Weekend Project installed Dream Dinette

Our 09 Suncruiser had one and it was the one thing we really missed so we put one in ourselves. No more stick to deal with....woo hoo! Ordered the mechanism from Cass Hudson, reinforced the wall with half inch plywood. A little adjusting and a decorative board to keep table at the right height and we were in business. Instructions were good.

No one can appreciate your job more than I since we have the identical unit. I like it. Is there anyway to call Winnie and see if they have any of the wall-board that you can put over the plywood? That would look ultra great. Where did you get the finished wood piece that goes between the table and the wall? That looks great. Congrats on a job well done. Oh, may I ask how much for the bracket assembly and where did you buy it?
Thanks.

Ordered it from Cass Hudson and it was $150.00 plus shipping. Not really worried about covering the plywood as you only see it when the table is down, it shows alittle brighter in the pic because of the flash but blends in really well in person, if it starts to bug me I will do a faux finish. Oak wood piece my husband made the original brackets are screwed and glued and some of the wallboard cover comes off when removing.

OK, we want one! Our Journey came with the table & chairs, but we prefer the booth. Does Cass Hudson supply the whole thing, or just the table? If not, did you fabricate the booth, or buy it?

The booth was already in place with the table all we changed was the mechanism that moves the table up and down where normally there is a stick holding up the table. Here is a before pick...if you look hard you can see the stick. LOL

Here's a place that sells it, they have some pictures of just the mechanism.

Pro Fish Enterprises

Saw the Dream Dinette when Damon first started using them. Thought about adding one. Our cat's travel pen fits under our dinette now. Wouldn't with a dream dinette, kept me from doing it. Good to see it can be easily done!

Did the instructions call for the wall to be reinforced or was that your idea. Thank you for posting it now I know how to get rid of my loose table top.

Nice work. I was thinking of replacing the sofa in mine, but have no idea how I'd get it in, the door just isn't wide enough.

Yes both the instructions and Winnebago suggested the wall be reinforced unless you known it already is.
