We changed ours to pedistle style as soon as we got it. Did the same in all previous ones. We leave ours up and have not needed it down as yet. We may have to this year as we plan to turtle while on the road.

Because it is so wobbly I would like to change ours to pedestal style but it is on a slide and I don't know if screws would hold through just the first surface and if they might protrude and tear the floor. That said, I left the table up once and it walked around quite a bit. I found that I can put my foot on the base and raise or lower the thing without moving the base so it drops into bed position in the u-shaped dinette where it is secured with velcro. 2015 Microlite 21DS

We have no problem with it being wobbly. It would be much easier to raise and lower if we had a 'u' dinette layout but with just the two benches you have to try to operate the table from the end. This means that you are pulling it toward you while raising and you can't keep your foot on the leg, so the whole darn thing just wants to lift up

It's just as big a PITA on our U-dinette as it was on our Roo 19 dinette.
