Dinette for 1964 Overlander

I was wondering if anyone has a picture of a 1964 Overlander or similar model with a dinette in the front of the trailer. I currently have a front gaucho and was interested in swithching over. It looks like it would be more practical. I have seen side tables mounted on the street side. I have seen only one picture of a 64 Overlander with a front dinette but it was on a trailer for sale on Craigs list and there wasn't a lot of detail. Any help would be appreciated.

try this:

Here's what I did, with links to Uve's and Carlos' threads. We're happy with it -- about 5000 miles of testing so far.

good idea--look at as many pics as possibe. also look at has some amazing dinettes that inspired my build design. it will come down to you and your trailer though as every build has specific needs.

here's a link to my dinette for a 56 BUBBLE that i just got finished last week:

becasuse the interior has so many different radius's you're going to have to do a ton of measuring, fitting, with carboard then with cheap plywood then with your expensive finish wood. I found that getting my table hardware in first worked well. then you can drop the table down to it's bed position, support it, and take a square to the floor and mark out where your bench supports need to come out to. then figure out your bench side radius to the walls, and build the crazy thing. it's a lot of work--but i like how mine came out. make sure you figure out the heights of your table and seats--before and after coushins as you want it comfortable-- and your back coushins need to be the perfect size when you make it into a bed. plan the heck out of it on graph paper and then start measuring. it will keep you up at night mulling over things for about a week once you start! enjoy--ted

Dinette Photos

Yes, that would be great. Do you have any dimensions? Could you show the dinette in sleeping position? How does it relate to the jalouise window?
