Camping Tables

We are looking for an all purpose camping table that can be used to place a grill on and that will also fit in our 10X10 screen room for eating, playing games etc.

Any ideas greatly appreciated

I will be interested in the replies though. Used my large black plastic equipment tote for an outdoor coffee table, and thought it would be perfect to set my portable grill on... until the grill started melting the large black plastic lid on the large black plastic tote.

-Red, recommending against plastic for a grilling table...

This guy has it figured out, I went with the plans for a self storing camp kitchen, love it you can order one pre made or the plans to make our own! In the screen room I set the volcano stove on the floor to let the heat out lower to the ground, but the volcano will not transfer heat to the table safe there.

The camp kitchen chuck box.

Good luck!
Ps I made mine from some recycled oak flooring, not fine furniture, but the added horizontal space sure makes things sweet!

Cabellas has a nice aluminum table that rolls up and fits in its own carry bag, and it's very sturdy. Actually they have a couple of options, but the more expensive one does not wobble at all. Very happy with it and it costs around a hundred bucks.

I tried the alum. Roll up table from Cabelas. Wobbly and I don't trust it.

Rule #1 if it goes with it must serve two purposes, a rolled up table when put in a bag serves as a bag on the ground.
A camp box /kitchen when packed up still works as a low table /coffee table and will not wobble and fall down

Red, go to a Cabelas and check out the table yourself. The one I posted is every sturdy.

I have decided not to buy a camping table but instead use a portion of my Cabela camper's kitchen to place our portable grill on. I did not want to initially use it as it is heavy to move. It is now a lot lighter after removing much of what I didn't need to use.

I use a 4' x 2' white plastic folding table. About 40 bucks at many stores.

I also use a plastic (?) 2x4 table with adj. legs. It has 3 height adjustments, and folds and fits in the closet. I cooked on it with my baby Q and it did NOT melt the table.

I've got that same $40 2 x 4 table and use my Q2200 on it.

I've also a Cabelas table (not the dining table, but the same collapsable/folding concept), and wouldn't dare do the same thing.

The 2'x4' from WalMart works like a charm.

The Alps Mountaineering table shown above is what we use also. The grill sitting on it weighs about 50lbs. and have had no problems with sturdiness, but I do not think this model is available any more.
