Removing the Dinette


Recommended Posts

We have a 2007 Sunnybrook 5th wheel. We would like to take the dinette out. There is storage underneath that you can access from the outside also.

Does this mean there is a big hole under the dinette benches?

We don't want to start tearing it apart & run into something. Any help & pictures would be greatly appreciated.

If you mean there is an outside access to storage under one of the dinette benches, then, yes, if you take the dinette out you will be losing one outside storage area and you will have an outside storage door opening into the inside of your trailer. Doesn't sound like a great mod.

We had a similar issue swapping twin beds for a queen, there were two outside doors that opened up under the two beds. We ended up putting the queen sideways which let us keep the access doors under the mattress and out of sight.


You might be able to cover the accesses on the inside so they don't look too bad. Closing the outside doors, disabling any key or twist locks and sealing the opening with silicone should keep it dry. I'd add some insulation similar to what is in the rest of the walls too.

I removed the booth in my 5th and just put some insulation on the inside of the door and covered it with

some veneer with a wooden brace, top and bottom. Looks good to the girl I go with....
