Outside work table that folds up

I don't use the grill that came with my camper so I made a lightweight work table that hangs on the rail and folds up for storage when not in use. I made it from 1/2'' MDO plywood which is a lightweight exterior plywood. This table works great for my Coleman stove. I also mode the table to fit a 2 burner Atwood drop in cook-top, so when I see one on E-bay for a good price I will use that instead of the Coleman stove. The table has 1 coat of exterior primer and 2 coats of exterior paint

Did you have to reinforce the bracket? That is a very nice table you made.

Table weights about 20 lbs, rail is about 35'' wide and seems to be well attached. If it looks like it will come loose I will screw thru the side wall and use nuts on the inside. The rail is opposite where my dinnete bench is so the nut will be bellow the seating area and hidden

Nicely done. It's giving me some ideas since I don't use the grill either.

Very nice! I would think there would be a market for something like that.

Neat job, but looks heavy.

I had the same idea but I went way simpler than you. Here is my creation:

That was my first go around, but I will be cooking on this table and I wanted some protection from wind and I wanted to also protect the camper wall. The table is designed to accept an Atwood 2 burner drop-in cook top. I still however like the simple approach, but has an engineer we like to over design things

Does anyone know if those slide rails are available somewhere? I guess I can search. That gives me some ideas.

You might try Forest River Parts, or Camping World might have them Camco Mfg Inc - RV Grill Mounting Rail - Grill Accessories - Camping World
