I find raising and lowering the rear table in my 13 foot Scamp
difficult. I do not have the reach of most people and far too many years working in manufacturing have doomed my back to allot of lower back pain. Things I don't have to deal with if the bed is kept down. Even though we have a front dinette cut in we have only used it as a table just a few times and mostly just for added counter space. 99.9% of the time we outside or off site. The only entertaining we do is the pretty constant charging of peoples electronic gadgets.
We have yet to experience a serious rain festival needing long term hunkering inside that may need more inside space.
The one thing I would change first if I needed the rear table. I would trash the factory table top and replace it with a piece of honeycomb panel. Twice as stiff with less than half the weight
. Probably 4 or more times the cost though. Still cheaper than a back doctor.
