Another Mod to my 25KRB

When we go camping, there’s only two of us, the wife and I. The trailer has plenty of room for us but didn’t have enough space between the counter, stove and refrigerator and the dinette. So we did a little modification to the dinette. Gave us way more room. I don’t have any pictures of the b4 but here’s the after. Click image for larger version

without pics you might explain in writing what you did so that other might consider the mod.

The dimensions b4 for the dinette were 45”x75”. Now the dimensions are 26” x 75”. Aisleway between table and oven/kitchen counter went from 19” to 40”. Didn’t have to cut the table, just turned it sideways and got rid of the booth seating and refinished two chairs I already had that are a lot more comfortable than the booth seats. Table top still the same size for the catch all.

Roomy!

Really makes it look roomy like that. Two questions: 1). What do you do with the chairs while you travel. 2). Did you replace the flooring, and what is involved in that?

No didn’t have to replace the flooring. Put some silicone sealant in the screw holes. We plan on lashing the chairs to the table when traveling. It made a world of difference with the extra 19” of walk space. I also did something similar to your hanging baskets over the couch and added the counter extension. I’ll post pics of it when I get finished.

Brilliant. We too have a 'one-butt' kitchen, where only one butt is allowed at a time. Obviously you were okay with losing the 'bed' feature the dinette provided...Did you just reposition the table legs and screw the bases into the floor?

Assuming I found the right one, this floorplan may help others visualize the "before". (Della Terra 2019 25KRB floorplan from RVUSA.)

Yes that is exactly what we did. Just unscrewed the bases, repositioned and screwed them back down. The bases are made of plastic so you can’t get crazy tightening them down and the screws are short enough that they won’t go too far through the floor. And that is the correct model/floor plan. It really made a big difference. We put the cushions in the storage at the end of the bed.

We have two "D" rings on the floor that lay flat when not in use, one under the table and one next to the wall.

We turn one chair upside down on top of the other and run a strap with snaps on both ends to the D ring. Pull the strap tight and the chairs are completely secure while traveling.

I may have to come up with something like that when I get a chance to see how they ride. Thanks for the tip.
