We use a folding camp table much like this one.
http://www.amazon.com/Outsunny-Alumi...+table+outdoor

While not what you asked for we find it much more useful and easy to pack.
We had a pop up trailer for a while that had an outside rail and you could remove the cook top and mount it outside.

We added a 120 volt outlet outside by the door and we could use electric appliances out on the table without cluttering up the trailer. Our 13 foot Scamp counter space can get cluttered up real quick if you don't expand outside a little.

You would have to rig up a stout leg?...
The leg would probably need to be adjustable, since the terrain around the trailer may not be perfectly flat.

Joy, that's the look, yes. I found an aluminum Z channel that would work well for mounting a small table.

By the way, is your PVC black tank hose mounted down on your tow bar in the photo?

[QUOTE=Joy A;552799]I have a table that I mount to the outside. I had my welder add a 1" interior square tubing (receiver) to the frame. Then had him make a 1" exterior bar ...

There is also a kit (or separate parts) available from RV supply sources that is used to mount dinette tables. It has a male/female channel system for the wall side, and an adjustable leg for supporting the other end.


Here's what the wall part look like: https://www.google.com/search?q=rv+t...O5Nj6fVfr2M%3D


Here's one that will fit your 2" receiver

And there's another idea, it's detachable I think:

Roselyn, I immediately thought of that table when I read the title! I also think there are several posts on here by folks who have duplicated it. That's what I'd do.

I have issues with perforating the fibreglass shell, so I really like this idea:
Wheel Well Table

Only issue I have with that is it is a pain to move the table into the sun for morning coffee and to move it into the shade in the hot afternoon.

A rail on the outside of your trailer allows you to mount your table there. A boon when on the road. At a roadside stop just mount the table, pull out the cooler and sandwiches are a snap. Reload two items back into the trailer and you're back on your journey. In camp you don't have to use some grungy, crap covered table left in deplorable condition by the last user.

Peg, you threw me for a bit....I went "what PVC black tank hose". I didn't realize it showed in that photo. But Yes it is, actually it's for my gray water. In fact, that was a second holder which had an extension in it. The picture was taken some 14 years ago. I now have a box I built on the tongue for the generator and propane tank. Both the original sewer hose holder and the extension are mounted on both sides of the tongue under the overhang of the box painted black. Thank goodness for hose clamps, actual I think these large ones were for Dryer hoses.

The use of the back receiver is a great idea but the bike is there. So my side table works great. Plus it's under the awning if it ever decided to rain again here in CA.

I mounted a 2in. Receiver for a 4wheeler on the corner of bumper using a bolt it will swivel to side or to back that I have a BBQ for "tailgating" in no holes in fiberglass.

I'm late in throwing in my .5 cent.
