These RV owners decided to remove their dining booths. Here’s what they replaced them with.
Replacing an RV Dinette with a Table and Chairs
Replacing the dining booth with a traditional table and chairs makes a camper or motorhome feel less like a vehicle and more like a house, as seen in these photos:
Replacing the Dinette with a Couch
The dining booth in this camper was removed and replaced with a custom-built sofa that adds additional seating as well as an extra bed. The drawers from the original dining booth were kept and used to create storage underneath.

Removing the Dinette to Add Storage
The owners of this RV used two Walmart bookshelves bolted together to create a custom eating space. After painting the shelves and covering the top with wood grain contact paper, they set a separate long table in front which they finished to match.
This eating and work station was made from kitchen cabinets with the center doors removed.
The owners of this RV constructed a bar area out of cabinets as well.
Removing just one of the booth seats allowed a bookcase to be added to this fifth wheel.
Removing the Dinette to Free Up Additional Space
By removing the table and reconfiguring the benches, this dining area became a living area that can still be used for eating with a stowaway table.
Adding a piece of countertop and some stair railings along an existing kitchen counter created a new eating space, allowing the dining booth to be removed and the space to be used for other furniture.
Replacing the Dining Booth with a Retractable Table
Motorhome owner David Barber built the unique cabinets and folding table pictured below. You can see photos of the process here.
After removing the dining booth from their motorhome, RV owners Eric and Katie built this combination entertainment center, dining table, desk, and fireplace. You can read about how they removed their dining booth and made it on their blog.
Trading the Dining Area for a Coffee Station
As part of the process of turning her RV into a Tiny Home, this RV owner removed her dining booth and replaced it with a baker’s rack to use as a coffee station. A small electric fireplace shares the space to supplement the trailer’s propane heat.
If you often eat your meals outdoors or sit on the couch to eat, why not use the space for something else?
Custom Built Murphy Bed/Bar
After removing their dining booth, this RV couple designed and built a bar that folds out to convert to a bed. The bedding and folding bar stools all fit inside during travel.
