Got rid of the super heavy table

Our Uhaul has a large, heavy, and cumbersome table that is support for the rear bed. This table is also too large for even the tiniest person to squeeze by to get into the dinette. First thing I did was to stain a round table blank from Lowes and screw on a bracket. Great! Now we can actually get in to the benches but I was still lugging that massive toe crunching monstrosity! I decided to make boards to bridge the gap. We got some really nice 1x4's and cut them to size. I'm all about simple so I didn't want to be hassling with 8 individual boards. I had some canvas lying around so I made a "bag" for them with individual sleeves. I split them into two groups so that one set of boards will fit under each of the cushions of the dinette. Now we don't have to keep relocating that heavy table around during the day because it was in the way. Picture shows one set of boards lying across the gap Click image for larger version

I like your idea Brandi. I'm thinking about making some kind of change to mine too.

Brandishing,

I really like your table! Did you consider just slicing up the heavy table and using that? Is your new table bolted to the floor?

I didn't want to cut up the original fiberglass table. The new one has a table leg cup screwed to the bottom and it just pulls apart so that it stores under the bed when in bed mode. Much easier to get in and out now

Me like! And applaud your decision to preserve the original table. It's like real estate.... they ain't making any more.
