Doesn't work so well on the U-shaped dinettes.

P

The floor is a lot heavier than the wall in sheet thickness. The wall is a sheet of luan backed by foam, the floor is at least 3/8"-1/2" MBF. Pilot drill your holes, you'll be fine.

What is under that incase I drill/screw past the floor? I'd at least want a 1/2" screw.

Not for certain in your unit, but at least a thin layer of insulation and some sort of fiberglass cloth to keep everthing in place. You don't want screws protruding, seal damage can result. Take an ice pick with slide open and gently probe from underside up. The GT has at least 1/2" flooring plus insulation. Base your screw length on your findings. Believe most sides when retracted can be measured under the carpet flaps for floor thickness.

Maybe I can do some probing with the slide in and look under the floor. Thanks for the help!

That's a lot of kids to pack around one table.

I've seen 8 people at an rv table before but not 12!


You're going to need more table to go with those legs!

Here's what I had

My folding mechanism bit the dust on the last trip. WORD OF ADVICE: Fold the table down to the bed position when traveling.

So I took it off the bottom and attached pedestal bases to the bottom side of the table. Attached .5" plywood with 1" screws and the bases with 1" screws. The pieces on each side were already on and the middle piece is a scrap piece I had that fit just perfect. I know it ain't pretty but who looks under a table!

Here's what I got

The first pic is what it looks like under the carpet. Screwed the bases to the floor with .5" screws. I was afraid to use any longer in case it went thru the plywood. The legs are 29.5". The original mechanism was 27.5" . A little higher but it will make the food closer to it's target! A lot steadier than what I had, we'll see how it holds up. I'll be sure and take it down for travel.
