Replacing the table... have you done it??

Since buying our Bounder two years ago, the cheap looking metal leg on the dining table has irritated the heck out of me. (#firstworldproblems) We really like the booth setup and don't want to go to a table and chairs, so replacement options are limited. Recently I discovered this website with some very nice looking wood RV tables... CLICK HERE!!

I'm thinking of removing our OEM table and replacing it with one of the wood models, while leaving the booth seats. I'm going over to the storage facility today to take measurements to see which replacement will work best. I'd like some opinions...does this sound like a hare-brained idea?

If you have done something similar, please post a pic!!

Not a hare brain idea. Our table isn't solid wood, but the formica matches and it doesn't justify a change. Also, the table leg is wood and it folds allowing to make an emergency bed.

Looking at the link, I really like the solid wood but do not care for the freestanding aspect...don't really want to loose the fold down bed option. If you feel the same, you could have a woodshop custom build a table top and wood folding leg. Also, if the attaching hardware at the wall is good, you could have the shop reuse that as well. If you think you'll never use the bed, those tables look to be a great alternative and you could probably have it stained to match.

Our current tabletop matches, too...but removing it wouldn't bother me. Luckily our dinette converts into a bed by jack-knifing the two benches; the table top is not part of the bed support so it wouldn't matter if it were removed. (And we have never had occasion to use it as a bed.)

I might check with some local woodworkers to see what they can do. Thanks for your input!!

That's pretty neat...haven't seen that type of bench before. Looks like you have plenty of options to play with.

I went to the storage facility yesterday and measured the existing table top. To get something similar in size (24 x 41"), my options are a bit more limited. I'm going to call the RV furniture company tomorrow to see if they can send me samples of the wood finish so I can get one that looks like it belongs in there.

if you have leg room, get a nice turned post. Hinge it on the table and cantilever it to the wall. I have a table that is that way.

Hi, Ernie...and thanks for the recommendation. (I love the floor in your pic.) We considered a wall mount table like yours, but unfortunately the support arm would interfere with the jack-knife conversion to a bed. We have not used the bed and probably never will...but when it comes time to sell/trade the coach I would prefer that everything works as designed.

The wood table was received from RVFurniture.com yesterday; it turned out great! We took it to the Bounder last night, so the only pics I could get are with the slide in and in poor lighting. Really happy with the table...






Here's the table that was removed (and will be put back in if/when we ever trade the Bounder.)

In our old coach, we removed one of the bench seat and added a double folding table and a recliner. Later on, I removed the remaining bench seat. We enjoyed it much more. I did have some trouble getting the bench seats out the door and had to dissemble them a little to do it. I saved it all and reassembled it all when we were ready to trade it in. The heater ducts were involved in the bench seat and had to be dealt with. All in all it was a great project that increased our enjoyment a lot. It was not a project beyond the average do it yourselfer.

We really like our booth benches and didn't want loose chairs to deal with, so I was looking for a replacement table solution. I just HATED that cheesy looking table with the one metal leg. I couldn't put a 4-legged table there because the legs would block the seating. Dan at RVFurniture.com helped me choose a pedestal and made sure the table would fit in available space.

When it comes time to trade the Bounder, we will put the OEM table back.

We placed a small circular hook on the wall and then I made a long bungee cord that I wrapped around the chair and footstool for traveling. It only took about 30 seconds to set up for traveling. Worked out well.
