I just cut a pair of pvc pipes to fit in the table stand holes and was done with it. I was concerned about breaking the table but with the pvc pipes bracing the the middle of the table it just doesn't flex at all anymore. Two pieces of pvc weigh almost nothing and we can still store stuff around them under the bed. Doesn't make the top any lighter but it sure makes it stronger.

2006 Xterra MT (for sale)
