Co-pilot seat good height for typing.

Is it really that solid of a mount?
It the dash main body plywood or ?
Does it lock in place when open and when stowed?
I will have to look when I get my MH back from the dealer.

Thanks

The wood is OSD captioned below. Its used all over the coach. The piece I cutout of the floor was incredibly light but quite strong. In the dash its about 1/2" thick so I used medium weight wood screws I think #8 or 10 with sheet metal look pitch. Small pilot holes they grip very well. With board out in oper position most of the load is down to dashboard. Been in use daily for 40 camping days so far holding well. Keyboard used every day camping. No lock open, not needed w/oh. Closed has two rubber friction blocks, takes effort to open. Never has opened under way.


"There are two basic types of plywood: OSD and CDX. OSD board (oriented standard board) is made up of woodchips that have been bound together with resin and glue. CDX boards are made up of layers of veneer that are glued together. Plywood can be attached to nearly every surface, including other wood or concrete. What material you're attaching it to determines how it's attached."
