Solera 24S - Size of Table That Goes With Sofa Option

Hi, I've just registered for the Forest River Forum, as we're about to buy our first FR motorhome, a new 2014 Solera 24S. We're so excited about it! This Forum has been very helpful already, and I thank everyone who shares on it.

One question: We find the dinette table a bit tight and are thinking about ordering a sofa instead. However, though we've found photos online of the sofa, we can't find photos of the table that can be added in front of the sofa. We see the fit for the pedestal on the floor, but not the table itself.

Does anyone have the couch with table in a 2014 Solera 24s? If so, could you post a photo of it, or tell us the dimensions of the table?

Thanks! We love the Solera and can't wait to place the order!

Marcia

Sorry, I think very few have the sofa instead of the dinette. Maybe BClemens will chime in on Monday. It is a great RV, I'm sure you will enjoy it.

Like Debbie I know you will love your Solera. I was also wondering about that sofa. Clemens stated in another post that the sofa is a 68" jack knife sofa but didn't state anything about the table. I was thinking of doing a mod on my Solera with it. Someone a while back posted a mod on their Solera with a couple of recliners in place of the dinette.

We just got a 24R with the sofa and table and the table measures 26" X 39".

Thanks so much for your responses. I'm not sure the sofa/table in the 24R is the same as in the 24S. Hopefully someone has the sofa and table in the 24S so we can be sure. Plan B is to select the dinette table and go on a diet.

Thanks again! I'll keep checking for more responses.

Table should be the same. We try and standardize where we can.

Thanks, bclemens. I didn't see a photo of the couch with table in front of it on the Solera 24S or 24R. Before placing an order, my husband and I are trying to figure out if the table would be the right size, height, and closeness to the couch to make for satisfactory eating and laptopping, or whether it's more like a coffee table arrangement.

Hi Michael, AnnLea and Blackjack,

I gather from bclemens' response the the sofa+table in the 24R is the same as in the 24S. My husband and I are still trying to decide which to get -- the dinette or sofa. Would you help us with answers to a few questions?

Primarily, is the table like a dinette table in height and distance from the sofa. That is, could we use if for meals or using laptops like a dinette table or is it too short (like a coffee table) or too far away from the couch (require too much leaning forward?)

Also, is it really quick to put the table up? Does the pole just fit into the table top and pedestal on the floor, or does it screw in? Is it a sturdy table?

I guess that's it. Thank you so much for taking time to helping newcomers like us!

2011 Solera 24S..We just recently took our dinette out and replaced it with a 67" Flexsteel model 4075-58EB Easy Bed sofa. We added a drawer and use it to replace the storage lost in the drawers in the dinette.

We bought a 20 X 40 inch fold in the middle table at Walmart and can move it around as we like. This arrangement works wel for us and we don't have to fret with a table being in the way. When not using the table, it's folded and placed on the over the cab bed.
