My 3 piece folding piece is made out of birch hardwood, matches the cabinetry.

I think same idea at work, I suggested painting white because my cabinets are white.

I think making it 3 pieces that fold or two with the larger being the table and the smaller the wrap around seat are probably the most straight forward. Either one is a fairly modest project and not really a destructive project.

Turning the front into a dinette is fairly major project and will probably involve making the original configuration a non option without a bunch of work. Switching to a fold up or sectioned rear table not so much.

What about replacing the standard table pole with a pneumatic adjustable post, like found on inexpensive rolling desk chairs?

We, too, find it more convenient to just leave the bed in place in our 13' Scamp. One of the most useful dining items, for both inside and outside, we've found are small dining trays like you find in a cafeteria. The key is to get the small kind so you can easily walk in and out of the narrow trailer doorway.We generally, only have a simple breakfast inside the trailer. My husband sits on the couch and I sit on the bed. The trays allow us to balance our plates/cups on our lap or set them beside us. We only set up the dinette in inclement weather.

Thanks for the response. I might try that, or a small "TV tray." The problem is that I like to eat and sit at the table where I can get a better view of the great outdoors than on the couch. I was hoping that someone had an idea of how to hoist the table up with less effort.

I replaced my Scamp table with an Oak Plywood table with rounded edges. The plywood is about half the weight of the original table and the rounded profile on the edges allow it to slip past the cushions with much less fuss. I am very satisfied with the improvement.

Here's a link to a previous posting. The table they created is brilliant!
It Started as a Kitchen Reno- Project Boler You can find other suggestions by running a search on this website. Click the "Search" button above, go to the bottom of the drop-down menu to the "Google Search", enter the words "table modification" or something similar and you will get many threads on the subject.

Would 1/2 of a rectangular plastic folding table work? It would certainly be much lighter...

I doubt this would be rigid enough to support sleepers.

Maybe something like this would work Staples® 25.5" Personal Folding Table | Staples®.
