Fantastic! You've done a beautiful job and I'm sure left nothing behind under the cushions, behind the seat back..... like they do a JC!

Reply to table support and converter access

The space between the seat tops is 24" and the table is about 27" wide so the table rests on the top of the seats. It is plenty sturdy. Access to under and around the seat bases is pretty simple. The top to the seats come off completely. In the pictures you will see the seat bases before the laminate was applied and you can see how the corners are filled with extra plywood. (There is extra plywood in the corners on the bottom as well and that is where the seats are screwed in to the floor) Velcro is applied to the seat bases at the corners and to the seat to keep them from slipping out of place. They come up easily with a little tug. Also in the pictures you can see how the converter is accessed. It is pretty simple. In the finished product we used the cover for the converter that was originally there but just ran it between the seat bases, not all the way across. That is easily unscrewed if total access is needed.
The seat depth is 34" and with the 5"foam cushion backs it give you 29" seating space. I like a nice wide seat for curling up to watch TV or read.
Hope this was helpful for you.

Beautiful!!! I love it! I am looking for one of the foldup tables that attaches to the wall in front of the gaucho if anyone knows a source or has one to sell. Your dinette is gorgeous. Nice job.

Very nice! I'm trying to think up a way to keep the gaucho and have a small dinette in my 29'er. This is great looking!
