Is this an “Airstream” table?

It followed me home last week in a ’67 Tradewind I formally adopted.
I hadn’t seen a table like this before but it’s pretty neat. The name on the base is Porta-Legs, Inc. The damage on one edge should be a fairly easy fix.
I’m curious to know if it was original equipment. Anyone else have one?
Tell me what I want to hear…”yes, Rog, it’s extremely rare and priceless.”

btw, yes those are puppy tracks on the carpet. Figgy was trying to help me solve the mystery.

Never seen that one, since it folds it was probably an aftermarket accessory. Rare and ...'gulp'.....priceless. Or is that rare and worthless? Seriously if it works for you it might be a good dinette table. You can always stash it when not in use.
Is there an attached fold out one in the trailer too?

OEM is doubtful

Sorry, but my '67 Owner's Manual (which covers the entire year's model line) makes no mention of it.

Yes, the original fold-out table is in place.

Thanks for that link Shari. I say this table was found in a vintage Airstream trailer and that qualifies it as an extremely rare vintage Airstream table by eBay standards.
Figgy agrees. Start the bidding!

How much are we willing to bid for Rog to keep his extremely rare vintage Airstream table off Ebay?

Think big. It is for a very worthy cause. I am a starving Airsstream artist who just got hoodwinked into buying a second Airstrean trailer. I have a hungry mouth to feed and according to some, that mouth would better be stifled with food than with pesty posts to the forums.
This is a one of a kind vintage Airstream table unless the "cash in the attic" film crew discovers more.
Bid now and bid often. Do not force me to eBay this pricelss treasure.
I wanted to post pics of hungry kids in this ad but I couldn't find any in my neighborhood except for that fat kid who ate all my twinkies while I was off guard.
