Cool After-market Counter Extender for X-Lite 261BHXL?

Having a tough time finding an after-market counter extender for my 2014 Wildwood X-Lite 261BHXL. I could put one on the right side of the counter between the open space and couch and let it fold down. But, where in tarnation could I find one? I went to Camping World this weekend but they didn't have any you could simple install - the one they had was a free standing table.

Appreciate suggestions!

I found this, which would be great. I was just hoping I could find something that matched our counter top or same coloring as our sides. Amazon.com: Camco 43421 Oak Accents Countertop Extension: Automotive

I may end up doing some personal modifications instead. If so, I could use this for a bracket (http://amzn.com/B002UC2UTK) and then find the closest thing I could to the same counter top or at least nice wood or perhaps black top (to match black appliances).

Need to think about it...

This is what I did: Sink cutting boards and counter extension . We have had ours for 3 years and love it, use it all the time. I have found that I leave it up 99% of the time and might have gotten away with a non-folding counter.


I had found pre fab extension but was not a good match and I wanted a little bigger.

I might have to just hire you to do mine! LOL. I like what you did. My issue isn't that I can't do it myself or even necessarily have time, but the fact I am one lazy SOB!

Any independent cabinet maker can make one for you and match your counter top too. My cousin is a cabinet maker and said it would be an easy fix. Let me know If you need his number

Thanks. Will confer with the "boss" when she gets back from visiting her sister in NoVa. Might be ideal situation!

Were you able to order it direct through them? That's exactly what I want.
