Finished and installed new flip out table , but left the clasp out for later . After seeing the table installed we felt that the table would be just fine in a open position even for traveling .The table and leaf weight 20 plus lbs. and I do have bull dog clasps at the end of the rails to hold it in position though rolling down the highway one never knows the g forces .
Anyway built it a bit different from most other tables, Formica over 5/8 Baltic birch ply ,and that gave me a lot of grief namely hardware that I could not use because it wasn't 3/4 stock and so had to toss the Soss hinges for the 180 fold over hinge (and they are not as tight ). The fold out leg is like the original table it is by Hafele , the sliding frame is a modified part from Lee Valley (wood table extension slides )
One added feature is the 120V with USB ports attached to the cabinet then plugged into the lower outlets on the trailer regular or inverted side .
Another mod was to add 1/2 "ply over the street side settee extending it 4" out , thus eliminating the sensation of rolling off when seated .
After doing the project in Formica I would suggest wood only as it is the easy and only way to go.( Formica = glass)
Oh did I mention the chair in brown leather, OMG is it comfortable!!!
