We have many we prefer the U-shaped booth. If it were 4 or less...definitely would have table. I am considering a add on slide out bench to go under the cushions on the dinette so we have more TV watching room at night or bad weather.

Done it both ways. Hated my dinette in one of my Tiffins' as it had no room between the table and the seat. First we had a narrower custom table built. Finally changed in to free standing but kept the booth so I could install if next owner desired it. Just bought a 29DS Class A Mirada and it has a booth dinette. We are keeping this one as the room between seating and the table is awesome.
My only complaint is that you can't see the mid-ships TV from one side. Looking into a strategic mirror location.

Maybe I missed something here.

We are the same like the booth alot better. The number one problem is storage and booths give you a little more of it. Of course we live in our M/H 6 mos. a year.

We love the table and chairs setup. Have owned a lot of RVs but our Flagstsaff 27 is the first w/ this. I took out two chairs and put a Lazy Boy recliner in. NICE!

Wink Neither booth nor table

We purchased a preowned 17' trailer which had the dinette (booth) removed. In its place was a counter with a preformed butcherblock pattern...2 rolling office style chairs to sit at the counter...we loved it! So when we purchased a preowned F.R.Flagstaff this year, we tore out the booth & installed the same style countertop (6') long--used a narrow plank flooring for the finish, & put the same flooring over the original vinyl floor. It looks great!! Now, if we could just get our house sold, we plan to be fulltimers!!

I prefer the booth because we feel the extra storage is a big bonus, we also prefer not to have to secure the table and chairs before moving.

Smile How to fit in a Lazy-boy?

Big Lacey

We have a 27rlws also. I am intrigued as to how you fit a Lazy-boy in the dinette area. Do you have any pics??
