Convert side dinette to swivel chairs.

Never liked the seating on my side dinette, very uncomfortable.

Very Happy with the results. Very comfortable seating now and they swivel.

Looks very nice and well-integrated. Does the velcro mean you can remove the seats easily to make an extra bunk? If so, it looks like you have the advantage of the Freedom layout without any of its disadvantages. This one goes in my "Ideas" folder. Thanks for sharing, Kevin!

Yes
I can remove the seats easily to make an extra bunk and to get to lower storage compartment on the right side.
This should be an option on all trailers with a side dinette.

I have two of the Casita swivel chairs that I bought to install in our Uhaul. Only was able to fit one in. Now that we also own a Casita LD with the side dinette I was wondering if those chairs would fit using that mounting method. I thought that the Casitas that came with the swivel chairs had a smaller table.

I really like that. I have been considering taking the uncomfortable jack knife sofa out of our LIL Snoozy and putting in a dinette with swivel chairs. This looks like a good way to do it. I would have to reconfigure the water tank and build boxes.
