Dinette table mod question

We have a new 274dbh. When sitting at the dinette table it rocks back and forth every time you touch it. I cannot see anyway to adjust it. Any ideas on a mod to get it more sturdy?

Do a search for dinette mods. There are lots of ideas. I think for yours with the 2 removable posts, someone added a 3rd post to form a triangular post arrangement for more stability.

I'm going to add a 3rd leg to see if that helps

My dinette isn't the U shape. If just has a bench on each side with the square table. I don't really have room for a third leg

I removed the two table legs that came with my unit and replaced them with these Sequoia Table Legs from Camping World:

Quite the improvement!

Did the sequoia legs require additional drilling in the floor or did they fit in the factory spots? Here my current setup that wobbles a lot. Click image for larger version

I put the new floor pieces over the existing holes and they covered them for the most part. I didn't use the exact same screw holes because I wanted to ensure a tight fitting for the new brackets. The flooring around the few holes that didn't get covered were flattened with my hammer (strategic taps) and are not noticeable at all. Even when I went back to it and tried looking for them. I have a vinyl type flooring and it responded well to my hammer :-)

How about one in the front like factory and 1 in each corner next to the wall? That way the added posts would be out of the way.
