Trading the booth for a dining table


Okay, I didn't think it would be this big of a deal. I want to take out the booth style dining table and replace it with a dining room table. 

Most of the newer 5th wheels have tables instead of booths so I figured I would just go to the camper dealer and buy one. 

They are no where to be found! 

Does anyone know where you can buy the table and chairs they use in the newer campers?

there are several types and styles to choose from at the RV salvage places in and around Northern Indiana. Doesn't help you though unless you are traveling through or nearby because shipping would probably be out of the question.
If your coming this way, let me know and I can give you some directions.

Dang.  Your timing is lousy.  We had one, but only with two chairs.  We are buying a new one for our coach of a different style and was going to sell our old one.  However, the wife has promised it to a nephew.

Sorry.  However, you might check Craigslist, but I suggest that if you find something, do a face to face in a safe place for the exchange of merchandise for cash.

Otherwise, look for a manufacturer that sells coaches with that style of table and see if the dealer can order just the table and chairs.  Be prepared for what seems to be an outlandish price.  (We ordered our new table from the manufacturer of our brand of coach.)

You don't necessarily have to buy one that is made for RVs.  We have some friends that bought a wonderful dining table and chairs at Target.

It works great and looks great and very inexpensive.

I hope you find what you are looking for.

Good idea Linda! Who says it has to be made for an RV?

You don't HAVE to have an RV table. You can use one that fits, but you found at a consignment or thrift store. We did in our old 5W and it worked just fine. As long as it fits your space, go for it!

There are quite a few stores in Elkhart, Indiana that sell used RV furniture in big warehouses. Do a google search for them. Of course, then you will have shipping charges added to the price.

Colaw RV Salvage in Missouri sells LOTS of used RV furniture & replacement parts. We've stopped often to check out their inventory. It's a great selection and VERY reasonably priced.

And here's a link to an Amish RV furniture make near Elkhart that has a really neat collapsible table

Miller's Amazing Magic Table

http://www.amazingmagictable.com/twodesk.htm

 

I did some research a couple years ago and found this site.  We wanted a desk in the coach, but later I came up with a different solution and didn't purchase, so I can't comment on the Magic Table, but wanted to share the link.

We have the desk and table combination from the Amazing Table website. It's great. The dining area now serves multiple functions. Eating, working and crafting and more eating....

I removed the booth from our last TT. Left the table but removed those awful low seats. Found some nice wood foldup chairs at Wally World. It was much nicer when done and had more room. I ended up wainscoting the wall with some oak wainscoting and trim to cover the holes in the wall and re-did the floor with laminate to eliminate those holes as well. No sense in going half way...

My last coach I had the booth removed and had a coran type table chairs and cabinets installed.....Total 795.00.......campers Inn in Kingston NH




I only did it this way because I wanted the coach to be in original form as close to factory I could get........Im with linda tho , Target or an off price furniture outlet would do it cheaply and I would say you could farther down the line by finding a remnant coran counter top cut down to go under the window and a couple of small book cases and you would be so close to perfect for less!!!
