Bed Question - Maybe a dumb one!

Is there suppose to be a short pole for the table when putting it in the bed position? Mine is just not very secure when you put it down in place.

I've never seen a short support pole under the bed but you could make one. The table should fit down onto the recessed areas of each bench seat so the weight of the cushions and people hold it down. We don't have the original table, so we have a thick piece of plywood cut in the right shape and leave the bed up all the time.

Original table has too much flex to it. If you're not leaving the bed made up and replacing the table with plywood then I would make a support for the center. You can buy those table legs so get one and cut it to length would work.

We extended our table a little and use a pair of short legs for additional support.

You don't have to buy legs. We use a short piece of PVC with a rubber foot on the end. The top end just slips over a screw and has never fell over. I can provide a picture if you like.
