I've always wondered how those stanchions work? Do they collapse somehow to lower the table or do you just remove them? I'd prefer it if they collapsed since I wouldn't know where to store them when using the bed.
I'm seriously considering replacing the flimsy stock table leg with one of those beefy stanchions!
They just pull out of the cones and they lay right on the floor underneath the bed. We travel with the bed down and pack the chairs, etc. on around them so they don't roll around while traveling. But they're sturdy enough you could travel with the table up with no problem.
I got them here and they're pretty inexpensive. Two stanchions and four cones.
Think the whole thing with shipping was about $40 Birch ply for the table was scrap from a previous project.
Having had both the original Scamp
hardware and this system, I personally prefer this much better.
