The dinette in the 30' is a little different from the other models and does not make into a bed. It appears that LD purposely made the dinette shorter to allow for the driver's seat to be positioned to it's rearmost extension. However, as with most things, it can be modified.
The total (maximum) length, from head to foot, of the dinette is 71.5 inches, just short of six feet, without the back cushions. That dimension would seem to accommodate a shorter person, say 5'5". However even with the dinette expanded out it would not be adequately wide enough for two. And, because LD does not provide a shelf to support the span between the seat bottoms, one would have to be fabricated for that purpose.
- Another problem that may arise is that the dinette table may pull loose from the wall. One suggested fix for that is to remove the hinges and fasten the table to the wall with a piece of aluminum right angle stock to make it solid and immovable. You might also consider using a full length piano hinge which would allow you to fold the table to a vertical position.Contributors: Chris Horst, Steve S.
