I removed mine in the last camper- about 30 screws and 10 pcs and the recliners were getting installed. Great mod!

I removed the dinette from my SS2300 recently, not the U-Shaped one. If you type Remove/Exchange Dinette in the Search Bar, you will see plenty of threads on the topic...

Removing U shaped dinette

We have a 270s where we removed the U shaped dinning table and benches. We installed side-by-side theater recliners, that my Wife found on Amazon (on sale)! This also has a central console where I installed a power outlet that also includes 2 USB ports. So running our laptops and charging our phone will be convenient.
Some things we checked before doing this work.
Important - I strongly recommend - disconnect the shore power and set the battery disconnect. If you need power, run an extension from a separate power source. Lot easier doing that then replacing fuses and/or the ATS
1.) Measure the space for width, length and depth
2.) Find a seating unit that you like and will fit in the dinette space.
3.) Since our dinette area is on the slide out, we go a weight measurement of what the dinette components (ours included a large table that had a center metal post pivot.
Compare that weight to the weight of the new seating unit. You don't want to add a lot of weight that may impact the slide operation.
4.) Before and during the dinette disassembly, take pictures. Even though we were not keeping the dining area components - pictures of how the wiring was laid out and attached help in the 'pre-install' of the new seating area.
5.) Take your time. Removing wood that is stabled with large connectors can snag clothing and skin.
To make sure I did not damage the walls/floor, I reused the same length screws - or if new ones were needed, matched the length. This prevented any accidents (holes through the exterior walls, etc.)
The above work took about 12 hours, working over 3 days, but this arrangement is more comfortable for us.
I've included a picture of the new seating area.
Best wishes -

I would also suggest: Measure your door and make sure any new seating you buy can fit through it!!!
