Taking delivery beginning of April of '16 37KT, considering DIY project of replacing the table with a full width counter in this space, adjustable to both counter (eating) and desk heights (for computing and business purposes). Has anyone else done this or have any thoughts on this? Also kind of new at this, is this the right place for this question or should I start a new thread someplace else?

Have to disagree on this one. We love that table. Would take it with us to put into another MH if we ever switched to one that came with a dinette. Only hits bathroom door when slide is in, right? Why pull table out when slide is in? Not what it is designed for. Have occassionally eaten at table when slide is in, for example in a really tight lunch spot, but fits two fine without sliding or raising extensions.

Agree with Chuck though about the dumb clamp that holds the table down in the 2014 1/2 and later. We actually swapped out the tables in our traded-in 2013 for the new one because we liked the old attachment mechanism much better.

Glad to hear you are happy with table, just don't feel it makes sense for us and the way we live/work.

If table is a problem in travel mode - the metal plates can be moved around to suit. I did and am much happier. Now door hits carpet on slide edge and does not touch table. Moving table was a two-fer mod. It now allows us to keep table secured to floor with one leaf extended for daily use.
P.S. You can move table to front. Depending on size of people involved it offers a bit more room for moving around. We have served dinner to four adults in both rooms. Granted it's not like S&B for room but nobody complained in either room.

I do LOVE the pantry with pull out drawers/shelves! My coffee maker fits in there and my keurig coffee pod spinner rack and toaster over and electric fry pan plus tall boxes of cereal!

I would be careful how much weight you add since you are building on a slide-out. This is the perfect place for posting your Challenger idea. Welcome to the forum and hope you love your Challenger. If you are getting the new Ford 6-speed let us know how it drives.

IrihRed 02-23-2016 02:09 AM

The weight will be about 75 lbs. so I don't expect weight should be an issue.

WTY beyond one year
 
Highly recommend you go thru manuals and online product info for your new Challenger. Many systems and components have wty above and beyond one year provided by Thor. Some examples: Ford 3/36, furnace, water heater, TV antenna, range top and airconditioners two years, generator has 3 year or 2,000 hours, fantastic fan 2 year P&L and five years for parts and Jensen 212 dash radio is 15 months. I am sure there are others so look it up before you spend money.

Just received some pictures of our '16 37KT from friends at the Thor factory. (Hope I can figure out how to upload!) Goes to paint end of week for 2 weeks, some final finishing work and QC and off to us in FL! Getting excited as it is getting closer to reality!

Now that is cool, can you give specifics? And what do you use the bottles for?

RVredneck 03-05-2016 06:53 PM

Just custom made cabinets.
Use bottles for extra water while dry camping.

Great job, love what you have done. Did you take any photos while you were working on these upgrades.
