What folding table? Can't find the post that this references.

Maggie posted one in "small space living" thread, page 6. Not sure if this is what Bill was referring to.

Airstream did. Seriously though, I would check the street side attachment and see if it could be duplicated on the curb side.

First Mod/Add on

2013, Black on Black, swing out with easy access to back doors. Two sets of wheels so one person can remove and handy, handy storage for bulky items. Easy install of the carrier proper. Drove to Tigard Oregon to the manufacturer's front door. The most enjoyment early on was watching the AS tech agonize as he installed the special hanger for the 7-pin hitch receiver plug underneath the coach. The least enjoyment was paying for it. Great addition to the Interstate experience.

I didn't know where to post this, and I'm not sure how to post a video but found this a potential-in-the-future solution to RV space issues. If I am able to post this story from BI, consider it as in interesting but not applicable, now.



Life More: Toilet Inventions Technology Future
2 British University Students Invented An Incredible Folding Toilet
ALYSON PENN

APR. 4, 2014, 2:37 PM 27,244 14

Two British university students may have invented the toilet of the future. The "Iota" folds in after use, and its creators claim it uses 50% less water than your run-of-the-mill stationary toilet (via Design Boom).

Aside from saving water, it is also comparatively smaller, so it can fit into tiny bathrooms. It also has a rimless design that makes it easier to clean.

The students, Gareth Humphreys and Elliott Whiteley, created the sustainable toilet as their final project at the University of Huddersfield, according to Design Boom.

See how the toilet works below.

Iota has a small footprint, and is easy to clean.


YouTube
The toilet flushes in the "closed" position.

Here's a look at how the interior mechanism works.

There is nothing new under the sun. Over 30 years ago, one of the survey boats I had occasion to work aboard had a fold-away Pullman toilet, so named because it first appeared in Type A double bedrooms on Pullman sleeper railcars in the 1930s. This one is more stylish, but I prefer the Pullman style because it folds up into a full-height cabinet that also holds a pull-out sink and a medicine cabinet, instead of folding up into an oddly-shaped lump like this "incredible folding toilet."

If you want to see a real (though beat-up-looking) Pullman toilet, watch the pilot episode of the long-defunct Firefly television series from 20th Century Fox, where one was installed in the captain's cabin.

We might see if we can still get one of these teak mats. Husband also worried about head clearance. How tall are you?

Teamaron....just sent you pm. Can you still get these teak mats? We might want one. I assume the size and shape is universal for recent years..? Ours is a 2013 or 2014, depends who you ask. Long story. Don't ask.

Unfortunately No

Sorry

But I'd love to hear the long story?
