Options for replacing dinette?

My 25' moho has a u-shaped dinette which I detest. It is a monsterous waste of space. As a single full-timer I would like to replace the dinette with a table, 2 chairs and maybe a desk or storage.

Anyone have any ideas or pictures of dinette replacements?

I get on ebay and look at the used motorhomes they have for sale. They always have lots of pictures of the inside in those adds. Thats where I get alot of my ideas from.

Barb.
This is the way we went, small only 30"x30" but the front folds out to 48".

Light weight too.

Only took one day to remove booth and assemble table and chairs.

On my previous coach we replaced the entire dinette (table and couch). We put in a wrap around but could have gone with chairs if the DW would have wanted that. We had it done in Elkhart Indiana. We had the flooring replaced too or else I would have replaced the dinette myself. We bought the Dinette and table from Brad & Hall in Elkhart and they are on line with a catalog. The table is an Oak Amish built table and we had 2 leafs (table top extensions) ordered and built for it.

you may lose storage space under the dinette seats. you may also have to do something about the heater and/or converter. they are both under the aft seat in our rv.

Took some pics to show the new table and chairs I mentioned earlier.
We made up for the loss of storage by going to Lowes and buying stock kitchen cabinets, spring hinges and they matched the rest of the wood.

Well, if you were closer I'd say take it to Dave and LJ's in Woodland WA. They do nice work. Their father started the firm but he retired and the boys opened their own place.

Thanks for the ideas. Since my plan is to make this my last home (I'm 61 and retired) I want to make this RV as user friendly as possible. I may have to have a cabinet maker help me.

I envision a really comfortable swivel recliner, a desk/table and a tall cabinet with shelves behind the driver's seat. Luckily, there are no plumbing or HVAC systems under the current dinette.

Before you start you had better look under it. They love to put wiring, heaters and anything else under there to hide it.

Love what you guys did! We have been toying with the idea of putting in a desk and work area. We have no storaget in that area but usually use tv trays to eat from and sit where its more comfortable.
