I wanted to double the seating capacity and table size of our camper’s dinette.
First, I removed the center of the dinette and the 24-inch by 25-inch table. Then I moved the table leg support location (see above – moved post closer to wall).
Next, I fabricated a new table that is 24-inches by 42-inches from an old pallet. I purchased a vintage camper table wall bracket ($21) and a stain/polyester combination to finish the table ($14).
A bonus is that I don’t need to remove the table to bring in the slide anymore. Plus, I was able to use the Azdel from the section of the booth that I removed to fabricate a table for a rear bumper mount barbecue.
This mod has been excellent! I am 100-percent happy. It took me eight hours to complete this modification and cost me less than $40. In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is medium.
