That's true. The mechanism is designed for the booth style dinette that also drops down for a bed. Mine has a free standing table that I have to permanently remove the legs and then attach the mechanism to the bottom of the table and the wall.

Mine's a U-dinette so the Dream Dinette's out. Also, some folks with the pedestals complain about being loose. The table's OK when up; my problem was getting it up and down. So at this point, now that I've loosened up the mechanism, we'll see how well it goes.

Had same table problem. Crazy design and not well made. After it broke, did the same thing as others here. Reinforced the whole contraption, removed pads on the bottom, and secured it to the floor permanently. We don't use the dinette for a bed anyway. Rides well, and is fairly stable. So far, has held up.

Last night was the very rare exception when we needed ours to make the bed. My wife took 3 grandkids out driveway camping.
For RR people the table is a problem as it has to be moved to get the toys in and it only folds halfway down. Many of us need the main bed to sleep on at Walmarts etc when we travel, so there's no where to put the table.
If I needed a bed setup at the rear of the RR I would rebuild the seats into one of the pull out beds like on the ones on Pinterest. I have been thinking about it as I only put 1 bike in and leave one seat down when travelling.
I'll be keen to see other people's mods/fixes for this table.
