I do love the storage area from a booth, but it's kinda hard to move those seats for it.

Well it's either there or in the closet. There is a lid and a flapper so you can't see inside. Jerry.

we got a u shaped booth - sucks.
the table slips into the mounts on the floor - never completely solid or level. forget getting an adult in the back part of the booth. and i also end up with back pain sitting there for a few hours (rainy days, playing games, etc).
As for storage, the back part is too hard to access - maybe if we were FT we'd have need for it for something. The sides we keep a case of water in one and spare paper products in the other - could keep them other places if need be.

Just funnin' mind you.

I have cats too but they stay home and guard the house when we are gone.

On the original note; our Vlite has limited outside storage but has a nice amount of inside storage. So we use the under bench compartments for seldom(but may use at some time) items. I have a bad back and yes the bench cushions are not the most comfortable but I'm only there for a short time. When our grown son takes a trip with us, we put a memory foam topper on it to make the dinette a little more tolerable.

When we have visitors, we have taken the table top off and laid it on the bed so people can sit more comfortably in the surround booth.

We don't like the u shaped dinette, very uncomfortable, hard to get to the back seat no matter your size, and takes up too much space, would prefer a booth and with the extra space put in a storage cabinet.

We prefer the table and chairs, it's just the two of us normally so we just use a couple chairs. If we have company we raise the table leaf and grab the other chairs from the storage under the bed. This gives us wider space between the kitchen island and table.

Always thought I would never want a dinette, till we got one....this new trailer has it, and we love it. Much more comfortable, but as many others have said, it's just the two of us now, so that makes it easier. The booths make for a horrible bed, and if it is just the two of you, the booth is too crowded.

We have the booth

We have the booth in our rear kitchen flagstaff. We don't think our dogs would like it very much if we had the dinette. They both use the booth seats to watch what goes on outside and to sleep during the day.

our camper came with a booth after using it that way for the last 7 years we talked about taking out the booth and getting a table and 2cairs the thing that kept us from doing it was all the storage we would lose well the wife found a great table and we had the chairs so we started tearing things apart and found that the stuff in there wasn't nessary to have anymore so out it came and it looks so great we should have done it a long time ago
