U Shaped Dinette vs Standard

We just initiated an order for a 2019 Red 37PA.

We initially went with the standard dinette but after seeing some photos of the U dinette I may want to make a change but I have questions.

Are the table sizes the same for both dinettes.

How is the table for the U dinette supported vs the standard dinette which has the sliding feature to lower the table to make a bed. We really donít need that feature.

There seems to be more leg room with the U dinette.

The seat back cushions look more comfortable.

Thanks for any advice as ther isnít any coachís near us that have the U dinette to look at.

I'm not familiar with that specific rig but in general, the u-shaped dinettes have the same sized table as the standard dinette. The u-type usually had 2 poles to support it- they sit in pockets in the floor and the poles have to be removed before making it into a bed. In my opinion, I don't like the u-type because it's very hard to scooch around in back. Children and physically fit adults may not have this problem. In addition, you'll have to stow the poles away to convert it...not real great.

Looking at photos of Red 33 and 37Pa at North Trail RV they order all U dinettes. From the photos the table is not supported by poles. I canít see in the photos how the table is supported but Iím guessing two heavy duty L brackets anchored to the slide wall.

Another question is the pull out drawers the same for the stand and U dinette.

We have had both Tiffins with U shaped dinette, they are just right for two people, a little tight for four. The table is not supported by poles but cantilevered from the wall with a steel bracket.
We like the u shaped dinette as they are no chairs to fiddle with and we were not impressed with the chairs sitting half on and half off the carpet in the MHs we looked at.
