If the workmanship is good and wood & fabric match the original décor, I doubt you would significantly impact the resale value. If it didn't match and looked liked an after-thought, it might impact the future value. Dinette vs table & chairs is really just a personal preference. Switching wouldn't make the trailer less functional. And, the added plus you would get is storage under the benches!

If it is a seamless factory looking job it won't change the value. Anything less and yes it will. That being said....the resale value is so poor that after a couple years it really won't matter.

One of my sons slept on the floor with extra padding in our room. It didn't bother him, but five of us in our TT, with baggage, is quite crowded! I couldn't even clean up the TT for two weeks. Tonight hubby and I are going to the lake for the weekend so I can clean up!

Storage under the benches is what I would love to have. Our stolen TT had them, and I loved it! This one doesn't have it. We have a front kitchen, but our youngest son (6 feet tall) didn't want to sleep in the kitchen because my husband is an early riser. He preferred to sleep in our room When we had our old TT, no one camped with us. Then we traded it in for this one (same size), and all of a sudden, our sons start to go camping with us! If I had the foresight, we would have gotten a 5er!

Agree with OBX Forever....we have an XLite so there is very little storage. Those drawers under the benches are crucial. I would prefer a table and chairs but we couldn't possibly give the storage space.

I'd never give up the table/chairs for anything. Actually, two of the chairs never go with us. We bought the 5er for the 2 of us. If company wants to tag along, great the sofa makes into a bed or try the 2 recliners. If that doesn't work, sleep in my truck or get a room somewhere. BTW, as my mother used to say, "company is like fish. After 3 days both begin to stink".

Oh, I should add we bought this 32' camper for the TWO of us. There are no accommodations for anyond else, except the Jack knife sofa, which is sbout as comfortable as a bag of bricks. You want to go camping with us? Fine....tents are cheap!!

I agree with Wana and Grumpy. When we had a Class A, we took out the booth dinette and had custom table and chairs put in as it gave us more room for dining (table expanded to seat six). I don't believe it affected the value of the rig one way or another. Booth are usually standard in RVs, with table and chairs as $ option. If you are looking at the booth as an extra bed, then your guests must be kids or smurfs.

I concur with the general consensus. A table & 4 chairs is way more convenient &
more leg room. Those booth seats get really cramped. Also depending who is travelling with you. If it's your son (ours is 25 years old) we pitch a tent beside the trailer. Give him an extension cord & a light & he's happy. Sleeps half the day anyway.
