How about anywhere in the mid west?

Hey Bill
Our 19 that you looked at once went to a fellow who lives in LaCrosse WI. It was a very early U Shape, maybe the first Reace ever did. It was not built quite like the later ones so thatís why I hesitated to mention it earlier. I will PM the new owners name to you. We liked the UShape well enough but since it was usually just the two of us and we donít watch much TV while camping we probably did not use it as much as some do. The table I built for it I put on a snap 2 folding base. It was smaller than the original large table about 30% smaller. We like the snap 2 base for clearance and if we want to take the table outside. Have a great day

The U-shaped dinette works fine for us two in the 19. But if it were more than two of us, I would go with the standard configuration. The 19 dinette area is relatively small, and the U shape doesn't really create a comfortable lounge anyway. In the 5.0TA or the 21, I think the U shape is more practical.

We have a 19í with U dinette & Lagun table mount. Awesome combo, complete floor space & swiveling table allows us to fit 4 at the table very cozy. 3 is just right !
