Where’s the Table?

Hello All! Sold my 2017 Roo and have picked my next trailer, Rockwood 2511S. It has everything I want except a dining table. (We are getting the tri-fold couch/bed option) I know it comes with a small lite-weight table, but wife is afraid it will not be enough and that eating on the couch will not be very practical. Wondering about all of you out there whose trailers do not have dining tables. What options are you using and how is it working. Also, anyone out there with a Rockwood 2511S, your comments about how you like your trailer would be welcome.
One more thing. How well does that tri-fold bed/couch sleep?
Thanks everyone.

Moved to the Rockwood sub-forum since the OP is asking for feedback on a Rockwood model.

2109s model but same table setup - a "Dine-ofa", as Josh the RV Nerd describes it. We find the table works great for us.

We use 2 tray tables, same function, not as bulky, easier to stow away.
First thing I did was replaced the jack knife sofa. It wasn't comfortable to sit on, let alone to sleep on.
Happy Camping.

TV trays. We removed the tables from both of our trailers.

The first year was awkward and I had planned to get tv trays but three years later every meal is still being served on the picnic table.

It’s probably easier for me with the outdoor kitchen and preparing meals there. Most of the food is in that refrigerator.

Probably won't help in your situation with two people and different sofa but might give you some ideas. What I do and how I keep it level for eating.

There are a couple of different places to store it during travel. On the bed, in the bathroom or if you are real careful between the slide and bathroom door. Do not ever operate the slide with it in there though!!!! Red tag it, pull the breaker or something to remind you why the slide will not extend. Need to protect the wall of the slide if you do this too.
Last two will take some strapping down.

That table is 32". Maybe just look for a 30" and two chairs to sit in the middle of the whole area. This one fits in the middle too but prefer this setup for me. I was looking for a 30" when I saw this one. I even thought of removing the forward recliner and putting a table in there.

Cut some cardboard the table size and see how it works for you.

P.S. Those seat cushions sure help.
