Here are some pictures of my table. The pedestal was the only answer I could find. It works great and the table is very stable.

so the cross bar of the T is under your feet when sitting at the table.

I've wondered about different style legs or even a different table altogether.

We could save that one for times when a grand child might go with us
and use a different table for times we're alone (which is most of the time).

Any suggestions besides just going to furniture stores and trying to find
a tiny table?
this idea isn't about changing to different legs or to a different table, but how we changed/improved our original table in a way that fits our use of it,
we have the U shaped dinette also, and because its just the two of us, we didn't need the dinette bed option,
but we did want a little more room on the table top to accommodate two laptops, eating space and all those other things that just seem to end up on the table,
I made a "cap" that extended the table top to the back cushion of the middle sitting area,
the photos show the "before" and "after", this is our second trailer with the same U shaped dinette and I've done this mod to both, we like it this way

Thanks so much for all the suggestions! I'm sure others are watching too!

In our case-- it's looking like removing the original legs and installing 4
screw on legs might be our best option. That or make a new table with
screw on legs.
We've got a bit of a unique situation. Our U shape dinette is in a rather
deep slide. When we're on the road we take the table and fold the legs
and stick it upside down on one end of the U. This leaves the center
floor space open where we can store our one recliner.
This means a permanent pedestal is out.
We have thought about removing the U dinette completely and getting
table and chairs but that would not leave us room to store the recliner
and our U dinette has tons of storage room under it that all would be lost
if removed....

I'm leaning towards a slightly smaller table with 4 legs or just modify mine
by removing those well made but in your way T legs and adding 4 corner
legs.

I will be having 6 at the table on different occasions. I want to have a temporary extension on the other side and use two folding stools while we eat, then put everything away afterwards.

We could fit 5 at the table but only bring 4 chairs. Game night recently the women were at the table and guys had tv stands in the living room. Still, prefer just us and 2 guests at a time.
