We have straps attached to the table, but we don't always use them. No issues so far when left unstrapped.

They are beautiful cherry - I'd like to keep them that way! I was thinking we could wrap a bungee cord around them and secure it under the table - I don't know. Thought I'd seek some expert advice.


We don't have any trouble with them moving in the MH. When we pulled a 5er we had to cover them with towels and use long straps in a "figure 8" pattern across the table to hold them in place!

We have been leaving ours loose at the table with no problems, except on time when an A$$ pulled out in front of us. I'm thinking about bungee cording them next time out.

When we were using the "original" chairs - we pushed up 'em under the table and as close to the cabinet that the dining table surface protrudes from as practical. With the slides in - there really wasn't anywhere they could go.

We've since replaced the "original" chairs - I replaced mine with a wheeled office chair (I regularly spend 8 hours a day at the table working my day job and needed something a little better seat cushion and without a straight back. For reasons I'll never fathom - my wife loves how the chairs from a set a inexpensive stackable resin chairs that we picked up years ago feel. They're not the flimsy plastic type - but are instead made from some sort of harder resin. She brings a stack of two of 'em ... one that she uses at the dining table - and the other that get's set in the bedroom when we're not moving. We stack 'em and set 'em at the dining table when we're on the road.

We don't do anything to secure the chairs we're now using either. The wheeled office chair does move around a little - but with the slides closed, it can't move far.

Thanks all! Leaving them alone isn't an option, as that's what we've done and they fall over, or fall back up against the wood trim of the window of the slide and they will leave marks and scuff the wood. Maybe the implication that we're terrible MH drivers is true, I can accept that.

Thank you for the ideas! I knew there would be some great answers here. Appreciate the help!
