I am thinking of getting rid of the 2 pipe set for table. We use the front bed sometimes and aligning the 2 post up gets to be a pain. I noticed newer Retros fold down to make bed. Just wondering how hard it would be to convert to folding set up.GBA!!SVJ

You might try looking in a boating supply catalog like West Marine for folding table hardware. I’m not that familiar with the 150, but it seems the challenge will be the table’s width dropping down and not catching on the support rails. We have a 181b, so we MUST drop the table every night. I’ve gotten good at it, but it’s my favorite job!

I looked and found the one that go up and down with a lever but are air operated. I use to be able to do it fast but this PD is getting best of me. I am looking in the Sequoia model one leg but twist lock they say it is more stable that the 2 pole type. The price is about $60 so might just give it a shot. GBA!!SVJ

I had a thought of taking table out replacing the area with a couch. And use folding snack tables
But that also means losing storage under bench. 
Have to work on this idea

my water heater and furnace are up front so not many options.They make a new table leg set up made by Sequoia a twist lock set up and suppose to be way more stable than the 2 pipe system. I have called around but no help as to if they work or not.GBA!!SVJ

My daughter managed to cause the base of the two poles to pull out of the floor.  Everyone of the screws came out of the floor.  I had told her the night before you would have to be a size zero or size 1 to fit on the right side or a small child as the space between the right bench and the table edge was real narrow.  Guess she has a short memory.  She tried sqeezing in.  Well she isn't a size one.  So now I have a bunch of holes where the screws were.  I replaced the table legs with one pole centered and replaced the base with a folding tripod base.  (Heng's aluminum Porta-Leggs.   I found it at Camping World.  It did make the table an inch taller.  The table does not feel wobbly but It could be a little bit tippy for someone sliding in, so will have to watch for that.  I am thinking about filling in the holes with pudy and painting them white or black to match whichever square they are on. Or just putting a rug in that area.

Hi Kathleen,
I wonder if you could just rotate (spin) the old bases to the right or left and put the screws into fresh wood? That way the holes would be covered up under the bases and you wouldn’t need to do anything to the floor.

why not have a piece of say 1 inch plywood say 10x10 and paint it black . Table will be 1 inch higher but pretty stable. Screw plywood to floor with 4 screws. GBA!!SVJ

Hi Kathleen
Remove the plate. Drill the holes out and put dowel in cut flush. You can get a cheap flush cut saw at harbor freight. Put a piece of paper under saw when you cut to protect the floor. When you put the plate back down to put screws back in, turn the plate a quarter turn to put the screws in to fresh wood. The dowels will just fill the old holes instead of putty.
