Maggie,
We like your idea and are considering the same.
I also found that I can buy another pair of the cab seats as OEM take-offs on ebay for $229 plus shipping. Then buy appropriate height mounting stands.

I think, but not sure, that the nuts for the seat belt bolts can be accessed through the roof of the storage compartment. The holes in the compartment roof might be filled with foam.

We are going to have to decide what to do about the lost storage if we remove the dinette.

Snowman, I will post photo, but have to straighten things up first ��. The buckets we use hold canned goods and some cans go up in cupboard, which by the way is now accessible

As for the bolts, 2 are in storage compartment and were cut off. The other two were underneath the body and could be backed off enough to cut off. Hardened bolts!! And ours were already too rusty to work the nut off.

As I think I said before TL,,, GREAT JOB !!!
I believe I am going to try to replace out Dinette this Spring in our 2013 Sunseeker 2500TS,,, with a Sofa Bed,,, because we need the sleeping room,,, I love your recliners,,, But Sofa Bed with storage drawer would work better for us !!! Our Dinette is in a slide,,, so not sure if it possible to do as I want,,, when the snow melts I need to get out and see what it may take ??? If any one has done this,,, I would love your input !!!

My first thought was to not exceed the weight of the dinette if it is in a slide.

Here's the finished product we did in replacing the cheap dinette that was thrown together in our Salem Cruise Lite. It'll sit 2 people comfortable and provide a lot more storage space. Being it's just the two of us, we don't need the added sleeping space.

Ikea

For anyone considering doing the mod, try out the Markus office chair at IKEA. If we do the mod, those will be our chairs.
