As a newbie to the site, I figure it's time for me to throw in my 2 cents. I am in the process of adding a front dinette to the front of my '87 UHaul
13 footer. Attached are two pictures:
Right now, it's my wife, myself, and our baby (Rosie, our 50 # lap dog). We figured this would be the most efficient use of space in our UHaul
, allowing us to leave the rear bed made up full-time and still allowing a two-person dinette for eating. It also gave us a place to set the TV. In our UHaul
, the bunk is attached to its hinge by several bolts. I simply removed those bolts and the bunk, leaving the hinge (that's what the TV shelf is mounted on). I then cut a piece of plywood for the table, screwed a small piece of 2X4 to the bottom of it to receive one end of a 1/2" steel tube, and screwed another piece of 1X2 to the side of the camper on which the other end of the table rests. The only thing left is to make the cushions. We haven't taken the camper out since I built the table, but I imagine it will work well once we do.
