OK--I don't expect you all to order these tonight. But this certainly answered my needs.

Like many of you, we want to leave the bed(dinette) as a bed. The front couch does not have the little mini-table like the Burro, and I'm not ready to do the mod to make it one.
But I knew I wanted some "tv" type trays to eat on in the camper if the weather was bad, or drink my coffee without having to comb my hair, etc.

I must have poured over dozens of stupid websites. I knew I needed something SMALL, and something LIGHT. I finally found these: http://www.pctabletote.com/

I ordered 2 and they came a couple days ago. Yes, I paid $40 EACH, and no, they are not worth that in materials used--HOWEVER---they are worth it, cause they do just what I wanted: Small (they pack up into the size of a notebook), light (under 3 pounds each), the legs are adjustable from 13-29 inches (so we can have bedside tables, too!)

I ate my dinner on one that evening, and I was pleased. It only holds up to 18 lbs, so you can't set a 20 lb. turkey on it, but all in all, they will fit our needs quite well (and also can be used for the intended purpose: laptop computer table!)

I also stopped at Barnes and Noble looking for a book about camping, RVs, anything. I found one lonely book: RVing Basics by Bill and Jan Moeller. If you are a NEWBIE like us, I highly recommend this book. I know I could learn a lot of this info right on this forum, but besides being a book person, this answers just about everything (including the terminology of campers). Now I don't have to ask you what "boondocking" means!

Also got my Fiberglass Camper Christmas cards from Zazzle! They are so cute, I ordered a t-shirt and key chain with the same picture.

Cool table. I might like one just to use outside! I captured an image of the table, so we'd have it for future searches. Thanks for sharing the info.

You're doing just fine Vickie If the website should go down, I wanted people to know what you were talking about. That's the "why" for the picture.

Hey, doing this kind of stuff is why I get paid the "big bucks."

So, let me get this straight....since you're getting the "big bucks", does this mean you're buying all the beer at the NOG??

Vickie,
The Moellers are my favorite RV authors. They have written several books on RVing, boondocking, managing 12V power, etc. The books are all really good. You can probably order them through Barnes and Noble. That's where I have gotten all of mine.

I've had one of those for several years. I use it for my <gasp> laptop computer! It folds up and fits in my computer's briefcase.
It was worth every penny to me.
