How to find table?

I need the folding table for a 1960's bambi. My airstream is all original except for this one issue. Any suggestions? I have included a picture. Was this table used in other airstreams? Thank you everyone!

Looking at a few older pictures in some of the documented Airstream books this table may be an original from back in the day. However there may be a few folks that own these era Airstreams that could either verify or provide some insight based on their ownership and possible same challenges of needing a table.
Keep your options open before getting rid of it would be my recommendation.

After commenting, I recalled the article in the 2013 Fall Airstream Life by Mr. Fred Coldwell that talks about 1961 Airstream trailers (pages 26-30). Recommend you go to the site (Airstreamlife.com)and see if this is of any assistance. Also recommend that you subscribe as there is a wealth of information (lessons learned) from over the last almost 10 years that Rich has accumulated from some very smart folks. There was some discussion in the Winter 2013 edition that there "may" an App as well with the possibility of all of the magazines going back to 2008. You'll see many variations of upgrades or restorations that have been done successfully with some helpful hints of do's and don'ts.
It may not answer your question about the table but get you looking in the right direction connecting with another layer within the Airstream Community.

Thank you everyone. To clarify, I am looking to acquire the table in the picture. I don't own one. Thanks for the feedback!

I have that table but it came w/ my 1951 . . . well at least it came with the purchase of my 1951. The Previous Owner may have picked it up "along the way". I believe Frank is correct, the early 60's came w/ the Drop Leaf Table - but that's just my deductive reasoning - not factually based (actually that might be "inductive reasoning" . . . I should probably stick to words I actually know the definition of)

I'm buying a table from a member that had some manufactured. Pricey, but I think it is the only way I will get one!
