Popups with two dinettes
« on: January 01, 2017, 03:36:35 PM »
Hi, I want to purchase a used popup with two tables. I am also trying to keep the weight on the 2500 limit as I tend to not pack particularly light and I camp/drive at high altitudes (7200 feet and higher for the most part).  Heat would be nice but all other options/ brands /features are less important.  Any favorite floor plans, etc.

Thanks!

I've seen a couple, but I think you will have a very difficult time finding one under that weight limit. The ones I've seen with that kind of floor plan are closer to 3500 in weight. I'll see if I can find the ones I was looking at.

Have you thought about just a couch or U-shaped dinette for more seating? Your options would be much more broad, in that case.

ETA:

Here is one floorplan that is has a gross weight of 3,043 lbs.

I've seen some dutchman, some jaycos, and a palomino or two with two dinettes but I wasn't sure if I was missing any.  I might need to up my weight limit.  My Honda Pilot is rated at 5000 but I prefer not to get close to the limit. I guess I might have to decide if  two tables is worth the extra weight.  [LOL]

You're totally good as far as weight. Get what you like.

Are you looking new or older?

If you click on the camera icon under my avatar, you can see two interior photos of my '98 Jayco Eagle 12 UDK. It's normally just DW and me so the table from the U-shaped dinette usually ends up outdoors . 

The sticker on door says the dry weight is right at 1,700 pounds.

Oh wow that is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for the neat trick clicking on the camera.  Didn't know about that.

My 2013 Palomino has 2 dinettes.  One with the u-shaped seating with a table that sits on a pole.  The other dinette has seating across from each other with a removable table.  That table usually ends up outside.  I tow with a 2008 Jeep Liberty.

Since you said your Pilot tows 5000 lbs, I'll assume you have the 2016/17 Pilot w/Towing package and transmission cooler. With that, you can tow any popup, as I use my 2016 Pilot EX to tow my Coachmen 21tqx hybrid camper which is about ~4200 lbs loaded just fine.

Rockwood has the 1980, which has dual dinettes, and Jayco had a 12ft with dual dinettes until this past summer.

The 68 Starcraft we owned had 2 dinettes. I believe that same floorplan was used well into the 80's.
We have enough youth. How about a fountain of smart?
