Replace Bench Seats

Just inquiring about replacing my bench type seating arrangement to a fold out table with 2 chairs.I own a Georgie Boy Pursuit 32 ft. The bench type set is on a slide out. We are an older couple and we don't need a bench type arrangement and was just wondering if it's a big involvement. I'm pretty handy with building and repairing.
If anyone has done this can you let me know if it can be done.

I have the same rig you do (or nearly-2006 32' Pursuit) and I suspect it will be a problem. I have something (converter?) under the forward seat that would have to be relocated plus you lose the storage.
Instead, we've replaced the couch/love seat with two quality Captains chairs (rocker bases). Very comfortable and with the small "Magic" table between them they provide a comfortable seating arrangement.
We plan on adding a shelf with storage under at the height of the seat backs. It will be about a foot wide and provide two small files plus a place to store the computers (we both use the table as an office).

Don't know your space limitations, but I remodeled mine a couple of years ago. took out the bench seats, table, and sofa sleeper to make more accommodating arrangement.

I like what you did...was the bench set up on a slide and I wonder if the slide is a problem. Did you custom make the new unit?

He is a couple of WIP photos. The "desk/table" was where the booth was. The slide floor is about six inches deeper there. The pedestal consists of one 24" base cabinet in front where I installed the bench seat sliding storage units. Behind that is a 12" inverted base unit. I had to remount the drawer, it just wouldn't work against the table top!

The credenza is a 24" base unit. I put sliding shelf in in all the units for access. Also installs a slider in the main kitchen base unit for much better access to pots and pans.

The table top in my first post is 3/4" plywood with Formica type laminate, edged with 3/4" popular which gives it a nice natural color.

All units are stock unfinished oak cabinets from Lowes. I think I did every thing for ~$800, for sure under a grand. Price a Corian table top to match the kitchen and it would have been $1,100 and that did not include the credenza.

We both use our computers lot and this has been the greatest thing remodel we could have done for usability, and removing the carpet the best thing for our sanity!

The slide was no problem. I have to use strips of MDF under it for the vinyl floor, but that has nothing to do with the cabinets.

HDossett,
That's a really neat setup but it looks to take more space than we've got in a Pursuit slide. Has the cabinet been a problem for knee's?

No, I have a 12 inch overhang on the table top and also a few inches over hang over the belt to protect the knees.

The pull out drawers are great! These were under the bench seats, I just cut about six inches off the back ends.
