White Hawk Dinette Bench Strengthened
I was MOD HAPPY today fixing, tweaking and upgrading things to my liking on my new trailer.
I noticed on the maiden voyage that the plywood under the dinette benches had a lot of give in them when seated. Upon investigation, I found the plywood was already bowing lengthwise because there is only support on two sides! What the heck were they thinking???
Off to the Home Center to buy some wood. Basically, I bought a few 8' furring strips (1"x3") and framed in the seat area and added a cross member in the middle. The benches are much stronger now and have no sag at all. Cost was minimal, as the furring strips were $.90 each and a box of screws was a couple bucks.
