73 Safari Dinette

The goucho and foldout table has never been a good dining solution for me. I redid the front end of my Overlander 8 years ago and really liked the dinette benches--very comfortable. So I'm going to try and duplicate that in my Burning Man Safari, as well as modify the counter and sink to provide more cooking prep space. This will require the street side bench to seat only one person.

First step, the goucho is gone.

The next step will be to build the new counter cabinets and install the oven and sink, so the next post will not be tomorrow...

It's been awhile. The kitchen oven/sink cabinet was installed last summer. The overhead cabinet is well on its way. I needed to glue in the sliding door rail in place so I would get the angle exactly right (about 1/2 degree off from 90, rats). But to do so I needed screw clamps with a reach of almost 12". No hab. But finding a piece of 7/16 threaded rod made DIY clamps a snap.

As soon as I get this cabinet finished, the dinette is sure to follow.

Still needs a little structural work on the skin at the right end, but the cabinet itself is functional. Now for the dinette--single seat on the kitchen side double seat on the door side.

This was the original dinette design from my Overlander. It turned out to be an excellent fit and very comfortable. I may make some slight mods, eg, seat about 1" higher and perhaps optimize the space behind the seats. The fun part of the Overlander project was the extensible table with no leg. It does require some modification of the front skin panel--additional stringers--to provide sufficient stiffness. Anyway, I'm glad I found this original drawing, it will save oodles of time.
