A unit with table and metal folding chairs, might have been done by a PO.
Mine had a booth table and 2 benches, I removed the forward bench, but sometimes will carry the 2 wooden folding chairs that came with the unit. Those with the extended table leaf is very nice for more than 2 of us.
I've seen photos of tables removed and a wall bankette with a couple of loose chairs, that allow both chairs to face the window.
Front axle weights have not been an issue I've ever read on the early coaches, of the 90's- early 2000's. I have weighted a number of times, and have lots of load range left, with the tire size and load range letter. Maybe more amazing is the right/left equal balanced each time I have weighted. My U295 is the smaller engine, and 3060R transmission, than on the 320's.
Yes a retarder heats the transmission fluid, but it's never been an issue for me in 55,000 miles, yet. The gauge is there to show temp, and the 6 position joystick allows you to back out of the retarder if you need. The 6 position stick, is like down hill speed control.
The transmission computer is set up to lock out the retarder if temps ever go too high. Love the quiet nature of the retarder and it works all the way to the 10mph default when it disengages.
There is so much info and those with way more knowledge on the owner's group site. Good luck in your search.
