We’ve seen enough RV renovations to know the number one thing that happens in an RV remodel is removing the dinette booth. But how would you eat dinner without an RV dining table?

The factory-installed dinette booth set or table and chairs is often one of the most inefficient uses of space in a camper or motorhome. Here are 12 RV dining table options to replace your dinette that would add extra storage and free up valuable space for other uses.

1. Drop-leaf table with shelves

Not only do the shelves add extra storage (and you could use tension rods to hold items in place during travel), but the drop leaf means you can easily store this table out of the way when not in use.

Plus, this set includes two chairs, making it shockingly affordable.

2. Drop-leaf counter height table

A recent trend is swapping a traditional table for a bar or counter-height table mounted against a wall. This is one of the best ways to open up your floor space and make your RV bigger.

You can accomplish this with shelving brackets and wood planks, or buy an existing set and attach the table to the wall to prevent tipping.

7. Drop-leaf table with storage

This table takes up very little space when both sides are folded down, and its drawers add storage to your RV. Also, the wheels would allow it to easily roll out of the way when needed.

This table could work for dining, as a kitchen island for food prep, and even as a standing desk.

8. Expanding Shaker style table

This table is basically magic. While it’s small enough to fit in any RV, it can expand four times it’s size to seat guests. You could get a set of wooden folding chairs to go with it.

9. Square Drop-leaf Table

On sale at Walmart.com, this small square drop leaf table would take up a little more room but could seat a small family. We love the mid-century modern flair to it with its tapered legs. And, there’s a bonus storage drawer.

10. Mid-Century Modern Pedestal Table

It drives me crazy when sitting down at the table means bumping my knees on the table legs! A pedestal table can eliminate this problem and still be sturdy enough to support itself. Consider anchoring it with D-rings for travel.

  1. Apparently you have never been in an RV! None of the items listed on this page will work in a motor home or trailer because they are not secure to the floor, can’t accommodate transfer to a full size bed, and have sharp edges.

    1. Actually, I lived in an RV for three years, and I removed all of the furniture that came with my RV and replaced it with residential furniture. Some of it I secured to the floor with the use of D-rings, some of it I held in place with bungee cables, and some was so solid there was no chance it was going to budge.

      1. ‘L’ brackets are the way to go. There’s nothing RV about our 5th wheel. It’s totally furnished with normal furniture. When we move it, we simply bungee the chairs and everything else to something that’s secure, close it up and head out. Whoever made that rude statement has absolutely no ability to think outside the box, modify, or improve on anything that’s already in place. Oh well, takes all kinds.

  2. Awesome blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused .. Any recommendations? Appreciate it!|

  3. I am looking for advice. We need to purchase a table and four chairs for our 5th wheel. Do you think a round table would save on room? Or would a rectangle be better? I hope the right pic is posted cause I can’t figure out how to change it.
    Thanks

    1. Hmmm…It probably depends on the table, and I think you have enough space there that you could do either! 🙂
