Outside Hanging Rail

Our TT has an outside rail used to hang a portable BBQ and a small working table (12" x 12") w/foldout support. We won't be using the BBQ much but would benefit from having a little bigger table, maybe 12" by 36" (longer but not deeper, as to not put too much weight on it). Does any one know where I can get the matching rail to attach to the new table? Thanks!

Camping World has them in the BBQ section, as a stand alone item.

VTX-Al, I saw the one at Camping World Camco Mfg Inc - RV Grill Mounting Rail - Grill Accessories - Camping World but I wasn't sure it is this "side" the one I need. The item description has it as the one that goes on the TT sidewall (which I already have) the one I'm looking for would be the one I would attach to the table itself. Now, maybe these are one and the same and it is just a matter how it is mounted. In other words, if I install this rail (the one CW sells) on the table's lip would it interlock with the rail one on the TT?

Thanks for the time and info.

Hmmmm .... now you have me thinking !! I "believe" that I have seen the rail that mates with the one installed on the sidewall in a recent visit to CW, in fact, I think that both "halves" are available. BUT, I am not absolutely positive. Hopefully, you have a CW close enough to where you live so can check it out in real life. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Helped my dad do the same project for his Jayco PUP a good number of years ago. He had to get the matching rail-half from a Jayco dealer. Because the extending legs that are typically sold seemed flimsey, also bought that from the dealer. Worked well for him until he next upgraded. Sold the "extra" table with the old trailer.

Thanks for the info. I just found this at RV Parts Country Table Support that might do the trick. I just have to make sure that the rail on the TT mates to this one.

Also be careful they dont hold a lot of weight you may have to put bigger screws in it to keep it from pulling out of the wall

Gentlemen, thanks for the warnings. Before purchasing I'll check the rail on the 12" x 12" little table that came with the TT to make sure I'm purchasing the correct one. If not I can always use the complete set on another mod (installing a similar table on the side of the u-shape dinette by the entry way) I have been contemplating. As far as weight, chevy02, you are right this wouldn't hold much before starting to pull out the screws. The idea is for small lightweight items, that always seem to be misplaced. Oh yeah and the decorations my wife has for every camping outing. There will be a full size four-legged table underneath for the heavy stuff.

Again, thanks for the advise!

Frank, is that not a Z channel type item? Both pieces matching or mirrored? I will also agree with others on no weight on that rail. On our old camper it pulled right out the first time we tried to use it. Found the screws to only be screwed into the wall, not into anything structural (not sealed either) the sealant they used around the edge of it was supporting more weight than the screws! I Put longer screws in and placed a 2x4 on inside wall to anchor them to (inside cabinets) and that rail was solid.
