Isata 5 SS Dinette

I am considering upgrading from an Isata 4 fw to an Isata 5 28ss. My only hesitation is seating. The dinette seems to be the best compromise for us but don't know if four people can comfortably eat in that space. Does anyone have the table dimensions for the dinette in the 28ss? I haven't found many other alternatives in other brands for more seating without getting into larger rv,s and I don't like the full wall slide in the Isata 5 30 because I have had issues with the one in my Isata 4.
Thanks

Its cozy, but we've fit 4 adults at the dinette. Doable, but not something you'd want to do regularly. If some of the 4 are not full size I think you'll be fine.

Four dining will be an occasional thing so I'm probably ok.
Thanks for the input

I reached the same conclusion because it provides an easier alternative for 3; we dont anticipate using the RV to watch TV - easier to do that at home and quite easily done in the bedroom or from the dinette facing sideways and using cushions as a back rest; much easier to work from the dinette than recliners; less stuff to break although the table does not seem robust.

But like all things in RVs, boats and planes, you have to compromise!

The table length is 42.5", it does seat 4. For the 2 of us we have inflatable wedge pillows to put against the window wall. They provide a reclining position for watching TV.
