We have a 2013 Vibe 6501.
Glad that you were able to get the table out.
We also have an issue with installing the table in-between the benches. I have found it better to sit the table on the outside end of the bench rails and slide it (horizontally) in between the benches from the kitchen area.
I redesigned the front end on our 6501 to install much needed additional storage. I went to Lowe's and purchased a kitchen cabinet that was 30" high and the same width as the space between the bench slide rails. Then I removed the plywood slide from the bottom of the table as well as removed the post pockets from the slide. Then I removed both post pockets from the floor.
Then I installed the cabinet between the benches and slid it all the way forward. Using a couple screws, I secured it to the bench rails.
Using my table saw, I made a box that fit into the top of the cabinet and secured it to the bottom of the table. (make sure to calculate the height of the box to correspond with the height of the re-installed table post). Using scrap wood, I installed a bumper board across the top of the cabinet at the back (front of trailer). I also installed 2 steel dowels on the box that insert into holes in that bumper board.
Then, using the cabinet door as a guide, I re-installed 1 post at a location that allows the door to open all the way by attaching the pockets to the bottom of the table and the floor.
Now I can put my foot against the single post and lift on the end of the table. It comes up easily. Lift a little more so the box clears the cabinet top,slide back to clear the steel dowels and then lift it off. Much easier.
Plus, This adds needed storage in space that is otherwise useless.
The table top still fits nicely between the benches and the usable bed space is the same. Just use the 2 longer cushion to cover the table. The 2 shorter cushions are not needed.
The TT isn't here at home right now but as soon as I can, I'll take pictures and add them to this thread.
