Cheap dinette table...

I love my new FLagstaff 5th wheel but for the life of me I dont understand the cheap fold down legs on the table, it wobbles so bad I dont want to eat on it, But I am going to take them off and replace them with the pedalstall legs. Has anyone done this conversion.

Simple to convert to the pedestal, but they still wobble

I thought the pedestal table would be more stable, but anything has to be better than what I have. Already ordered the legs and bases.

The pedestal isn't too bad, but it does wiggle, it is held in by friction, the two posts are beveled on the ends to fit into the bases, you have to push them down tight, the tighter you get them the less they wiggle, I don't think you will be dissapointed compared to the folding legs

I sort of like the folding legs (flimsey as they are). Its easy to move the table around the camper or take it outside for a party.

Now to build an extension for it in case we have 6 for dinner.

Trying to decide which end to put the extension on. Since it moves very easily, I am thinking of something that clips to the wall with stadard table clips and connects to the movable table with a clamp. That seems like the simplest solution.

I do like the folding legs over the pedistal style, but these are very flimsy! I tried moving my table with my tool box on it and the cross braces buckled. Are there sturdier folding legs available?

I am looking for something stronger as well. I will post if I figure something out.

Thanks. I didn't think they had them but after your post I looked a little harder and found it. Also 2 legs and 4 bases on order now. ~Al

Is your table on your slide out? If so does that present a problem for attaching the base to the floor? Such as not thick enough material to connect the base to? I agree that the legs suck but I have thought about making the feet extend further either with wood on the bottom or some other way. Let us know how the pedestal bases work.

If you do a search on the forum with the words "question regarding dinette"
it will pull up a post from last winter, where one member posted the pictures of his conversion of the dinette table.

I am also doing this conversion, mostly because I want to be able to stop for lunch and have the table ready to go when we are travelling. Also every time my kids sit at the current table they jiggle it all over the place!

Did you install the base, single adjustable type for the dinette table?
I was looking at the pedastel from Camping World but was concerned about enough of a floor, with the slide out provision!??

My Coleman pup had metal recieving brackets screwed to the wall, and metal catches screwed to the wall side of the table. With the legs down, it was very sturdy hooked on to the wall. My V lite has the same table as you all have, I think, and mine isn't wobbly at all. Hmmmmm....Randy
