Anyone remove their booth and use chairs?
« on: February 09, 2018, 08:58:14 PM »
Anyone? Talk to me. What did you do to secure them for transport? We are batting around the idea. We don't use the storage under them and there are no vitals under there so we'd like to swap out the booth for chairs. Anything I should look for when buying chairs? Thanks for your tips. Here's a shot of my table I built that will replace the stock table. This is payment for you taking your time to read my thread. :)

We have had a table and chairs from the start, although I wanted the booth but we took what was in stock. Our table is screwed to the floor. The chairs are kept in position with straps that are screwed into the floor then wrapped over seats. I protect the chairs by putting cushions between them when travelling, but you could use towels, throws etc.

Photo doesn't show straps but where arrow is shows position of one. There are 4. Another one is in circle behind chair leg and arrow there shows where straps go.  Hope this helps.

This pic is zoomed in a bit...

Straps look like these but longer...

Never looked back!  We don't do any securing, just push the chairs in they don't move.

Same here. Our table is anchored to the floor so that stops 2 of the chairs from flying forward and the end wall of the slide out stops the other 2 chairs from going forward if we need to make a emergency stop.

I have a few built-in table with chairs. I have never needed to secure the chairs, however they are somewhat blocked in while driving due to the fold down and step cover. Also
 the after one is blocked by the table from coming forward when braking hard.

I was considering replacing the booth with a computer desk.

We have a brand new 2018 travel trailer that we custom ordered with a table and four chairs.
 The table was screwed to the floor and each chair had a "D" ring screwed to the floor with a removable and adjustable strap with a buckle for securing it.

Since we have put the trailer on a permanent site I have removed all the hard ware, but if I were towing the trailer, the set up was so neat I would have left it and used the straps each time we traveled.

We have a table and four chairs in our fiver and they do not get tied down and do not move. Fore and aft the couch rear wall front keep them from flying around and when the slide is in only about 18 to 24 inches to the sink. Never had a problem.
