Need to replace gaucho with U-shaped dinette

What is the easiest way to search this site for drawings/pictures of converting my gaucho into a u shaped dinette. I have a 75 tradewind. I've been looking on this site the last couple days and seem to be going in circles. Any advice? Is there some where I can purchase a factory dinette? Thanks

working on mine now, will post pics soon, thanks to pizzachop for dimensions and lay out he did all the hard work. mine is somewhat different in that I am going to have curves in it along the bottom, and my construction method is a little different. Film at 11:00

We have a living quarters horse trailer and will just go with the dimensions of it. Rather simple to build with no curves. I wouldn't want to try one with curves LOL

I have a 1977 Tradewind with a factory dinette. Look at my photos under my profile on the side of this post as there are some of the dinette from different angles and one of the measurements.

Here's the way we did it:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f226...-15132-65.html

You'll have to go back thru the thread over the past year or so to see how we built it. Love it, The kids say it sleeps really well. I may sleep out there tonight to test it out myself.
