Wobbly Table

Recently purchased a 27' EB FB. We love it, and particularly love backing up to a beautiful view, opening the hatch, pulling the screen down and enjoying some good food.
- One problem though... The dinette table is the wobbliest RV table I have ever encountered in several decades of RVing. Has anyone got a solution?

The fixed hinge / mount points(on the wall) may be expanded and in need
of being bent back in closer for a tighter fit. Also, check everything for tightness.
Wiggle it and determine where it wiggle most - and why. Seek and destroy wiggle.

It's an Eddie Bauer - the mounting system is different - two legs that mount into the floor. There's another thread on this subject with a whole lot of ideas. BTW on the 2016 they changed over to a better leg which seems to have solved the problem.

The new design has screw in legs, a bigger base, etc.

Foiled Again: Went to the thread and the info there was pretty old (2014). All that was there was comments about the original dual screw-in 2013 legs and a lot of complaints about how bad the table would wobble, spilling liquids.

I can attest the new legs solve the problem. Just updated the other thread with my upgrade.

I have a new EB as well (25') and I can attest that this is an extreme problem and unfortunately Airstream was not much help. They asked: "didn't you test the table before you purchased the trailer?" To which I responded: "Well, the dealership wasn't too keen on me and the family sitting down to eat a meal before we purchased!" I cannot fathom that it is acceptable to purchase a trailer of this price point and have a table that we can't have a meal in without risk of tipping drinks.
The weak link isn't where the legs mount in to the floor, it is the plastic female receivers mounted under the table top.

I have seen the other thread, and was confused at the best replacement legs as I don't want to re-drill the floor.
