I too have juggled 4 or 5 different table ideas and nothing really worked as I'd hoped. If someone was crafty they would have a second shelf below as a means to store plates or what not when at location. If it were lowered or had different leg heights it could be a great spot for say a cooler holder when in transit provided it doesn't weigh a ton to make the front too heavy

Currently I use a folding aluminum table which can be used for other things. Over the years I've plotted different tables and means of mounting them and have never gone forward with any of my designs. Yours does give me a little more food for thought.

Great job

That's a great idea. I have dual propane tanks but only have one connected to the trailer. Then at a campsite, I have a folding aluminum table I set near the tongue to put my portable grill on, which is then hooked up to the other propane tank. I always thought if I could have some sort of small platform on the trailer tongue I wouldn't need a folding table.

I have seen the hot rod guys with something similar on the front of their bolers. On theirs' they have one arm that comes up and over the propane tanks with the table welded to it. They have drilled several holes in the bottom of the pipe so that it swings out to different positions and the pin goes in and locks it in place. When traveling, they just swing it back over the tanks and lock it into traveling mode with the same pin. Someday I might have time to get one made. The one thing that Brandy's has and the other guys don't is an umbrella holder. That is such a great idea. Keeps the food dry....

I really like this idea. I've been trying to figure a better way to hook up my grill up front and this would be perfect. Thanks for sharing!

Really great modification, Brandy!

Did you weld the holders onto the tongue?

Brandy, you said you picked it up at a thrift store. What do you think its intended purpose was? It's great when you can repurpose something and it works out so well.

It appeared to be a stove grate for perhaps a park style bbq pit

I like the grate material as rain won't pool on top. It is really sturdy and doesn't have the wiggle most little tables I have tried. There are two handles on top and since the weld is pretty tight they are needed to jimmy the grate up and off. The plus side to the welding overkill is this is something that will be on there for a long time. When I am driving two hitch pins keep it in place thou I doubt that thing would fall off
