Smile Front dinette mod.

Since I got the idea from this forum thought I'd post the results. We were originally going to move from a 13' to 16' camper. But for our needs a front dinette seemed practical and cheaper than a new (used) camper. So out came the bunk & cut the center out of the front bench. Framed it in with 3/4 pine & used the plywood from the bunk for the table top. Drop leaf hardware came from Rockler. Oh yea, also tiled the floor. Thanks for the ideas.

(Hope the pictures post correctly. 1st time attempt)

I couldn't take it any more.. had to rotate the pics..

Q: Do you have cushions? How is the leg room?
Q: Is there still storage under the (lowered) table? Any pics of that?

What would really be cool is if you could manage a short video of the raising and lowering of the table.

Nice job indeed.

Love this mod! I've bookmarked this thread for future use. I too would love to see it with cushions and how your table setup works.

Did you have a particular post with instructions that you followed to do this? Link? Or did you have the knowledge to just go ahead and do it on your own?How do you cut the fiberglass and then cover the raw edges?

I've been doing some repairs and cleanup to my own trailer today but thought I better come inside while it is thundering and lightning. So that is a good time to research some future modifications.

There will definitely be a "mod" like that happening on my unit, as soon as I get it mounted back onto the frame!
