New Recliner and Dinette Table

Finally have my project, to remove the dinette and seating (curbside) and replace it with a recliner and a small custom made table that is smaller and also folds out of the way, almost completed. I still have some work to do on the table support leg.

Thanks to the inspiration of Russ and Linda (Luckyducks) and Doug and Cheryl (dkottum) and their projects to make their seating a little more comfortable, I was able to muddle my way through to this project.

And I could not have done it without the help from Tom Montgomery (alumitator). He provided me with dimensions, pictures and drawings, plus sources for the table top. Thanks so much Tom!

And, of course, the input of many members of the forum, too many to mention specifically, who provided their individual contributions.

It seems like it has taken all summer to complete because of finding a wet floor (and repairing the plywood) which led to sealing the backend of the trailer and then replacing the entire floor before getting back to my original goal.

We are hitting the road this week so we will see how everything works out.

My dear wife would prefer the redesign you guys did with two recliners. But with a 25FB model removing the street side seating means having to relocate the furnace. That was more of a project than I am able to tackle.

IIRC you had your remodel done at JC. As I mentioned, your project was an inspiration to make the changes I did. Thanks!

Looking good. I have the same recliner waiting in the wings with matched Ultraleather. A&P will be doing the work for us. I'm having second thoughts about a custom table built vs just reworking the existing hickory table in our Classic. We are currently in Glacier National Park and the table always has some stuff on it; iPads, computer, salt and pepper, paper towel holder etc so I doubt if I would ever fold down the table according to this past two weeks on the road.

Hans, we are alsolooking at a mod - and it would include a table like you have. Do you have any measurements / drawings for the table, and if so, could you email them (anders79@comcast.net). Like your mod!

I see you purchased the Lambright recliner and I am wondering if you just ordered one or did you go to a store or the manufacturer in Indiana to pick it up. We are considering ordering them but wondered if it is wise to buy without trying it out first? And very nice looking remodel too!
Thanks,
Debi

Love the recliner

Can you tell us the brand of your recliner. We've been looking for something similar, and it looks like the right size for trailer life.

I ordered it directly from Lambright and I spoke directly with Vernon Lambright. The phone number is (260) 768-4820. They do not have email or a website but they are great to deal with. It was shipped directly to my house which cost about $150. I specified the material, Ultraleather, and the color.

I'm about 5'10" and weigh 195 pounds and it fits me nicely. It's not as big as a standard recliner, of course, but it fits the space nicely and is certainly more comfortable than the dinette seating that was there. We are leaving tomorrow on a 10 day trip and I'll more experience with it after the trip.

And thanks for the complement. If I can help in anyway just let me know and I'll try my best!

In answer to your question please see my previous post. I see you are in Alaska which may add a considerable amount to the shipping cost. But they would most likely ship there as mine came by FEDEX.

It is the "right" size for a travel trailer.

Yes I would be glad to share what I have. We will be traveling all day tomorrow and I'm not sure when we will have internet capabilities but when I can I'll send an email to you.

Thanks! It was a lot of work but it came out better than I expected!

for kcbwil, I have also been looking online for these recliners and you can go to this website and see the recliners and all the options and colors, etc. They sent me color swatches of the ultraleather also. Lambright recliner
The store is Bradd and Hall and they sell quality RV furniture. The pricing is about the same as buying from Lambright. If we buy, we will call Vernon back directly and order from them. I like being able to order from the man who builds it!

This is perfect! I just installed a Lambright recliner in my 25' FB and want to build and install a table very similar to yours. I thought about a free standing drop leaf folding table, but then you have to store it somewhere when underway...

If you could PM me the plans you drew up for the table I'd be eternally grateful!
