    Hi, Anyone got a 584 with the table that's been modified to fold down?
    What's it like to live with, who did it, and is it worthwhile?
    Any info you can think of will be very useful.:Smile:

    I considered this
    I think it all depends on how much you use the table ; if you just use it for meals it is maybe a good idea to modify , although that depends on the price is suppose
    but personally we use the table a lot , there always seems to be a computer , or spread maps or something else being put on the table ; also being able to just pull out the extension to pop a cup of tea on while having a lie down on the settee would be sorely missed
    so a cost benefit analysis showed it wouldn't work for us
    actually , we don't find the 584 claustrophobic anyway

    Thanks for quick replies, actually we don't find the 584 at all claustraphobic, just thought it would be handy, we don't use the table prehaps as much as some.

    It was the prices I was quoted that made me initially decide against it.
    In the long term I'm glad I didn't go for the modification.

    Search on the "dark side" for Hymer table mods.
    You should find some pics and info.

    I did it myself and it makes the whole living area seem much bigger when the the table is down. Much easier also if you use the ladder for bed.

    Never used the pull out, so that got ditched.

    Why Hymer didn't make that table a "folder" in the first place I'll never know, IMHO it's miles too big in a van of that size. It's only a three berth after all.

    Manouche, You said you did the table mod yourself, do you mean you actually did it or that you had it done.:Smile:

    I converted ours to a drop down and it works well, giving much better access to the drop down bed besides more space
    Got the info from the dark side
    As long as you are resonably handy with the tools it,s no problem
    Be careful when you saw it off and get someone to hold up the cut off bit as it is hollow and quite fragile
    You then have to fill in the gaps with timber, well glued in, and hinge with piano hinge

    Best of Luck:thumb:
