Standalone Dinette Set

Can any of you folks who have the standalone dining table and four chairs in an Eagle HT describe a little about the set? I'm interested in knowing its dimensions, how it's anchored for traveling, whether there's storage under the chair seats, over quality, and if the table extends, etc.

Thanks

The table extends in our 351RLSA, so they are available if you're inquiring to see about converting yours.

Thank you both for your replies. Yes, we're considering swapping out but I'm kicking myself for not paying the extra $ when I ordered the trailer. Seems like there's only about 40" available lengthwise else when the slide retracts, the table would interfere with the storage cabinets. That's why I asked if the table itself extends.

We have the 4 chair setup in out trailer. Its ok, we find the table which is screwed to the floor wiggles/shakes quite easily. Also we do not try and move the chairs when sitting down or standing up, we slide into them,as you would in a booth. There is not enough space to move the chairs and then slide them under you as you sit.

That is valuable info, thanks... I like the storage the standard dinette set offers under the seats but I find it uncomfortable to sit for very long on those foam cushions. Now that you mention it, there isn't a whole lot of room between the table and the seats so I guess it wouldn't be much different with moveable chairs.

We like the chair and table set because you can easily pull the chairs out to change up the seating inside the camper. I was able to almost eliminate the table shake by tightening the screws that mount the table to the slide floor (they were fairly loose when I checked them). The table top is 40x26, height is 29. The underside has an apron that limits your leg room between the seat and the bottom of the table. It could easily be raised up with shims under the pedestal. There are no tie down points for the chairs. They seem to travel fine free standing. We offset the backs slightly so they won't rub each other or the wall in transit.

SawBuck,

Thanks for the info on the dimensions... now I see how the slide can close completely without interference. I also didn't know the table was a pedestal type so that should give you a little more free access to the seating.

Do you find the seats comfortable for sitting more than 15 mins?

Yes, the cushions are plush but firm enough not to bottom out after sitting on them for a while. They also make a decent ottoman for the couch too. :-)

Here's what we use for an ottoman... found it on Amazon. It folds up and fits easily between the side of the sofa and the wall on the slide. It's lightweight and sturdy enough to hold me up (200 lbs) while I put on my shoes. When you're finished camping, you simply collapse it, fold it and put it away. Works great!
