Dinette vs table/chairs

I am taking out one bench seat from the dinette and replacing it with chairs. Could someone tell me how much (or how little) room I will need between the wall and the table?

If the legs and back of your chair is fairly straight and there are no arms, you should have a minimum of 18". This will allow a person with a medium build to sit comfortably and not be right up against the table. If you have more, so much the better.

Measure the distance from the edge of the dinette table to the wall (or any window treatments that protrude from the wall). Put a table the same distance from a wall (not necessarily in the RV). Put a chair in the space and try sitting in it. That will give you an idea how comfortable it will be before you start ripping anything out.

Thanks, Richvkansas.
Good idea, LadyFitz!
I also realized that the table slides on the track on the wall so I can always scoot it over toward the remaining bench since it probably won't be used that much.

Take a small table and a chair similar to what you want to use and set it up near a wall and work with it to determine what meets your needs.

Hmmm... That's sounds familiar.

I have finished my project and I am tickled pink! I only needed to ask hubby for some muscle one time, too.

Louise, We have a dinette version as well and I appreciate the storage area under the bench seats and that it converts to a bed for the occasional GK. Just curious why you opted to give up some storage for the chair? Good looking conversion, BTW. Thanks, Bob

Yes, I liked the storage BUT my back did not like the 4" of foam. I get uncomfortable too quickly and a chair doesn't do that for me. You notice I only took out one side cause the bench doesn't bother my hubby. And gkids;....we still have the hideabed and the floor.......
