Safari 25 FB...Dinette Eliminated!

Tore out the dinette in our Safari 25FB and replaced it with a couple of swivel rockers. Also took the two bottom cushions and glued the foam together with a 1/4" foam overlay to make a one piece cushion. Put a new wood piece with T-edging and woodgrain formica on the end of the settee with the furnace outlet replacing the ducting.

The end piece with the formica was $40, making two cushions into a single cushion $120 and used existing outdoor chairs to complete the conversion.

We use a folding table outside if there are no picnic tables or lap trays.

Yours looks nice....
We have considered modifying (narrowing) our table but have yet to come up with a totally satisfying solution. In the mean time we have added a cabinet that matches the wood with matching laminate top next to the door, wide enough for the Zip Dee chairs. AS we entertain, we probably will not totally remove the benches.

Addition of cabinet for ZipDee cChairs

My husband made this cabinet to store our chairs by taking out the bolster and part of the bench. He built the cabinet and then reinstalled the bench. Click image for larger version

Nice, looks like the original cabinets. No more bolster moving around and a great use of wasted space. I'm definitely building this. Thanks for the pics.

We replaced our table with a 9 inch narrower one ment for a bambi. We got a matching one from the factory.

We saw a photo somewhere of a dinette table converted to a drop-leaf design -- this allowed for the width to be adjusted depending on how you are using the space. Might have been on a European Airstream.

We are considering cutting the table down and putting it on a hinge to drop it when not in use.
