Thank you so much for the table idea. I have been trying to figure out what to do in the front of my Scamp and I think this will be great.

I'm glad you like it! I'd love to see how your table turns out!

I like this idea. You can still use the original setup or change the table size without tearing the place apart. I can see about a dozen or more at the next campout.

This is a great idea! If you want something pre-made, I found a table about this size at Big Lots last year. It actually had two shelves and thus the legs were made to screw together with the shelf in between. I'll bet you could saw off the bottom of the lower set to get the right height. Then you would just screw in the "extra" bottom legs when you wanted to use it outside. I haven't tried it because my table sits on a chest holding my scanner and printer. I'll have to go find another one to use camping!

Here is a view under the table showing the removable legs. The legs and the hardware were bought a Lowe's. The 28" legs were just right but the other legs were 16", so I had to shorten them a couple of inches to make the table level.
What is the hardware which you bought at Lowe's to make the legs so easily removeable? I like this idea and it looks so simple compared to doing a whole job of cutting up the bunks into a dinette.

Louise,
I don't remember what the little metal plates are called, but at Lowe's they were hanging right next to the table legs. The legs have a threaded metal piece in the top end. The hardware that is sold separately has a threaded hole for the leg to fit into and 4 holes to screw it into the under side of the table. Just be careful to buy the right type. One kind will hold the table leg perpendicular to the table (that's what you need) and the other kind will cause the table leg to be at an angle to it. I'll attach a pic of one of them.

This is brilliant! I love sneaky cheap fixes to permanent problems! Where were you before my last trip when I made dinner for six in my 4500! Next stop, the hardware store!
