Hello every body. I'm new to RV's and look forward to learning the ins and outs of owning Casitas and camping in general. I am A DIYer and will make modifications once and awhile. I look forward to getting advice from you folks.

I have an FD also. Couple of tips,

Watch swiveling the chairs more than 90 degrees away from the table. The chair back can push on the table so much, it can end up cracking the table support floor mount. I had to have the factory replace my floor mount. 


I have found if I don't need the side table, I just pull it off the support and rest it against the side wall. It opens up the space between the chairs and allows the rear chair to swivel towards the rear so you can put your feet up on the bed.
