Photo of Booth Seating

Hello,
I would like to see some pictures of the booth type seating and eating
arrangement used in the MH or trailers. DO they have any that convert
into a bed. I want to change mine from the two chairs and pull out table
to the booth set up. (1985 325 MH)

Any help or advise would be welcome
Thanks ODD

Here's a photo of my dinette project I just completed this year. We used it for the first time a couple of weeks ago and it worked out great.

Here is a thread that documents the trials I went through to make this But it was worth it.

Good luck and keep us posted on your progress!

Here's an excellent web site with tons of interior pictures:

http://argosytrailer.com/

Also, an "interiors" forum search for "dinette" turns up a number of conversion projects mentioned in various threads.

Good Luck,

Steve

Here is the dinette redo on our 77 minuet and the original. The table is narrower than the original. Instead of having the table drop to complete the bed conversion, we use 4 precut pieces of clear fir - making the bed conversion sturdier and easy.

Dinette

I gotta take a picture of the bed with the back cushions in place on the table top and made up...but you'll get the idea.

Booth ???? replys

Thanks everyone for your fast replys.
I believer mine will have to be like "thenewkid64" as thats what
I had visioned.

We were in Brooksville, FL @ Clover Leaf Campgound for first two
weeks of march and then went south to Palmetto at the "frog creek"
for the last two weeks of march.

Does your booth make into a bed?

Again thanks to everyone for the replys

I do not know if it does or not. That is a picture off another site, I just remember that the early 80's 280's had a booth setup. I do believe the same booth materials were used in the early 80's 32 foot trailers, so you may be able to get one of those from salvage and cut it down to the necessary width to make it fit.

I know of a resource in Orlando that may be able to get you a booth for 2 that makes into a twin bed, but I do not know the cost.

Finally shot the dinette in the bed set-up. The two small triangular cushions under the window are stowed when it's in the dinette position.

Shari,
Me being a purist; I must say that I LOVE your dinette work! It looks totally original! Good job.
As soon as I can give more Karma, you are first on my list!
