I kept the stock table as is and bought a new leg from Cascade Depot, who sells the hardware used by Airstream.
Check to see if your post has a taper at the top.
I bought a 'locking' post, and the lock is a pain for one person, but is easily defeated.
Or as in my case, I just bought the leg and table base together. The leg is about $25 and comes in several lengths. The new table base was $8.
