We were actually glad to get away from the pedistal mount in our previous HTT, and get to more portable folding leg table. We've took it outside once as an extra serving table for an impromptu campground picnic, and we've pulled it in front of the sofa to do a puzzle... Additionally, without the floor-mount hardware in the way, we use the space under the table for in-travel storage of items that get used outside once we get to our destination.

We just got a 23SS on Monday and as others have said, the table wobbles so much that it is almost unusable. We play lots of games at night and this will be a problem. I looked at where the flex is happening and it looks like the screws are not driven in flush. Are they all like this?

Thanks!

There is a high possibility I might do this mod. I just found someone who has done it.
Darn I thought I was being original.

It appears that this mod is on a slide out too
This looks like a FF Wildcat 28RKX - Year ??? But the bench seats are a clue to age

If I were to attempt this mod, I think I would use a heavy restaurant table base like you are proposing. But I also think I would search the home improvement stores for a formica table top that is close in size and not modify the Rockwood table. Good to see how it works first without possible destruction or alteration of the factory piece...

I love the U-dinette, wish mine had it. I hate the bulky heavy wobbly combersome dinette table.

I would definitely mount a support plate under the slide floor as well, if there is room. It would work on our camper's slide.
The under-floor support plate could be bolted to a base plate above the floor, making sure to cover two floor "joists" with the bottom plate, using carriage bolts with the nuts on top. That would minimize the interference with the slide seal.
Then the telescopc base could be attached to the base plate. That would result in a very strong table, and no worries about damaging the floor from someone pushing down on one side of the table.
A bit more work, but definitely a superior result.
Just my 3 cents!

The DW vetoed the mod. She likes to be able to move the table around
