My fix to the wobbly folding table

I was completely frustrated, like most, with the folding dinette table on my 2013 lacrosse. I had talked to the factory, but did not feel comfortable drilling into the floor and having my kids hanging onto the table. I was afraid the screws would rip out and damage the floor of the slide. I decided instead to cut a piece of 3/4 plywood and use that as a base for the table legs. It is very stable and survived the first week long trip with no issues. Click image for larger version

I recommend beveling that front edge...looks like a good toe stubber

Seconded. And after you bevel it, you can paint it to match.

Nice job! Bet it takes the wobbles right out.

It occurs to me that if you don't want the screws to go through the bottom of the slide, the best thing to do is remove one of the screws from the original two posts to use as a length reference.
