Where did you get the table from!

I love that table could you tell me where you got it from. Thanks Mandi

Hi there! These are pictures of our remodeled Lil Bigfoot. You are right, the table is off center to make it easier to get into the seat past the corner of the kitchen counter. The street side seat has storage area behind it, accessed by lifting the counter top. We use it for extra bedding or heavy coats that we don't need often. Both seats have storage under them also. Just lift the seat cushion and the seat support to access. The table was purchased at an RV supply stor and is flat on the backside so before installing, my husband had to make a filler to fit the curve of the trailer. Then put a little shlf on the top where we keep little stuff--pencils, cards, keys stc.

I'm not sure I know what you mean by "non notched frame", but the floor has about a 4 inch step up across the front of the trailer. The table is flat against the wall in the stored position and the top slides up and then lays out to make the eating surface.

For the seat backs, my husband built (for lack of a better explanation) curved "ladders" that fit the shape of the trailer walls. Then I upholstered them using a roll and tuck method, stapling each roll to a step of the "ladder" from the back. After finishing off all the edges, we used industrial strength Velcro to hold them in place. We wrapped each seat back in a plastic bag, open end at the bottom, slid the back into place (snug fit)then pulled the plastic up and off the seat backs. The Velcro stuck to the wall fabric and hasn't budged since. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can answer any more questions. Bonnie

Yvon as you can see in the pics of that mod, I cut the table on a angle so you could get in and out easily. I'm sure if this is something you want to do, you will be able to figure out a way to do it. Ken James inspired me to make my front dinette. And I think he has some post of the one he made also. Any questions you can pm me and I'll be glad to help if I can be of any. Tim
Hey Tim, long time no talk. I haven't noticed you posting lately, but maybe I missed them. I've shared your front dinette design numerous times. I still haven't decided whether to do it or not. But I love it.
