Small foldable table

Hi


Our new (to us) Autotrail Comanche does not have a front boom table. The previous owners unscrewed it and took it with them. Presumably because they are £235 new, from Autotrail.


I may well get a boom arm (c.£70) and a table top and make one up myself at some stage however until then I think we'll get a small, sturdy, foldable table to stow behind the passenger seat when on the move. We can also use this for drinkies outside as well at beer o'clock time (c.4.00pm usually ...possibly earlier if abroad)


Inside the table will be used for when we stop for coffee really so doesn't have to be too big.


Does anyone have any recommendations for a small, sturdy, foldable table?


Cheers




Graham

I have one of these, though I didn't pay as much. The legs are individually adhustable, so rough ground is no problem. No obstruction to knees on 2 sides. The top rolls up and the frames folds very cleverly and it all packs into a bag. I'm well pleased with mine. I use it to cook on outdoors too.

£235.00, well the price seems to depend on who supply´s these round tables.
We were told it would be £200.00, when it arrived (free of charge after all) the price ticket on the back of the table said £120.00. ?????
Have you looked in the wardrobe, maybe there is a folding table in there, or have they taken that as well assuming your Comanche is supplied as our Navajo.
We couldn´t find the half moon sink cover, had to phone the dealer who explained it was in the drop down shelf under the microwave, is your Indian the same?
If you are going to make a table to fit the column you also need the purpose made extrusions that make up the clamping device, (my man says). He has fitted one table and now wishes we had 2.

Do your blinds come up from the bottom and the fly screen pulls down ? to my mind thats the wrong way round.

Hey Jan


I cant answer many of your questions as we don't have the thing yet


The main table is definitely there in a wardrobe (obviously...where else would you keep a table??!!!)


The Autotrail website says £235 but the clamps and swan neck arm and table top can be easily bought and put together. I'll wait until we get her for that but in the mean time a small folding alternative would be just the job. It only needs to be c.18 inches square (that's 45cm in European speak)...to hold beverages really.

We have a small folding table that we've seen for sale in various places but I don't have a name for it. We only use it outside the van as inside the different floor levels mean it could easily get pushed over the edge of the step, and at the front, next to the swivel cab seats the floor is sloping.

However last year we bought a couple of Lafuma chairs and also a couple of matching folding stools. These were meant to be used with a cushion on as footstools or as extra seating if there are more of us. I've found that using one with a lap tray on top is ideal on the sloping cab floor if I want to put a drink, book etc. beside me. It also works well if the van isn't levelled well, you just adjust the bean bag part until it's level.

Well, they do say that everything in the van should have more than one use.

If it doesn´t come with the boom he needs this -
Or am I misunderstanding what a boom arm is? where is the link for the boom arm?

Come on Dfd mate...get with the programme...I said, I don't have the MH yet


When I do I'll look at the above (and Jan is right I will need the clamp thingy too...something needs to clamp the boom arm onto the MH)

We have a wonderful little folding table that we bought from a B & M store for £6.99.
I've looked on their website but unfortunately couldn't find it.
Its 19" x 15" with a wipe clean finish and folds very flat. Comes in black or white.
