Drop down table!! New to this all!

Hi,
New to the world of Airstreams! Just purchased a 1984 sovereign with center bath. I believe 25'. After nerding around in her for oh, endless hours, I realized I am missing the table leaves to the drop down table. The table has a latch that allows it to extend almost the length of the couch. Does anyone know about the table leaves? Have them for sale? I figured we could make some somehow but not sure. Thanks!

I don't believe these tables have changed much over the years. In my 1976 the table folds up from the wall and the table leg is pulled down. You can then extend the length of the table base and then fold the table top over to provide the leave. Its hinged along the edge. There will probably be a small clip that holds in in placed that will need to bee undone. See if thius is how yours works.

Like Don said, I think a current production one would fit yours. Woods and materials have changed over the years, but I wouldn't think it would be too hard to find.

Aside from the mechanical (I'm not familiar with the hardware on these) making leaves would be a breeze and only require a circular saw and an iron. I'm guessing it is Oak though it is hard to tell from the photo. With appropriate 3/4 veneered ply you could set-up a straightedge with a few clamps to run your circular saw against and cut out the needed dimension. It may be a good idea to apply masking tape along the cut to prevent tear-out. After cutting, apply iron-on (heat activated) edge veneer, trim it with a razor, and lightly sand with 220. All that stuff (red oak at least) is at the big box. May not be perfectly grain and color matched but should be good-looking nonetheless. I just did my Guacho side (minus original template)with the described method. Were I in Fort Fun I'd do it for you in 15min with my scrap. Congratulations on your new trailer.

My '02 31' Classic has a drop down table that extends with a fold over leaf on the street side, and a drop down single place table on the door side.

With 3 folding chairs you could sit 6 people there.

Behind the door side table there is a narrow (3" or 4" wide) door to the area behind the stored table. It is my understanding that was for a wooden folding chair, which I do not have.

If your table required extra leaves, I'm sure Airstream had such a place to store them. If you can locate it, you may find you extra leaves.

Very likely. One of my friends has a square-stream and he has a narrow cupboard just on the side where you enter/exit the trailer. He uses it to store an extra folding chair.

The extra table "leaf" is stored behind the folding table on my 66 Trade Wind. It has a similar wood extension that yours has judging from the photo.

I wonder if the leaf isn't somewhere else in the trailer.
