Theater seats and table

We have a 305RL with theater seats. Our issue and looking for suggestions is that we have cup holders but our glasses do not fit so we have no place to put our drinks and snacks. We are thinking of the under the chair table but not sure if we have clearance between the bottom of the seat and the floor. Any ideas?

How about changing your glasses to ones that fit. Extra expense but an easy solution.

Sounds like a good solution to me.

We have the same model unit and DH finds it difficult to get his coffee mug to fit. We have found a few mugs in our travels that work. We have no problem with drinking glasses, as we find most of them do fit.

Someone told us you can buy "extenders", things that you put into the cup holders that have bigger cup holders on them. We have never found anything like that.

Finding cups or glasses that fit is a better solution.

If you really need a table, and sometimes you want one for snacks, they do make tables that have a base, an upright at one end, and a top. The construction would be similar to a bed table in the hospital, but this would be on a smaller scale and without wheels. Our daughter has one. We've never bothered. They are usually made of wood and are attractive.

Another suggestion is to purchase the cup/glass holders that fit the ones in the theater seat arms and extend above the holder with a larger cup/glass holder. I've seen them in the automotive section of Wally World and also are Dollar General.

That’s what I was referring to when I mentioned “extenders”. I just don’t know what they are called, nor have I ever seen them.

If the arm rests on the theatre seats were a bit narrower, there would be room to make bigger drink holders. What you lose on arm rest width you could add to the console and drink holders. People would have room for a coffee mug or beer mug or whatever.

You should find several links to popular online retailers not cheap mind you! You could buy new cups for the price....

I also have 305RL. I put a oak 1/4" board on top of cup holders and put my drink on that. I also bought a black 8" round table that you put plants on. Its about 2' high. I put it between couch and theater seats.

Not just an easy solution, but probably the best solution.

Wink

We also have the 305RL and found the cup holders to be poorly sized. I carry a TV tray with us and I collapse the tray and it slides snugly between the arm and wall of slide out. By rotating the tray so that its length is parallel to the front of couch and snug against the couch my tray allows me to extend the leg rest of my seat and still function to hold my stuff. Maybe this will be something to consider. I sure enjoy our 305. Found it to fit our needs very well.

I went to Lowes, got a piece of vinyl "wood grained" covered wood, attached a couple of pegs to fit the existing cup holders and made a flat surface replacement for the cup holders. Just have to be careful not to knock over your drinks. We haven't in 3 years, "knock on wood".

Have any of you had the "pleather" furniture begin to crack and peel yet?

Cup holder

We had the same problem. We purchased a CAR cup holder/ extender from Amazon by BottlePro for about $17 and put it in the spot closest to the storage (back one). Then for the front cup holder spot we use a square tile-type coaster over the cup hole space and put our coffee cup on that coaster. Works very well. We can both have mugs or glasses there at the same time. Extender stays in place all the time- we put the coaster in the storage bin while traveling so it doesn't fall. 30 oz Yeti mug even fits in the extender.

Another idea - get a ABS or PVC drain pipe reducer from a local plumbing store where the narrower end fits into your existing cupholder and the larger end will fit your coffee mug. Get a little fancy a cut out an elongated hole for the mug handle.

Seems simple to me. Buy glasses that fit.
