Thanks for the link, looks great! How were your booths attached to the floor? I've been toying with the idea of buying it with the dinette and booth setup and removing the booth that backs up to the couch and just replacing one side with chairs. I like the removeable table that comes standard (especially because we are planning on removing the table for a pack-n-play crib for the next 2 years), but would like the chairs for me.

I had one with a booth. Last 2 had tables/chairs. I would never go back. Much more versatile and comfortable.
No problems with rubbing or movement.

We've had both and there are things about each that I like and dislike. Table/chair is the current arrangement. My biggest complaint has been echoed, it's cramped. Looks classy but cramped. The bungee is also a pain (we're empty nesters).
Who uses the bungee? Or not?

We had the booth in our previous TT, and I took out the bench next to the couch and used card table chairs. On the new Jayco, I got the table and chairs, but hated the chairs. They look good, but they are too big and bulky, so I went back to the card table chairs that fold away easily while traveling. In fact, we only use the couch side for chairs, and we have a small freezer on the other side.

We had booth in pervious trailer and have table and chairs in current one. Much prefer table and chairs as I was always cramped in the booth.

We only keep two chairs in the trailer, along with a card table chair or two. We keep canned food and other items in boxes designed for 24 bottles of beer on the floor under the table against the slide wall. We also store our trash can there when traveling. So there is really more usable space under the freestanding table. Our table is fastened to
the floor.

We don't fasten the chairs down when we travel and have no trouble with them
moving around.

You didn't indicate which trailer you have or plan to get, or how many people will
normally be living in it. This will have a lot to do with your decision.

We are leaning towards the Jay Flight 26BHS. Its my wife and I, 2 year old daughter and a new son will be coming in December. We don't use the dinette in our current trailer, mainly because its too small and a pain in the neck to get into.

I'm thinking for a couple of years we will need to have the kids inside eating breakfast and lunch, because it'll be too distracting to eat outside with all the action going on around us.

Our 1st trailer had a booth. The Jayco has table and chairs. Our Bungalow Had a booth but we got rid or it and got table and chairs. The table and chairs seem to fit our lifestyle better.

Thinking of taking out the booth and making an L shaped bench with a coffee/dining table that folds up.

We don't have a couch, but we do have the U dinette. The table is freestanding and I usually use it outside for stuff. It is to cramped inside except in the bed position. A tv tray table works much better inside as a table. There is just 2 of us and that set up works great.
This coming weekend, son and family of 3 women are joining us. I may have a different story come Monday.
