Has anyone ever removed their dinette seats and table?

Have a 2004 32' seabreeze model 1311 with 2 slides. The living room slide, slides out the dining table and kitchen. I want to remove the dining table and booths and put in a love seat or double recliner. Has anyone ever done this? Would recite any feedback, pros or cons.

We have an XLR 27 HFS with one u shaped dinette slide. We removed the dinette and put two reclinning Lazyboy chairs and an endtable in their place.

Down side: Losing the storage under the dinette booths.
Up side: Way way more comfortable and worth it!

Was thinking about ordering these two in the same color. And replacing my sleeper couch and putting the double recliner where the dinette is now.

If you remove the kitchen table, where will you eat?

Grandpadave, Sir; The factory sofa that came in your coach, is it a jackknife type sofa and is it 68 inches wide and still in good shape? If so and you are thinking about getting rid of it, Please let me know! Thank You.

Well, we rarely use it. The double recliners has a tray table with drink holder on each side and we have an adjustable table that can be put up between couch and double love-seat. When we camp we are the kind of campers that are barely inside. But will keep the dinette in my building in case one day we sell and somebody wants a table.

Dave, my sister and BIL did this about a month ago. They had their booth removed and installed a La-z-boy reclining loveseat in the space. The only "issue" they had was that their slide is not a level-floor type, so the loveseat sits up pretty high in the slide causing foot-dangle. Fortunately the recliner footrest makes that a non-issue most of the time. My sister stows a folding table behind the loveseat for occasional use, but most of the time they eat on TV trays or outside on a picnic table, so they are happy with the setup.

Thanks Sarah for the input, that did cross my mind.
