2601SS dinette question

We did not realize, until after we bought the Rockwood, that the dinette table must be folded up before travelling. All our other trailers had tables that were fixed in place. This would not be a problem if we were younger but at our age the table is difficult to manage. My question - Is there any way to secure the table in place so we wouldn't have to fold it up every time? Thanks for your help.

Saw a post somewhere (either here or on the Rockwood Owners Forum) where someone had addressed this issue by installing a strap that went from the edge of each bench seat and across the table top in order to stabilize it while travelling, without folding the table. Will try to find a link and post it later.

I just lean ours over so that the edge rests on one of the cushions, and the opposite side feet touch the wall under the cushion. Been doing this for 1 1/2 years now with no problems, and it's always in that same spot when we reach our destination. Table and cushions are in the super slide out, like most others. Randy

Another option is simply flip it over in it's spot, and let the feet stick up in the air. Then put the 2 extra cushions underneath the table Randy

When we had our 2601, we just left it up. Occasionally it would tip over but it pretty much stayed in place. One thing we did do was to put the night shade to the point where the metal grab rail was even with the height of the table.

But still, towed that trailer a lot of miles and never strapped it down or worried about it. Just stood it back up -- from leaning on the seat.

I agree with 08flag and hookup lean it over on the bench or just leave it go we never had an issue with it that way. Alot of time it ends up leaning on the bench if we leave it standing anyway

2601ss dinette question

Thanks for all your suggestions. I'll try leaning the table over before our next trip out in the spring. This is a great site.
