2014 Vista 26HE - Need to remove Couch and build Dinette

Lady I bought the Vista from had the dinette removed and a Flexsteel sleeper sofa installed. She saved the 4 cushions which are un-used but she thinks she left the rest of the dinette at the dealer and they of course disposed of it - yeah right into someones truck. I can't seem to find a diagram anywhere for our Vista's Booth dinette and a booth dinette that will also serve as a small bed for grand youngins.

Heck I would even like to see a picture or two if someone has the same model. Winnebago wasn't much help and waiting on hold for 50 minutes is @*#!

Dinette (2 benches with the table connected to the wall) or booth (U shaped, table in the middle)? How big is the space?

Hmmm,. "4 cushions" would seem to indicate dinette? Our U shaped booth has 6 (3 bottoms, 3 backs...)

If you have the four cushions you have most of what you need to figure out what it would look like and how to build it.
The table would the same size as the two back cushions - because that becomes the mattress, that will give you width and depth of the table top.
The two seats are as far apart from each other as the table is wide - because the table top has to 'become one' with the seats, it probably sits on something that juts from the front of the seats - so make the board for the seat cushion about 1" wider that it needs to be to just hold the cushion.
The seat depth (knee to spine) is as deep as the cushions, and as wide as the cushions.
The height of the seat is whatever is comfortable for you.
The height of the table is whatever is comfortable for you based on the seat height.
Put some storage and the seats and you're on your way.

Would really like to see a picture or two of an actual dinette from a Vista 26HE or the sister unit. Appreciate the replies

Just go to your parts manual and have a look.

It's in the appliances and cabinets section.

Or try a Google image search. There's one at Lichtsinn's website

Yep, great pics. Today Jay from Winnebago Technical Service contacted me and in-fact sent me the diagrams , measurements etc of the exact booth dinette that was originally installed in my Vista. Soon as the snow flies up here I'll begin construction. Must say that Winnebago goes the extra mile to help out a customer solve a problem.

Yes Winnebago makes it very easy and even has the Operators Manuals, Brochures, Parts Manuals, etc, etc available on-line under Product Resources.

Here is your original Brochure showing the Benchmark Dinnette with its 3 belted riding positions along with the floor plan:

Parts: WFE26HE 183353-01-000

Dinette: APPLIANCE & CABINETS 183942-01-000 SHEETS 1 THRU 4

I'd be tempted to order the original Benchmark Unit if possible since the bolt holes, mounting plates, seat belts, etc would be a more exact fit and an engineered solution to provide 5 safe belted riding positions.

sonny, I have recently removed my dinette. It is residing in my basement and am very close to your location. If you are interested, respond to this post and we can talk details.
