Repla

We have a relatively new (Aug. '02) Liberty Deluxe, which we are generally quite pleased with. One of the things we are looking to modify is the size of the small dinette table. Though much smaller than the larger dinette table, we would like to have an even smaller one. The present one is still too large to easily slip by when one wishes to get to the rear of the trailer.

My question is: where can I find a supplier of the type of composite wood which Casita uses for its tables? If someone could provide me with the name of a national company (that has an outlet in western Washington state) which sells that type of product, I would be able to buy and modify it to suit my needs. Any suggestions?

Replacement Table for Liberty

Hi Tom

Just a thought, but we did not want another replacement wood table that has to be on the post .. too wiggley for us.. If you check out the Problem Solving thread here on this web site and look for the post on Folding Tables 4 Casita - you will find the way we solved our table dilema ... we also have the 17' Liberty model.

The table is from LIFETIME and is the Personal Table - stands alone - no post needed. Easy to slip by because you can move it to one side. We love it.


Just an idea for you.

:reye2

Tables 4 Your LD Casita...

Tom:

In reviewing the Liberty Deluxe's floor plan and never
having seen one in person, I was also concern about
having a table for my laptop and writing, therefore,
I started the "Folding Table 4 Casita" thread in the
hopes of coming up with a suitable option so that I
won't need to order a Spirit Deluxe just to get a table
and take full advantage of the Liberty's spaciousness.

There's many alternatives out there and the best places
to shop are West Marine, Camping World, and Costco.

table replace

Easy way to get a smaller table and not carry extra table tops, is to take the sink cover and put a post holder on the bottom of it just like the other table tops are, then just set it in place as a table top, or use it as the sink top, what ever you need at the time.

Hi James

Hi James! Good to see you again man!

And good tip on using the Casita wooden sink cover and having it double as a small, post table.

I never thought of that (which is another reason I'm glad you're here!)

Note to other owners ... if your brand didn't come with a wooden sink topper .... it's really quite easy to make ... you cut two wooden boards ... one slightly smaller than the exact diameter of your sink ... and another piece of wood about a inch wider, all around ... glue or screw the two boards together ... and you have a nifty sink topper ... good for food prep, cutting or setting a coffee pot.

The small board portion sticks down into the sink ... and holds the topper in place while traveling.

James' tip is to fasten a female metal post holder thingie on the bottom ... and the sink cover can serve as a small table.

Just perfect for afternoon tea.

Thanks James!

table

Tom:

If you won't miss the vinyl woodgrain........

The material is called 'mdf', available at most any (home depot) lumber supply. A 5/8" x 4' x 8' sheet is about $15....4 x 4 and 2 x 4 available), cuts and sands very easily. No splinters. A coat of polyurethane and you have a table. Post mount is transferrable.
<img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3dd94ff4594e0Casita table 3 legs.jpg/>
The underside of this table didn't get finished, doesn't look too good.

We converted to twin beds and use the table in the photo in either 'front or rear' position therefore 3 post mounts. I've also cut a 'different' tv shelf from the same material.

Thanks for the photo PCDon. Hubby says, "thanks for the offer, but we also need room for other things". :wave
