    We have a dinette fitted to our S670 and are planning to change that to an L shaped settee (which I believe was an option).

    I'd like to make it as close to the original design as possible but need a few photos of an original sofa/settee as fitted by the factory to give me the idea.

    Also interested what you do for a table with a settee, what was the Hymer solution?

    What is fitted as standard in the settee box and is the water tank still in the same position under the rear dinette seat?

    If you have large format photos please pm me for an email address, many thanks for any help.

    Sorry, Veevee, your first line totally threw me.

    I suspect you wrote 'dinette' twice in error. Can you please clarify?

    Table with a settee? Surely, the bar version with the drop down table is an option?

    Or the Hymer self-standing table with retracting legs (like an ironing board) that I've seen in other models and was fitted to the S670 we hired (but the hirer admitted it wasn't standard spec)?

    Well spotted Bellini, how trying to think and type sometimes overwhelms me.

    I don't follow MH styles and types very much so don't know what a bar version looks like. But later this evening I'll take a look at the online brochures of the day and find a bar version to understand what you write.

    The folding legs option was one I considered, but was interested in what was original in the first instance and then to decide on which way we would go.

    Thanks very much for your message

    Relied Tootles, thanks

    Would really like to see a photo or two of an actual settee as fitted by Hymer in one of these, any ideas?

    The S700 has a different layout Bellini, with ours the door is near the front and the kitchen opposite the dinette, but thanks.

    Getting a floor plan from Tootles, that will show me approx. length of a settee if that option is shown.

    Have what I think you are looking for in our 1987 644. I searched for this layout because we were mainly initially using the Motorhome to stay at race tracks when my son competed, and both myself and him are over 6'1 and we wanted room to sit comfortably stretched out.
    As my wife and I have started using it for holidays now, Easter in Scotland and three weeks in France planned for the summer including the LeMans classic, we have found this L shape, in our humble opinion, far more flexible, comfortable and relaxing than a proper dinette could be. Although we have never used it, a 5'10 long double bed can made from it.
    The original Hymer table fits with a central pole, into a standard fitting in the floor, although I made a longer narrower table to give more kitchen space and more length. Hope I can get the pictures to attach as it's my first attempt!

    Could only get pictures to load 1 at a time so this is it with the standard Hymer table. I recovered it with a lighter colour Formica.

    This is the longer narrower table I made.

    Yes can see how the narrow table works for you, good idea.

    If you want any help re travelling in France, just ask as we live there about half of each year.

    Thanks
