As traveling empty nesters, the OEM dinette design in our Jay Feather 24T just wasn't working for us:
1. It was very uncomfortable
2. Took up too much room
3. It didn't work well with our computers
4. We would NEVER use it for sleeping
5. And, well... it was butt ugly
we decided to tear it out and start from scratch with a totally new design.
We needed comfortable seating, so we bought 2 upholstered chairs from Ikea and I fabricated a custom cherry top stained to match the cherry veneer in the trailer. The difference is striking and so much more workable, being able to use our computers, and eat our meals as well.
Here is a fabrication and installation video:
