The bracket I used is on the left and the other one is on the right. Not sure how the one in the middle works exactly but looks like basically a set of hinges and perhaps you can't remove the table. These parts should be readily available all over. I just couldn't see the right hand one holding the table very tightly to the wall and it seemed too complicated.

There are at least two version of the folding leg I have seen. Doesn't really matter as long as it folds up.

A slight word of caution, if attaching to an outside wall, you should screw into at least one stud. Two is best but not always possible. I think you could use Oscar rivets to fasten where you can't find a stud and I would put several in. And don't use more than a 1" screw into a stud or it'll end up outside.

Hope this helps.
That was exactly what i was looking for. I am ordering the one on the left as you did. The one on the right is the same on my old '78 Prowler. Very sturdy though. Thanks again!

I need a solution that doesn't involve attaching to a wall. We have two tables in front of a party couch in a Sandpiper 376BHOK and the each have two cylinder legs. The couch is in a slide. The tables are wobbly and seem to slant toward the couch. Any ideas?

I had the same issue in my BHOK. I removed the screws from the base and replaced them with larger diameter ones. Most of mine were pulled out of the floor after our trip home from the dealer. Although it helped they still are not very sturdy and I'm not sure how long this fix will last. I have only made one trip after the repair.

Thanks Pat. I'll tell my son in law to try that. Does your table slant toward the couch? Ours also moves when someone steps near the table and couch. The floor below them is not very solid, but maybe it has to be that way because of the slide? Forest River should definitely rethink the design on these tables. Since you have a BHOK, I have a couple other questions. The master bed has the king Serta Memory Foam mattress. I can't believe they can advertise this as a memory foam because it sure is hard. Did you find yours to be that way? Also I wondered, it says the full bath comes with a fantastic fan. It does have a fan, but it's not as nice as the two fantastic fans that we added. The ones we added have controls on the wall to open them and adjust the speed. The one in the full bath you have to reach up and open manually and turn on. Is yours this way? There is a switch on the wall, but that just turns the power on and off for the fan. I realize the ceiling is lower and it's easy to reach the one in the full bath, but I still wish it were the same as the other two. I had accidentally turned the fan the wrong way thinking I had closed it when I had opened it instead. Good thing my son in law checked it before the rain storm hit. Another issue I'm trying to figure out is a good railing to install for the bunk over the outdoor kitchen, so my 2 year grandson can sleep there. The BHOK is a fabulous floor plan and our first outing will be Memorial weekend. We just picked it up in Ohio from RV Wholesalers on May 6. Our saleman, Mark Wahl, was really great.

No mine does not lean after I repaired it. It did lean when I got it home. This was mainly due to most of the screws being loose. Also I discovered that the round ring at the base turns. This will tighten the post into the base. Almost like a drill chuck. That seemed to help out also. As far as the mattress..... I couldn't say because I never slept on it. Replaced it with an 8" memory foam from amazon before our first trip lol!!! i didn't even consider trying it. My fan is the same as you described it and I haven't thought any about a railing. Mine is also new and I've only made 3 trips in it. I'm still learning the unit.

I never understood why rv manufacturers made bunks with such narrow 4" or so side rails....I was afraid of the kids falling out during the night so I removed the factory unit & made my own out of 1x10 pine with a cutout for the bunk ladder, finished to match the interior...we slept better too!

"L" brackets on the inside supported it perfectly.
