Edward, in our 17 foot Liberty Deluxe, we just leave the rear table, permanently lowered into the bed mode.
I don't even carry the two table posts with us. (In fact, I don't even know where I put the two posts ... they gotta be around here somewhere.)
I know that many folks with other models also leave the rear table in a permanent bed mode.
Of course, if you want to seat 6 for dinner, you need to carry the two table posts for the large table.:)
