308RES Dining Table Rotation

I am in the process of rotating my Dining Table. It will be lengthwise against the wall in front of the window instead of perpendicular. This makes it easier to pass by the table when the main bump-out slide is inside and in storage mode. Also, it is just my wife and I and we don't really need seating for 4 most of the time.

Anyway, I'm looking for a different mounting arrangement other than the screwed into the floor method.

I'm looking for an easy way of attaching it to the wall under the window. And then, when we need to rotate it back, quickly unhitch it and rotate it back.

Anybody got any ideas of how to attach it to the wall securely and yet be easily undone to be rotated? I expect to do some wood work, etc.

Thanks for any ideas.

Lee

How about a hinge. Substitute the hinge pin with a quick release clevis pin. Just have to make sure that the wall has something solid to attach half the hinge to.

308RES Dining Table Rotation

I'm assuming you have a booth not a table and chairs. If not please disregard. My suggestion is to buy the sequoia table leg system with 2 extra bases. I would fit a 3/4 inch piece of plywood on the floor in the booth and mount the 4 bases in a cross pattern so either way the table legs fit in the base. That way it's not connected to the wall. If you're curious about the idea and it's not clear enough let me know. Good Luck

Thanks, I like this idea. I'll work on it. The Table has a 7/8" square piece of Oak around the outside underneath of it. So I'd have to look at hinges with removable pins that will fit that.

Jwedell, I have a table and 4 chairs, not a booth.

I'll see if I can attach a photo.....

308RES Dining Table Rotation

In the Keystone Montana Fifth wheels they have a table that turns like you want (I had one). You may want to look into it. Just a suggestion. If you like it maybe you can buy one.

Thanks jwedell, I looked at that. Nice idea as well.
But what I need to accomplish by rotating the table is to move it off the center axis and back against the wall.
That is what gives me more isle space, which is what I need.
Otherwise, I could just rotate it and screw it back down into the floor.

I appreciate the ideas, thank you.

Oh, I understood the video that it slid towards the chairs but I guess it could go either way. Still a neat concept.

Sash window latches would work well to anchor to the wall. Good luck whatever you do!

just re legs that you have and add regular table legs and then scoot the table in and out as you need it and get rid of 2 of your chairs. ot buy a table with 2 legs or 4 legs that will fit in the space. I know that Lowe's and Home depot sell table legs that you can attach to tables perhaps that si what you can do, and just stain or paint the legs as you want
