Flimsy Dinette

I know there are maybe a gazilliion threads about this.. I just didnt know the right secret word to find em. My 74 overlander international has arather flimzy dinnette. If I fold it out to its full size its very wobly. Folded over it's barely ok. The thing has only one leg and the trac it rides on is plastic.. I'm thinking of just folding it away and using an aftermarket folding table.. Is there some way I can maintain the "pure" airstream look and fortify the dinette? right now I use the Airstream for a Ham radio shack and when I use CW (morse code) the table bounces a bit and when my speed goes much over 25 words per minute my code quality drops off.. It stops being music and develops a dischord..

The table in our Sovereign is pretty much the same as your table, and I've hammered away at my computer keyboard on it, as well as having a train layout on it, without it wobbling.
When you flip the table all the way out, you slide the piece with the leg all the way out, don't you?
There are also 3-4 plastic slides where the table attaches to the trailer, if these are worn out or broken, it can cause it to wobble. There's also a piece of plywood the track attaches to, if the screws holding that on come loose, it can likewise cause a wobble.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
