Mike - if you decide to roll your own - check Ebay. There are drop leaf supports and one dealer who offers the wood slide supports - all at reasonable prices. Search "drop leaf table". Rockler also has the metal supports.

Drop Leaf Support - Rockler Woodworking Tools

Here's some vintage style table legs to go with it.

Check this style table - courtesy Vintage Airstream Archives - coupled with a pair of Leg O Matic chairs.

'59 Table

The original top was three sections 12" wide x 29 1/2". The corner radius was about 4".

I laid in oak and new hinges. As Kevin noted, the original substrate was pretty weak, especially if you forget to secure the table and it falls over a few times.

If you want more details let me know.

Wow, that is a brilliant design, Steve! So, it came with the trailer, but if that was an AS accessory, it's the first time I ever saw it.

From the second photo, it looks like the centre section is at least ½" material, if there are any kerf marks, I sure don't see them inside.

I would appreciate seeing any other photos you have of it...?

Thanks, Gary and Mark for the pics and ideas.

Steve,
That is a very cool design. I didn't spot the drop leaf on the other side in your original post. Love the radiused edges.

I think I'm going to try and make something that looks like the original table. Very retro, perhaps with a cracked ice lemon color formica top.

The sliding wood bits are still available, the same manufacturer makes the slides for the gaucho.

Try this place, or do a search on Walter of Wabash

67 Tradewnd

My 67 Tradewind has a big heavy one that is mounted under the front window.Due to where the freshwater tank is located it doesn't even fully fold down. I think it has the potential to pull on the front too much. Does anyone ever just removethe mounting hardware and go with one of these freestanding tables?

What a great thread! Heck they all look good. I might just have to go with the Sam's Club.

Hey everybody! Look what I got! I scored on one of these classic drop leaf tables. This particular table came from a 1960. The guy I bought it from had sold his Airstream years ago but forgot about the table which was stored in his garage. This was good fortune for me. I've been looking for a table since June and found this beauty just a few hours south in Oro Valley, AZ. Got it for a great price, too! The table looks great and is constructed much better than what I expected. I didn't expect solid wood and aluminum edge banding. The only thing that needs restoring are the wooden slides which keep the drop leafs extended.
