How does this lock?

Just wondering if the table in a 72 tradewind is suppose to have some kind of stop to keep it from swinging when folded up and traveling? Seems like it's going to bang the skin.

Airstream did not provide a lock or latch.

You can place a rubber door stop at the bottom.

Seems like mine when folded back slides back slightly behind the Gaucho. Mine is on the doorside of the trailer

Hi,

Ours is under the window street side. We usualy put something in front of the table when traveling to keep it from swinging, but nothing that would damage it, or could slide.

I have not seen any damage to the skin from swinging free. But I think it is a good idea to take the tables weight off the mounting screws above. I have seen a few of these tables work their way loose. So, I use a wooden wedge to stop the movement and also take off some of the weight.

I like Andy's doorstop idea. If you place it under there it will also take a little of the table's weight and transfer that directly to the floor. Otherwise, the rivets that hold the hinge and hold the credenza to the wall will start to sag.

Also, from your picture, I can't tell for sure but your table leaves may not be locked. The bottom looks like it is hanging lower than the top. Those should lock together securely when the table's folded.

We use two rubber door stops, As Andy suggested up higher on the page. We use two because the rivets and screws were working loose at the mounting point. I think the stops help transfer the weight to the floor and not the hing. Mike
