Fold out table

Our fold out table began to feel unstable a few days ago. On inspection I found one of the metal arms that lock the leg into position has begun to fracture at the joint.
I began to see frightening prices of a replacement table as it has to be an identical size so as to fit in the locker it is housed in.

Then along came EBAY !!!! I found a company who supply just the legs themselves, identical and singular too £17.99 + £2.00 p & p

RESULT

Wife: Have you got a fiver ? Me: £4 ? what do you want £3 for ?
Here's £2, bring me the change !

I gave a leg like that to the scrappy a few months ago, tried it on Ebay, not a sniff.

I took the fold up table that came with our MH out and it now resides in our garage at home. A bit of a PITA getting from the bedroom through the MH to the front for use; plus a pain to get back in the wardrobe when Mrs GMJ's clothes are in there; and heavy too.

I bought a £20 one from a show which sits nicely behind the drivers seat when on the move (with a soft cushion pushed into the gap to stop rattles). Its aluminium so very light and Mrs GMJ can put it up/take it down too

I'm not signing anything.

The two impulses in travel are to get away from home, and the other is to pursue something - a landscape, people, an exotic place. Certainly finding a place that you like or discovering something unusual is a very sustaining thing in travel.

It's teak and comes uncoated. You can then use teak oil or similar to give it a weather/waterproof finish.
