Uwe, first time I'd seen this thread, Great GT! I hope we get a chance to see this one sometime.

Sure looks like one except maybe the top has been changed? My table was also tucked away in the closet along with the canopy poles, springs and ties.
Interesting that the legs are more upright also but the same type. Are there empty screw holes underneath the table top?

Uwe's table fits in between counter and couch but my space is just alittle too small.
Is the hardware the same as this?

My real question is this: I have heard that there were hooks and a strap to restrain it while in travel. Do you know anything about this? I have scoured the archive photos and do not see it in the years close to 1962. I also do not see any locations that might have had hooks that were removed. Maybe I should go take photos of the table and then post this question elsewhere. Sorry if I am highjacking here.
Hello Frank,

I assume that the table is original, since it has the same material covering it as the counters. It also has a bracket inside the closet that holds it, which looks original, with perhaps a sliding part that was replaced over the years. Mine does not have a strap, as far as I remember. There are small aluminum rectangles where the legs touch the skin, most likely to protect the skin from being rubbed through.
My trailer is stored in Malibu, about 80miles away, so I can't run out and take apicturefor you right now.
But, being that you're the resident wood worm....which product do you suggest to to clean the wooden panels and then which product to protect the wood, nourish it, perhaps add a little shine to it?

Thanks, Ken! Smells good, too!

I believe it's all the same hardware, yeah. You're likely right about the top, seems out of proportion compared with you guys' tables.

Uwe, we ought to stop in and say hello when we're out there with our '62 this fall. We plan on paying a visit to my parents down the road from you in Laguna Hills.

I'll be keeping an eye on official rallies in that area. Lemmie know if there are any I shouldn't miss, as we're pretty flexible with our travel schedule.

Great, do stop in, Area63 is only a short drive from Laguna Hills. I would book some beach spaces now, as the spaces fill very quickly. Try San Clemente State Beach, for Starters. They have full hookup sites, as well as dry camp sites.
It seems that there is always something going on with the SoCal Group. Why not give a bang on the pipes when it's a little closer. I know of a Kernville Rally in the fall, it's about 4 hrs from Laguna Hills.
I might hit the balloon fiesta in Albuquerque this fall, time permitting. That would be a nice stopover for you guys.

My friends '61 Caravel has an original folding table that has an oval top. From memory, I'd say it is about 2' x 4'.

I know it is original because the laminate is an exact match of the original counters. It also has a storage spot in the closet.

Thanks for the tip! We might do that but will also have the niceties of my parents' retirement village to stay at for free. They're not in Leisure World, but next door at a little bit of heaven for Christian Scientists. Those beach spots do sound like the real slice of heaven, however.

Would it ever - sounds fantastic! We'll absolutely pencil that one in.

Watco Danish Finish oil..... the best wood finish in the world! Slow to build but the best just about the only finish that becomes part of the wood causing it to really enhance the grain. Here is how I do it, not the directed way. Sand to 150grit, apply, let dry 24 hours. sand with 180 grit, apply, let dry 24 hours. sand with 220grit, apply, dry 24 hours. Sand 320 grit, apply, dry 24 hours. Now repeat the 320 again. By now it looks like glass that has been wood grained.

Yes, but it costs $4,000 per 1/2 pint.
