Thanks for the info. I might have to get one of those.

My camper came with the flimsy fold down legs, we replaced them with pedestal legs, so much better and have no problems with slide. It was a easy modification. I just dont understand why they put fold down legs on a table

Our Rockwood 2702SS dinette table came with these legs and the table is WOBBLY. However what I found to be the cause is the latching mechanism (see ivesm post, the yellow dot in third picture) that holds the two halves together when in the upright position. Whereas the bottom half is firmly on the floor without any rocking, the top half (with the table top attached to it) rocks back and forth. Again the latching mechanism isn't doing that good of a job in holding the two halves together and you can see the movement.

Don't expect to use the dinette as a bed anytime soon so I'm thinking of somehow permanently attaching the two halves together and calling it quits.

Yvesm,
Do you have a point of contact for ordering these legs? And out of curiosity, how much were they?

Personally I would like to hear more from Frank M. I HATE spending good money on an upgrade that does not do what is promised.

Is his issue with these square tube folding legs a "one off" or is it a systemic problem.

Spending a hundred bucks or more for a table to find out it is "wobbly" would piss me off huge.

The new legs were a Waranty replacement of the old tubular legs. You would have to contact FR parts deparment to get a price. I don't have a part number

Lou, we have only used our Rockwood once and although the table was definitely wobbly I really didn't get down on my knees to see what's going on. It was enough of an issue that I made a mental note to check it, but nothing that kept me up at night (you know what I mean).

But back to my post and your question. In the little time we did use it I could tell that it wasn't the bottom section of the table (where it makes contact with the floor) nor the table top being improperly attached to the top section being the movement culprits, the place where I saw movement was where the folding sections meet when in the upright position and are held in place (locked) by a spring loaded latch. It was there that when we moved or leaned on the table I could see the back and forth rocking. "One-off" heck yeah, mine does it and I only have one Systematic? We'll have to wait until ivesm puts his together and see what he finds.

I'll take a closer look this weekend and post pics and an update.

Thanks you guys for taking "point" on this. I have my dealer looking into price and availability for just the leg set. I will also let you know.
My dealer is not the best, so they may, or may not, get back to me.
