What's your thoughts/preference on dinette style in the TC?
Wife and I have been looking to move from a TT to a TC, and one thing we would kind of like to have is a little bit of room to 'lounge' inside when the weather/conditions aren't great outside.
In the past we've had the 'face-to-face' style dinette in a couple TTs, and one with a big 'U' shaped dinette. Not a huge fan of the latter, but really not wild about the latter at all. Kinda liking the style that has kind of an 'L' shape to it, so when the table is taken down it's almost more like a couch. Haven't had a chance to actually sit in one configured like that, so it's possible we might end up hating it. Unfortunately, none of the local dealers carry any TCs at all, and used ones are pretty far and few between around here as well. As we've been 'shopping around', looking on CL, etc. it seems pretty random as to whether any particular brand/model/year has this 'L' style dinette - unless there is some method to the madness that we're missing?
In one TT (our most recent), we pulled out the dinette and replaced it with a nice table and chairs (still had couch and chairs for other seating options). Found that (at least in TTs) the dinettes aren't all that complicated - or well constructed - and easily within my capability to rebuild/reconstruct (have a small woodworking shop).
We were considering whether it'd be doable to remodel the dinette... but the campers that have the L style seem to have a longer, if narrower, area available compared to the ones with the face-to-face dinettes.
How big of a priority do you place on the dinette layout when shopping for a TC?
