The table & chairs was part of what we wanted when we were looking at new rigs. The table can be moved. This makes it nice for cards or games. We had dinner for 6. Two people were sitting on the couch and the other 4 used the chairs. Our previous rig had the banquette. Plenty of storage but a pain to access as it did not have the pull-out and DH had not modified it. The benches were not comfortable to sit on - especially for 4. If we were camping with others, we either ate outside if the weather allowed - or at our friends rig.

Very nice man!

How much do you charge for this upgrade? Can you start it yesterday?

Sincerely jealous!

I live whatever my wife decides on. I had to remove the booth back before the days of slides. It was not too hard. I replaced it with a Euro recliner and a folding table. I save the booth and reinstalled it before trading it which was a good idea.

We prefer the booth. Used to have a booth in a house when I was a kid. Always ask for a booth when at a diner.
Here's why...for us;
-It is comfy and wide seating for 2 plus seating 4 is possible.
-Wouldn't want to lose the storage under the bench.
-We don't use the bed function, but could if needed.

The best part of RV's is that you can have it your way...booth, table, desk, or couch and TV Table.

Safe travels

My being "bigger than the average bear", I don't do well with booths.
Still gathering ideas for my Ford van conversion - the table with chairs looks best for this old bear..... ;-)

We also debated the issue mainly because of the sleeping accommodation when our grandchildren travel with us. However majority of the time it's only the two of us so we went with the free standing table and chairs. When then bought a single blow up mattress to supplement our sleeping capacity when needed. The grandson likes it better than the dinette...it's way more comfortable.

BTW.... we have had both and like the table and chairs. We can move the table and there are leafs stored inside that pull out making it bigger. Can set in living room for more formal setting or card playing etc...

Our last two MH were table and chairs. Our new 2014 Phaeton is the U Booth and we love it. The cubboards beneath the table and chairs meant you had to get down on your knees to get or store anything. The Booth has slide out drawers much easier. Besides it was time for change.

Has anyone ever thought of a Japanese table with built in heater and sitting on the floor? Just tossing out food for thought...

Table and chairs are preferred, but this time we opted for a dinette. The storage under the benches was preferable to the more upscale look of table and chairs. Our 40' MH lacks the storage capacity of our 40' 5er, which had a table and chairs.

If you like the free-standing chairs, how do you like to brace them when you hit the road?
