243RBS dinette question

Hi everyone!
I recently purchased a 2017 Surveyor 243RBS. It was a dealer leftover and brand new. (I traded in my 15 yr old TT for this one). While poking around the dinette I found a strap hidden under the far cushion. I'm guessing this somehow secures the table during transit? My question is how do you strap down the table? Photos would also be appreciated. Thanks for any help. Todd

243RBS dinette question

I’ve seen it flipped over table top directly on the cushions...legs up in the air. Pushed back against the wall/window and strapped in. Click image for larger version

We slid ours back, in the upright position, then strap it tight to the outside bench. Our strap is coming from the front to the back bench.

hidee ho

Our Surveyor 220 has the same setup and we hated that clunky, heavy and awkward table. We replaced it with an adjustable plastic table from Amazon or Walmart that works great, weighs next to nothing and can be put out of the way when not needed.
Happy Camping!!

The strap also holds the table in while collapsed for use as a bed or traveling.

Your trailer looks identical to mine except for bathroom door. Did you install the door? Ours has a regular door making bath access impossible with slide in.

The door on the 243RBS swings into the bathroom. Assuming you can get past the dinette at the kitchen counter and through the narrower opening at the bathroom door, you can get in there with the slide closed.

I was asking about the photo in pt1655's post. It is different than the 243RBS. My solid door swings out and cannot be opened with slide closed. No room in bath to open inward. Looking at photo, you can see a black strap on door I believe. Just wondering if that was aftermarket.

PT1655: We did the same but I removed the top that came with that table and stand and attached the original table to it so that it can still be used as a support for the bed and also matches the original setup. Nice that we can not fold up the table and move it to the bedroom area to gain comfortable leg room.
