In the lower diagram above; the 2 rectangular items above the table are where the table "Clips" in to hold it to the wall. Note how the table just pivots on the "U" shaped bar from the upper to lower position.

When the table is on the ledge rail, what keeps it in place when traveling? Doesn't it bounce out?

Table moving.

Lindy; If you are talking about the rail where the table slides in from the end or side; it might move a little but I have never had one slide all the way out or even much more tha an inch. With the leg on the floor; if the table does move any the leg will cause it to bind in the track or rail and it won't move anymore.
I'm not sure about the "u" Shaped bracket since I don't have one but would assume that the latches are spring loaded or something to keep the table from bouncing out.

I have such a rail in mine Travel-mobile. At the table 2 buttons are to fix, he cannot slip away. It has never happened a little bit!

No, I was wondering how the setup from the guy in Bern was. It sounded like he just had a ledge that the table fit into. I was thinking perhaps I could bevel the edge of a piece of wood the width of the table (maybe 30 degree bevel), attach that to the wall with the bevel up, make another piece with the bevel down and attach that to the table then just put one inside the other. Problem is, how could I make it not bounce out when traveling? Any ideas?

We sort of lost our focus on building the dinette when we ran out of materials so we started on making a cabinet for the shelf that runs across the back of the trailer over the bed. And, we did it! Compound curves and all - thanks to your method of scribing to get the curves right. It is being stained and polyurathaned but we should be able to get it up in the next day or so. I'll post pictures when it's done.

I've ordered some grill material for the panels in the benches and, of course, it will take over a week to get here so that is yet another delay.

I do have a question though about the cushions that maybe you, or somebody else, can answer. The cushions will fit into the front curve of the trailer - not a problem for the SEAT cushion, but how do you make the seat back cushion in the curve? Or do you just not have a seat back there since nobody can really sit there anyway? Does that make sense? Maybe it just sort of falls into place and ends when it ends?

Also, is there a good source of 5" foam available on the internet that anybody knows about? I am over 3 hours away from a JoAnn's and the last foam I got there was really kind of wimpy and smushed down after a couple of years. I'd like something that is durable and will last because it is not my favorite thing to make seat cushions.

Cushions.

Question:

Answer:
In my situation the cushions don't go into the curved part at all. I'm going to be working in my trailer today. I'll make an attempt to get better photo's of how I made it work. I'll post them later today.

I had my cushions made by an upholstery shop. Not cheap!
Just type in "best foam for seat cushions" into Google.

Do you have an "Army/Navy Surplus" store around you? I know of a lady who used to buy her foam there. (Since I am in the business, I have a supplier I get all of mine from for wholesale pricing.) I would imagine shipping would not be cheap if you have to buy online, so I guess, considering you are in Colorado, I'd try to make certain the supplier would be on the West coast vs. East coast.

Our back cushions (look at the pic with the table down & the cushions made into a bed on my webpage) don't follow the curve either. We made ours with an angle, then have two wedge-shaped cushions to fill-in when we make it into a bed. You could also make rectangle backs and one larger rectangle filler cushion if you want. Another idea if you don't want filler panels I've seen is putting either snaps or velcro on the back of the cushions to keep them in place and follow the curve of the wall - but then the cushions have a "right" & "wrong" side.

I'm a little late to the game with these photos (referencing a few posts ago - hinged tableness). I have the hinge table (no U-thingee) and it's very slick. I lucked out and have the hinge and table. Not sure where to get them now.

Foam Mattress Pads Memory Foam Platform Beds & More seems to have good quality foam and have loads of info. Plus they'll custom build the foam for you for a nominal fee.

Hopefully these photos show you the table hinge in action, the shape of the back cushions, and how everything fits together. This is the original config (upgrade at water tank). The old blue cushion covers are long gone and the current ones are awaiting new upholstery.

Hope this helps. Good luck!
