Freestanding chairs makes it feel like a more normal table.
Not sure where Baxter is located (snip)
I'm the exact opposite regarding the dinette vs the freestanding table. I'm 5'10" with a 34" inseam, so the legs are long. I have a heck of a time getting under the table and always bang myself on the lip underneath. I've not had any problems in the dinettes in the motor homes, TT and 5w's I've looked at.
Hey G&BOlsen - my dad (Norv) lives in Brainerd and his late girlfriend (Lorraine) was from Baxter (she died last April). I know your neck of the woods a bit. If you go to any of the senior dances around there, you might have met him at some point. He goes to a bunch of 'em. (But heck if I know how old you two are! You might be just as bored as I was at the one I went to.)
