Where do you store your table?

All

Where do you store your dinette table when traveling?

Thanks
Stacy

My dinette table is screwed down to the floor in the slide out. It stays in place the whole time. The set up we have is a table and 4 chairs, not a booth that converts in to a bed. I assume you are talking about the dinette table that came with the camper.

I tie mine to one of the fold up seats in the rear. I use 2 tie down straps and X them and hook to the seat. I have 2 tables as I carry another polly table to use outside under the awning. I stack them together and tie them to the seat. Haven't had a problem yet with them falling or getting marked up.

Interesting question, as this is 1 that I was intending to ask on this forum.

We have the table that sets down on 2 removeable metal posts. The dealer said it was OK to leave in place while traveling, and so far so good. But I would hate for that puppy to come loose and cause some damage. Our table is behind the trailer wheels, if that makes in difference in bounce.

Everybody I know leaves the table on the posts. I've never had a problem leaving it on the posts and I've towed in some pretty rough places.

Thanks Bama Rambler. It is really convenient to leave that puppy in place....you don't hafta do anything extra when stopping on the road for a quick bite. That is 1 of the many reasons we liked our model, as so many others you had to take down the table to move the slide in.

Thanks for the replies - I have to remove mine as I need the space for the toys - we are hauling 3 quads and a dirtbike, so I have to fold up the table and fold up the seats in order to haul all that!

The guy I bought the WolfPack from said that he laid it on the front bed (which folds up as well for additional storage). I am just concerned about it sliding around and damaging the luan paneling...

Did not know your situation as to why you ask that question about storing the dinette, now I know why.

And now I know why too.

First, thanks for the enlightenment. Second, I'd make some kind of padded cover to slip it into and then lay it on the bed. I'd at least wrap it in a quilt or something.

Our last toy hauler had a separate garage but yet a folding table with a one piece sofa/fold out bed. We were able to store the table behind the sofa when traveling. I also let it ride on the main bed at times and no problem but i usually put something around it to prevent sliding.

I agree with the tie down idea sounds good to me. I have made mods in our current hauler in the garage with adjustable straps to secure our portable folding table (for use outside when camping) to the wall of the garage.
