Frank, That's exactly what I'd like to do. Where did you get the longer bracket for the back edge of your shelf/table?

Looks great! I'm wanting to build a similar table for ours (but a simpler version ). Our previous Flagstaff came with a small table, but our new fiver did not. Where did you get the rail to attach to your table that hooks into the rail on the camper?

Thanks for the help!

My TT came with a smaller 12" x 12" work table for hanging outside. I removed its rail, cut it in half and installed both pieces 18" apart on the new 36" x 12" table. I used two shelf brackets w/4" hinges (for folding when not in use and in storage compartment) for support and at the point where the wooden brackets make contact with the TT wall I installed nylon nail on table glides (see pic below)

Nice job. Do the leg supports fold for storage?

Anyone know what the maximum weight the bracket can support? I purchased a new bbq that it is 20+lbs.

Great idea. I wonder if I can mount the rail myself and add my own? Something like that might void a warranty...

That should not void your warranty. Just make sure you seal around it very well after you mount it.
