To me, it's priorities. You can have people in a booth (belted) while moving, can't do that with a table. Also, many booths have tables that adjust, both vertically and horizontally so everyone can find the perfect fit. On the Country Coach line, they offer two different booths, the more traditional "J" booth (benches facing each other) and "U" booth, a 'C' shaped bench with a hexagonal table. The "U" booth set up is both comfortable and easier to play cards on.

X2. . We needed to be able to use the booth table while driving.

We have to vote for the booth. We have the four door refrig and could not get a pantry on the Winnebago 35 due to the wide refrig. The storage under the booth seats are very useful as we use it as a pantry.

+1 Our oldest son usually likes to sit at the table and read while we are driving and having the booth gives us a lot more sitting options (and most importantly lets us split the kids !) We also want / need the storage from the booth.

I do agree that chairs can be more comfortable than the booth and is easier to sit in and we do carry 2 folding chairs when we want extra / different seats.

I had a motorhome with a separate table and chairs and the chairs would move like crazy if not tied down.

I've traveled from Oregon to Georgia and have yet to have my table or chairs (4) to move a fraction of an inch. While I miss the storage option with the booth, I much prefer the table with actual chairs.

We have a table with one leaf, two regular chairs and two matching folding chairs. I prefer the versatility of the table, since it can be moved or made larger or smaller. We usually use the leaf and the two regular chairs. We eat all our meals at the table as well as using it for other things. Since we're in a toyhauler, the living area is not as spacious so a booth would just take up too much room. We use the folding chairs in the garage at a desk table and craft/sewing table. It's also nice to have the chairs for extra seating since they can be moved anywhere. I used to strap the chairs down while traveling, but don't do that anymore and they stay put just fine.

If I go to a restaurant I ask for a booth, why not on my RV?

I guess the booths in a restaurant are more roomy and people aren't walking around the back of you and bumping into your chairs?

If I have a table in my home, why not have one in my home on wheels?

I started this thread to get all kinds of input and I'm getting exactly what I wanted. I know there is no right or wrong answer definitively. I'm hearing all the pros and cons and taking it all in so I can look at the rigs differently from the time I walk in the door. Thank you for the input everyone. Keep them coming through all my threads.
