I’m in love with the teak table. If it’s more functional then that’s great too. Did I read that you reused the mechanism that bolts to bottom of table?

Cushions from 22' Bambi

Yes I am willing to sell them, but know that they are not cheap. Have you checked with the Mothership so you know how much they are?

Yes, but I also know that the price of an AS 10 months after it rolls of a lot is also not close to the same as a brand new one...and even a bigger difference after the warranty expires, which the cushions would lack.

I suppose if you are expecting to sell them at MSRP we wouldn’t need to continue the discussion. As if I was looking to pay full price I would have bought them already

No I never said anything about full price. I just wanted you to know they are expensive, and that I will not be giving them away, especially since they look brand new. These are the leather ones, not fabric.

Yeah it's great, and the lipped edge to safely keep items from sliding off is fantastic too. Just an error by Airstream in it's original table selection. I had found the perfect air mattress (Exped Duo 10M) that fit the space exactly so as not to burden the factory cushions (which made a nice lounge couch with the back cushions), only to find that the table still presented me with an uneven surface for the mattress. I started shopping for a smaller teak table and found the perfect size.

But to answer your question... yes I used the same holes of the mechanism as a template to carefully drill the pilot holes in the new tabletop bottom. It pushes down "almost" completely flush as it's edges no longer rest on the wood benches like the original. The pedestal's design has it's lowest "hard stop" that prevents it from being exactly flush, but it is so close that I didn't want to take the extra time of attempting to modify it.

I can sell dinette, telescoping table and/or cushions. I have all listed in Airstream classifieds under the parts section. I have pictures there also.

My wife and I did it almost immediately in our 2016 22' Bambi Sport. The back support is ridiculously weak so we removed the seating area, kept table but re-centered it and put in two swivel barrel chairs. It far more functional now. I don't see anyone throwing a dinner party and needing seating for six in their little Bambi trailer. So, yes, I would make it work for you and yours!

Removing table from Sport 22 ft.

I just need to know if the only thing holding the table in place are the screws in the telescoping mechanism that go into the floor.
I don't want to be suprised by some bolt in the undercarriage that I cannot get at.
The table is huge and worthless, sad to say, and I just want to remove it.

It was just screwed to the floor. I removed it with a drill.

Go for it! Nothing is in the way. We pulled the settee out completely and used two barrel swivel chairs divided by the original table. We turned the table 90 degrees for space and function. Table is only held by screws, nothing else. MUCH better now!
