Storage of free standing dinette chairs during transport

Hello to all. Just bought a 20014 Blue Ridge 3025 RL last month and so far we are really enjoying it. When we picked up from the dealer, they couldn't remember how to of the dinette chairs were stored during transport. As of now, the 2 near the entry door are strapped down. The movable island is strapped down on the other side of the dinette and the two other chairs are resting on the couch. I'm concerned about causing damage to the couch and the chairs. Any and all advice on how you secured the chairs would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.

I don't have the 3025 but I thought the rolling island was held in place by locking the wheels and the glides being pulled in while traveling.

Do you use the dinette much?
Only had the trailer out one time and never used ours.
We spent most of the time running around, outside or in the recliners.

Dinette Chair storage

Our 3025, 2 chairs are side by side strapped each side of table - after you secure the island, shift the two chairs (fore/aft) that come close to the island, then tighten strap before bringing the slide in.

in my Coachman, the chairs are stacked with one upside down on top of another and strapped down in pairs. No wooden parts contact any other.

Are your chairs the folding ones?

We tried turning the table but it is really tippy if someone puts weight on the long side, so we turned it back. If it weren't so tippy I'd love to see it this way; easier to get around it. Our chairs are strapped to each other and the table pedestal for travel. But font forget to snap the snap on the table extension! If you don't it WILL come out during travel and crash to the floor - for real!
