Dinette Leg Problem Solved

My camper was supplied with the folding, freestanding and not stable table support. It was a fight to raise or lower and not stable enough for any activity. After considering the other two post solution used on some campers, I continued to look for something the was strong and easy to move up and down. I found the Springfield Three Stage Table Pedestal that seemed like a good solution.
I had to reinforce the underside of the table and thru bolted the base with
t nuts and stainless fasteners. The unit has some air assist for raising the table and goes up and down with ease. I also added some cleats for the table top to rest on in the lower position for added support. This is a boat product but works great in my rv.
I have been using this all season with great results.Click image for larger version

Neat solution - thanks for sharing.
I looked these up on line - what I was finding was in the $300 price range. Did you find a lower price point? I don't see $300 worth of utility for our situation, but would be in at $100 or under. . .

Thanks

I hear what you are saying about the having to fight with it to raise or lower. Until you spray a shot of WD40 on the pivots and work it in it is a bear to do. The little yellow knob pulled out on about the 3rd time I used it. I ended up turning a knob out of aluminum and putting in a threaded stud and locknut to secure things

The part was not cheap. I searched online and went for the best deal.I do believe it was around $300. I still think this was my only solution. It does work great and is very stable for the grandkids to play at.
