If I remember correctly, they didn't take up more than 1-2 inches when stowed. If necessary, it could be built into the armrest to prevent conflict with the fixed storage table. The table top could be lengthened a bit to hold the groceries. Upholster to match and Ta-daah!
When I get this one figured out, I'll let you all know.
I really need to get into CAD....it is soooo cool.
is a great way to quickly model/visualize your ideas.
It's free, and they have basic tutorials to show you how it works. You'll be making models in no time.
