Replacing dinette with table and chairs

I am seriously considering removing the U shaped dinette in my Class C. I just takes up too much space. Under the forward and rear facing benches are some serious metal supports made from 1 inch square tubing and bolted to the floor. The seat belts are attached to these.

I am guessing that these are only for the seat belts and do not provide any support for anything else. They are not attached to the sidewall. Is there any harm in removing these?

Guessing is probably not the best method. I would crawl under and locate the other end of the bolt. My "guess" is there is a possibility that body mounts or something that hangs underneath may use the bolts as well.
On my last Class A I had the table and it had problems as well. The table was to high and it allowed for a space that could only accommodate one use. I was in the process of building a table and "Office space" as a replacement. I sold the motor home before I finished the project and since I had purchased the supplies and started the build, I decided to finish it and sell it to the highest bidder as a table without stain. (unfinished) This is going to be nice, it allows for seating of 2 when pushed in or four when out. It has a file drawer for filing and two more for miscellaneous items as well as a slide out for the laptop.
