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?
