Such decisions my parents have. Now it's down to a booth or a freestanding table. My parents are retired in their mid 60's. Here are what I think are some pros vs. cons of each.

Booth
Extra storage under cushions
Folds to another bed
Stationary

Free standing table
Easy to move chairs
Easier to get into and out of the table
Ability to change how close/far you sit from the table
No storage, no sleeping area

Anything else? Oh, and what do you do to the chairs while in transport?

one I looked at years ago had two folding chairs and two non folding. the folded ones went back into a closet IIRC.
a table and separate chairs seems more "homey" to me.

I never thought I'd say this but we've had both a booth and now a table. I prefer the booth. It seems more comfortable than the chairs with our table. Maybe I need new chairs?? I use the table for my computer and it's not as comfy as my booth was. What I really like is the new j-banquette with table in front that you can add folding chairs to when you're parked. Advantages of both.

We have always had a booth. This time we purchased a coach with a table. Wish we had stuck with a booth.

I have a fiver with table and chairs. I will gladly give up that little storage for versatility of chairs. My chairs just sit at the table when traveling and I have never had one move or fall over.

I've seen TT's with a free standing table and booth seating.

I have had both several times over and we prefer the booth over the freestanding
table and chairs. When GKs play cards ,games etc at the freestanding table they would rock back on two legs. I put two chairs in the garage and kids played outside on the picnic table. I tied the chairs to the table during travels.
Now I have had two TTs with the picnic type table that is not anchored down.I
have the booth seats. Now I have to lay the table down like I am making it into a bed or it will rock all over. I hate this type !!!

We got the right coach at the right deal with everything right except it had a table. We promptly changed it out for a booth,

I have had both and I prefer the booth. Table always rattles and chairs eventually become a pain. My vote is for booth. Bonus is the storage and you can always put it down not just to sleep on but for extra seating.


We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned,
so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
