Very pretty jfb....I need a little bit of storage however....so the credenza idea still might work for us. Out of curiousity, how do you secure your table when you travel?

Thanks all for the compliments.

fixn2gocamp, There are a couple of ways to secure the table and chairs. We opted to use restraint straps attached to the floor using the seat blets mounts. Others we know of have drilled through the table legs and screw down into the floor. You mentioned storage space, we were concerned about that also, so as part of our remodel we removed the love seta on the kitchen slide, and installed boht a 48 inch credenza and a 37 inch LCD tv. For us, that's worked great. I have attached a PIC of the credenza and TV , and the modifications to the original TV location in the console above the dash. In doing the front tv modifications, we recovered storage in the compartment where the electrical components were originally located. Lynda says she hasn't lost any storage space.

This is just the thread I was looking for. I have a 2003 FW Storm, when the slide is in the booth dinette eats into the walk space and I have an idea to remove the booth dinette and install a round table (36" as suggested here) and 2 chairs. I love the picture of the round table and chairs, but gotta be careful how big they are....I only have a 75" x 40" space on the slide gobbled up by the booth dinette..

I still want the table space, need it since my galley is so small and tiny counter space.....and also want to be able to move the table and chairs out of the way to put a sleeping bag there if needed. I don't want to lose my sleeping capacity either. I put a twin air mattress on the existing dinette made into a bed and it fit perfectly for one adult.

This is a picture of the galley slide I want to remove that booth dinette.... doesn't look crowded when the slide is out, but when it's in, that dinette drives me crazy traveling......

I still need more analysis, but I'm now getting serious about that being my next major project.

That jack knife sofa gobbles up lots of floor space too, it's on the hatchet list too, but further down the money road when I can afford to put a regular sofa in....wish I knew somebody that wanted to trade one for this!

Looks great jfb...thanks for the pic, great job on that remodel. We only have one sofa, so don't want to remove it; don't watch tv anyway. Appreciate the tips on securing chairs however. We've talked to some people who just lay them down rather than bolting them down....might try that....hate to drill anything into the floor. Never know whats down there.

My chairs and table set right where they sit have never moved off the slide rug or tipped into cabinets of kitchen.
If they were on tiles than you would have a problem.
