Ok guys, I am going to get the trailer tomorrow. I had planned to do it today but life got in the way. I'll take photos of the before and after plus how I move the electric receptacle to a surface mount.

Hearing about the eyelets and straps makes me think that perhaps I will forgo that for now and see how things go.

BTW, no chair covers came with the set but I imagine I could use a pillow case to accomplish the same thing eh?

We wrap a bungee cord around the four chair legs where they meet under the table. This provides some stability and the have always stayed put when travelling

I had the same issue in a previous fifth wheel that had the booth dinette. I took the cushions to an upholstery shop and had the foam replaced with a more dense foam. Was a 1000% improvement. Cost about $100 to replace the foam but was well worth it. I took the sofa cushions and had the same foam put in them as well. I forgot the weight of the foam but it was pretty heavy. I never knew that weight was the key and not the thickness. I just replaced the four inch foam with heavier four inch foam.

I'd love to know the place you took the sofa cushions to. That's my next project.

So I jumped the gun and went and got after it today instead. The booth setup came out easily with minimal leftover evidence it had been there. The new stuff went in easily (as you can imagine). All I have to do is mount the power and faster stuff down.

Here are a few photos:

Great job! Looks like it came from the factory that way.

Your install looks great. The new setup fits your space well.

You did a great job! I think it makes the space look larger!
