If you're worried about it, set the board on floor before you get on read. I think this is a non problem, problem.

Thanks for all the great ideas. That "hinged table top" is nice.

Good catch David. Of course we've had folding (hinged) tables in our trailers as well. It's big benefit is that it opens the dinette space.

It really gave an open feel. Sweet quick set-up and tear down.

This is a nice looking table, but I'm still trying to figure out how it can be all set up and used for dining. How do you put food on the table and all the place settings, etc. and still get into the dinette? It looks like it's so close to all the cabinets?

I see the hinge and that's cool, but how do you set it up to eat... and then get "in" if there's more than two people?

I added two ⅜" dowels at the front of the ledge that holds the table and extension when in the down/bed position. These keep the extension in place during travel. Otherwise it can slide forward and end up on the floor. Don't ask how I know.

Donna,

Our table is similar to Dave's table. In the years we've had the table we've only used it unfolded a handful of times to eat. Folded in half is is easily adequate for the two of us for dinner.

It makes the dinette very comfortable in the evening when we're sitting around and visually makes the space look larger.

Donna, what you see is an optical illusion in the photo. There is room to get in and out with the table fully extended.

John, ours sets on a moulded fiberglass lip. Did you add the wood that you put the dowel in or did it come with it? Nice. Thanks for pictures.
