Recently there have been discussions regarding the dimensions of the dinette table, as well as the construction of a dinette to replace the gaucho setup in the older 16SC models. I'm putting this here in the hopes it will help with these questions. It is probably too much information, but if it isn't enough let me know, the least I can do is help....
I don't know if this is going to be the same across the board for all the older models, but here is the dinette table from the '64.
The overall table measures 36" X 30". On the inner end it has the one corner (toward the curbside) rounded off with what appears to be about a 4" radius corner. The other corner (streetside) is cut off to allow easier passage around it into the seat. The cut starts at about 30" from the wall and ends at about 26" from the far edge.

The underside of the table is framed with a rectangular frame of 1X2-s, centered across and situated at the wall-end of the table. It measures 23" X 33". The wall brackets are mounted to this frame. When the leg of the table is swung out to support it, the leg rests closely against the frame, although it is not attached to it.

View of the bottom (footprint). Left of the photo is the end toward the doorway. The edge at the wall measures 30-1/4" long, edge near the table is 36" long, to the edge of the cutout at the base, for the support board at he corner of the front wall. Cross-slats all measure 22-3/8" long. A note: the one at the left end lays flat, while the other two are on edge, acting as the slides for the drawer underneath.

The frontside is probably the tricky part since it has the curved piece to fit into the curve of the front wall. The top length is 40-3/4, the bottom is 36" from the doorway end to the cutout for the base board.
The curved piece measures 5-1/4" at the top, and 2-3/4" at the bottom, and mounts atop the bottom rail of the frame, which is 36" long. The cutout around the base is 1-1/2" X 1-3/4".
The trim piece showing on the upper front measures 40" long.

Basically the streetside frame mimics the curbside so that height and depth are the same, but in the Airflyte, the water holding tank and electrical panel are located under this frame. The front is a solid panel with the slide, rather than the large drawer the curbside frame sports.

The streetside framing is a bit different than the curbside in that it isn't freestanding. The rearward upright screws to the wall. It is 10-1/4" long. The cross piece measures 23-3/4 long. This part of the frame is butted up to the panel on the end of the cabinet the stove resides in.

The "forward" one is about the same except that the upright piece sets atop the "beam" in the front which attaches the wall panel. It is also screwed to the wall panel, and the cross piece is again 23-3/4" long.

The front of the streetside bench is the part that pulls it together. It is tough to make measurements that make sense, but I'll try. It measures end-to-end at the top: 41"; Top of the cutout for the beam: 38-3/8"; at the bottom in the cutout area: 36-1/4".
The trim piece is 40" long. The cutout for the slider door is 16-1/4" X 8-1/4". The slider itself measures 17" X 9-1/4".

I was contacted by a member regarding the fact that, when the measurements are added up for the widths of the bench frames, and the table top width, they total about 4+ inches shy of the width of the camper. This means the table will not bridge the gap between the bench frames.
When mine arrived home I was able to play with the different features a bit and realized this right away. Among the things that were inside were two pieces of wood, 1X3's I think, and they were long enough to span the frames. It turns out the table does not act as a part of the dinette bed, but the slats of wood make the frame across. The bench cushion construction is rigid enough to not require the solid top of the table.
The cat in the photo kind of takes up the frame, but one of the slats is visible to the right, as only one of the cushions is laid down. I will attempt to find those slats and post clearer photos as soon as I can.
