While getting the Sway Control set up on the A frame, we had to move the emergency break box. Of course it happen to be right in the way! For a brand new TT, the power drill sure has come in handy!

What I don't understand is why they put the table and 2 chairs in some of these RV's I have the Table and 4 chairs in my Crusader. Also those Dinettes are a real pita and I never would want one but I guess it is cheaper then Table and chairs

I actually bought the one I did because it had the dinette. All the other ones in that model came with table and four chairs. The storage under the benches is invaluable plus I just prefer it. Each to his own.

Our 356QB comes with two different dining options, a traditional booth dinette and this u-shaped one with a tiny table. We would have kept the traditional dinette but the tiny table just wouldn't work for a family my of five. We're sad to see the drawers go but are happy that we can all have a plate and cup at the table now. An unexpected plus is all the extra floor space which the dogs are loving.

I like the 4 chairs/table in my Crusader. They have the under cushion storage compartments. Fits paper goods and such nicely. However, the table was just a bit short to get even 4 smaller people around it. Made a 10" flip up extension that tucks under the table when not needed. Chose that length so it does not interfere with anything when the slides are closed.

Considering shortening the width of the entertainment center to make a bit more room at the table. Lots of wasted space the way they did that.

Maybe a stupid question, but how do you keep the chairs from sliding around while driving?

The chairs are stackable, they'll be stacked and the bottom one will be strapped to the floor. I'm also going to use a strap to hold the table in place. I really don't think they'd move if I just stacked them but it doesn't hurt to make sure. I've been absolutely amazed by what does not move when our 5er is in transport mode.

I have the factory dinette. The chairs there strap to the center of the table that is bolted to the floor. If I don't tighten the strap before driving the chairs are all over the floor when we arrive.

The lock of the bottom one is a good solution. You may want to put something on the wall to hold the top one or the same will happen to you is my guess. I see the stack leaning over.

I like your table. What is the model?

Thanks for the ideas. Our table is an Ingatorp from IKEA.

Added linen closet to Wildcat

Built and installed a small linen closet over the small box beside the toilet. No place to keep towels in the bathroom in factory design (Box houses the electric panel in the hallway). Also added shelves in the kitchen cabinets. 2017 Wildcat 301res rear kitchen floor plan. Drawers going in next below the vanity top on each side of the bathroom sink

I needed two for the bigger doors. The two doors above our bed are smaller and one was more than enough.

Re-installed the TV's in the Sunseeker. That bedroom TV is a bear to put up by yourself - and it's the smallest one!
Also exercised the cylinders a little - went and put some gas in the tank, getting ready to head out on the 25th for a long weekend.
