically what I had in mind, though it doesn't show how the table components nest into the bench.

I didn't think that two sections (which would be the bench back and seat) would be sufficient for the table. You've got a 48" space for the dinette. I would guess the back and seat only add up to about 30-36". But I guess you don't want the table to take up the whole 48", or you'll have problems getting backsides around corners.

Ottoman... more storage, I like it

The only issue I see in all of this is where are you going to put the table while "lounging"?? Seems to me if you go with the ottomans, you leave the big table at home and use a tv tray or one of the flip up tables Escape offers.

More importantly, where do you put your drink if you don't have a table??

Mine is usually on a little folding side table, as I sit by the campfire. Though, I have found out in recent years, there are places that don't allow campfires...seems weird to me.

I am not much for lounging around inside, but I do notice when I go to campgrounds there does seem to be a lot of people staying in their trailers. As usual, I seem to be an exception.

We used to have a Chinook with this type of seating which was wonderful. I have asked the folks at Escape something like this might be possible but haven't heard back.

Before deciding on the u shaped dinette, I thought I wanted the folding table/magazine rack/cup holder Camping world sells but it won't install on the curved trailer body.

I'm a wanna-be-outside person too Jim. But, I'm looking to the future. Remember, that blowing sideways rain at the Oregon Coast that I'm looking forward to? A week of that kind of weather and I know being inside and have a comfortable "livingroom" is going to be important to me. YMMV

Donna, are you telling me you aren't going to stand at the shoreline skyclad, letting the waves wash over you, cleansing your soul? lol

I do hear you on that Donna, and if I was in that situation, I'm pretty sure I would be inside watching quite a bit too.

I seem to recall a conversation indicating that bench seats in dinette area part of the strength engineering. At one time Reace would not install "easy chairs" in their place. Maybe that has changed.

Yes, I remember Reace's comment also...

Yep me too. I had hoped to have a big ole blank area to put a Bark-o-Lounger. Unfortunately for me, the rear cabinets provided support, otherwise the back end gets floppy... or, so I remember the discussion.

My sentiments exactly Donna. This shot was up the coast from you, not raining but early April cool, nice warm and comfy inside. Oh and the drivers side foldup table was gainfully deployed

Per Reace, the new 5 will only have the standard dinette. I have to guess it would be the same as the standard on the 21... Does anyone know the dimensions for the table?

Still working on a different kind of table!

Thanks all!

Vicki

Hi Vicki,

That's really helpful information Kathie.

For all the rest, remember this is for the sliding table (pedestals) which is a different length than the table that uses the back hinge.
