2000 Sea Breeze Dinette Remodel

We are planning on taking out the old dinette and replacing with credenza and chairs. That's not the problem....problem being the soda does not have sides, no arms on sofa. Has anyone done this before and used the original sofa? Would like to know what to do with the sofa side that will beside the table and chairs. Need to make some kind of wall, not sure at this point what to do. We don't want to buy a new sofa. We just had it recovered. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!

Can you build a half wall next to the sofa... That's all I got.

Best

Thanks for responding! Yes I could, but not sure of how to secure it. Can't secure to sofa because it moves when coming out into a bed. Only places would be the side wall and the floor, making a wall to the contours of the sofa. But My wife leans up against the existing back of the dinette, just like you would against an sofa arm. Not sure what I will do. Hopefully there will be more ideas people will share. Thanks again

Any chance you can post some pictures? I will look tomorrow, but I think my sofa is attached to the dinette, or at least they share a stub wall. Either way, I will look at it and see if I can take any pictures that may help.

There is no connection between the bench or the sofa. Sofa does not have an arm. When pulled out lays flat. Here is a pic. I think what I will do, at least at this point, will make a small wall that will be connected to the credenza which will give it support. .....like making a small arm on the sofa but will not be attached to it so that the sofa will move freely when using it as a bed. Let me know what you think! Thanks for responding!! Any ideas can help!

Well, after looking at our Dolphin I have to report that ours is just like yours. The sofa armrest was confusing me, but it only has a long metal bar attached that slides between the sofa and the back of the dinette bench. So, just like you, if we ever remove the dinette, a small stub wall will be needed to give the sofa goers something to lean their pillows on!

I would think a 2x2 wall attached to the floor and slide wall would work. It could be padded and covered in a matching fabric. Or, what about replacing the sofa with 2 recliners? I know that takes away all of the extra beds, but you know the saying about RV's, "Drinks for 6, dinner for 4, only sleeps 2"! You could always use an air mattress on the floor. . .

Let us all know what you decide to do. Sorry if I misled you, but I really did think there was a small wall there. BTW, my wife said she really, really, likes the sliding drawers beneath the dinette benches. She said to make SURE your wife gave you permission to remove so much valuable space!

Bruce

Don't want to get rid of our sofa. Just had it covered. Tell your wife that the valuable space will be replaced in the credenza that I will make in place of the bench dinette. It will be approximately 12" wide, length of the existing bench dinette with drawers and two large doors with shelves so there will be more storage. That is why I was saying I would attach the small wall to the credenza. This will stabilize my knee wall. The credenza will have a free floating table top. I know you have seen this in newer MH that have table and chairs instead of bench seating. Thanks so much for your help. IRV2 is wonderful to have. People are ready to help their fellow rv'ers!!!!!! Thanks again! I will post sometime in the spring when his is completed.

That looks great! My wifey worries about losing storage when discussing a project like yours, but you took care of that. Great job, keep us posted when the floors are finished.
