Interesting Space multiplying potential

Was looking at medical supplies because of their unique solutions to multiply work space, and saw this: Fold away table

It's already airstream blue, imagine if the base plate came in aluminum or stainless steel finish.

I like the idea of fold away/pull-out tables to maximize space, and we are having one of these ("Top Flex" Pull-Out Kitchen Table System From Hafele | KitchenSource.com) built into the dummy nightstand to allow the twin beds to double up as a dinette.

No where near as substantial as one from a medical supplies company but I couldn't find a pull-out from a commercial or medical supplies company.

Martin,

Now that is an even better idea for extending that limited kitchen workspace... hmmm... thanks for sharing!

If anyone else has some, please share.

The only issue I see for using in my kitchen would be the folded up orientation since it would block the window.

Here's another disadvantage of the medical model - I'll bet dimes to donuts that the ANGLE where the table locks is 90 degrees... and the wall of an Airstream curves IN how many degrees? wall mount table wouldn't be level without mechanical "surgery".

The drawer table extension looks kinda neat, but ye gods that's a LOT to pay for a 3 stage full extension sliders. And it would have to pull out from an existing counter that's deep enough to accommodate the slide itself. What is odd? I remember my Aunt Martha and Uncle Cal having exactly this same thing in their very small kitchen when they remodeled it... maybe in 1953? I was a child and though this was the neatest thing I'd ever seen. This COULD be neat in my EB... next to the sink. But I wouldn't want it to extend more than say 12 inches farther into the "hallway". Still counterspace right now is DEAD skimpy in the Eddie Bauer and the fold up top that goes in front of the door? I rarely think of using it.

Those medical tables are for veterinary use... putting substantial dogs on it for physical exams and various procedures. They are large and cumbersome and I believe would be too oversized for the typical airstream. It is a great idea though! Especially if they were lighter weight.

Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse... but you take a boat in the air that you don't love... she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the worlds.

To be honest I'm not actually sure what I will get for my $300 as it hasn't been delivery yet, but the pull out is in two halves so the 'depth' of the slider is only half the total. The 'fancy' bit of the action is meant to be that the second leaf is dropped in behind the first to give the 32" total. Mine is meant to ship this week so I will take some photos when it arrives. Our nightstand is going to be 34"deep (to cover the AC/heater) so the twin beds become a reasonable two person dinette with the table pulled out (in grey below).

Look forward to your solution. I could do more in this giant TT, but with a pull out solid maple cutting board at less than full extension I have some space for lighter but bulky objects close at hand.

Had never thought these linked items even existed, so, thanks!

Now you see it and now you don't. I still have to fasten the long strip that goes along the top of the bulkhead with the table inside as I have some electrical to finish off.

The table is very light, maybe 5 or 6 lbs and made with 3/4" paper core edged with 3/4 x 1/2" white oak on the sides and a piece of 1/4x3/4" popular at the back with some white oak at the front that the pine painted edge is attached to. I laminated 2mm solid core laminate on both top and bottom for stability. It's almost 30" deep by 30" wide and between the aluminum L angle riveted to the wall and the cabinet below, it's strong enough to carry my 250 lbs sitting fully on it.

I used some of the hardware from an original Airstream pull out table cabinet from a 325 but added longer side tracks for the wheels to travel in, to allow for a deeper table. The bulkhead at the very top is only 4" out from the wall and the cabinet door below is big enough to maybe one day mount a large Platinum Cat heater into the door which I could direct the heat by opening the door. Even with the Cat installed the lower cabinet is only going to be 12" deep. from the wall.

Happy New Year
Cheers
Tony

I second that Tony. Beautiful job on the table and wall piece. And I love your "barrel" chairs. I want those too!
