Dinette vs Computer Work Station

Were in the market for a newer DP than we currently have. Weve had our coach for 4 years and have put 40,000 miles on it so we feel like we know the floor plan that suits us.

I spend a lot of my indoor time sitting at our booth dinette and cant imagine being comfortable sitting at a computer work station. Plus we really have no need for a dedicated work station.

In my search for a Tiffin Allegro Red or a Newmar Ventana, Im constantly bypassing any coach with the work station, some that I really like. Frustrating!

So, my question is, is it feasible to take out the work station and install a booth dinette? Were thinking we can afford a coach between a 2015 & 2018.

Funny you should come up with this Idea

Your idea for a dinette booth is a good one

We recently removed the computer work station in our rig and the plan for this winter is to put in cabinet for pop up TV and an electric Fireplace for ambiance and heat if needed ( we have an available circuit and will run a dedicated circuit for the fireplace)

And will continue to use our existing dining table

Hope to post pictures as things progress this winter

wish i'd gone the other way.

When I bought mine last year they had both. I went with the computer desk and file cabinets. Wish we had gone with the both. Think i'll call the gent and see if he still has it. be patient something will come up that will fit your needs. My desk set was an after thought. If you can go oneway, i'm sure you could go the other. Good Luck.

Yes, it’s feasible. You can do anything you want with the interior. Just find someone who has experience doing so. Take a trip to Indiana. Lots of options there.
