  • 2250RK theatre dinette table relocation

    The DW and I love the layout of the 2250RK and don't have much of a need for the folding table that is supposed to be used as a dining table. It is heavy and took up valuable storage space under the bed. It was a PITA to get it out if we wanted to use it and then had to put it away when we were done. So I decided to utilize the wasted space behind the theatre seats and create a storage location for the table.

    I found some scrap 2x2 and used it to make a base frame for it to sit in and then used a another piece to create a latch to hold it in place. I put some felt pads on the wall and inside the base frame to keep it from rubbing while in transit. I also installed a handle on the table to help in carrying it.

    For good measure, I threw some stain on it to try to blend it in with the floor tile a little better than raw pine...All-in-all, I am pleased with the end result. It got the table out of the under bed storage freeing up valuable real estate and utilized a space that would otherwise go unused.

        Great Idea! We had the same problem but used a different solution. I put the table in the garage at home and now we use two standard size TV dinner folding tables to eat on and then put them behind the theatre seats where we stor two additional small folding bar stools in case we need to seat two additional people / visitors. FWIW, I also unplugged the two power supplies that fed the two theatre seats because we don't see much value in them and now have 4 additional 110v outlets at our disposal, which has turned out pretty handy. Travel Safely !!

          We think alike....I also have 2 folding TV trays but I have them between the recliner and the cabinet. When I pulled the seats to do this mod I moved them away from the cabinet about another inch to make just enough space for both of them. I need to pick up some felt pads so that they don't rub on the cabinet or each other when they are stowed. I will post pictures once I get it completed.

          I do like your thinking about adding a few folding bar stools for guests to use....I may have to do that too.

          I thought about putting the recliners on a power strip but so far we haven't had too many issues with hitting the buttons by accident. I like the heated seats but the massage (i.e. vibrate) is worthless. The lights are ok if you need a nightlight but they are almost too bright!
