How high are dinette tables typically?
« on: September 08, 2006, 08:21:26 AM »
How high off the floor are tables typically for a dinette?  I hope my windows aren't too low as I reused the stock window opens that are pretty big.  I will be reusing bus seats if that matters.

Brian the best thing I can suggest is put the seats where ya want them and "build a temp table to what ever height makes it comfortable!" Then when ya get home use your "feelings" from using it and make adjustments for the permenant one! Just get out and enjoy that bus! BK  ;D

I already have a table top I bought for $10 from Winnebago Surplus that will be easy to install.  I just realized the table top has a leg so I can measure from there.

I also used 4 bus seats for my dinette, and i'm very happy with them.  My table is about 28 3/4" off the floor and is a comfortable height.  But you should just try different hieghts.

The standard dinette posts are available in different lengths, although I think they only go in 2" increments.  I used a 26" post.  I used an adjustable height home depot table for a year and a half until I got around to putting the permanent post in.  It was helpful to live with diffferent heights of table.

I used only one post, and there is a possibility that the table may move some when I do't want it to.  The posts are beveled, and so far that has not been an issue.  If it gets to be one, I plan on using velcro on the edge of the table that contacts the side of the bus. That should keep it steady, although it may make it difficult to take the table out.

Travel is more than the seeing of sights, it is a change that goes on, deep  and permanent, in the ideas of living.

Speaking of heights; one innovation the wife and I decided to try when we remodeled a half bath recently was to install a base cabinet/vanity that was the height of the kitchen cabinets.  Easier on the back when washing hands, sharpening, I mean, brushing teeth, etc.  We found that we really liked it!
