The fold-up table on top of the furnace sounds like an interesting idea...would you still be able to use that countertop?

If you decide to do that, please share photos ~

Original '64 GlobeTrotter Table

Okay...here's the scoop. The table top measures 20"x36" and has the same plastic laminate as the counters & fridge. As mentioned in my earlier post, it's height is adjustable. The coffee table height is 19-1/2" and the dining table height is 28".

We did paint the underside of the table to match the top...the original paint was dry & flaking. We also replaced the damaged vinyl trim edging with stainless steel T-molding. Other than that, it's original.

Coffee Table Height...the base is offset to one side, but that doesn't matter because you don't need to slide chairs underneath.

Underside of folded-up table...note the hinged legs. That's what allows the height to be adjustable.

Oh that's wonderful! Does it fit in the wardrobe next to the stove? I wonder where the original storage location was? You know Wally had to have had one. With our plan, yes the top of the cabinet (or now table) would still be usable. Right now it seems to collect everybody's books!

Hmmm...Now there's an idea! I have thought it strange that there wasn't a better storage solution for the table while under tow.

I haven't checked out the closet vs. table size, I'll do that tonight and post the result. It seems that the tabletop portion would fit fine, however with the exposed wheelwell in that closet, the angled portion of table base may not be able to sit flat on the floor. That closet also has exposed PVC drain lines connecting the galley to the back of the trailer along the floor. The last thing I would want is for it to bounce around and damage one of those in transit! Maybe I could design some type of bracket to hold it up off the floor or use the bathroom closet. Although, when the table is folded up it is taller than the 36" long top, so I may not have enough room to work with...we'll see!

Thanks for the ideas though...

Shari

Well, the folded table does not fit in the closet next to the stove, with all the plumbing and the wheel well. However, it does fit in the bathroom closet just fine! I don't know why I hadn't thought of that...guess we haven't traveled enough yet...Thanks Gillian!

This is very much what Airstream should be doing TODAY with it's tables. I have a small plastic table that is adjustable height. Got it at Sam's Club. The leg design is very like an ironing board. There are grooves on the underside of the top that the legs fit into so that the height can be adjusted in 2 inch increments. I sew and use my laptop and the dinette table which is fine for eating is about 4 inches too high to be comfortable for those activities. I'm going to take this picture and my small table to a local metal working shop and see if they can design some legs like this, or find a real high end four legged ironing table and steal the legs. Then attach them to the bottom of my dinette. I will want them to fit under the table or detach completely when it's folded down into a bed.

I feel a project coming on.
