Trailer: Surfside 1978
Posts: 12
We have a 78 Surfside. The table that came with it is obviously not original as it has folding legs, like the kind of table you would see at a garage sale to display items. It's very awkward to get in and out of the rear seats, as it's quite a tight squeeze. i see that almost all of the FG trailers with this seating arrangement have tables which hook into the wall and have one thin leg holding it up at the front, or the type of table that has a base that looks like the round part in the middle of the table "screws" into it or something like that. How can I change my table so that it's less awkward? Any ideas? The area of the wall that looks like the table hooked into originally is all covered in ensolite and it almost looks as if it was never like the other FG trailers. Not sure why this one is different?

Trailer: 13 ft Scamp

Wow, thanks for that link!
Since we are taking the Scamp apart inside (well mostly anyway) I am now convinced that I must have not only the table w/o the hinges, I also must have it in birch!

Hi Kate,

Looks like my table is making the rounds. I had the original attached to the wall version when I bought the Scamp and didn't personally care for that setup for a number of reasons.
I'll be happy to give you any information you need as to where I bought the aluminum stanchions, etc.
We are very pleased with the way it turned out and it works well too.

Greg!

Thanks - please do share! How do you take the table off the stancions?
Sorry to seem a bit dense but I am having trouble picturing it.

By the way, we dismantled, cleaned and prepped the inside of the trailer, tomorrow we paint!
