DH built it. He has a shop full of woodworking tools. We Had quite a few wide pine boards left over from siding the sticks and bricks with board and batten. Only thing is, the top is bolted onto the new base using the same brackets from the old table, so to make a bed would have to be unbolted and removed. We don't need the extra bed, but if we did, we could just bolt the old base back on temporarily if we had more than the two of us travelling. Not likely, the trailer is our little escape!

Our Shamrock 25RS has the same table leg design and it is terrible! It is very unstable. We have to be very careful with drinks on the table. I am glad we don't have small children to contend with. In fact my original table was crooked and the dealer replaced it with another table from a different unit. If anyone gets a solution fro this from FR please share.

We have the same issue with our table. I like the mod pictured above and see a project in my future. Nice job !

We are looking at replacing it with a card table, since it is very unlikely we will need to turn the table into a bed.

Any suggestions on a different clip or way to secure it.
How about some pictures? We might get some fixes.

We tried to figure out a way to stabilize the original legs, but could not come up with anything that worked. There are so many hinged places to collapse it that it is darn near impossible to fix!

FYI
I merged the two "Wiggly Table" threads as they began at the same time, are running concurrently and address the same issues.

This is the original table base. I posted them last summer to see if anyone had a fix! There are two hinged areas on each leg. There is a catch on the left leg that when released, the whole thing folds sideways and down to the left. Reminds me of a moose which always seems to me like its legs fold the opposite of how they ought, lol. Anyway, we gave up and constructed the nice wooden base, which looks better anyway.

And I thought Rube Goldberg was dead. Guess not, he is still working on table legs. I think the best solution is the wooden legs with maybe an easy method of removal to make the bed if needed like sliding the legs into long sockets that are screwed & glued to the top and pinned?

Our Wildwood had a very wobbly table also. It is a dual pedestal table with the legs going into cheap, flimsy pole holders that are actually cut in to the floor so that they are flush. There are 2 other pole holders are on the bottom of the table.
What I did was get 2 shower curtain rods that are adjustable. Then I used closet pole holders and screwed them to the bottom of the table and the floor, putting the one on the floor as close to the wheel house as possible. We then turn the shower rods until they are snug and stabilize the table. Very solid.
