New dinette going in; new floor, too!

So, the old 37 year-old dinette was right on the verge of collapsing, and the storage was impossible to get to through the tambour doors under the table. I tried to use the same dimensions as the old dinette, while making it both light and sturdier than the old one.

Here's where it is right now; the dinette end panels and table are still in the cabinet shop, but the dinette is all my own lame attempt at beautiful craftsmanship.

The floor is that cranky but attractkve "snap together" Allure vinyl.

More pictures as progress happens.

Looking good.
Just a thought while youíre in the construction phase.
My TW came with a front couch and a narrow shelf under the window. If you can still add a shelf youíll find it greatly increases the functionality of the space.
When I built the dinette I added an inch to the new shelf and put 110VAC and a 12VDC power outlet into the support panels underneath.
How we can plug in a toaster or other appliance for breakfast, and, charge cell phones and I Pads without taking up the limited counter space.

Good Luck,
Tom

More progress....

Dinette with the end panels and table. The cabinet door next to the open trailer door is for weight-distributing arms and chocks.

What kind of hardware did you use to attach the table to the AS?

You know, I just used the hardware off the old table, That's the leg off the old table, too. The new table is like half and inch bigger than the old table, and the hardware still works exactly the same.

I would have loved to use some super-hydraulic marine grade table lift, but it wasn't in the budget.
