Kaadk, if you could take a clearer picture with the table on it's side, I'd appreciate it.

Well JayArras that would be because I wasn't replying to you but to the OP who specifically stated he had the pole style (and I quoted him).

@Wolfpup64: I have the "post" style table legs which fit into a round base secured to the floor and to the bottom of the table. I have had my TT just shy of three (3) years and have had to replace the metal bases three (3) times already. My original bases were cast aluminum and so were the replacements. The table is very wobbly when placed into position and having three (3) g'son's leaning on the table has not helped for sure. The bottom side of these castings is hollow which leaves a very thin area where the legs fit into the base and they break in this area. One thing I have considered is buying/installing a single folding table leg on the bottom of the back side of the table that would reach from the table bottom to the floor. This would prevent the table from rocking back towards the dinette seat when the kids lean on it. I'd like to see the plastic base units, I'm wondering if they might be a bit stronger than the thin cast aluminum units.

An alternate, though expensive, would be a single, telescopic base post from a marine store. We have the same base as Kaadk and it is a bit wobbly but not terrible, so we just live with it.

The table on my 2104S is so wobbly that it's useless. The legs have two or three joints and any amount of slop in any joint is amplified. The braces shown above wouldn't particularly help me, because the worst joints are about 1/3 of the the way up the legs. I'll probably replace them with something that won't fold up since we will never use the table for a bed. I also thought about just bolting a strip of metal on the back side of the legs spanning all of the joints to hold them rigid.

My Heritage Glen came with a pedestal dining table. When we first got it home the table had fallen over onto the chairs! It took for ever for the repair. The second time it happened I built a butterfly leaf table to replace it. (Sorry, I didn't record the process. google butterfly leaf, it's not for beginner carpentry skills) The new table is 48" and extends to 60". I attached one end to the wall and made a single leg for the far end. We can now seat 4 without bumping elbows and have family style service on the same table.

Camper Al. Thanks for the input. A butterfly leaf table is a good idea. For now, I have solved the wobbly table problem by drilling out the rivets that the table legs hinge on and replaced them with 5/16" 20 pitch bolts and nylock nuts. I loosen the bolts slightly and the table folds up normally so it can be stowed. When I set it up, I tighten the bolts (takes less than a minute) and it's rock solid, except for the carpet it stands on.



I'd like to bolt a table to the floor, but the slide out looks like there is just one layer on the bottom of the slide. I'm afraid I'll mess it up if I bolt or screw into it. The table doesn't wobble any more, so maybe I'll just quit while I'm ahead.
