Remove your RV dinette and Gain Flexible Space
If you’re looking for comfortable seating in your RV you may have found, as I have, that the built in RV dinette just is not a comfortable place to enjoy a quiet evening of family hangout time. The following shows just how easy it can be to remove the dinette. One could add a sofa, recliner chairs, or a free standing table, to mention a few possibilities. Removing something that was intended to be permanent in your camper can be a bit scary. In the words of the folks at Mountain Modern Life:
I have come to realize that most items are 10 times easier to remove than I imagined, and yet some are just as difficult due to an insane amount of staples, screws and bolts. Rest assured though, because removing the dinette booth from your RV is likely easier than you think.
How reassuring that it’s not as difficult as it might first appear!
