If I had a larger camper with a dedicated sofa I wouldn't really like the dinette but in my smaller roo I think it is awesome. It has been a table for eating or using the laptop, it has been a huge extra bed when needed, and best of all it is an awesome day lounge when I throw a bunch of pillows on it in the bed position. I don't know how else I could get this much utility in this little space.

If I had the space I would vote theater sofa and a table/chairs setup.

Hate them!
Had one in our 1st camper, a Coleman popup, and it was uncomfortable.
We made sure our 2nd trailer, a TrailManor 3124 KS, did not have one and it was exactly the reason we purchased our Rockwood 2109s.
Like many other 2109s owners, we replaced the heavy factory table with a lighter plastic top table.

We like our little dinette! I'm a manager of a group of 14 folks and we're working 24/7/365 so I keep my laptop on it so I can check into my work e-mail. (I know public wifi's are notoriously unsafe but I use a secure end-to-end connection by using encryption and a OTP, one-time-password, authenticator.)

It's also perfect for playing cards and eating plus it's a pretty big sleeping area for the grandkids and the storage underneath is very useful.

So how do you folks with the wooden table and chairs secure it all for traveling?

Love my dinette, like the low storage it has under the seats plus no chairs moving around while going down the road. Thats why they make white and black autos.,,,,to each his own.

We have u-shaped dinette and it's ok but I wish they would've put the table about 3 inches farther out. We have to take the cushions out to get an adult to squeeze around to the back and even then it's a tight fit.
