I have travelled with the table up, and down. I find that travelling with it down works best for us.
I make up the bed, throw an old sheet over it (to keep it clean) and then pile up anything large that needs to go in the trailer, and isn't too heavy, on top, such as folding chairs and guitar. The reason I keep the stuff light
, is because the trailer tows better with the weight
in the front.
We also don't use the table much, so I like to have the bed made up, especially when travelling late, so we can just go to sleep whenever we get to our destination.
