Dinette mods pic ideas please...
I have a 2013 Dutchman 265BHS. With the slide out it has a typical
dinette. It 82" wide. With a U-Shape seating with It could seat "6" in
a pinch. 2 of the sides and mounted next to the side of the slide out
and the outside wall. Which leaves a wafer thin wall coming out
perpendicular from the slide-out outside wall. I have repaired the wall
countless times as it gets hit by me or the teenagers and comes unscre
from the base or wall.
I am a serious wood worker and thus have the skills. So I am consider
removing this wafer wall and replacing it with a 1/2 Baltic birch or 2
sided veneer with oak or birch. Making a nice quality topper on the back
Then since it will be a mess already. Replace the seat cushions since they
just a little softer than cement. DW can sew up some nice cover and backs for them to make them more comfortable and appealing.
Finally the table. It has to go.....! It attached by 2 post which is always moving, as if we were on a cruise ship at high seas. I going remove the
post holes and replace it a homemade table out of walnut or maple which
will fold up and place in the same spot during travel.
I know it will add some weight, at most I figure about 35 - 50#. Since I
am towing it with a one ton new Ram 3500 I am not to worry about another 50#.
Any who have done this and have ideas and pictures I would love to hear
your comments and see pics.
