Dining table leaf - 1967

Does anyone out there have pictures of how their table is installed in their 1967 globetrotter that they're wiling to post? (table on the inside to the right of the front door, next to the couch). Ours was not installed when we purchased our trailer so I'm not sure how it is supposed to be. I managed to install the first leaf under the console table and it slides out and up as I think it's supposed to do... But I have to wonder - where do I store the extension leaf? And once I rest it on top of the table frame when we use it is there something that's supposed to secure it? Seems like it can easily shift....

Many thanks!

Did the two halves come apart?
Mine was failing. I made new table tops and replaced the plastic hinge with a metal piano hinge from the hardware store. Two small hooks keep the halves together when folded up.

Thanks Tom! Thats just what I needed! Mine are in 2 pieces as well - the one connected to the wall with the hardware that lets in slide in and out. Then the other piece which I know know should hook via a hinge on the back. Makes a lot of sense! I appreciate the help!

Ours is missing the leaf. I think we are going to have to make one. You are so fortunate to have both pieces!

Yah - I'm counting my lucky stars.... Consolidation prize for having someone cart off with our rear compartment door and the battery compartment door. Frustrating!

The table itself inside is essentially just a frame made of 1x2s sandwiched between 2 sheets of laminate.... I was surprised ( but it made sense, lightweight)! The cardboard honeycomb on the inside was ruined on ours when I removed the old laminate and since it cost $150 to ship a $25 piece of the stuff I opted for just installed cross supports in the middle to strengthen it as I couldn't find any of the honeycomb in the area. Hope it is sufficient!

I have a table, complete with folding leaf and the hinge somewhere up in the attic for a 1970 Tradewind if you're interested...
