I appreciate all the replies. KN, did you have any plans or diagrams for your construction? Storage is also one of the reasons I'd like to have the booth setup.

Have you ever sat in one of those booths for a long time. They are not the most comfortable things around.They also claim to be able to make up into another bed, but my grandson (13 yo) couldn't stretch out on it.


How big is your 13 year old grandson? My 5'8, 23 year old son, has slept comfortably on ours for a week stretch at a time. I also have slept on it with my grandaughter for a couple of nights when she stayed (I am a small female, but it still accomodated both me and six year old grandaughter). Its a bit wider than your regular twin, I am sure its a tad shorter, as most RV beds of any kind are shorter than house models, but it seems a good bit wider than a standard twin.

I agree with others who said (To the OP) it is usually the other way around. I hate the dinette booth, and would love to not have one at all in mine.

I say think long and hard about this - they are very uncomfortable and your dining table and chairs probably runs rings around a booth comfort wise.

I've seen pre-made dining booths at a couple of the RV furniture sites. Some convert to beds, others don't. They are not really like the built-ins. That you would have to build yourself or have a carpenter do it.

You need places in the RV structure where you can fasten the booth. That's a lot easier to find on RVs with framed walls and wooden floors, rather than laminated foam-core panels everywhere. That your TT does not have a booth suggests there might be a place to tie one into the structure, unless the table and chairs was an upgrade option for a TT that normally had a booth.
