A factory front dinette is only available on deluxe (wood interior) models. Is that what youíre looking at?
They will build several variations of the no-bath 13í deluxe. One is layout A shown on the website with front dinette and a storage cabinet in the corner next to the stove, which makes into a child-size bed. Two is the same without the storage cabinet, which makes into an adult-sized bed. Three is the sofa/bunks similar to standard versions.
It is also possible to take a sofa/bunk unit and modify it into a dinette in such a way that preserves the upper bunk for 3-way function (sofa, dinette, double bunks). Youíll have to do it yourself, though. Here what that looks like in an older 13í standard.
I personally find the sofa more comfortable for sitting due to the angled backrest. A dinette, with small, slippery cushions and a bolt-upright backrest, isnít comfortable for much longer than it takes to eat a meal. We usually eat outside, and if the weather isnít cooperating, we set up the rear table.
I havenít done it, but others have installed a Lagun swing-away table mount to eat at the front sofa without modification to the factory bench or cushions. That allows the rear dinette to be left as a permanent bed.
