Exterior table

I'd like to make/buy a small table for cooking to fasten to the track on the outside of my pop up beside where the cook top hangs. Has anyone seen or made something like this?

I had the same idea myself. Haven't built/bought anything yet, but I did find these pictures online somewhere (most likely here at FRF or RV.net). IIRC, I found a mounting track online somewhere (Dyers maybe?).

Thanks Green.
That's exactly what I was thinking connection-wise, I wanted to extend out approximately 3-4 feet w/a support leg to either the frame or ground. The ground is a challenge because the ground height will vary but would allow a longer projection. A frame support will add stress to the track and limit length to say 30"-36".

A word of caution, check to make sure you have a backer board inside the trailer to insure the rail screws have something to grab. Better yet is to replace the wood/sheet metal screws with ss stove bolts, flat washers and nuts to take the added load.

You may also want to build in some type of swing down support to take stress off the track. As old coot mentioned, those screws are not always into the strongest material.
